Happy Wednesday to you all! Do you need a hug? Boy I have needed one this week, lol, so much to get done that I am a bit flustered and out of it. Think I’ve had a virus as well cuz’ I cannot for the life of me shake the dizziness and nausea along with just being plain ole’ tired, ugh! Get outta here already please! But there is stuff to be done so no rest for us the weary LOL! Wow, have you seen the devastation from Hurricane Irene. Yeah it might’ve been only a Category 1 storm but it sure did dump a lot of rain and do damage up and down the East Coast. I am saddened that Vermont has seen so much flooding, whole roads are gone and 100+ year old bridges have washed away. There are still thousands without power everywhere so I’m hoping that they get that restored soon as we all know its not a lot of fun to deal with no electricity. So stop and say a prayer today for those still being impacted by this storm or send a kind word to someone you know that is suffering, it is always appreciated.
School has started here in Northern Virginia—did you hear me squealing with delight yesterday LOL? Sorry but I’m one of those mom’s that craves normal routines and the quietness of the house without children…err…teens running through it all hours of the day. I can get sooooooo much more done when they are at school LOL and hey I just like the peace & quiet too. Trust me, my house makes up for it after school and sports practices let out. Smelly, hungry, hyper teens everywhere---ackkkkk LOL! I love ‘em but I love ‘em even more in school but that also means that summer is over (boo hoo) which saddens me. I always can tell that the kids are ready to go back to school in August because they start bickering (well more than usual anyhow) and getting antsy—ready to see their friends and do something with their days that is productive hee hee. And just a quick love letter by a mom that is frustrated to Target & Staples—STORES RESTOCK THE STINKIN’ SCHOOL SUPPLIES QUICKLY, our schools don’t give out the supply lists until the first day of school and by then everything is sold out and shelves bare. Ackk I’m sick of it!!! Don’t you know I need like 10 5-subject notebooks, 7 2” binders and highlighters—what is wrong with you Staples and Target. For Real? Get it together, we need school supplies all year so start ordering and stocking. Love—a frustrated mom of teens in Virginia!!
Yes I do--Yes I do need a Cherry Coke--maybe 5 today perhaps will make me feel better LOL!
Only a short post from me today as I’m just not feeling 110% of my energizer self today—darn I must need my batteries recharged LOL! But I am diligently working on the newest issue of the magazine and preparing for fall classes, design team deadlies and releases. So I’ll see you back here tomorrow ‘kay!?

I adore this sweet image by Stampavie-Gillian F Roberts called “Being Together”—even without a sentiment it sends a sweet message. I’ll be there for you, I love you, I’m here to support you—gotta love an image like that! Usually I have more pics but for some reason quite a few were blurry and its too late to retake them, sorry ‘bout that!
My sketch is from Sweet Sunday Sketch and I took the liberty to move some of the elements around just a tad, sorry! LOL! My papers are new by MME “Honey Cake”—love the colors! A few swirls with my Marianne Designs dies, a bow and some Primas decorate it nicely. The pearls were made with my Viva Décor Pearl Pen in Ice White and sentiment is from PTI.
