Happy Monday!

Happy Monday.  All you Moms who had kids starting school this morning I hope that went well.  I have no children so I don't have to go through that anxiety and planning. 

Next weekend is the last of my three day weekends.  They will be missed.  We have been working four-day work weeks over the summer and I haven't worked on a Friday since the beginning of last summer as we have been having furloughs due to state budget cuts in California.  Though I am happy to have the 10% added back to my paycheck, I will be VERY SAD to see my Fridays off go away.  Fridays have been my lazy sort of day since I knew I still had 2 more days to get chores and errands done. 

I did some crafting this weekend.  I make a beach themed mini album for my brother and his family.  They came to California in the Spring and visited the beach a few times and then also did some beach time in Washington over the summer.  I will post photos or a video of this later.

I also participated in the Scrapbeach Anniversary virtual crop on Ustream on Saturday.  I caught some of the afternoon session and tuned in for all of the evening session.

Have a great week.
Happy Crafting

Back to Reality!

I am back at work today after a two week "staycation."  Just did some crafting and some things around the house.  Me and my Mom took a trip to Santa Barbara one day to see my grandfather.  Spent a lot of time at the dog park with Lucy (our 2 year old Beagle).  We have had a extremely mild summer here in Bakersfield and she and I have taken advantage of it and have been spending lots of time at the dog park so she can run and lose some excess weight and I can walk and lose some excess weight.

Things will be busy for the next couple of months.  I work for a University and we are gearing up for our Fall term to begin in September. Of course I will be fitting in some time to craft.  This is my escape and I love it. 

I will be participating in the Scrapbeach virtual crop on August 21st. This is the one-year anniversary of the Scrapbeach and I feel like I have been a part of it forever. If you aren't familiar with you can find it at: or click on the badge on the right side of the screen.

Have a great week.

Happy Crafting,
