Project Life Update

Hi, everyone!  I promised an update on my Project Life, and this is a pretty big one!   It's been a crazy kind of week, so I'm glad I'm actually getting it posted now!  On Tuesday, I had to get my gallbladder removed, as I had stones that were giving me a lot of problems.  I didn't expect some of the after effects, but it's getting better now.  I haven't taken a pain pill since Thursday morning, so I must not be too uncomfortable anymore!

My husband's hip surgery has been pushed back a month, so at least that's a little ways off yet.  He's still not sure he really wants to do it - he's not so sure about putting the business in the hands of me and our boys for a while.  I can kind of understand, but I think he really needs to do it, so I hope he still will!

Oh, and a couple of weeks ago, our little guy burned his had pretty badly.  Dave had put a new exhaust pipe on one of his lawn tractors, and it was nice and shiny.  He kept telling Jake not to touch it, but he got distracted by some of the other boys one time, and of course, Jake touched it.  Poor guy.  I was about 15 miles away when it happened, and when I got that phone call, I don't know how I got home so quickly, but I sure did!  Anyway, after going to wound care for 2 weeks, we've got it unwrapped, and it looks pretty good now.

Now, back to Project Life.  I'm not doing it a week at a time, so this encompasses many weeks.  And I can't believe how I felt so caught up when I got these done last week, only to last night see that I need to print a BUNCH more photos and do several more pages!!  But, here's where I am so far.

I'm still very much loving this - just wishing I could find a way to stay caught up with it!!
I will tell you I have fallen in love with just keeping a bunch of 6x6 and 8x8 pads for doing this!  All my supplies right now fit in a fairly small basket that I can carry anywhere, along with a trimmer and my book.  If I feel like I need something else (like Thickers or something), I just add those later when I want to go get them.

Hi, friends! I know, it's been way too long again! One of these days, I'm sure I'll get to start crafting and blogging more often, but that just hasn't happened yet. Life just keeps getting in the way, you know? Anyway, I got notification that my REBECCA coupon at Stop and Scrap expires on Monday, and I wanted to make sure you got one last chance to use it! You can use this more than once, but Monday, it's gone. Bummer. They have two of October Afternoon's new collection up for preorder right now, and I am so in love with both of them! The code REBECCA will get you 12% off your order!

In other news, I just saw this preview of Authentique's new line - Carefree. Wow! I am so in love with this!! And the quality of Authentique's products is incredible, so this will be great!

And one more little note - I just saw that the new French General line from Jolee's is starting to be come available. Oh, if only I had lots of money to buy it all!!! Hopefully I'll be able to get a few pieces though...

I have been working a little bit on my Project Life, and hope to have an update for you on that within the next few days (or weeks...)

Take care, friends!
