Seriously, I Love You Guys!

I am so grateful to you, readers, especially for those that responded to my post about feeling down. It's so nice to hear that I'm not the only one who struggles with feeling that way and also with feeling guilty about needing to get away. After reading through your ideas, I realized that I have packed my daily schedule pretty tight. It wasn't intentional, but sometimes things unexpectedly overlap and suddenly the day is just crazy.

I think I will take Friday off and step away for a bit. Maybe I'll take a trip up to Ikea just to look around (that place is like a field trip for grown-ups). Or maybe I'll head into Salt Lake and hit Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware for some visual eye candy. And maybe I'll drag a friend or two out for lunch with me so I can have some grown-up conversation. But I'm DEFINETLY accepting a friend's invitation to hang out and chat later that night. I was feeling like I should do other things, but I realize that I need to have that time with some great girls.So thank you for making me realize that it's ok to take that time! You guys are the BEST!

On a work note, I have a "Work It Out Wednesday" tutorial up on the Create Blog (for Scrapbook Trends Magazine). I was thinking of doing something else, but when I saw that cute bee border strip paper from Carolee's Creations and realized some of my Hero Arts stamps would fit inside the strip I knew what I wanted to do.

Today's tutorial shows you how to use stamps to dress up a pattern within patterned paper. Easy to do, but it really makes patterned paper POP! I hope you'll check it out!

For the supply list and additional photos, you can check on the Create Blog here.

And thank you again for both listening and really understanding. I do love you guys!


  1. love the layout!

  2. Adorable! Have a fun day!

  3. my girls went back to school yesterday, and i didn't have any daycare kids. finally, a day off to do whatever i wanted, without interruption. i felt the need to take full advantage of it, and get a million things done. but instead, i went out to a 2 hour lunch with a friend. something i never do. and it was good for me, to have some adult conversation and socializing time. i'm realizing that it's important to work that into our lives more ... even if we feel like we don't have the time.

    and now i'm running around like crazy today, trying to do all the things that i felt i should have done yesterday. lol!
