Life Has Been Busy!

Life has been super busy lately. Ever since I returned from California it has been a whirlwind. Days at the store just fly by. Product is delivered almost everyday, plans are taking form for Scrapfest and our upcoming Spring Retreat, we just finished hosting 4 sold out CHA Giveaway Crops and the regular flow of our friends stopping by the store to stock up on their favourite supplies.

Life outside the store has been equally as busy! Jason had an out of town hockey tournament in London. I always enjoy attending this event with my favourite goalie and his awesome coach. Amanda celebrated her 19th birthday. I can't believe my first born child is old enough to drink! Yikes. Jason and Amanda both had their wisdom teeth taken out (on the same day). The recovery for both of them went well, but I was a full time nurse for a couple of days. Matt had several dentist appointments in preparation for getting his braces on. Just when we finished with pudding and Slurpees, we were right back at it again.

I have been keeping up with my Design Team work for Sketch Support, but I haven't had time for much else in the way of scrapbooking. The only thing that has kept me going through all of this chaos is my reading time. Every evening before bed I curl up with my Kindle and forget about the pace of the day/week/months. I think is has been a blessing that I have taken up reading.

The first book I read on my Kindle was When Angels Cry. I stumbled across it while looking for another book title. It sounded interesting and was only $1. I just finished it tonight and now I am about to start another book by the same author.

I highly recommend reading as a great stress reliever! Off to my cozy bed to get started on the next one!



  1. Trust me I totally understand how busy life can get these days! Just keep reminding yourself it will be over soon!!!

  2. You really should slow down a bit. You are in control. Don't let life control you.

  3. Love how reading takes you away from reality for a little while and you can forget about the stresses of real life!

  4. Just think it is a great time of the year for it to fly by! See ya winter, hello spring! Miss ya!
