Hello everyone!!!

I'm still out here. It's just been a really busy last couple of weeks. I have done a mini relocation of my space since I can't be on stairs. It is so hard to do what I do and have all my stuff in one location and then try to scrapbook in another. Especially when you have 3 card orders going and one possible wedding invite for wedding in July. But that isn't a complaint at all, just a minor vent! lol lol

Let's see what is going on, nothing but work really. I get so swamped sometimes with details on a card that I tend to overdo them. But these last 3 orders went so smoothly I know that I am due for a lot of work on something else in the near future. I wish that I could post the pics of the cards, but that can't be done until after the customer receives them and the event is over. But it is the cutest card, I hope that when I am 50 my kids/family want to do something just as special for me.

Let's see what else is going on...oh, I am trying to find a great deal on peacock feathers. It is turning out to be an adventure. I could order them online but they are costly. But I am going to wait on a vendor that I used for a wedding for a friend I did awhile ago to get back to me. I have heard that peacock feathers are becoming the trend so maybe I will find a good deal.

And just a quick update on pregnancy...all is well. I ended up at maternal assessment again but all in all everything is going ok. Well kind of...I was told I am thinning. And since I am only 31 weeks (32 tomorrow) that is a concern. But I am being good, and doing my very very best to follow all restrictions. It seems easier now that I have a work space on the first floor.

I hope everyone is doing fine...and enjoying great weather! It is all rainy here...almost looks and feels like fall instead of Spring.

Today I sat in my livingroom daydreaming of what it would be like to live in a warmer climate all year around. I think Vele started it by saying that he wanted to move to Arizona (weeks ago). I said yes, of course we could move there and we looked at houses forever. Now we aren't rich or even really sure that is a great place to live but he has family there and we wouldn't be that far from more family (on his side)who live in Cali. So the idea sounds awesome to me. Shoot he could say lets move to Tim-Buck-too (however it's spelled lol)and I would say ok. But Phoenix does seem like a better fit. So today I was daydreaming after the boys left for school and LeiLani was still was just seemed so nice to live somewhere where it was warmer all year around. And maybe have a pool and a nicer house. But then I started remembering all those great houses that were worth double what they were listing for and I wondered how is the job market? But it would still be an awesome idea!

Well I am sitting here wondering what to post about and wish I could share all the thousands of things that are roaming around in my mind, but it would be a really weird post. And my kids would die of starvation...what's for dinner tonight? Well it would surely have to be that shepard's pie that I started almost an hr ago. I think I let mine simmer too long because I like well cooked and tender ground beef. Plus I simmer on lower than low. But the kids are driving me nuts. So I will have to get it moving soon. I realized now after posting that this might be the last shepard's pie until fall. I tend not to cook this in the summer. Only because summer is for grillin', summer salads, watermelon, and ice cream! I can't wait it's just the beginning of spring here and actually it's one of the best days in awhile people are out walking their dogs and I watched some kids play soccer in the park while waiting on my boys to get home and of course I let them run out right after homework and a quick snack to play in the park. LeiLani just about had a fit so I took her in the backyard.

Ok I'm off to take care of finishing touches but before I go I just saw the sweetest was simple but to me it was sweet. A elderly couple walking around the park holding hands. It was so sweet! I hope that one day, Vele and I will live to enjoy those ages and still want to have each other around...but more importantly want to hold hands and look at each other. Because he is my sweetheart!

A quick note...

Just dropping in to add a quick note. I am still trying to relax a little. We had company over yesterday and although I am on moderate rest right now, I had to make sure to do a few things around the house (nothing to much) and then I just sat back and let my hubby host. I really wish he wouldn't have invited new company over but that is just how he rolls.

I am also excited to be working on Mother's day cards. They are really cute. I also worked on finally decorating the MM fifth Avenue album that I got last yr to put my pages for 2007 to 2009. I like the cover but think it is missing something.

Also I sold a few items this last week on ebay, some on twopeas and even got an Easter card order request. It was a great week for making $$. But it was a little busy with runs to the post office, I went on Thursday because it was also the day that I had my Dr's appt but then a family member helped out with a few runs also.

I am hoping to relax a little this week (maybe) but this week is also spring break for us. I only wish it was spring weather also. It has snowed one day and was so cold the other that I thought it would surely snow.

Well I gotta go but before I do here is a pic of the album cover
