This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

The weekend was far too short. I really think we should petition to have longer weekends and much shorter work weeks. I just need more time to play!

It’s been so many years since I’ve had to plan and prepare meals on any sort of regular basis, that I had completely forgotten how time consuming that little chore can be. And taking hubby back and forth to work – well that cuts out another hour of my time daily. During the week I also do the taxi-mom gig with Our Boo and currently I play this role over the weekends for a while too. Then there’s the whole sleep thing. Gotta get myself the proper amount of sleep or we’ll have migraine issues pop up. Laundry has to be done too. So you see, there are just too many little details that get in the way of my weekend time when I’d rather be doing my artsy stuff!  LOL  It’s all good though.  I’m enjoying life these days.

Artful Joy and Puppy Love

I did manage to play a little. I’m getting ready to launch a new website (a blog really) to host some journaling retreats. If you like creative art journals or you’ve been interested in what the fuss is all about – be sure to check back here in a week or two and see what’s cooking with that new blog.

I love art swaps and I’ve hosted my fair share of them. I participate in all sorts of creative swaps (ATCs, journals, cards, etc.) For the last couple of years I’ve limited my hosting to mostly my CHW website activities. However, I’m now considering hosting a few artful swaps that are not limited to CHW members only. But I just haven’t had enough time open up to do so. Maybe this winter I’ll have more opportunity for such things.

I’m also busy building a couple of digi-kits and printables to share. When I get these FREEBIES ready to go, I will be delivering them via my Craft Happy Website. Some products will be available to guests who visit our site. However, most will be for folks who are actively involved with CHW. [Update: The community CHW is no longer online]

In addition to other goodies, I’ll be sharing a paper pack I made to create the below digi-LO.  Isn’t Miss Lacy just the cutest in this picture! 😀

Lacy & Me
All digi items by me except the fiber. That’s from Amy Kneppers Diver Down kit.

Offline for Play Time

Tonight my friends I’m taking time off from cooking, cleaning, and personal creations. Instead I’m going to the Civic Center to catch the musical play “CATS”. I’m sure looking forward to this evening out on the town with hubby. We will be sharing our monthly anniversary evening together – with Our Boo in tow this time. I suppose we still need a chaperone?! LOL

Thanks for Stopping in for a Visit.
