Summer is almost over

Happy almost FALL everyone!!!

Wow, this has been, by far, the busiest summer for me in years and years. I thought I could 'do it all' but my hubby convinced me otherwise and we had a long talk and I finally made the decision to let go of several long term commitments just to keep my stress level at bay and my commitment to myself about getting healthier this year. (More on that in another post)

I unsubbed a lot of Yahoogroups and lurked on others and I also had to quit or curtail many 'real life' commitments, including a stamp club I had formed a couple of years ago with friends. It was a very hard decision for me to make but I was confident that the gals in the club would continue to get together and stamp, they didn't need me there to spur them on. But, was a really hard decision and I miss seeing them.

Anyway, back to blogging. It is one of the fun things I love doing so hopefully I am back to doing it on a regular basis again.

I have so much to share about this summer, the activities I was able to take part in ...including WAG.

I'll leave you with a fun project I did for WAG (Western Angel Gathering). I got the original idea from my good buddy, Rita Holmes who got it from someone else...who probably got it from someone know how that goes......but, I just changed it up a bit with punches etc. I also taught it for a group of ladies at a camping rally. They had a lot of fun making them, too.

Have a fantastic day!!!
And, remember...take care of YOU first!!! Hugs, Char
