I'm a Little Behind

Well, I've been feeling a little "two steps forward, one step back"-ish here lately.  It seems like ever since we've moved into our new home, everything has been in an uproar.  Not just the house (with boxes still to be unpacked and nothing hung on the walls), but soon after we moved, school started, then soccer ramped up to full speed ahead for both girls and we squeezed in going out of town twice in there!  So y'all shouldn't be surprised when I say that I made this card several days ago. 

It's from MOJO MONDAY 362 (Sept. 8th--see?).  I had great intentions of posting it THAT day, while the sketch was still current, but got distracted apparently.  I just either haven't had a good chunk of time, or have been too exhausted to even think to write anything.  blah.  blah. blah.  I'm going to try and be better, and am  hoping to finally settle into a routine here next week. 

Anyway, at the time of creation, the weather was just starting to cool off and it put me in a fallish mood.  I was also thinking of how thankful I am for the help from my family during our move.  I still have every intention of getting this to my sweet sister and her family for putting us up in her house during the week we were homeless!  With her in mind, I grabbed my WONDERFUL MARVELOUS stamp set from VERVE and combined it with the pumpkins and acorns from the TALL OAKS set, one of my all-time favorite Verve sets.  They are all colored with Copics and the middle pumpkin is popped up for extra dimension!  The tag is cut from the TAGGED RECTANGLE die and then I added a few SHINE BRIGHT SEQUINS from Verve--they are super sparkly!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I really wanted to do some sewing on this card.  So I got my sewing machine all prepared and ready to work.  I couldn't find the power cord/foot pedal.  Really?  I looked everywhere.  I CANNOT find it!  I've totally lost it in the move.  I know I'll find it, but for now...I HATE LOSING THINGS!  It makes me crazy and I tend to keep thinking about it.  I still think about a pair of tennis shoes I lost like 14 years ago!  I have no clue...Anyway, when you move, put these kind of things in your purse or tape them to your body if it's important.  I should have.

  1. Don't be too hard on yourself. Moving to a new house is a major event and your life is really bust most of the time. You'll find the power cord packed away somewhere and eventually you'll get everything unpacked.
