Good Manners? and a Little Break













I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a bit.  I’ve gotten several e-mails asking where I have been hiding.  I woke up to a very sick boy on Friday and am trying to keep his lungs clear so that he does not end up in the hospital again this winter.  The pediatrician says that his bronchitis could quickly turn into pneumoia if we don’t keep up on the breating treatments.  In there I threw in a class, a 15 year high school reunion and a trip to look at some custom built cabinets that are destined for the trash.  It’s been a long weekend to say the least. 

I also wanted to thank all of you who visit here on a daily basis.  It is a very difficult decision to make, but right now I must take a break from some of my stamping related activities and spend a little more time with my family.  I really have enjoyed teaching those of you who come to my classes new things, and posting here on a daily basis.  I just need to step back and take things easy for a while.  I’m sure that you will all understand. 

Here is a page I made of Evan.  He does not like to have his hands dirty, yet uses them to shovel food into his mouth and then holds his hands out for us to clean.  The layout for this page was again taken from the November 2008 issue of  Creating Keepsakes Magazine. 

I hope to be back soon.  Until then have fun stamping!
