Re-gaining control of my schedule...








Well, you know that when I am not taking the time to blog, that I am REALLY running behind on my deadlines. All of the events of last week with DH's work definitely took a toll on all of my work, but I am starting to get back on top of things. I finally got the computer work done for two articles yesterday. Today I did my work using the new EK Success Wedding line for my LSS (pictured here). ***Edited to add: the Bazzill cardstock color for these pieces is Lagoon.***

I ended up pushing back the publication date for the next Cropper's Cottage newsletter and that is on the agenda for the rest of the day for today and tomorrow...lots of editing and several projects to complete for that so I am STILL really busy! But it should go out next Tuesday.

In the meantime, we had a family trip out to the beach on Saturday which was wonderful. DH has a jeep that we bought when we got back to the country, but we haven't had a chance to take the top off until this weekend...it was the perfect day for it. It has been a while since we got to go on a family outing so it was really nice! I may have even gotten some good pics...I need to download them and see!

I have also been completely wrapped up in the Grey's Anatomy season finale. Can you say OMG! The writing on that show is amazing!!! I am STILL reeling from last night's episode. I wish that I had it recorded so that I could re-watch it. I didn't start watching the show until the Superbowl so I am thinking now that I need to go out and buy the original season DVD....TOTALLY HOOKED!!!

In other news, I received my copy of Scrapbook Premier which is a retailer publication that I wrote an article for a few months ago. I had never worked with them before and they pretty much gave me the assignment without even looking at any of my writing work so it never seemed like a real thing. Well, the article was in there exactly the way that I wrote it. I am really pleased...a whole 6 pages...I will scan it in the next few days so that you can see it!

I apologize for my absense! I just printed off that artwork creative prompt and am getting ready to go create a layout using it as inspiration. Have you done anything with it yet? If so, give me a link!
smiles,
Christi
