Busy little bee that's me!

I must learn to say NO. I must learn to say NO.

I have to keep repeating that to myself over and over again until I LEARN TO SAY NO!

I have so much on my plate right now and it's all my own doing....

I just finished making a prototype of the Grade 7 Farewell Invitations for my son's school. It's just a simple 4x4 explosion card - someone else is typing the inside details so this one will be used as a blank sample. There will be a 3 3/4 inch square RVSP inserted inside as well as some star shaped silver confetti. I think that they will be quick to assemble but it sure took a long time for me to come up with something! I'm handing it over to the committee this afternoon and I hope they like them...

I'm also working on my little side-side-business and have an order to fill for my anti-static bags. It's taken me 2 weeks to dig out my serger and get this little production line going again!

When I'm done this I've got to make up the kits for my monthly Scrapping Club (meeting this Friday morning), the swaps for the SU! Vancouver Regional (I've decided what I'm doing, I've got the supplies and I'm going on Saturday!!!) and then I've got samples to make for the upcoming Kids Classes - Mother's Day projects I'll be doing on May 8 & 10.

I'm going to use the Scenic Drive Marina paper that I picked up the other day. Here's a sneak peek at the paper. I'll be making the samples soon and will post here when I'm done.

I have so many projects on the go right now! Throw in the fact that I fired my cleaning lady and you can imagine what my house looks like...

Luckily my husband is away this week so I don't need to tidy up at the end of each day - I'm able to finish off and tidy as I go along.

As long as the kids are picked up from school and they and dog are fed it's all good!


  1. When I was in grade 8 I took sewing, and I had to make a pair of boxers. I used the same fabric that you used for your static bags! Only mine had a blue background. I still have them and wear them as PJ's! too funny :)

  2. Alice I keep forgetting how young you are!

    My daughter just made the pj bottoms in grade 8 sewing this year. She used a pink flannel with cherries on it. I considered making the bags out of that fabric but there wasn't enough leftovers!
