Back in the saddle again

Ahh, it’s good to be playing with paper again!  While I’m still on the mend and my energy level is fairly low, I finally feel like I’m approaching normal.    We’ve actually gone on outings this week–corn maze on Sunday, Bunco on Monday, and I made cupcakes for my husband’s birthday.    That’s more energy than I’ve had in the last 5 weeks combined.    Woo Hoo!    Now if I can just keep the kids from bringing home crud from school we’ll be in good shape.

As an added bonus, and a great motivator, I was asked to do some last minute projects.    It was exactly the kick in the pants I needed to get back into the scrapcave.   It’s been slow, but I’m able to craft.   I’ve missed it.    I can’t share the projects yet, but I’ll let you know when I’m able.

I caught a peek of the new issue of Crafts ‘n Things magazine today in the Hobby Lobby register line.   Of course I couldn’t resist looking!   I have 3 projects in this issue, including this candle set.

It’s a great issue, check it out for some great holiday ideas, as well as the instructions for these candles.

Hope you have a great day, and a crafty weekend!

Until next time…

    Those are lovely, Carla. I’m happy you are feeling better and starting to play again. Take it easy, and the energy will come in time.
