long time, no post

I'd love to say that I've been away on an exotic, tropical, vacation somewhere since my birthday and that's why I haven't posted in so long but neh. I've just been busy. :)

I've been working on my book - getting the little straggler things taken care of. The scheduled release date is June 12th. No concrete info yet as to where it will be but I'm pretty sure Joanns, and maybe Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I'll be sure to post when I know for sure.

For all the designers who have shared their work with me to use in the book, you'll be getting your work back in June with a copy of the book! If you'd like your stuff back sooner, let me know and they can send your work back the end of May and your copy of the book in June.

One of the ladies at Scrapbook Mania gave me a Crafters Workshop doodling template to play with, so I put this page together. (That page ^^^^^^^ up there.) I used Sakura Moonlight pens and a white Souffle pen, black cardstock and that's about it! Click on the image for the full picture.

My son, Cory scored a giant goal today in his soccer game. I'm proud of him every day. Not because he scored a goal but because he's just such a great kid. Not perfect, but really wonderful anyway. What an awesome feeling it is to be a mom. :)

If you live near me in Alabama, I hope you found something fun to do today inside the house on this gloomy, rainy day. If you don't, I hope you had sunshine and got outside to do something fun!
