Happy Hump Day

Where does the time go?  Seems like it has been a non-stop whirlwind of activity here lately.

Yesterday, Tuesday, Ainsley had her Junior Grange Activity Day.  I don't really know much about the Grange.  I know it is a rural service community that was formed to help farmers band together to lobby.  At least that is what I seem to remember reading.  What I also know, is that our local Grange has become quite the hot spot for homeschoolers.  Tuesday afternoons are fun activities for homeschooled kids.  A chance to get out and socialize.  Yesterday, it was my job to help the kids socialize by making name tags and playing a few games.  With my Cricut I made these...

I found the svg file at and my Sure Cuts A Lot software.  We played a quick game where the children made the animal sounds to try and group themselves.  And I made these....

We taped them to the children's backs and had them play a game of guess who.  I cut these with a Disney Cricut cartridge.  Guess who didn't come home with very many die cuts.  hee hee...

With the Grange and swim practice and ballet in full swing, I haven't had much time for me and crafting (did I mention I made 5 of each of the above figures?)  But, I did sneak one layout in.  Easy because it was a lift of the talented Robbie from

You can see Robbie's gallery here.  Pretty Pink Paislee and lots of Prima.  Of course, I needed lots of Zip Dry to hold it all together.

Well, still more to do here.  Tomorrow is my oldest's birthday.  So hard to believe he is already 15!  Eeeek.
