That is what I have in store for the Labor Day weekend....starting tonight! The main PROJECT is tiling the backsplash by my kitchen sink. I only started it in 2002! I can't simply tile I have to paint and bake the tile before installing the tile. The reason it went on hold was I found out I was pregnant and didn't trust the paint fumes. Well baby is 4 1/2 years old! So I need to finish this project! Hubby will be happy to see it completed!
IDEAS come in the form of Scrap layouts and art designs. Also tags, we are having a tag swap at Paper Popsicles. There is 10 ladies participating, it's going to be SOOO much fun!
The RESEARCH is about starting our own business. Hubby likes the sound of that "our". I have been looking into business license, product developement, funding.....ugh!
As for these layouts they are from Paper Popsicles supplies! Actually Augusts' kit which is no longer available! Sorry, but take a peek at Septembers and Octobers kits! If your interested get them early....they have been going FAST! I haven't been disappointed with anything from Paper Popsicles!
The "future gardener?" is my son being curious. He would take the fake fruit and veggies in and out of the basket! "In Line" is a photo of my son's master work of lining things up. He took his favorite book "Bear snores on" and put his bears in a line over the top of the book. It was too cute and had to get a photo of it! I still smile thinking of him hunting for stuffed bears to put together!
Well that is about what my Labor Day is going to be about, hope yours is enjoyable! Until next week, keep busy!

This is one of the latest I've done. I love taking photos of my son sleeping, he doesn't do it enough! This is also the last of my Piggy Tales "Frog Prince" papers, did I mention how much I love these! Well tonight is the last night for the DT call at Piggy Tales....Yes I submitted and yes I'm a nervous wreck. Probably why I've been scrappin so much! They don't call the new DT until Aug. 29 and they are not posting the winners on their site until Sept.1 so talk about more time to be nervous! I also submitted to October Afternoon. I found it on pub calls and I believe it's a new site. They have more than just stamps. They have beautiful country paper and tags also some wonderful rubons! And since I also submitted to them, just something else to worry about! What I really need to do is start submitting my artwork to manufacturers. How cool would that be scrappin with my own products that I designed! But like alot of artists the fear of the unknown and the chance of being regected holds us back. Looking at these words I just wrote and thinking, how foolish! I could be doing something I love and sharing my ideas with the scrap-world. Not to mention helping the family financially and still be here for my boy! Well, I guess I had more to post than I thought! Enjoy the weekend coming up! Play alot and laugh more!!! I have some drawings to work on and submit!
