Jet-Lagged and Checking In

I'm home! Did ya miss me?

Boy, was our trip fun! If you didn't read my last post, my family and I went on an Alaskan cruise! We could not have been luckier with the weather--13 days of no rain, warm temps and lots of sunshine! It was almost like my hubby paid Mother Nature to make Alaska the most perfect place in the world so that I will want to move there some day! Whale-watching, zip-lining, climbing (not me), hiking, tram-riding, SHOPPING, dancing, and EATING are just a few of the things we had a blast doing. I did get a bit of knitting in--some on the ship, but mostly during our travels to and from the cruise. Of course, I managed to find almost all the yarn shops at every port we docked at! LOL Thanks for being so patient, family!
After being away for 2 weeks, I'm climbing a mountain of laundry and catching up with stuff around the house. But I wanted to check in and let you know I'm still alive! I haven't done any stampin' in the last couple weeks, so I don't have anything "new" to show you. However, I do have a project from about a month ago that I hadn't posted yet. It's an end-of-the-year teacher gift (an altered notebook, pen & gift card set).

Even though our big summer vacation is over, my busy-ness is not! Here's what I've got coming up:

One week from today, we will be moving to a new house about 4 blocks away. It will be a week-long ordeal--with the packers & movers doing most of the heavy lifting--thank goodness. But once everything is moved, my "job" of cleaning, unpacking and getting everything in order will begin. I will have about 4 days to do all that and then I'll be heading to the....

STAMPIN' UP! CONVENTION in Salt Lake City, Utah!!!!! I am so excited! I can't wait to come back and share all the exciting new ideas with you! Just so you know, I'll be in Utah August 5-9.

A couple weeks after I return home my kids' summer vacation will come to an end and my hubby will be deploying to the middle east. Soooooo, I will do my best to post regularly... but just understand why, if it's not as regular as you'd like. Feel free to post a comment once in awhile to keep me motivated... ;)
