I'm Sorry

No, I didn't forget I had a blog, even though it would seem that way. I've always struggled a little with balancing all the pieces of my busy life. Unfortunately, my creative side is what gets put on the back burner more often than not so I can take care of everything else! That's something I plan to work on this year.

I've recently "acquired" a new craft room. We have a storage building out back which housed my husband's office. He is no longer using that office and told me quite some time ago that I could have the space. I didn't think I wanted it at first...I liked the convenience of having everything inside my house so I could create whenever the urge hit. The problem with that was, with it being in the middle of everything (it was my dining area space), that I had a difficult time keeping it organized and there were always other things going on in the same space. This made it difficult to walk away from a project that wasn't completed yet. Leaving things out meant things were going to get messed up.

So, I finally decided to accept his offer and move all my craft supplies. I cleaned out the office, repainted it and moved all my things in. It isn't a large room, but it's a great work space. I will eventually post pictures, but I still have several details to take care of in there first.

Now that I have this space, my daughter and I make time to go out and "play" as often as possible. Turns out, it isn't all that inconvenient going out there after all! I'll actually be "scheduling" time to go out and "work" now. Hopefully I'll get better about blogging my creations as well. Maybe this will be the year my business gets closer to the direction I want it to go!

Anyway, here's a cute little card I made. Perfect way to say I'm sorry for just about anything. I had forgetting a birthday in mind when I made this, but really it could be an apology card for any reason at all.

I think this little guy is so cute with his big sad eyes.

I'm aggravated that I can't find who to give credit to for this digital stamp. I keep all my digital stamps in folders with the owner's name, but I can't find this one now! I printed it out a while back, so I think the image is actually stored on my external hard drive and that's why I can't find it on this computer. I also can't figure out what I did with my hard drive during my massive cleaning/organizing project. I know it must be somewhere in my house, but I haven't found it yet. As soon as I do, I will look this image up so I can credit it properly. Meanwhile, if someone reads this who knows who this image belongs to, PLEASE let me know! I found my hard drive! The stamp came from Beccy's Place and you can get him free here!

UPDATED: I am entering this card in the January challenge over at Beccy's here. This is the first challenge of any kind I've participated in a VERY long time! I figured it was a great way to start out the new year!!!


  1. Great job on the colouring Jennifer, I just LOVE his shaggy coat! I really like the simple sentiment you added too, it's perfect for any occasion where an apology is in order. Good luck with the new studio, it sounds fabulous, and much better than having to clean up the dining room all the time!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Beccy! I LOVE your stamps and look forward to working with many more of them soon!
