I’ll admit that I arrived home from Salt Lake City feeling as though I had been in a salad spinner for five days! But I happily returned to my normal routine, hanging laundry on the line, cleaning bathrooms, and loving a little boy’s affection and perpetual conversation (“Grandma, milk is the soup of ice cream!”).
As soon as I arrived home, DL announced that we had been invited to a birthday party for a neighbor Monday night, so the summer fun continues — and last night was a band concert in the park. Hard to believe July is 2/3 gone.
Here’s another of my Convention swaps from last week, with the layered-tag motif I can’t stop using. The swap was “Something Old, Something New.” At least one stamp set had to be old (Everything Eleanor) and the card had to have at least one element from the new catalog (ribbon, DSP). So fun to figure this out! If you’re wondering about the sentiment, the other half of this, from Petite Pairs, is “I’m here for you.”
