Hey Stamping Strangers!!

Woohoo?  Anyone out there?  It's been almost 10 whole months since I last blogged - WOW - and how things have changed!  I'm not even sure I remember how to blog...I even thought that I forgot how to stamp!!  Thankfully, I either still remember how to do it or I'm reteaching myself - haven't quite decided yet!! 

So where have I been you ask?  Working and not working.. both - yes.  Right around the day of my last post I started a new job (out of the house) while continuing with my old job of 16 years (working from my home).   There were some big changes, even some scary changes ... I had put my big girl panties on (and if you've ever seen me... you know they've got to be BIG!!).  But boy am I glad I did that.  I'm so thankful for this new chapter in my life; so thankful for the people I work with and I couldn't be happier about NOT working weeknights or weekends!!  Even though it's been 10 months - I'm still adjusting, but between work and kids, I have found time to stamp again!  (and speaking of kids - boy have they grown up too! One is driving with his license for almost a year now and another has her permit and the youngest will be in high school in only a few months - YIKES - time really does go by too fast!)

Okay - enough about me - let's look at something crafty - and I think it's perfect timing for this project!! 

I picked up where I left off, creating for the Inspiration Emporium Inspiration Emporium, and jumped right into this Pocket Watch project.  I have to say that it felt amazing!!

This little girl comes from the Our Craft Lounge set called Treasured Friend - it's one of my favorite images that I created for OCL.  I thought she'd fit perfectly in the pocket watch - I added a little river rock and some Glossy Accents for the water so it looks as if she is wading in the water.  I also used an Idea-Ology Muse Token, which I felt sort of tied the metal together yet kept it soft and "wonderful'. 

Be sure to check out the other fabulous creations from the rest of the team over at The Inspiration Journal

Although I am officially back I can't promise how often I'll post - I can promise that I'm stamping and taking pictures though!!  My goal for now is once per week - perhaps a weekly journal of sorts.  I hope you'll stick around, and if you've stuck with me this long - you can probably handle a little longer, right?

Thanks!!
