Packing for the summer!

The movers will be here Wednesday. All of our stuff is going into storage, as we will be spending the summer living in hotels (and visiting family) until we can find and close on our first house! I have been busy preparing projects to keep me busy for the next few months... trying to get everything pre-cut and pre-stamped so I don't have to take a ton of stuff with me. I'll be finishing up Christmas Cards, trying some new sketches, and coloring a ton of images with my Copics that I can make into cards once we get settled.

The new catalogue from The Angel Company should be out sometime the end of June, so I'm getting excited about that. Last September, when I went to see Beth Moore, I felt really convicted that I needed to be using my cards to encourage others. I found it very interesting that Mischelle Smith, the founder of TAC, has also spoken of moving the company in that direction. As such, I can't wait to see the new sets. The "Final Farewell" list is extensive and they are all on sale. You can see them HERE if you're in the market for some real bargains.

And, just to pique your curiosity, I'll have a surprise to post on Monday!

I made a card!

... for the first time in months! I've been crazy busy with all that an upcoming move entails. As excited as I am to get back to the east coast, this is going to be the hardest move so far. I'm leaving behind some wonderful friends who I will miss dearly. Several of them belong to my bookclub, so when I saw this set from My Favorite Things, I knew I had to have it! The paper was actually a steal from the new "Tuesday Morning" store that opened here... $1.99 for a pack of 25 and it's double-sided!

I do have a lot of projects to take with me to a 10-hour crafting day I'm going to tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have more to show you soon, including the monogrammed teacher gift sets that I'm making with the $1 Just Right set I found at the first yard sale of the season! :-)
