Ugh, I have been feeling like a bump on a log lately. That is a term my Mom used to use when we were growing up if she caught us just sitting around. We were never allowed to be bored or idle. I have her to thank for my perpetual state of motion. I have never seen someone work so hard in my life. She is one busy woman. I think it kind of drives my husband crazy that i don't seem to be able to sit still much or not multi-task.
Anyway, I have been trying to slow down a little since Hannah graduated last week. Unfortunately the pictures I took did not turn out very well as it was too dark and she was too far away. I think I have some images of her and a couple of her little friends enjoying a last few minutes on their beloved teacher's lap at the picnic which was a nice success.
Since school is out I have been busy on my computer finishing up Jennifer's new blog banner and cards. Jennifer and her artwork are so sweet and I thought her banner needed to reflect that. We both had the inspiration to use her signature candy necklaces as the border at about the same time. In addition we got to work with the uber talented Natasha to collaborate on a signature bunny which she painted for Jen's logo. It just all fell together so nicely and it was an easy job because we were both thinking the same things. I love clients like her who are so easy and excited. Thank you Jen!
I am finishing up some little doo dads for both Jen and Natasha currently and I have a couple of clients waiting in the wings. To be honest I am ready for a vacation but we don't have anything planned until July 4th weekend. I'll just have to balance work and play for a little while.
** To those of you who have emailed me to see if the fire affected us, it was about 20 miles away and is largely (85%) contained today. We were blessed with some cool, wet weather that helped the firefighters gain the upper hand over the weekend. It hasn't smelled very smoky here the last couple of days so I think its well under way to being put out. We're ok, but please send prayers for the 36 families who have lost their homes.**
