Wow, way too long!

I have been absent from both the scrapping and blogging worlds for far too long.  I've missed scrapping so much but life has been so overwhelming.  We have moved into our new house and done lots of work with it.  We are finally done with the flooring and the painting and the baseboards are in too.  We've been busy unpacking all our things - our shipment from Jamaica and the things we had stored at both my parents' place and DH's parents' place.  Trying to find places for everything and making it all come together has been lots of work but lots of fun too.

I've also gone back to teaching after five years staying at home with our kiddos.  It's been tough but I'm very thankful that I have a great homeroom class so it's made the transition much easier.  I still wish I could stay home and be a homemaker but it's not in the cards.  I've also started selling ViSalus nutrition products. I've been taking them and I feel so much better, just healthier, and I want to share that with others.  I included a link in case you're interested.  :)

Tonight, I was so darn tired from life in general so I decided that I needed to do some scrapping.  I wasn't sure how it would go since I've had no creativity flowing through these veins in months, only practicality.  lol  But a good friend of mine has been patiently waiting on me to get a baby announcement done for her.  Her sweet baby boy was born in August so I decided that this was the project for me.  And I'm happy to say that I finished it and it turned out great!  Unfortunately, I can't share it with you.  But I'm hoping that this is the start to my return to the scrappy world.  I miss you all so much and I hope to get back into the swing of things soon!
