Project 2011 – Week Eleven
March 17, 2011 § 8 Comments
Well, it’s been an interesting week for me.
Hubby is away and while I miss him terribly, I’m also reveling in the opportunity to get back to my single parent, I’m a strong independent woman and can meet any challenge, roots. Not that I have any desire to go back to that full-time…no thanks. Still, it’s nice to know I can still manage on my own if I have to, I’m just really glad I don’t have to anymore.
To that end, I’ve spent most of the week simply taking care of basics and haven’t really done much work on any specific goal. I have however decided to add making homemade cards to my list…
This is my first card. I bought the purple cards pre-cut packaged in a discount bin at my craft store. I thought they were really cute. I added the stamp and though it’s not quite perfectly centered, it’s pretty good for a first go.
I’m going to use the calligraphy pen for a Happy Birthday message and if I’m okay with the results then my BF is getting it for her birthday on Sunday…if I’m unhappy with the results then I’ll keep trying until I am. Or until I run out of cards. 😉
That’s pretty much it this week for my goals but I want to leave with this pic,
for us girls who at least once in our teens suffered from…
This was Daughter this afternoon around 4:00 pm, just over three hours after I picked her up from her friends’ house from a sleepover. They were up until nearly 5:00 am watching movies, playing board games and pigging out on chips and snacks.
I’m so grateful, too well aware of what she “could” be doing, I let her sleep and just smile…and take her picture.
She may not be anywhere near doing what I was at her age, she still will be doing it eventually and at some point I’ve got to deal with it.
