Have You Missed Me?

I hope you believed me when I told you this month was going to be an intense one for me.  My father had surgery which was bookended by my mother having cataract surgery on her eyes.  They split that up where you only have one eye done at a time.  However, after she had the first eye done poor mom broke her foot.  Needless to say we’ve been having lots of fun up here on cripple hill.  I won’t even go into all the fun and overtime I’ve had to put in at work lately.  The important thing is…

I’ve been able to get back into my craft room!!!

It a sanctuary, a release, a place to unwind.  I know you all know what I’m talking about.

I was especially inspired when we got a new sponsor for Whimsical Wednesday and I have been drooling over their stamps for quite a while.  Let me just tell you, you can’t help but be inspired especially when I tell you that you will also get a chance to win some of these beauties!!  You will have until May 11th, 8 PM CST to get your project posted on the Diedrich Dare blog using the sketch to be entered for a chance at a $20 Gift Certificate.

We also have some guest sketchers for this month (yep that’s right I’m not telling you just yet who our sponsor is yet).  Each week we will have a different guest.  This week is Andrea’s little sweetie Kaitlyn.

katie sketch001Our sponsor, you ask?  The wonderfully generous Lynn over at SweetPea Stamps.
