Since the start of the new year, my family has gotten a lot of things done, we started in the basement just getting rid of things, and cleaning things out, and while it still has a ways to go, it has begun to look more spacious, and now we have started on the garage, years ago when I was still in the single digits, we could easily fit 2 cars, but it soon became a storage area, and the cars remained outside, no matter the weather. Now I'm excited to say we can now fit 1 car and pushing to get the other in before next winter, It's lookin' good!
Now I'm in the process of remodeling my small artspace/ bedroom, I finally purchased some shelving off Amazon that has sat in my cart for nearly 3 years, Yikes! I know right? I just didn't have the gumption to get a move on things, I'd share pictures, but in my excitement I have already rotated and moved furniture so I have no "before" pictures, but will definitely share when I have everything situated.
Honestly, I'm not sure there was a time when I was not busy so far this year, if I wasn't at home taking care of the chores and housework, I was off babysitting, or working my Substitute teaching job, or taking care of my 3 boys I nanny part time, which I think has to be my favorite job, and a blessing to both me and the parents, I won't deny some days those boys can be hard to handle but through it all I gain experience, and when talking about them in public I refer to them as my Boys.
They Also make for good photography practice!

As to my Art and papercrafting, I haven't had a whole lot of time to do, and as I hope to make digital stamps of my own, I purchased an Intous drawing tablet, which puts my drawings straight to the computer.
Here is my first test drawing
My card making has really slacked, I barely got this card done in time for Mothers Day, but I made it! phew!!
