Thank you

This year at TaeKwonDo camp
my 13-yo son was invited to be a Junior Counslor,
he even got a letter from The Masters.
Today we picked him up from camp
(everything from doing dishes by hand to serving food to
drying tears to holding boards for breaking not to mention
teaching patterns and sparring)
What an AMAZING experience for him!
He talked non-stop for about half the trip home
(takes just over 90 minutes)
then suddenly there was silence
he'd fallen asleep

Can't brain anymore today

I NEED the dumb
ok so I know that isn't how that really goes
but last night I had just worked too many hours this week
and I needed to shut my "thinking" brain off
and use my crafty brain

As I was posting to Unity Stamp Co's Monthly color combo challenge
I noticed the Card Sketch

oh I feel SO much better now!

He does TaeKwon-Do, I Craft

earlier this month, my younger son had a TaeKwon-Do  Instructor Training program in Little Rock, Ar (about a 3 hour drive from home)
so I took him down there and, of course, I HAD to take something to do
stamps, ink, chipboard... 
well, here's a picture of some of it!
yes, so much deliciousness does it in a suitcase,
along with a few more things like paper, Copics,
and my Tim Holtz ink pad collection!
Clothes are overrated

and now, for my creations
I made this one with Unity Stamp Co's monthly color combo in mind

and this one, super simple, but I love it

last but not least....
this little one had to get packed away still wet!
yes, I was nervous when I opened my suitcase at home

don't ever lose it!

I completely agree with this sentiment! 
 I find myself at time gazing at wild road-size daisies thinking.... wow, those are so very pretty
and they're what?  weeds!
I also love sunrises, from my bedroom window,
just standing there feeling the wonder of God

I made this one for Mountain Plains Crafters as one of the Design Team Members, just because
but also since it's Friday for Unity's Friends with Flair

Father's Day.... yup

it's coming, soon
we don't really do a whole lot for my hubby
but normally I will try to fix him breakfast in bed
that's really about it

Quick FWF

ok so super quick
a super quick birthday card for my younger son's girlfriend..
She's an older "woman", turning 14 today while he just turned 13 in March
ooooo ahhhh
I'd say "you go girlfriend" but that's my Baby we're talkin' about
so, of course, I had to make sure her mama would be there for the party today!
She was :-)
