Hi friends! I hope you are having a good weekend. I mentioned earlier today on Facebook that my craft room had hit critical mass. I had several orders for upcoming workshops and framing jobs arrive this week and lots of things to finish up and package for the Made in Maine Expo I am getting ready for May 2nd and it was all just there congesting my basement! So I tackled it this morning! I organized and sorted things, checked framing orders and unboxed goodies. I put away the Jenga pile of supplies that towered precariously at the end of my table that built up over the past 2 weeks and rewarded myself (and my family) by ordering pizza for dinner! I’d love to say my table was still cleaned off but I can’t be sure, my daughters saw my new chalk marker test paper and they had to use them so I might be out of black cardstock and chalk markers now and there might be a new pile of art on my table but I’m not going to worry about that. Besides, a well used art room can’t be clean all the time 🙂 I did take some breaks to enjoy this beautiful warm sunny spring day. We played catch with the kids and we all enjoyed the weather. I took some time earlier this week to scrapbook some photos from Easter, it is my favorite holiday to scrap because of the beautiful spring colors which are welcome after a long winter.
I love the pastel colors! This year instead of snapping pics of my kids hunting for eggs (in the snow…) I got a few shots of our kids and my nephew at my parent’s house. I usually forget to take pictures but I used all the photos I took on this two page layout. I have a few time saving techniques I like to use to create quick layouts. Today I will share them in this video:
