Long time no see!

Hey there.

I haven't been on here in forever! I apologize. I am currently attending college fulll time to become a Nurse, and I am holding down a part time job as a lunch lady. I haven't had much time to be crafting or even breath. LOL. I am going to try to start updating this more often, once I get a few cards done!

Well first off, the twins are now a 17 months old. Almost 18 months. A year and a half! They have gotten too big. I can't beleive how fast they grow. They can walk, run, eat normal people food. Even form simple sentences. For instance, when Audrey gets in trouble she says 'MAMA A BABY', meaning take pity on her because she is a baby. Her grandmother always uses the excuse 'aww shes just a baby momma, she doesn't know any better'. So Audrey picked up on that. Mary will say 'The ball' or 'Ginger Ball' when she is playing with our dog. It is really neat how much they have grown up!

Recently I have been looking at "The Greeting Farm" stamps. They are just about the cutest things ever! I am hooked on the Anya stamps. I have been testing out some copic markers too of my moms. I am hoping to get a card done within the next few days so I can post it here. I still do stampin up, I use a lot of their cardstock and colors, I just really like the designs for Anya in "The Greeting Farm".

Well that is all for now. I have to get up early to feed swarms of hungry 1st and 2nd graders tomorrow! Take care everyone! :]
