The Weekend!

Ahhhh, Let the weekend begin!

I love the quiet of the weekend mornings. It's "my time" to catch up on all the blogs I follow. I love grabbing a cup of coffee and catching up on the things I missed during the week. Sadly, I rarely give myself this time. I need to learn to slow down and enjoy that cup of coffee rather than the effect it gives me! LOL!

There are so many incredibly creative people out there. It's so inspiring! There are also so many different crafts out there that I would love to learn! Oh, the time....See, the coffee effect is already kicking in!

This week has been very challenging at work. When this happens I feel drawn more and more to my studio to craft and think. What a blessing it is to have a place and a "thing" to go to when things get rough. I come out of that room refreshed and ready to face another day.

This week, I have been working on albums. I have designed and written a tutorial on an album that holds 7 tags per page. I call it Policy Meets Tag Mini. It was a blast to make. Here are a few shots of it...
