SO I am hopefully feeling better now - my back is better - not 100% but better. I also got a killer cold last week- head and throat yuckiness. My theory is I caught at the pumpkin patch because the other chaperon's I rode with had it too this week as well as one of the teachers. I have pretty much been doing NOTHING!! Although I did get dug out of a huge mess in my studio - so I can create now - right? Lets hope so!
First up - our sketch for this beautiful Monday!
The snowflake represents any cut out item - Like a tree or an owl or... Don't you just love that though! It is a Rhonna Farrer brush - from her Little Christmas kit on 2 Peas. LOVE it! Now to find that magical time to USE it! HA!

SO I am preparing for CROP CAMP!!! I leave friday early to head south - way south for me! For a Fun filled 3 day scrapbooking retreat weekend! with like over 100 of my new bestest friends! :-) I am VERY excited and SO looking forward to seeing my friends I met at Cropaganza! I am teaching some classes, doing a make and take, and hopefully getting some of my own cropping done! Ya you heard it here first - Heather will be scrapbooking this weekend! It will require much prep this week though if I am really going to make it happen - so cross your fingers for me girls!
I also have Stamping Night out on Thursday - 2 make and takes and a demo - FREE for my Sensational Six Club members - $3 of you are not in the club. Did you know you did not have to be local to get in on that fun? Well you don't - you can e-mail me if you want more info.

Well I know not everyone is dying to hear the rest of the caterpillar adventures - but if you do then keep reading!
My friend the black fuzzy Caterpillar - is still hanging in there
and not wrapped up in a cocoon yet. You probably guessed by now where
he turned up. In a shoe of course! The funny thing is that Laney put
her shoe ON! Then put the other one on and was wiggling her foot - so
i told her to stand up and walk a few steps.
And she said "No! There is something in there!"
She slipped off her shoe, and reached in - and yanked her hand back out saying "Ouch!".
I said "What's wrong Laney?"
"IT'S THE CATERPILLAR!!!" she yelled with much excitement.
I was like "Nah - its not the caterpillar"
"Yes it is it POKED me!" SO she started shaking her shoe - and my word - out popped that big black furry Caterpillar.
And yes I have been giving him fresh leaves and water sprinkles every few days. HA! How in the heck he did not get squished by Laneys foot - and WHY he would crawl into the stinkiest shoe in the house I have no idea! That girl has stinkier feet than her momma, poor thing!
Since I wrote this - I have had even more adventures with our furry little friend. I woke up on the couch one night - and he was trucking down the hall! I put the bug box in front of him and he stopped in his tracks, then crawled in after a few seconds. Then the next morning Laney found him AGAIN - in the same shoe as before! Crazy I know! I was also sitting reading my bible study book after that - quiet morning after the kids left for school and I kept hearing this noise - what the heck is that noise??? It was Mr Caterpillar eating a nice crunchy leaf! I KNOW!
