Before I go.....

We are almost all packed up for vacation! We leave tomorrow for the Outer Banks (North Carolina) by way of Maryland. We'll be at our son, daughter-in-law and grandson's for 2 nights and then the 5 of us will proceed to the beach! YAY!
Things have been pretty crazy here in the meantime. I have been working for 2 weeks on the designs of my new card set for the Fall craft fairs. I wanted to have everything cut so I would just have to assemble them while on vacation. (I can't do 6 hours on the beach like the rest of my family...I'm too fair skinned) There are 7 cards in a box and I'll do 30 boxes this year. That's 210 cards folks!
Then, I've been clearing out bathrooms. We are having our 2 1/2 bathrooms renovated. The powder room is finished and our contractor will be working on the other two while we are gone. That means that I had to choose light fixtures, mirrors and towel bars for all three bathrooms. (That was in addition to picking out 3 vanities, commodes and plumbing hardware.) I have been so confused! .
I'm hoping it will be like HGTV when we come home...you know, "1-2-3 open your eyes and see the reveal!" I will post pictures when everything is in place.
I have also been working on 2 swaps and a secret project that will be revealed very soon! Just a peek for now. By the time I return I will be able to post about it.
The squirrels have been going crazy in our yard. We have 2 hickory trees and the squirrels (and chipmunks, too) have been climbing up and down, eating their bellies full and also stashing nuts all over for the winter later. This little guy has a big box of acorns all to himself. He is very happy!
Oh well, I will miss you all but I will be having a good time being a grandmother! (We bought the Disney movie, Cars, to take with us and even some little Matchbox cars from "Cars". Charlie should like that!)
I have to rescue him from the people who created this look....what have you done with my grandson?
That's more like it!
Is it my imagination or have I completely lost control in Blogger? I can't seem to situate my pictures where I want them. Wonder what I'm doing wrong?

I looooooooooooooooooooooove Charlie with the fauxhawk! There's absolutely nothing wrong with wild spiky hair. Ahem.
Have a fantastic time in the OBX (I'm very jealous, this is a great time to go!)

Oh - have fun on your vacation. I hate when you leave blogland though. I do understand, however, that you have another life, other than crafting! Can't wait to see what you've made when you return! :) Have fun!
