Course with Finnabair

Yesterday, I had a special day. I was able to attend a class by Finnabair. Not only is Anna a crazy funny person, the event took place around the corner from where I live. I so enjoyed those 4,5 hours just focusing on scrapbooking, learning new techniques and knowing that DH is taking care of the kids. By the time it was time for me to come home they were both bathed, in their PJs and had dinner. 

Here is what I did 

We played with the Prima resist flowers

Did lots of cool splashing

Misting and masking

Lots and lots of layering

Die cuts and inking and stamping -  I love how the lace turned out! It was plain white when we started.

It was really a great course. Conny from ScrapMe did a fabulous job organizing this fun course!

I will leave you with this photo of DS peeking in DD's classroom checking if she is done with school and can come play with him. He is 9 months now! Time flies. 

This week is also sort of a "test drive" for January when I will go back to work. I have been accepted on a very interesting professional development course. This means to get 2 kids and myself out of the house by 7:15. Drop off DS at the daymom, get DD to school, and then after the course pick up the kids again, cook, supervise homework, play with DS and evening routine. I still have to fine tune some of my routines but generally, it went very well today. It sure felt funny getting my suit out, ironing my shirt... I have not worn these clothes for just over a year. It is feasible but I wont have any time for scrapping and I will have to really make it a point to have a date with DH, otherwise we wont have time for each other for a week!

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
