A little update...

Hello all!  I thought I would write a little update of what we're up to.  We will finally get to move into our house Tuesday (after being here in California for almost three weeks!).  I crave the routine and comfort that being in our own place with our own things will bring.  I'm also very excited to get my craft room up and going - I can't wait to surround myself with my papers, glue, mists, etc. and get to scrapping!  The kids are doing great at school, Josh's job is going well, and I start teaching on the 11th.  We are blessed :).

Even without my usual arsenal of supplies, I have managed to get a couple of layouts done with the September Scrapbook Circle kit.  The fact that I created anything is a true testament to how wonderful Lisa's kits are.  I had to buy a glue stick and borrow a little bit of paint and a few buttons, but the kit supplied EVERYTHING else I needed.  I also got the Chalkboard Mist add-on in black, white, and teal :).  Do you see the Precocious Paper mini Bridal Satin Blossom?

Have you heard about The Paper Variety?  It's a new challenge blog with weekly challenges, fantastic prizes, and a wonderful group of people.  The first challenge will be going live soon, so stop by and click follow.  And if you visit today, you may see a familiar face being introduced as a member of their new design team ;).

As soon as my craft room is functional, I'll be relisting all of my dyed cardboard flowers, bridal satin blossoms, sewing pattern petals, super stars, ribbons and embellishment sets, cards, etc.  All of my fabric and lace flowers are available right now.  Halloween, fall, and Christmas designs are just around the corner :).

And real quick, thank you to everyone applying for the Precocious Paper design team!  I'm excited to see all the applications filling up my inbox.  It's going to be a VERY difficult decision, there is so much talent!  If you are interested, see THIS post.  I'm looking for crafters of all kinds, not just scrapbookers, so don't hesitate to apply :).

Have a very happy weekend! Tessa
