An Apology and an Update :)

First off I want to apologize for not posting a project in so long. We have been so busy here since school got out 2 weeks ago.
On the last of school two of our foster kids (our 9-year-old daughter and our 6-year-old son) were able to return home to live with their Mother. We are very happy and excited for them but also miss them tons. It has taken us a while to get adjusted to having them gone and have been busy reorganizing the house now that we have more space. With having more space has come me having my own craft room!! First, I was in the kitchen at the table with as much of my stuff that would fit in the pantry but having to clean up for every meal time got very old. So I moved upstairs in to the baby's room which has been fine and was a total upgrade from the kitchen, but again I still couldn't get all my scrap stuff out since I needed to work around the baby's stuff and his schedule. Now I have been able to move the baby out and have the space all to myself!! But I want it to be totally girly so I have been packing everything up so I can paint it and get my new craft furniture all put together and everything organized. (I'm still in the packing phase.)

We also had the most wonderful thing happen to our family. On June 2, 2011, we were able to adopt our third foster child, our baby boy Lucas!! He is now 9-months-old and absolutely amazing!! We feel so happy and blessed!!!

Now that all the excitement and change is starting to die down I will be able to get back into the groove of crafting and posting projects. Although since it is summer it probably won't be as much as I want since all the kids are home and we tend to do tons of camping and playing at the lake during the summer. But I will do my best. :)

Here is a picture of our beautiful Lucas after his adoption.

Have a great day!!!
