whew! what a week!

We spent just a wonderful month with my 7 year-old nephew and, just this week, 8 lovely days with my brother, SIL & older nephew. Older Nephew will stay a few more days just to get some fun time in with us. :) We are exhausted and spent a lot of time in the sun... got picture to prove it: 260 + 127 + 17 +287 + 411 + about 200 = 1302 pictures on the month!! Holy wow! Good thing I don't scrap every living picture I take, huh?

*Back to work now, have about 4 weeks left of summer hours.

*Might join the cast of Pippin around here community theatre.

*Been having a great time (in my "spare" time) working on kit projects for my TTT August Kit - Chatterbox Botanico and MME 29th Street Market - plus LOTS of other goodies. See here for details.

*Wednesday is fun around here: My ScrapStreet.blogspot.com Digi Dashboard post goes up, as does some more work @ the TTT board!

*Looking forward to a little bit slower summer from this point!

exciting week ahead!

I'll be a bit scarce this week - it's going to be a doozy!
eta: there is good news, too - read to the end!

We start vacation bible week tomorrow - theme is Game Day Central and it should be a blast! I'm a little nervous about being a small group leader, but I get to work with 3rd graders which I'm totally buzzed about! I can't wait for the latter part of the week when the kids are asked to give their heart to Jesus. I'm going to try to save the tears till Thursday!

I also go back to work tomorrow, too. Really looking forward to (1) summer workouts and (2) working during the day! The girls are already prepared so it should be a great summer just creating and fixing and perfecting. Plus, I should start choreographing this weekend! First floor music up is a for a talented kid and it's almost belly dancing music - it rocks! We have to say good bye - NO! "See ya later" to one of our nicest and hardest working kids as she travels to Rhode Island for a year with her miliary family; we'll miss her, but we know she'll work hard and return to us strong and Kennett ready! Love you DG!

So with VBC in the morning, work in the afternoon, and family time in the evening, this week will be tough but fun and quick! Looking forward to next week when I should get my morning online time back and maybe even fit in a birthday celebration. ;)

If ya need me, you know where to find me! I'm only an email away!

eta!!! I'm totally stoked to accept a dt position at TransparentTouches.com! You know I've been a fan for a lonnnnnnnnng time and I'm honored and excited, even through today's complete exhaustion! More to come!

someone's excited!

Happy 4th of July to all my U.S. friends!!
Little McKenna actually hid from the fireworks on the 3rd, but she seems pretty excited for tonight's. I know this is silly, but she's just so funny!

Ok, to listen, you'll have to turn off my music. I can't figure out how to do it on Playlist, so go all the way down to the bottom of this blog and the Playlist is the 1st thing in the center bottom footnote.

top 25 so far ~

...and I'm so honored! MyScrapbookNook has chosen me in a multitude of talent, as one of the top 25 finalists for their new dt. I'm both proud and honored and giddy at the thought! I'm okay with whatever happens next. Whether I'm chosen for the next few steps, or need some more room to grow, this was a nice pat on the back. Look, I only apply to forums that I think I would be a good fit or match - I don't just apply to apply for supply, kwim? So to make it a little further on a board that I grew to love so quickly is a nice affirmation. And the talent there! WOW!

So will ya wish me luck for whatever happens next? Thanks!
