Finally a bit of creativity, some backstory and some news.

I have been struggling with my creativity the last few weeks. No wonder with all I have had going on. What have I been up to? Well...
    I am heavily involved with a local booster club and with practice for fall sports in full swing I have had lots of responsibilities. I organized a dunk tank at our local block party. I was in charge of a fundraiser to kick off the season. I have been working with parents new to our sport to help their families feel like they know what is going on. (Putting your child in a new sport you know nothing about can be daunting especially with a combined MS and HS team)
     I was able to fit in a girls weekend about 3 weeks ago and I was so glad I did! It was time much needed with a dear friend!
     Next week I am having my daughters team over for a "feed" You would not believe how much bread and pasta 30 girls can eat!
     Last but not least I have been helping my out of state mom get things in order to move here to my town! Yayyyy!!! It has been an emotional roller coaster that I really can not begin to describe unless you have lived it. My family and I are just so thankful that she will be with us!
     I have lived 1500 miles from my Mom for 17 years and 1000 miles from the rest of my family for 19 years. While I LOVE my mid west life, living far from family does have it's downside especially if you have children. While My husbands family is in our state the closest of his siblings is an hour away. Thankfully my kids have a wonderful relationship with that Aunt and Uncle (Partly because that Aunt is relocated from the west coast so she gets it. She and I are Great friends!) I wish I could say that the kids have a relationship with their grandparents that are 3 hours away but, well... they do not.
    Thankfully I have been able to handle much of the paperwork for her here otherwise thank goodness for fax machines to keep things moving. There is a TON of paperwork for subsidized housing! I got her storage unit rented and took care of setting up her electric service.  Now I am working on getting some staples and a few special gifts to make her feel welcome. If you have any ideas please let me know!

So, for the creativity part of this post... Here is a card I made from one of the colored images from my last post.
I was not sure how much I liked it but it got a "WOAH, That's cool!" from my boy (11). So I guess it is a keeper, or at least it is gift worthy. He said He wishes he would get an awesome card like this for his birthday. Can I just say I love this kid!

I hope you enjoy this card as much as my boy :)

Thanks for stopping by!
