I started to make a card on Monday morning, but it's mostly been sitting on my desk, looked at longingly each time I've passed. DH's care has taken most of my time, which is exactly how it should be. He's improving day by day. Still using a walker, but I'm hoping that in a week or two, he'll be back to more normal...except for stairs. Not doing THAT again!!! So while he's in the recliner with the remote in hand, and paperwork surrounding him, I've been making a switch. His bigger than huge office now needs to be compacted, and moved into his bedroom. So guess what I've been doing???? Yep. Packing up, hauling down, moving out stuff, handing him boxes upon boxes of papers to go through (keep, recycle, shred...), and working my little brain to the bone trying to figure out how to fit all this in half the space. Some things will stay in boxes and in the attic. Some things will come down, and some things will go up. Hundreds of books will go either to local libraries, or into AAUW book sales. But don't worry...I'm an expert at getting 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag! It will all work out. Next year we're planning a reno of the first floor; turning our current family room into his bedroom, turning the adjoining room which is a pass-through room to the family room and my craft room, into a closet and full bathroom with a walk in shower, and then his current bedroom into office space only. I'll take over some of the space in his old office as my craft space, so that will work out well.
ANYWAY...all this by way of an explanation of why I have been a bit out of touch. I do have a card to share today, and it's in honor of another Bev! Bev over at Uniko Studios just had twin boys! How nice is that??!! DH and I have twin boys, but they're just a wee bit older than these two...by, um, oh...40+ years! Tom and Joe are a real blessing in our lives, and if Bev and her husband have even half the joy we've had, then, they will be truly blessed. So congrats on Josh and Ben! Time Out Challenge has an additional challenge on this auspicious occasion, "Double the Joy." Had a little ping, and all I needed was for DH to sleep in a bit so I could finish the card. Mission accomplished!!
One boat for each little boy. Lots of different products here. SU boat stamps all fussy cut, SC star sequins, NN sentiment, multiple inks, and a NBUS LF die to make the waves. All the papers are scraps except for the Neenah base. And since I've taken up waaaaay too much of your time already, I'll quit now. Happy dances everyone.
