I'm not lost..I just took a detour!

Did you think I got lost??? I have to say I was beginning to wonder myself! It's been a busy time around here a few not so good things but overall good. But, things are almost "normal" now so i hope to be back almost daily ;)

Mid-terms were this week, I did really well on those and got my first paper back with a 99%. I am planning on taking Photography next semester so that one will be lots of fun , I think.

The weather is cooling off here. I am missing the freedom of summer already but am looking forward to change. I am one of those strange people who actually *like* change. I love to rearrange things, repaint thing, redo and renew. Plus, there is always something exciting on the way if you like change :)

I got a great surprise last week! After 2 1/2 years of working with CardMaker magazine I finally made the cover!! It was even better because of several reasons. The first reason is because it uses some of the AWESOME metallics from Prism (which we are featuring at CPS this week!) and Cosmo Cricket which I just adore! But also this one has special meaning for another reason..the stamp on the front. This stamp was given to me by one of my best friends. She is one of those friends that even though not really into crafts always supports me and gets excited for me when something good happens. I think that is one of the reasons I love her so much. She has such a caring heart and is always looking for ways to bless other people and not looking for something in return. So this was special to me because even though it's not her "thing", she gets to be a part of it too :)

Well, it's starting to rain here....which means I'll be booted of here very soon. More later!
