Quick Update

I am getting ready to head to work, so will have to keep this short. Just wanted to post an update on what I am working on. I am still waiting on my recent orders to get here. has been pretty quick with their shipping, even if they did split the order in to three shipments, two of which have arrived. JoAnn's has processed the order and it is scheduled to arrive May 7. My Sizzix and Stampin Up orders for some reason are still being processed, no shipment date yet. It would seem that if they are going to take your money the second you submit the order, they can at least send the order out with in a reasonable time.

I did a little local shopping over the week end as well adding to my supplies and some great tools. Love my Crop A Dile big bite. I can honestly say that everything I bought was on sale, most for 40% off. Glad I did the bulk of the shopping on Friday, seems the sales changed on Sunday.

I knew that Saturday would be a hard day. It was my dad's birthday, he passed away almost 6 years ago, it is still hard. I don't think I handled the death well and it has recently started to really come back on my mind. They are good memories though. Along those thoughts, my youngest son, 19, took a photo of dad taken in his army uniform and did a pencil drawing of him. It is just awesome.

The photo:

Wasn't he handsome?

The drawing:

Like I said, I think he did an awesome job.

Of course, it was National Scrapbooking Weekend and in honor of that the local scrapbooking store had a marathon cropping session. They had 8 hour sessions, I went on Sat. for the 6 PM - 2 AM session, which I only lasted about half way through.

I will post details and some photos of that this evening.
