In Review...

Did you have a lovely Easter?  We had a nice, albiet busy weekend.  We visited with my inlaws and ate waaaay too much delicious food.

I don't know about you - but I'm utterly bewildered at how it came to be April 6 already.  It's one of those times of the year where everything seems to be going in fast forward - it's a bit of a hectic dash to the finish line and I'm having a hard time keeping up!

The weather here in Michigan is sunny one day, cold the next, thunder-storming the day after that... we have holidays and birthdays and parties to plan and concerts to go to and trips to embark on in the next couple of months... coupled with a house in need of a good spring clean, yard-work waiting to be done, and a pile of laundry that's frankly too embarrassing to talk about.

I'm just craving for some creative time and am hoping to squeeze in a little stamping today.  You see, I'm working on cranking out my FINAL paper and presentation of the semester which I'll present tomorrow evening, and then I will enjoy a FIVE WEEK break from school.  Aaahh... so close yet so far away!

I assure you that after Wednesday my days will be filled with equal parts napping and crafting, with a little housework thrown in for good measure.  I can't wait!

While we wait for me to catch up, I thought we'd do a little Ready, Set, Craft! recap of the month of March.  Enjoy!

Great picture of you guys at Easter--looks like you had a great one! I love how everyone has an Easter basket!
Love the recap too! It's so nice because it shows all the recent projects--makes me feel like I'm reading a magazine!
And, yes--where did the time go?

I know, we're almost a quarter of the way through the year... what?! :) I'm still loving that delicious looking chocolate cupcake. I drooled the first time I saw it on your blog and am now drooling again ;)

You were very productive! And working on your Master's, too. I'm sure you feel like time is flying. I hope you can catch a breath and have some creative time.

Good luck on your presentation!!! ahhh...five whole weeks of no school, sounds like a vacation to me. I homeschool my four kids, so I never get a break from school. :)
