Must. Have. Brains.
It's been a little bit quiet around these parts....
At the beginning of February, I started working again after being at stay at home mom for almost seven years. I really love my job at a local shoe boutique because the owner lets me work around being home for my kids, however this has left me very little time to craft and I haven't seemed to have found the balance just yet between work/family and of course hobby ;)
You are wondering where this is all going I'm assuming? Well, because I have been working during the hours that my kids are in school, I no longer have as much spare time to make as many fun things. Sooooo.... after much thought, I have decided that I need to pair back on some of my more recently joined design teams and that means that I will be saying goodbye for now to my friends at Stamping Bella, and goodbye to by friends at Stamper's Dream at the end of the month *sigh...sob*
I really had to think hard on this one and I had to put my family first until I can achieve the balance that I was looking for. As Spring is just around the corner and so are our many family camping trips I think that some extra family time will be very much appreciated from each member of my little family :D I have to admit that the thought of not making cards almost everyday is a little bit scary for me since I have been keeping that pace for quite sometime.
So with all of that said, I don't have much to show you today other than a cute little card that I made for Jessica to send out to one of her wholesalers :D This little grim reaper is from the Hauntingly Delightful set and I don't get to use these fun little images as much as I would like to. I water coloured the grim reaper with my tombows and a water brush and then cut him out and popped him up on my sponged background. I ended up keeping the layout simple and tested my sewing skill's on Corinna's Janome Mini while Angela and I were at her house earlier this month.:)
Thank you for joining the grim reaper and myself today :) I know that with me working that I may not have as many blog posts for you but please be rest assured that I will still be creating lovely things with both my Stamping Bella stamps and Stamper's Dream goodies, just not on a design team rotation but I will post when I can :D You will still be seeing some Stamper's Dream creations from me regularly until the beginning of April and can always see what's new with TSG when you come here :)
Thanks for being understanding and see you all when I can!
