trying to get....

in the spirit of the season..... been so busy lately and getting caught up in the "hype" so this weekend is all about slowing down and just enjoying...
I taught my class on Monday and it went very well, I was so proud of my cards and received lots of praise on them from the customers... I will share them here later...
Right now, I am sitting here drinking coffee with peppermint mocha creamer, watching The Polar Express with the kids and enjoying the lights.
WE packed a huge stuffed backpack from the girl scout troop and are donating it to the church to give to homeless on the streets in Providence... feels good to participate in things like that...

Today was spent stamping at Carols all morning (always fun and relaxing!) then I have begun swimming at the Y in Barrington with the special ed kids ... they do a fantastic swim program for them and even though Ryan isn't in the district for school, I still know most of the kids that are in that... and its so fun to see how much they have grown and how great they are at swimming... its nice for them to be in a place where everyone is truly the same and there is no struggle for them! I hope to teach Ryan to swim one day and this will be the beginning of great things...

I expect to receive my Ali Edwards Life Artist book any day now and cannot wait to sit and be inspired by it... I really need some inspiration right about now...
also reading Live Eat Pray.... such an awesome book, so inspiring and making me really evaluate what I want to do with my life and why, etc... sorry for getting all Oprah lol

I"m keeping my fingers crossed the next few days for some special scrappy related things... if you could please keep your fingers crossed for me too, I'd appreciate it...

Until later, peace... and hope you all get a moment to just sit and enjoy the season too!
