A quick update.

A happy mail day! I received my Apple Blossom Studio stamps in the mail. The smell was just divine when I opened the envelope! The stamps are even better! They are gorgeous and have heaps of stick power! They are so inspiring! I used one on the cover of my Art Journal that I am doing over at The Scrapbook Establishment. This weeks prompt is 'You are here'. I am so excited to start it! Here is my cover for it:

I bought the book at the Salvo's for 50c and ripped the cover of it. Nice, huh? I love all those graphic, retro patterns.

Not much has been happening here. Work really took it out of me last week as I am still getting over the virus I had. I crashed and burned on thursday/friday. I had a nap when I got home on saturday morning and when I woke up the house was beautifully cleaned by my gorgeous husband! He sure is a keeper!

I went to see a friend yesterday who has just had a little baby boy. Ohhhh how I don't really miss those newborn days. Newborns are cute and all, but the parents looked totally exhausted. Amy will be 10 months old in a couple of days. I am really enjoying this point in her life. She is crawling around and is getting into things. She has such a personality and is starting to understand things, especially what a banana is and how to get one. She loves bananas! Here is a photo I took a couple of weeks ago when she was going to bed for an afternoon nap:

That's it from me today, I am off to make a cup of tea and then get lunch ready for Luke and I and have a picnic in the backyard. The day is just gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by! :)
