We need to Catch Up

My Oh My! It has been forever since I last Updated my poor Blog! So now I have the fun task of catching you up on everything that I have been working on.

First though, let me start of by explaining to you about the past few Inspiration Monday posts. I have tried and tried and tried again to create more amazing cards for the amazing Challenge Blogs but unfortunately I have fallen so short of my overall standards for cards so I have just thrown them away. Its not that the challenges haven't been beyond inspirational or challenging enough, its just that my stress levels have been so high that it shows through in my work. Kind of like the philosophy of "angry cooking." If you cook while you are angry or upset the food always comes out tasting terrible! So this is somewhat applied to my card making and crafting this past month and a half. It is just really hard to concentrate when your upstairs neighbor is always jumping around, they never sleep, work, or go to school! Its none stop and most of the time drives me to sit and read in my car. (I'm really telling the truth about that. Just today I was forced from my home at 5pm and decided to come back in at about 6:48pm just to listen to the thumping and jumping again.) On top of having to deal with that with little help from management I have to see a Chiropractor 3 times a week for the next 3 months due to a auto collision that took my working car and forced me to pick up and hunk of junk car that has cast me a small fortune to try and keep on the road. The stress just keep building and building. **Sorry, I am beginning to whine and complain. Sorry about that. Moving on!

So I just haven't been able to get my head in the game for the Inspiration Monday posts. I am really sorry about that and hopefully I can kick things back into gear and give you the followers and fan of my Blog the fun Challenges again soon!

I have also been really busy working on a few large orders. In the past month I have had an order of 15 photo cards, one photo session, 2 hair bows, then another photo session, an order of 20 cards, and a order of prints, then a fun disk art order! I have actually been really really busy from all of that! =) Its been nice though. After doing all of that I even felt relaxed enough that I could finish a 12x12 Scrapbook page.

Alright, now to move on to the fun stuff! Showing off the Orders! Check out the next post for the first!
