Back to School

I have been a poor blogger and will probably be one for the next 2 1/2 years. I have started back to school for my Bachelor's degree in nursing. It has been over 30 years since I have been in school!

Not sure what to expect, but so far my first class- Philosophy of Nursing is a lot of work. 6-8 chapters to read each week. Papers to write. My first paper took me all day Saturday to write! I still have 2 more to write. George tells me it will get easier. I sure hope so.

I did realize that to keep my sanity I must keep on creating. That means finding the time to fit in my stamping. I have decided to get up early on Saturdays and give myself 2 hours to be artistic.

My hats go off to all you students!

I will see you all when I can!

Fall for Memory Box

 I spent Saturday at the grand reopening of  One Little Spark in NJ. While I am a Memory Box designer and Dave would gladly send me the Catalina wreath die, you know how us stampers are, we have to have things immediately!! So I gladly handed Pat Thorpe my charge card for the Catalina wreath die. I had an awesome time with it. The above fall card was my first and then I had to try a few others.

If you go to Memory Box's Outside the Box blog on Tuesday Sept. 6th. I will have a step by step on how I created the Catalina wreath embellishment on the cards.

Sorry I have been a poor blogger lately,  followers.  As the saying goes "sometimes life gets in the way......"

Happy Fall Everyone,
