Major Changes

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. Since that time, I have had some major life changes. We decided to move back to our hometown, closer to family, and life has been completely hectic. Of course, it didn't help that we made this decision with less than a month left before school started, so we were scrambling to get school changes made, etc. Because it was such a last minute decision, we decided to let the kids keep some of their extra-curricular activities to help ease the transition, but that means driving nearly an hour each direction for the activities several times a week.

The good news has been that the kids love their new schools, we're closer to family and small-town life has been a good "life experience" for the kids. The downside is that all the driving for extra-curriculars leaves me little time for scrapbooking, family dinners or general "down-time". The crafting I do right now has to be portable, so I've been knitting quite a lot.

I'm still "repping" Close To My Heart, but I think I'm my own best customer right now. No time for workshops, clubs or gatherings.
Anyway, I have been creating, and I plan to take some time to post what I've been working on in the last few months. I'm going to start with the most recent creation that I gave away this week. A co-worker's wife had a baby early this week, so I gave this blanket to them.

Here's the card. It came from my "stash". If I remember correctly, I made it from a kit I got from the Paper Wishes catalog.

I'll be back soon with some more of my creations.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a sweet comment today! Glad that you are back and totally understand sometimes "life" just doesn't let us fit in everything we want but spending time with your kids are much much more rewarding and one day we will all have more time to craft and then we will be sitting around wishing we had the kids back home!! Hugs, Leanne

The blanket is beautiful! Wow!!! I will eventually teach myself to knit I am sure. But not yet! The card is so precious too. You have been truly busy my friend! Glad you are getting settled into a life that suits you and your family. I am a small town girl, and I wouldn't have it any other way! :) Take care.
