Crazed and Chaotic

The last couple weeks of school are usually chaotic - projects, finals, field-days, short days, teacher appreciation, etc.  Added to the typical home-life schedules and it can get a little nuts.  Add a graduating student and well . . . look out . . . Crazy is coming.

And that's where we are.  Crazy.  Like that's new though, eh?

We did take our trip, sort of as a family - half of us anyway, up to Cheyenne for our 14 y.o.'s final regular season game, which they lost, in part due to some very bad calls.  Very. Bad.  We finish out the soccer season with a tourney this weekend.  Luckily on our home fields, so no travel, but busy back and forth.  I'm eager to get these days behind us so we can settle into a slower routine for the summer.  I like to think I'm more productive in the summer - even if I'm really not.

Today's color inspiration from the Apron Strings Color Theory board is not a typical combo for me, unless you look just at the colors.  Then you realize they are a fairly typical combo for Halloween/Fall.  

Like found in the October '12 Bigger than a Breadbox kit, the October Afternoon Witch Hazel line - here by Maria Swiatkowski.

Or here, by Nancy Longo, using the February '12 Smaller than a Breadbox kit, the Basic Grey Picadilly line. 

For May you're creating along with the chance to win a selection from the American Crafts Hello Sunshine line.  There's still plenty of time to enter any one, or all, of the challenges posted so far this month.  And remember, you can use the color inspirations to pull from your stash if you don't have the kits suggested.

Happy Tuesday,
