I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

Making Cards

I am attempting to make cards for Cards 4 Love I only have 3 cards made right now. So disappointing. I really had grand ideas from all the videos and my own ideas but then life happens and I have to put aside my wants to do what NEEDS to be done. So a new day has started and camp has ended for my oldest grandson and we are going to find paperwork so I can start a 2nd new part time job next week and get a reasonable amount of cards done with envelopes!!
I was looking around for card ideas and came across this Plane Penny Slider  I love penny slider cards and realized that I made a card using snowflakes and thought that would be great. While I am making my cards I have to think about cards that would be good for other people to put together. I will be volunteering at the Middletown Public Library in September to make cards for the same program for cards for the troops and the kids of St. Jude hospital. The first session will be for adults during the day and the second session will be for the kids in the evening. It will be fun.

Here are the cards so far.

I like side step cards. I would also like to try bendy cards as well but I am going to make some penny slider cards first and then move on to the next sets. I just have to get started. I will bring up some of the Christmas paper and put some of the summery paper packs down in the basement for storage. I am getting excited.
