Hello my friends! Sorry for the quiet week from me. Seems I’ve managed to take a bit of an unexpected blog break while trying to adjust to the changes in our little household since taking Pete off to college last Friday. I knew it was going to hit me hard, not having my boy. But I didn’t know how hard until the day actually arrived. I think it’s been just about the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through…..
But fortunately, my boy is doing good. And that’s all that matters. He’s all moved in and getting settled. Just finished up his first week of classes already.
It was getting dark here, but I wanted to get a shot of Pete by this beautiful building. This is the outside of one of his class buildings. I must say that it’s a very pretty campus. Seems a very good spot for my boy to be.
And where have I been this past week? Trying to keep busy. Trying to keep my mind off the sads, but not doing too well with that yet. My friends have been doing a great job of occupying my time with dinner and craft dates. Thank goodness for good friends, right? And I did grab up my little Missy and whisked her off for a few days at the beach. Total unplanned. And totally the perfect spot to be.
I have not stepped foot into my craft room this past week. But I do have a little framed project to share with you today that I made with Little Yellow Bicycle’s adorable new Feels Like Home collection.
I like to remove the glass so that I can add bulky dimensional accents like this chipboard, wooden buttons, and fabulous pleated fall leaf. This frame came with a cheap chipboard mat that I covered with patterned paper for an easy extra layer.
Thank you for visiting with me today! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
