...my BFF Tracy will be here in a little over a week. It seems like forever since she made her flight, and I have so much to do this week leading up to Eric's Graduation on Thursday night, and then his Graduation party on Saturday so that will make the time go faster.
I also have classes to plan too. My TLC class is filling up quickly, the morning is pretty much full and only a few seats left in the night class. I also have a 10/10/20 Birthday card class in June, and I need to get those cards designed as well.
When I was at home (my hubby gets mad when I call Canada home...cause he says Arizona is my home - but I think of them both as home...when I was in Canada, I said home, and meant AZ) last month, while I was at Victopia I sat and colored a bunch of images. To me, coloring is peaceful and makes me happy, and well you can visit and not pay super attention to what you are doing in a way, unlike cutting out...another thing I love to do, but that takes a good light and concentration, nothing makes me madder then being almost done cutting something out and then crap...you cut off a piece of leaf or something and have to start all over.
I remember growing up and one night after supper doing dishes, there was this one dish that was so crusted with food, you know the kind "Mum I'm gonna let it soak" cause you figure you would let it soak all night and then someone else would wash it...but not this time, I scrubbed and scrubbed that dang dish, only to drop the freakin' thing when I was drying it and smashed it all to heck...I was like should have thrown it away to begin with...ha!
So anyway, one of the images I colored while I was at Vicki's was this little farmer girl from The Greeting Farm. A few months back I won a contest that The Greeting Farm was having and I got this set for free, as well as an Anya set (I also colored an Anya but I have not made her into a card yet)...anyway I colored all these things so I figured it would be easy to whip up cards when I needed them, and this one I know exactly who is going to get it.
