Aqua Telephone

Hello!  Happy Monday to you!  I hope that your adjusting well to the time change!  I was doing all fine until last night when I just wasn't tired.  Add some coughing to the mix and I didn't fall asleep until past 3:30 am, thankfully my kids slept till 9 and I don't seem to be doing all that bad.  I bet I will crash tonight!  Tomorrow Ariel has school and will have to wake up earlier so I hope that goes well.  I'll get everything ready tonight for school so she can sleep as long as possible!  Chad is gone this week, he's gone on a trip of sorts to help his friend go to Cleavland to pick up a van!  Tons of people here buy vehicles in the States and go to pick them up and save lots of money!  I think they will have a great time together!  I will be driving Ariel to and from school which I usually don't so that may be an adjustment!  And I've planned playdates and some outings to keep myself busy.  I think the hardest time is when the kids go to bed.  I am a bit of a night owl and don't go to bed that early so it's a bit lonely than!  I think it may go two ways, either I will get lots of crafting done, or not much at all!  We shall see!

I am still loving my Zing aqua embossing powder and have been cooking up fun colors that go with it, today orange!

First I embossed the telephone from Just Saying Hi in the aqua, I masked it (stamped the telephone on a post it note and cut it out) and stamped the Classic Fabric design in orange over top.  I traced the envelope flap from a HA envelope onto the mocha strip and hand cut it out (got the idea from Shari's video on the HA blog!) Added some twine and a orange flower I got at Michael's! 

Last week I went with Ariel's class on a field trip, rollerskating!  It went so much better than I imagined! Almost all of the kids were able to figure it out and quite a few skated on there own!  I helped Ariel for a bit but once she figured it out she didn't want my help at all!  She would skate for a bit get scared and go down, not fall down but go down and than back up and than back down and so on.  But she never complained and she stayed in the rink the whole time!  She wants to go back!  I also really enjoyed rollerskating!  I can't believe that I forgot to bring my camera with me!  But luckily my friend emailed me some pics:


As you can see by Ariel's pants she helped clean the floor!  Not too impressed with how dusty the floor was but oh well!  :>

I better run and give these kiddies a bath!  I took them out to play in the snow for a bit before dinner, I hope I've tired them out to go to bed easily with this time change!  Hope your having a great week!
