Happy Mothers Day! I hope you enjoy your special day.

It seems I'm running behind this month (more so than usual). One of our stray cats brought her babies up to the house last week and we've been tending to them. Of course my youngest wants to keep all 4 kittens, which isn't going to happen since we already have plenty. My stepson also bought a house and we've been helping him get moved in.

I know May tends to be a busy month for a lot of us with graduations, end of school programs, and more, especially with the weather warming up. I hope you find a little time for yourself as well.

I had a wonderful time with the gals from The Scrapbook Tree at Vincennes for the National Scrapbook Day Crop. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to check out my booth and visit. It was fun to reconnect with friends from last year, as well as make new friends. I hope everyone that attended had a great time and got a lot done as well. Congratulations to Karen W. who won the drawing I had for the Distressing Kit. I have to thank Phyllis R. for helping me pack everything up and getting my truck loaded - I so do appreciate it! I'm looking forward to the ScrapPink for the Cure crop on October 10th.

Don't forget about Close To My Heart's National Scrapbooking Month promotion - Tickled Pink! A beautiful limited time only kit complete with a D size stamp set, accessories, and gorgeous papers! Of course, there's also a new Stamp of the Month for May. As always, so many possibilites for this set. I have also updated my calendar for May with classes, workshops, and open dates. I hope to be finalizing June's calendar soon.
