FBW #169 - CELEBRATE

At Flutter By Wednesday this week we are CELEBRATING! Just create a NEW card using a butterfly, fairy or angel on it with a CELEBRATION theme to play along.

Well I haven't done too much creating lately or celebrating. A few weeks ago, I got together with some friends to crop a little. I spent my time working on this card and coloring some images. The only thing left to do was put a sentiment on my flag. Figured it would make a great birthday card, so went with it.

This week we have a new member of our team - please help in welcoming Mary J to the FBW team! You can see her fabulous work on her blog. I hope you'll play along with us this week - head over to the FBW blog for all the details!

On a side note, it's getting better for me. I spent all weekend redoing by studio and purging stuff. I found a lot of stuff I forgot I had - and a lot of stuff I want to do. Especially scrapbooking...so many pictures and stories that I need to document. Right now, I decided that I'm not going to join any other companies. I need to take some time and heal. I want to create just to create. This week I started back at the Preschool and I meet my new class next week. I'm busy preparing my room, lesson plans and art projects. This year I'm also doing another class besides my 2 1/2 yr olds. It will be fun because it's the PreK room and a couple of my kiddos are from my first year of teaching. Anyway, I will get back to posting regularly and creating so just bear with me please. Thanks for stopping by!

So glad you're doing better! It'll take time, but slowly you'll be tearing up your crafting room, and making fun projects! Can't wait to see your scrapbook pages! Your card is beautiful!
