Blog Slacker

I have been such a blog slacker this past month - but I have some good excuses! The past four weeks have been so busy and such a different schedule for me, and I just didn't get around to blogging. The first week, I subbed a full week at Faith Christian School. I was back in first grade for the whole week, and it was a fun but very busy week for me. That weekend, my parents arrived to spend a week with us. We kept busy doing lots of fun things - a trip to Cook's Farm Dairy, thrift store shopping, and a day in Toledo at the zoo and a Mud Hens game. Drew and I traveled back to South Carolina with them and spent the past two weeks there spending time with family and friends and getting spoiled. Jim came to get us this past weekend (we met in Cincinnati), and we got home last night. See, I have been busy!
Today, I want to share a few crafts that I worked on while I was in South Carolina. The first is a wreath that my mom and I made for her office door at work. We found the instructions here and the inspiration here. We found that the best prices on seed packets was at Dollar Tree - four for a dollar. My sister, Nora, and I had a scrapbooking sleepover one night at her apartment. I made two layouts while I was there. I made this one about Drew's third birthday celebrations using a sketch from Let's Scrap.
I also made this layout about our visit to the Greenville Children's Museum. I will blog about our visit there later this week. I used a Page Maps sketch to do this layout.
We had a great three weeks with my parents, and I will blog more about our time together throughout this week. We are pretty much home now for the summer, so I should be able to be a more faithful blogger now!
