wish-i washi

I spend altogether too much time on Instagram.  Probably, if I could tear myself away from all the inspiration over there, I would have a whole chunk of time to create some stuff.  

Sometimes it's just easier to look at what everyone else is creating.

When Sherri Funk's washi tape layout appeared in my feed, I dusted off the ol' scrapbooking supplies and created this:

So fun to be inspired to create, and even more fun to have something to show for it!

The challenge comes from Chic Tags.  They post a new challenge every Sunday.  Check them out!

hello, my little blog

March 15th?  
Is that seriously the last time I've posted here?

Well, let's catch up.  
I went back to teaching after about 14 years.

I love it, but it was a bit of an adjustment.
Planning, reading, relearning, creating and organizing new materials, early mornings, no more sweats.

But hardest of all, is my lack of time to be creative.

Some days all I can muster is a quick stroll through Pinterest

Or a few stitches of crochet:

Throw into the mix our crazy over-lapping winter and spring sport's seasons:

But that hasn't stopped me from picking up a few supplies:

And trying to keep up with project life (post coming soon, I hope!)

Thank goodness for Instagram, for letting me quickly and easily document our lives through pictures (and have a little visual content to be able to include in this blog post).

I can't make any promises, but I hope it's not another 2 1/2 months before I can stop by here again!
