What I've been working on lately

So - I've been a bad blogger lately - but I have a good excuse! I was so incredibly sick last week - and still am. God - I am sick of coughing! How much water can I drink??? But I am much better, thankfully, and on antibiotics so I can't infect anyone else - which is a blessing.

Here's some pics of a book I've been working on. It's not done yet but going to be filled with pics of my daughter and her friends - dressing up. It's something they do every day without fail and it amuses me. I have many pictures of them in funny shoes, tiaras and masks and they don't seem to mind me snapping away. So I probably have enough to fill two books. But first I have to finish this one. I've also done a few layouts, more cards and a tag book - but I thought these were more colorful. Tomorrow Lisa and I head up north to deliver more of our wares - I am excited to get it out of my dining room and see if it sells. Wish us luck! :)

Chica Night

Okay - I really should be in bed, but I had such a fun time tonight that I just had to share with my blogging friends! All of us chicas got together for a card-making session. I really couldn't believe all we produced! Here's mine and what all of us did is below.

I think we got an awful lot done and they are all so pretty! We also did a Valentine swap. All of us love getting gifts and seems like each month now we're exchanging things with each other! I love it! Here's what I got from my buddy Deb L I F E. Isn't she talented? She's now selling to boutiques and also gave me some of her awesome letters to alter for an upcoming swap. I love my stuff, Deb! Thank you! :)

Julia came again tonight too Julia and totally surprised us all with so many goodies! She spoils us. She invited us to do a card swap and here's the best part - offered me a spot on her DESIGN TEAM! I was so thrilled and excited! My first design team and for a company whose products I really enjoy using - Close to My Heart. Thank you Julia for this opportunity! I can't wait to use the products you gave me. All of us enjoy having you with us now as a Chica!

Thank you so much for hosting, Carole! I had a blast with everyone! (Lisa -- Carole's sister - are you reading this???) HA!
