Welcome to blog post #2 for the day. If you didn't see my blog post from earlier today, take a look at it down below. It is still quite astonishing!
Today's post is a bit random, but hopefully you will bear with me. I do finally have some art to share, but first I must confess...I broke my rule on Friday...I did not finish my article. Kat decided at 10:30 am that her napping was through for the day so I flat didn't get a chance to get it done on Friday (because it is hard to type with a little one trying to help.) And since I didn't get it done Friday, there was no rush to get it done over the weekend since I doubt my editor will look at it until tomorrow. So I have completed some art without first completing my article. BUT the article is next on my list of things to do today (after I finish this blog post!)
But back to the art. It isn't anything too astounding today. I was definitely in a blue and brown mood. First, my card.
This card features another one of the Rubber Romance stamps. I also used one of the Inque Boutique stamp sets to make the Relax sentiment. The papers are Prima and the brad is Making Memories.
Now to talk about gratefulness. Yesterday I never got the chance to post what I was grateful for so I have two things to post about today.
Yesterday I was grateful that DH is here right now to do things like watch Kat while I go to the store. Starting in January, he is deploying so I try to really appreciate those things while I can.
My SIL, Alison, started a blog a few months back and all of us siblings tend to have way too much fun in her comments section. I am so grateful for that connection to my family who all live about 1500 miles away. Thanks, Alison!
And now for my second art piece to share. Back when I started the 21 day challenge here, I created a small journal to keep my daily lists and food journal in. I have continued doing that ever since and my current one is about full so it was time to make a new one. This is my new journal:
I used my new Cornish Heritage Farms/Thomas Kincade stamp. I also used a Rhonna Farrer snowflake swirl stamp, another MM brad, and Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers.
And that is where I am going to have to end today's post. I have more to talk about, but this post has already taken me an hour and a half and the guys are home now, so I probably should go spend a little bit of time with them before Sunday is over.
