Sorry it's been so long!

Wow! It looks like it's been about a year since I last posted on my blog. I knew from the beginning that it would be difficult for me to remember to keep up with this! I'm turning over a new leaf though....and am going to try to be better :)
For right now I'm working on the final details to head out to my Cropping for a Cure 2010 weekend retreat in Flatwoods, WV next weekend! I'm really excited and looking forward to a GREAT time. We always have a great group of ladies join us.
I've already gotten the dates booked for a couple of our 2011 weekend retreats and am working on adding some more. I'll also be adding some 12 hour crops. I really enjoy the weekend retreats but I certainly miss those 12 hours one that we started with.
I've updated my Heavenly Scrapbooking Retreats website: with some more of the details for this coming weekend retreat. I've added some pics of a couple of classes that will be offered and some info about our vendors. As I finish up some of the projects I'm working on for the retreat, I'll take pics (ofcourse) and be sure to add them but I won't do it until after the retreat - don't want to spoil any surprises for the attendees :)

Little 2x3 1/2 " cards :)

I was in a swap where we were to make these cute little business card (2x3.5") sized cards. There are the 3 different ones that I made. These were a lot of fun and make a cute sized card!

Or spend some time at the nearby Flatwoods Factory outlet centers.
As always, we will offer plenty of cropping space with only 2 people per table. Cropping space will be assigned and we will place groups of people close to each other as requested on their registration forms. Cropping will be available around the clock (for you late nighters!) with the doors being locked when the last person leaves so you don’t have to worry about your valuable scrapping supplies inside while you sleep and rest up for the next day! Each person will receive a goody bag upon arrival and we will be doing LOTS of door prize drawings through out the weekend. In order to keep your energy up as you crop, we’ll be providing 2 continental breakfasts, 3 yummy snack breaks and a scrumptious dinner on Saturday evening.

Shew - May must have been a busy month

Well, I notice that I haven't posted anything since mid April! Wow! Seems like I've been awfully busy to not have anything to show for it. Actually, I have done a couple of small projects but haven't had the chance to take pics of them to post!
So, I thought that I'd update you with this pic that I just downloaded from my camera of my Aidy baby :) I cannot believe that baby will be THREE this summer - how time flies. Here is a pic that I took of him when we were watching big brother Ian play his soccer game last saturday. I just love this for some reason......wild hair and all :)

Ribbon, ribbon, I love ribbon! lol

Well, a week or so ago, I coordinated a ribbon swap! I guess it's more of a ribbon buy in than a swap but bottom line is we all get LOTS of ribbon when it's done. The shipment came yesterday and now the cutting begins! lol
I haven't done much in the way of creating lately, so no posts since my dh bday card, so thought I'd post a pic of our ribbon spools! lol They're pretty too :)

Happy Birthday Mark!

Friday was my hubby's birthday and this is a little card that I made him!

6x6 layouts

This was the last round of the CTMH consultant swap that I've been making these items for.I've recently developed a fondness for this paper pack and thought it would make nice 6x6 layouts!
