Busy Bees this Spring!

I just wanted to let all of you know that I'm still here. It's been spring through and through the last few weeks here; and along with helping out Stacy Julian as a Trainer in her Library of Memories online class, I've been busy being a mom (soccer, carpooling, field trips, fun days, etc) and enjoying the weather. My kids and I have been outside A LOT and it's so nice to have a backyard where we get these beautiful breezes to hear the birds singing and the trees rustling.

I've stepped away from the computer for the past month or so (even forgot to pull out my camera on March 12 for the 12 on the 12th edition) but I plan on getting back in the swing of things soon. We do still have Spring Break with the kids' schools this next week after Easter, so it'll still be just a bit longer before I return in full swing.

I will be taking Picture Spring (a class taught by Tracey Clark of Shutter Sisters) at Big Picture Scrapbooking starting April 1st. I'm really looking forward to focusing on photography again soon. It's a great deal for daily prompts to inspire some creative photography and I hope to share my results here with you all! Let me know if you plan on signing up too and I'll look for you in class.

Hugs to you all!!

Been a while, hasn't it?

I've missed you all. My time these days has been split between helping coach the Library of Memories class, updating my own Library of Memories system, scrapbooking, homework with children, and escorting them to soccer practice and physical therapy.

Today was the first soccer game of the season for Matthew and Lance, and guess what? I left my camera at home . . . on purpose! It was fun not being "THE" camera mom and just cheering on the boys (and girls) on the team. Lance was completely his usual self; but Matthew was pretty awesome. Coach wanted him as goalie, but he really wanted to be where he could kick the ball; and kick he did. He was a defensive player first, and he was powering kicks to the other end of the field; and then he scored his team's only two goals. They were going up a very good and experienced (meaning older range of the age group) team but they still did a stellar job.

I hope to have some new layouts to share very soon. I'm also taking May Flaum's Go Hybrid class (trying to marry my love of paper with the speed of doing some things digitally) and getting ready to take Tami's Everyday Adventures class. I can not wait for this! Tami is not only a pretty fun scrapbooker, but she's also a co-trainer in Library of Memories with me. She has an amazing way of always being full of life and adventure! :-) I've linked it and if it sounds intriguing, feel free to check it out! :-) If you decide to sign up, let me know so I can wave to you in class!
