Hi there. 😉
There are only 40 days until our local schools are back in session. Though I know that the heat will continue on through a few weeks in September, the thought of nearing the end of the ‘crazy’ season (a.k.a. Summer) is comforting to me. We’ve had some changes going on at our house, and I anticipate more as we head into a new year of lessons in the fall. I’ll have a 4th grader and two 1st graders in our little academy, and I’m looking forward to all that the new year holds. But it will definitely be a balancing act!
I’m sad to say that, though I had hoped to still have time for it, blogging and keeping up with craft challenges is about to take a big hit. There has not been an official announcement yet, but I have resigned from the Fusion DT in order to free up a bit of time and to consolidate and focus my crafting opportunities. I think I might be looking at only one card being created per week. And I think that might be on my LUCKY weeks!
I’ve done a whole lot of soul searching over the past year, and especially the last few weeks and months. It is a challenge to balance everything that I am committed to doing in my life, especially with my health concerns. But I feel confident that I have chosen the better part, and there is no more worthy cause to sink my efforts into, in my mind. I know I’ll be able to set aside a little time for crafting, but I am just not able to keep up with particular crafting schedules such as DT responsibilities require.
I guess I’m saying, be ready for a whole lot of sporadic randomness here at Laughadaisy! There’s so much going on in the crafty blogosphere that I’m sure I’ll hardly be missed. But hopefully I’ll have a little more time to comment on blogs of choice now, and I’ll be happy to see you all here whenever that is. 😉
Here is a card for Freshly Made Sketches #94:
I thought I was using the current Color Throwdown colors, but discovered the Island Indigo was supposed to be Bermuda Bay, when I went back to check the graphic. So, scratch that. And I wish I had used some varying sizes of the sequins rather than all the same size.
Supplies are listed below.
