Summertime fun!

Well I did it again. I am just going to plead the summer as my excuse for not blogging everyday or at the very least every other day. Last week was my birthday so I have been celebrating that, went down south (to Seattle) to do some school clothes shopping, then again down to do some "me" clothes shopping (that was fun, I could actually look at things without having to wonder where the 4 year old wondered off to this time :)

It has not been very productive time for me but then again I guess the summer is the best time to get outside and celebrate life with the kids and family and that essentially is what I have been doing.

Going forward for the rest of the month we are swamped with activities. My sisters house warming and birthday are next Sat and Sunday respectively, then the kids are going to a campout the following Friday (without parents so we get a date night, yippee!!!) The next night is my nieces (and her fiance of course) engagement party so hopefully the whole gang (Rorys family) can get along for one night to celebrate the first grandchilds engagement, very long story but since last Christmas his family have been feuding, I guess with 7 siblings it's bound to happen from time to time but this is the longest it has ever lasted. A couple days later it is our anniversary, then the long weekend and then............the world can return to a normal schedule, kids will be back in school, the nights get dark earlier, bedtimes are followed (for the kids not me, lol) and I can work on my projects.

I have started working on one of my fall projects already though and those are the commerical (meaning not handmade by me) Christmas cards I sell on ebay. I have listed about 10 so far but once done there should be about 400 card designs to choose from. Beautiful designs, funny, cute, name it I think I would have it and with most falling into a price range of between $5.50 and $8.75 for 18 well made cards with lined envelopes I don't think you could beat it. That is unless you want handmade in which case jump from my ebay store to my Etsy shop where you will find handmade cards and coming soon, gift tags!

Here are a few of the cards I have or will be listing soon! All of my cards can be found in my ebay store, link is on the right :)

So with this few weeks ahead I won't promise anything like I have in the past, but I will hope to get my blogging done much more consistently.

Well you certainly are having a busy time at the moment, no doubt it must be difficult to keep up with your blog as well. I love your Xmas card they are simple but really classic. Well done with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxxx
