Beachbound!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I've had a sick girl this week (yes, she really does get sick every month! We're working with our docs to determine if it's more than just out of control reflux and asthma). Anyway, obviously she's needed my attention and I've had to tend to my other responsibilities that are part of my daily life (I need to figure out a way to pay the bills by crafting!). So, I haven't had time leftover for blogging. I was able to pop into a thrift store earlier this week and gathered some awesome goodies for a grand total of $2.18. I'll share those with you next week.

I've got some projects on my mind and some things I hope to finish up next week and show all of you, but in the meantime, my girl is feeling much better and hubby and I are going away for the weekend ALONE! Taylor's staying with a very dear friend who's got a houseful of girls of her own so they're sure to have blast while hubby and I soak up some sun and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

I'll catch up with you all next week and please check in next Friday to see who's been featured as the Featured Follower.

Have a great weekend!

YEAH! How cool to see you up there in the Artistic Mother blog roll - it was a nice surprise! Looking forward to seeing your projects!
Have a great time this weekend (sounds like so much fun!) - K has been sick all week too - strep throat! Have a fab time and see you next week (I have mags. for you, but I guess we have both not been to school).

I want to make sure that as much as possible that everyone else in the group is aware of when you post something for our group, The Artistic Mother's Art Group, so that you will receive visits. We now have 99 participants. That is so great! Because we are so large, it is not possible to visit each and every post that every member puts up; so when you post something related to The Artistic Mother's Art group, I would suggest that you start your title off with "Artistic Mother" to maximize your chances of others from the group paying you a visit. I look at the blog roll for our group every day; and when I see those words, I automatically know that this is a post that I don't want to miss. Please continue to check the blog roll on my blog for Artistic Mother Group related posts on a regular basis so that we can continue to encourage one another in our efforts to do a little something creative each day. Only five show at a time. Just click "Show All" to see all of the blogs. Also, keep in mind that if you are leaving encouraging comments, that will ensure that you will receive some back yourself.

Another thing you can do to help you remember to check my blog often to see if I have posted or check the blog roll to see if others have posted is you can put my blog on your blog roll and/or in your reader so you'll easily see when I've posted and you don't have to try to remember on your own.
