My friend shared the following cartoon on her facebook page:
And I have to say, she looks like I feel! All three boys have been home from school for 2 weeks during their Fall Break. And there is still one more week to go! I think I may lose it before then.
Only two things saved them today from being permanent residents of their bedrooms:
1. The weather took a turn today. Instead of being hot and miserable outside, we opened the doors and windows to enjoy the suddenly cooler tempuratures.
Okay, so its not exactly scarf weather yet, but I'll take what I can get!
2. They let me have some crafting time today. It was much needed and much appreciated! I went from to over the course of the afternoon.
Would you like to see what I made? This idea is from Dawn a fellow CTMH Consultant over at Stamp Till Dawn. After seeing her video, I created my own shadowbox card using this month's Stamp of the Month, Holiday Magic.
Stamps: Holiday Magic (October 2011 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH Desert Sand, New England Ivy, Tulip
Papers: CTMH Believe Reflection Kit, Kraft Cardstock
Accessories: CTMH Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel, Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
I had fun making this and I'm sure the ladies in my monthly project classes will, too! Thank you Dawn, for such an inpiring project!

I know it has been forever since I've blogged. We are still working on the house and I find all the boxes and tools and chaos a little distracting for my creativity. The good news is we've made the first step towards working on my own craft room...we took all the boxes out of it and I have decided on colors and furniture. Now, I just have to rob a bank so it can all come true as quickly as I'd like!
