Wow it is hard to believe that it has been 11 months since I have blogged.  I look back at the cards I have done and think why don't I have time to do this anymore :(  I have started back to school taking one online class at a time but it is still hard to do plus work 4 days a week.  My weekends and days off are spent on school work.  I am a LPN working towards my RN degree.  I hope to be finished the end of 2014 or mid 2015 but then where I work (Mayo Clinic, Rochester MN) I have to go to get my Bachelors which will take another 2 years.  Thank heavens I don't have any husband or children as I don't know how I would fit them in.  If anyone has any suggestions on helping me balance out my stuff I would love to get back into card making.  Thanks for being my sounding board.

My sister (creative memories demonstrator) is having a Craft and Scrap Retreat in Lake Mills, Iowa next Friday 9am-Sunday 3pm if anyone is interested.  We have room for I think 6 more people.  You can Stamp, Scrapbook, sew, really whatever craft you want to do.  The cost for the weekend is $30 (not including meals).  There are 5 bedrooms that sleep 2 each and must be a couple of pull outs as the Razzy Retreat can sleep 12.  If interested please let me know ASAP.

Well September came and went along with the rest of 2012.  I can't seem to get in the mood for cardmaking.  Any thoughts?  It was a busy end of 2012, so busy that I have taken time off from the RN program.  My washer broke, grandma and great aunt both went to the nursing home.  Then the holidays starting in November and a trip to Florida for work.  I don't know where the time has gone.  Goals for 2013:  get busy making cards for OWH, work on my RN degree, pay off my bills for a new computer and washer.  Both old ones crashed, weight loss with friends and who knows what else.  Hope everyone has a great 2013 and leave me ideas to get back into stamping/cardmaking.
