It's been a little while
and I hate that is so long between blog posts.
But I am struggling.
I once again have this block
that comes and wipes out any creative energy I may have.
I have tried numerous times
putting photos to paper,
and absolutely nothing happens.
May is a notoriously busy month for me,
5 family birthdays (including my husband's 50th!),
trying to get back in the groove of working again,
leaving for a school trip with #2 for Boston next week
as a chaperone for Megan and 3 friends
(Do they know who I am? I am the one in need of a chaperone. lol),
and a fun trip to New Jersey for Scrapbook Expo this Friday!
Any blog readers going to be there?
I know I will be dropping major coinage
and I am hoping some new product is just what I need
to get me back in the game.
My computer issues have finally been resolved.
I did lose almost 2,000 photos
(1,500 of my two youngest's middle school play of "Seussical",
but more importantly, just the everyday shots that I took
of my dog, of my whole family on Easter, etc...)
but luckily, I had uploaded some of my favorite Easter shots
to Facebook before they were lost,
so I didn't go into a full depression.
Here is one of the girls in the Easter finery,
I remember when they used to be in Easter bonnets
and matching outfits.
Now in no time #3 will be as tall as her sisters:
Rememer the great V-Day post where Erin met her teen crush,
Kendall from Big Time Rush?
She asked permission if she could have a Twitter account
because he has one, so I let her.
(I monitor everything she writes and sees)
She tweeted him about the Vans and hat she received on Easter,
(He wears Vans all the time,
and when he met her wore the same newsboy cap)
and I took a photo of her wearing them
and he tweeted back to her.
Now that is pretty amazing because
he has over 100,000 followers
but he managed to see hers.
Again, she was on top of the world because of him :)
This was the photo:
Mother's Day was lovely,
I celebrated with my family,
my parents and my sister and her family.
I took a crazy amount of photos and here is my favorite,
it is of my nephew, the furry one:
And here are my favorites of the girls:
#1, fresh off of getting her braces removed:
#2, still smirking because of her braces:
And lastly #3, about to get braces any day now,
hence her sweet, little closed-mouth pose:
That's all folks.
Hope you are all well
and I hope to be back soon with something scrappy!
