A lot has happened for me. A lot. I got a divorce. I fell in love. I moved out of Florida.
I'm bringing this blog back to it's craft basics. I have a new blog where I write about my adventures moving to a farm in the country. That blog is Welcome to the Country.
I will write soon with cards and other creations but for now view this cute card:

Brian took the boys fishing while I was recovering from the surgery last month. Calvin caught this horridly ugly Toad Fish. He was so mega super proud. Stephen caught a crab but it got away before we got a pic. This is on the fishing pier near our house. We just walk on over. Love that.
I got new business materials. (actually in April, but with being on drugs and stuff I didn't get to enjoy them until May.)
Once a month local entertainers have a get together. This month it was at our house. I tried face painting for the first time:
My friend Laura was in town for a few days, so she came over, and a few other friends Lindley and Jill came too. Everyone brought their kids. A ton of kids. Calvin got his in the head with the tree swing. He got a HUGE lump. Ouch! Actually the whole gathering was a mess. Calvin got hit with a swing, Ethan Frailey (Jill's son) had some foot injury that involved X-rays and swelling, Deal (Laura's youngest) had a huge flesh wound on his leg. Lindley's kids were healthy at least.
I saw some amazing pictures of ombre hair on the net and decided to dye my tips pink. I LOVE IT. So me! Pretty good response. Either everyone is used to me doing weird things with my hair or they actually like it. Never can tell.
And here are some balloons I made:
April was another busy month. We started the month with a trip to my dad and step mom's house. We visited and went to her work's huge Easter activity. They rented out a baseball stadium. I suggested the party would be better with a balloon artist! It was! They ended up getting me and 5 other twisters, plus 5 face painters. I had a line for the entire 5 hours. It was a blast, but I was quite sore the next day.
There was also an appearance from the Easter Bunny and a cool petting zoo. Ethan loves turtles so imagine his joy to get to pet this tortoise.
We also went to the Fort Lauderdale Temple Open House. It was just beautiful. Everyone is invited to Open Houses, so we bought the kids and my Dad and Step-Mom. Going to the Temple is hard work so we got some frozen yogurt after.
During Spring Break we had a beach day. It was not super hot yet, but still fun. Stephen found a dead jellyfish and had to play with it. (well really just pose with it.
I made some cool balloons:
March was a fun filled month. Busy too. It's always busy really.
Here are all the books Stephen had read between Christmas and the end of February. Just a few...
