Sorry I haven’t been around the past few days. I’ve actually felt better for the most part but have been running around like a mad woman trying to get things done for our youngest daughter’s wedding reception (they were married on January 9th so we held their reception, dubbed their “Happily Ever After-party, here at our house last night.)
It was a wonderful success but I was absolutely wiped out from all the preparations, shopping, decorating, cleaning and baking. Every bit of food, including the wedding cake, was homemade by yours truly. She (Shelby) said she wanted a the dessert table with the wedding cake laid out like you’d see in a pastry shop…and I think we succeeded very nicely.
We met the grooms family (some of them pretty strange but oh well, we can’t choose our family and he DID warn us) and they met us (and are probably thinking the same thing about us, too.) Many of their friends showed up and everyone showered them with love and best wishes, not to mention gifts and cash. You have to love gifts and cash…they are both tickled to death.
Needless to say, my creativity has been used in decorating and baking and not in my studio or even my Art Journal for the past few days. Today was rest, relax and recuperate day…we all needed it! A five hour nap this afternoon implies the dire need, wouldn’t you say? lol
Come Monday I am hoping to be back to creating in the studio (I have some AWESOME ideas in my head that I can’t wait to bring into fruition!) and in my Art Journal. Lots of sharing, too, I promise.
Oh, has anyone ever had a problem receiving Stampington & Company publications? I ordered “Art Journaling” on January 28th, received a confirmation email on February 2nd that it would ship out in 2-4 days but, as of yet, nada. I check the mail with such excitement every day and every day I am disappointed. lol Anyway, if you have ordered from them, leave me a comment with details. I so want to know that this isn’t a common practice for them since they have so many cool publications.
Well, if you’ve read this far then you deserve a big gold star and a huge thanks. I hope you all had a great Valentines (mine was nice and restful) and the rest of your weekend is splendid as well.
Keep on creating!
Peace & Love,
