I'm still in shock that I won the Gypsy! An awesome prize for being the first thing I've ever won. Anyhoo, I feel as if I've lost an entire day of my life. After I found out the great news late Friday night/early Saturday morning, I could not possibly sleep. I was like a mad Cricut woman in my craft room, paper was flying, the Cricut was chirping, and the shih-tzu was looking at me with the "woman, please go to bed and quit dropping little guitars on me" look. I couldn't stop! I think I started about seven different projects that are now scattered all over the room! I didn't give in until late yesterday afternoon! I FINALLY went to sleep, woke up in the middle of the night, and started yet another creating frenzy. I realized after a short time that I was too tired to be creating and made myself step away from the Cricut. I went to bed, once again, at a weird and wacky time and just woke up! It's after 11 a.m. There's a day missing there somewhere. Hopefully, I can get back to a normal routine now, although I am still on that Gypsy high!
I am going to participate in MPS's father's day challenge and I am almost done with my project and plan on submitting it shortly. I am also working on some scrapbook pages, as well. It feels so good to have "myself" back again after such a long "hiatus". I was beginning to think, that after so many years of grief and turmoil, that I would be sad for the rest of my life. I am smart enough to know that there will always be grief and sad "moments", but at least I've found something to take the "edge" off of those moments and now they are just moments and not years. This August will be the 12 year anniversary of Bailey's death. That time frame is just way too long to have been "dark and twisty" (Grey's Anatomy line from Meredith that I love from years ago). I am so blessed to have Noah and Jackson in my life. They are my reason to be happy and peaceful. :)
Much Cricut love and sparkly wishes and dreams to all of you,
