The latest

Hello! Welcome back to the Sanctuary! I've been pretty busy so here is a short post on the latest. I am thoroughly enjoying my swapping experiences over at Swap-bot. Previously to joining Swap-bot I had been feeling like I was stuck in a rut and was having trouble getting out of it. Now I feel more inspired and creative than before. It's a change of pace and I like it a lot. I got my 8x8's sent out successfully and my partner liked what I sent so that was a relief! I am currently working on an altered journal swap and a couple Halloween swaps as well.

I am almost done with a 6x6 mini album that I started making a couple of weeks ago. I just need to do the cover and I will try to get some pics up of that as well.

Next Sunday is my card making party for Operation Write Home. Sadly to say I think it is just going to be my mom, my mother-in-law, and myself but at the same time it will be nice to bond with them both :)

I can't believe I managed two posts in one night! That's quite an accomplishment for me. Tomorrow I have the day off of work and I'm now sure how crafty I will be...I think I'm starting to get a little burn out. I plan on cleaning the house because while my husband was out of town last week I kind of commandeered the dining room table and the living room with crafting stuff. So after that we'll see what happens...maybe I'll just take some more pics and post...yeah that sounds like a good plan to me!

Before I end this post I want to give a quick shout out to the Swap-bot visitors that will be stopping by the Sanctuary in the coming weeks. I truly appreciate all the comments and nice things you have to say about my blog, and while I am no Martha Stewart, all the kind words really make me feel like my blog means something to someone other that just me :)
Until we meet again, Happy Scrappin'! SB

p.s. If you're neighbor living in the basement of your duplex is cooking food with curry in it, spraying Fresh Linen does NOT make the smell go away. Now my house smells like 'curry scented linen'. Random I know, but it was too funny not to mention!
