Catching Up

Every once in a while, okay it's, unfortunately, more often than that, but I'm sticking with every once in a while, a week goes flying by and I really don't know where it went or what I did. Such was my week last week. I thought it was Wednesday on Thursday, thus loosing an entire day on top of the week rushing along. This phenomenon was, I'm sure, due to the fact that my kids started school and getting used to a new schedule coming off summer can be, and is, nuts. During times like that I just keep paddling along, hoping my feet will eventually brush up against solid ground. Luckily, they did today -- brushed up against something fairly solid, so my toes dug in. I started back on my cleaning routine, the baby cooperated by following the same routine he has been in since last week, and I'm working on finding a moment or two in the day for me - even if that moment is only 15 minutes long, I'M GOING TO FIND IT! There was one challenge that will finish up today -- thank you Jennifer for the wonderful inspiration, and there is a 5 on Friday winner to select. I tossed the entrants into which picked lucky number 1, who is Bessie! Bessie, you know the drill -- you'll get a tasty treat in your next shipment. Look for this week's 5 on Friday and create your layout for a chance to win. In the meantime you can see the layout Bessie created from last week's 5 on Friday Challenge.

On another note, Missy had a question about Apron Strings' Yahoo Group, which serves as our chit-chat place, but has its fair share of challenges and contests. Missy you can find the Group here. Some exciting news -- Apron Strings will have a blurb in Scrap 'n Art e-Magazine's Kit Review. Scrap 'n Art magazine is online by subscription, but subs are only $10 A YEAR! Their magazine, besides just scrapbooking, offers info on paper crafting, tutorials, product demos, sketches, tips and more. Plus there's a whole slew of subscriber exclusive places to wander around in. Ooh, and that $10 will also get you access to available past issues. It's hard to find a deal like that these days. Is my excitement showing? LOL, well, I am very excited to be included in their review.

Let's see what else -- oh, a large portion of October's kits are here and OOOHHH MY GOODNESS, they are just too cute. I love the Halloween and Fall lines that came out and had a really hard time choosing. Luckily, I have November to let the overflow spill into :). I'm so looking forward to the upcoming kits, September's turned out fabulous and October's makes my fingers itch, so much so that I may need to show some super sneaks. We'll see if I can hold out.

Okay, well I think that's enough rambling for one night. Turn in your "Jennifer" challenge and look for this week's challenge AND 5 on Friday.
