So much to post and so little time......

Somehow I've lost an entire month!  I know I am having fun when I cannot find time to blog.  It all started in February; first with the new Idea Book paper and product exchange. I made 36 "Buzz and Bumble" layouts and in exchange got 35 cards and layouts using our newest papers and products in return.  That was followed by a 4 day retreat on Lake Coeur D'Alene at Camp Lutherhaven.  This was the third time I attended the Creative University Retreat put on by Tresa Black.  Not only is it a retreat in a beautiful setting with great friends; we also take classes and learn new techniques and work on projects into the wee hours of the night.  Keep checking this blog for some of these projects that I hope to post later this week.  Besides having fun crafting, I've been busy at work, teaching, and at church with the GEMS Girls Club (Girls Everywhere Meeting Their Savior).  We are currently raising funds for 5 counselors to attend the annual leadership conference in Vancouver, BC.  Early February, with the help of my counselors, we had a Potatoe Bar Dinner and Bunko Night.  Our latest fundraiser is selling flowers.  Check out the website.   http://www.flowerpowerfundraising.com/campaign?.q=campaign&campaign_id=15352

April and Spring appear to have arrived at the same time, so now it's hard to stay inside and get my projects finished.  They are going to have to wait at least until tomorrow since we have Kaydon, our youngest grandson visiting.  He's only 19 months and such a delight.  I can never get enough of that kid.  Oh for just 1/2 of his energy!
