Wow! An entire week since my last post?!

Where does the time go? I have not been in my craft room much at all. Last Thursday I chaperoned the kindergarten field trip to a strawberry farm in Bluemont, VA. I asked Kathryn if she wanted to go on the trip and she responded,"No, thank you, Mommy." You may recall this is the same farm where she fell in the pumkin patch and we rode the ambulance back to the old hospital in Leesburg where Kathryn received 7 stitches above her left eye.
I said,"What if I go with you?" Kathryn said, "O.K."
We had a GREAT time! After learning about strawberries and riding the tractor pull out to the strawberry field, the children played on the moon bounce, the slides, the swings, and a picnic lunch. Hey, this is no ordinary farm! The weather was gorgeous. Friday I had my hair done. Monday was my day to run the parent table in kindergarten, and today I went to get our car serviced. We are going out of town this weekend. Every couple of months for the past 15 years we go to Richmond, VA for cousins weekend. My husband has the most wonderful cousins! Those boys are all wonderful. They are more like a big group of brothers. (Okay, well some of them ARE brothers; but my husband has no brothers, so they are like brothers to him.) The past 7 or 8 years, it has been more like 1-2 times per year, rather than every couple of months. You know how it is with every cousin having 2-4 children. It is difficult to get together around all the kids' (the second cousins)various schedules. It is always so much fun. I can't wait!

About these cards I posted...do you recall when I was counting the 45 days until my Cosmo Cricket QVC deal arrived? Well it ended up being LESS than 2 weeks! Yep, it showed up on my doorstep 2 days BEFORE Valentine's Day :) I opened it up on Valentine's Day, but I did not use any of the materials until last week. I made these four cards. I did not design them! They were a display picture in the brochure, and I CASEd them.

I need to get back to Mother's Day cards. They are selling as fast as I can make them. We will be gone all weekend, so I'd better get to work!
