A Mommy Again

Well, almost ... I'm almost a Mommy again.  Oh Lord, no, I'm not pregnant (phew!) ROFL - remember my last blog post where I mentioned the birds building a nest in my hanging geranium plant?  Well, I took a little sneak peek into the planter this weekend, and this is what I found:

I'm going to have baby birds!  Aaaaawwww.  Still have no idea how long it will take for them to hatch, so I'll just have to check every once in a while - would love to get a picture of the new birdies.

Speaking of Mom's, did everyone have a great Mother's Day (either for them, or for their Mom)?  My boys took me out to lunch on Saturday (beating the Sunday rush), which was nice. Of course, it was supposed to be DH and me, alone ... but DS insisted on coming and even paying for everything! He'll learn ... LOL  Sunday, itself, was full of the usual household chores ... bleh.  But then the guys left me to my own devices to craft away. Actually pulled out a tapestry canvas for a while; made a nice change.  Got a few scrapbook pages finished for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, where I'm a staff member on the digital team.  Oh, wanna see a sneak peek of what's coming up in the May issue from me?  Here you go:

And for your viewing pleasure, a few pages from the challenges at Design House Digital (we have 4-6 going every month - and all are eligible for a gift certificate at the end of the month).  There's six challenges this month - and I'm on a mission to complete them all!

The first page is for a scraplift challenge, and the second is for a photography challenge. The scraplift pages uses pieces of Audrey Neal's Just My Type kit; the Sunshine page uses a freebie from Kate Teague.  The photography one was fun - lens flare. This is something I usually try to AVOID in my photographs, so it was kinda cool to figure out how to show it, deliberately! LOL
