Simple and Sweet and Some News...

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later... I'm going back to work in a few weeks. I have a wonderful lady to watch my boy, along with a couple other cutie pie kids. We were just out there again today to visit, and he absolutely loves it there. I can't believe he is 20 months old already, nearly 21 months!!! I'm so grateful that I was able to spend that many months at home with him, when I originaly thought I'd only have about 3. He has just started saying "I love you" which sounds like "oh-vee..." and calling us "honey." :-)

I am also giving up my Stampin' Up! demo-ship... it is just too much of a struggle for me to make my minimums, and when I buy stuff myself, it ends up sitting there, unused. I want to keep stamping, I just don't want the pressure of being a demo anymore. Any of you who might be former customers of mine, if you want, drop me an email, and I'll hook you up with a new demo. Thanks for your support all of these years!! Someday I may pick it back up again, but for now this is the right decision. I'm also going to purge my stamping supplies and get them down to a manageable amount. I will list the items I have for sale here soon, so if you are looking for some goodies, check back!!! I'm hoping to keep stamping when I can, and so will blog occasionally, but probably not as often as you'd like!!

I did stamp a couple of really simple cards today, one for a friend of my dh whose wife had a little boy, and one for a friend of mine who is due soon with a little girl. I used an old Wordsworth clear set that is getting old and brittle, but still worked for these sweet cards!!!

I know it's cliche, but wow he's getting big :-)

It's hard trying to balance and prioritize things that are all important to you. It sounds like you're making the best choice for you and the family right now.

Hugs to all of you!
