Wow, it's been busy around here. Last week my kids had a half day, then a day off from school (already!). My oldest son's birthday was on Friday so we took advantage of the time off and celebrated both my kids' birthdays all at once. My other son's birthday is during the summer and lots of people are gone so he wanted to wait until school was back in session before having a party. We celebrated at a bouncy house place with about 17 kids or so, including mine. The younger kids went home afterwards but the older kids stayed at our house for a sleepover. Needless to say, I was exhausted and it took me a few days to recover from the mayhem.

My son had football practice on Friday night and injured his back but after a little TLC and begging from the coach, was able to play in his game on Saturday. After the game, I headed down to A Muse to see if they needed some help with the move. Well, I guess they did cuz my car was soon loaded up with all of this!!! I had time for 2 loads, then off to dinner for my son's birthday. Let me just say that Annabelle and Mack are GREAT helpers!!!

The new retail shop is not quite ready for business yet but I know the ladies are all working hard. Ross has done a fabulous job with the building! A Muse has resumed shipping orders so if you placed one, I'm sure it'll be in your mailbox soon!

I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to seeing some sneak peeks of the new Saltbox Studio sets. I'm not sure what day they release but Beth does a fabulous job with her images and I would really like to encourage all of you to check out her stuff. I need to start pulling out my SBS winter sets again and get playing but for now I'll share this one with you. I love the vintage feel of this.
Lastly (long post, sorry!), I have a Halloween card class at Stampin-In-The-Rain tomorrow night and again on Sunday, Oct 12th. I would love to see you at either or both classes so be sure to contact the store to sign up!

You have been busy!!! Happy Birthday to your boys! They look like they were having a great day!

Your SBS card is gorgeous!!! The black kitchen notecards really go well with the images!

That was some haul you took over for A Muse too!

Sounds like a busy but fun time! Overnights are always an adventure! Love this SBS card! The coloring is beautiful and the black, red and white color scheme is perfect for that image!
