HELLO, baby!

Snow is starting to melt... finally! The calendar might say it is Spring, but in northern Michigan it is not too spring-like yet! But I am grateFUL for the sun!

I have felt very overwhelmed lately... I feel like I am trying to juggle so many things and I am not doing a very good job at any of them!  My hubby and I are on the go so much with half our life in Lake City and half our life in Ludington, not to mention visiting family in the Thumb (140 miles away)!  I really am not complaining... I am just searching for an answer to find some balance.  I know this will not last forever... our house will be sold! Do you ever feel like you are not living up to your potential?  I know I am doing all I can right now... I have got to let go of that perfectionism thing, again! Sorry Lord!

I said all that to say that I am trying to rejuvenate my Stampin' Up business... it has been on the back-burner and I really need to start sharing more of it again! It really is not about the money for me... it is the love of sharing my creativity God has given me... so here goes!

I am heading to the Thumb this weekend for my cousin's baby shower, so I had this idea in my head to use a doily for the bib... and of course because it is a girl I could make it all lacy and flowery with a lil' sparkle from the Dazzling Details!  I used SU Pretty in Pink and Pool Party for the color combo! I really am loving Pool Party! Glad to see it will be around for awhile!

So many exciting things going on with Stampin' Up right now! They just keep topping themselves! The new "This and That" line, the photopolymer stamps... and now this:

Better get my buns moving! Thanks for stopping! Have a fantastic weekend and don't forget to take advantage of the FREE shipping!

with a grateFUL HEART, carin
