A little bit of everything today...

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

For someone who's been relatively healthy most of my life, having this cold for 6 weeks has been physically and emotionally draining. I've come to the realization that I do a great job of taking care of my family and a terrible job of taking care of me. It's evident in so many areas of my life. I don't take time for me anymore. So after lots of reflection, it's time to make some changes.

I'm hoping this cold stuff will find it's way back into the medicine cabinet and off my nightstand really soon!

Here's a peek at something I'm playing with for later...stamping on recycled craft Prima packaging. Gotta love that!

My take on Monday's color challenge at the Hero Arts blog
Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6X6 paper pad
Nestabilities label one die cut
Hero Arts snowflake stamps from two sets
American Crafts Thickers
Hero Arts Bling
Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch {have you seen the new punches? click here}

My husband's mom was kind enough to let us borrow her Nikon D60 for a few days on Halloween so we got some amazing photos of Lily trick or treating and I took these shots outside in our courtyard. I love how her hair has a waveyness to it. She hasn't had a first hair cut yet and it doesn't look like I am planning one anytime soon.

Wow what a difference from my Fuji finepix

I love this one! She is so cute and talking so much now. Full sentences even. Just the other evening she climbed in daddy's lap with her Magna Doodle and exclaimed "what you gonna draw?" So fun!
I can hardly believe it's November. I love this time of year, so much to reflect on and be thankful for. I am thankful for capturing these moments with my daughter. What are you thankful for today?
Thanks for stopping by today!
