Breaking the Silence

It's been nearly 4 months since I posted anything. Where does the time go? I honestly kept meaning to get on here, but something else always seemed to take priority.

The main priority in our household right now is "The Boss". I can't believe how big my granddaughter Alessia is getting. She just turned 4 months and is over 14 lbs. She is definitely the ruler of the house. I can't remember what it was like before she came. Almost everyday after work she hangs out with Nana and Poppa and on most weekends we look after her from Friday night to Sunday night. It's such a treat to spend our free time with her! What's not to love about that smile!

Mr. R has also been spending every Saturday in the forest a.k.a. the property we purchased. Over the last four Saturday's he has managed to cut down a load of trees and clear a space that is about 20 x 20 feet. I see a camping trip in the very near future. In fact, it looks like it will be next weekend because our Canada Day holiday is Tuesday, so we have decided to take the Monday off and make it a 4 day weekend. I wonder if I can convince him I need Friday off as well since it is my birthday?

I'm very excited about becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator again. I just can't get enough of all the wonderful products they have. Since I spend a *small* fortune on crafting supplies, I figured I should at least get a discount on all the yummy stuff I buy! I'm trying to figure out how to make this more of a business this time around instead of just purchasing the minimums myself. Not that I won't be doing that anyway, but I might as well see if I can't earn a bit of income from my addiction passion!

Thanks for popping by, and I promise I will try to get on here a lot more often!
