Another month come and gone, and it’s summer in Atlanta really soon. I loved flipping the calendar to May when I was a teacher because that meant summer vacation was around the corner. It’s still exciting because I look forward to flowers and swimming pools and outside grilling and all the other great things about this time of year. This is a short post, but I’m checking in quickly about my crafting accomplishments for April before it slips from my mind.
It was a slow crafting month, as I knew it would be because it was a busy month otherwise, and Costa Rica kept us away as well. All I really have to show for it is a few pages on Jude’s second year album.
I find that the most difficult thing about working on these albums for him is that I tend to want to write far too much, and I have to limit myself to make things interesting for him one day rather than just interesting to me – which typically means I need to ramble less. These pages were especially challenging though because there was so much I could have said about our trip, but I tried to keep it pretty simple. The yellow is also out of character for my usual choices on the book, but I wanted something different and sunny, so I decided to go for it. Hopefully it will print looking bright and happy and not blinding.
I also threw an Easter page together as well.
Other than those quick projects, I don’t have much to show. I am making some progress on a knitting feat, but I can’t reveal too much because its eventual recipient is a reader of this blog. The yarn is so delicious though.
And that’s about it for April’s finished work. In news unrelated to crafting, I did manage to set up a Facebook page for this blog. I’d been really resistant to connecting the two despite advice from blogger friends. I gave in this week though because I’m realizing that it’s another way to subscribe for those of you who use Facebook rather than a feed reader or email subscriptions. Plus, to be honest, I am sure all of my personal contacts were not interested in what was happening on this site, so I would sometimes want to share a link to here or to an article related to things I talk about here, but I assume my friend from third grade or a former student might not be interested. Creating a separate page seemed like the best thing to do.
So hop on over and join us (or “Like” us) because I just got this started so nobody really knows yet. (If you are an RSS or email subscriber, I appreciate you dearly, but I’d also love for you to join us there.)
Happy weekending, everyone. I plan to catch up with friends and babies and maybe plant an herb garden. What are your sunny weekend plans?
