The good news is that I heard from Ben this morning. He isn't there yet, but he is getting closer. He is in Qatar and thinks that he will make it into Iraq tomorrow. After 2 days of airports and airplanes, he is exhausted so I know that he just wants to get there at this point. It was awesome to start my day hearing his voice...a wonderful Valentines surprise.
I got a layout done yesterday from some of the photos that we took the day that he left. When Kat wakes up, I will hang this on her wall (at least until her daddy gets back.) We are trying to put photos of him all around the house because she is petrified of strangers and I don't want her to get that way about him.
This layout was inspired by Creative Prompt #30. The papers here are Collage Press and the embellishments are Making Memories, Prima, and just some random buttons.
My weekend was pretty eventful, but so was the craft world. The Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) show was this past weekend and was officially, Unity Stamp Company's first debut. It sounds like they were a huge hit which is so exciting. Angela is amazing, the images are beautiful, and the system is ground-breaking. Over at Craft Critique, Unity was chosen as one of their day 1 picks of the day and there is a video on the site which shows the booth and how the stamp system works...go check it out!
