So, its been awhile….
We are back from our month-long trip to the states and getting settled again in Zurich. It is always a tough transition after such a long time away. Jacob has to re-adjust to a daycare where he doesn’t speak the language, the time change is brutal for everyone and normal life takes a bit of getting used to all over again. This time has been especially hard – my husband had been off work for a few months and Jacob was LOVING having him around. He started working again & mommy is paying the price with a very angry toddler who misses daddy. But, one day at a time. It is good to be back and I always welcome routine.
I haven’t had tons of time to get in the craft room, but when I get my new kits each month, I can’t wait to put them to use. I always give myself a challenge to see how many cards I can create in 1 hour using only the kit contents (not including ink and other crafting tool essentials).
For this month’s Studio Calico release, I ordered both main card kit & the add-on – I wasn’t over the moon about the stamp set in the Penny Arcade main kit, but loved the Pinball add-on set. Despite not even touching the June kit yet, I went straight to work on July – here is what I managed in 1 hour (and that time included 1 mess up card which I ditched after about 15 minutes!).
