Show and Tell Monday!

Happy Monday everyone. This summer has just flown by. My son has one more week then he starts 1st grade, I can't believe how fast they grow. It will be nice to be in a routine again, although I will miss sleeping in so much. I had a pretty quiet weekend.. Our dear kitten Leo decided to explore the fireplace on Sunday. As you can imagine he was black with soot. Poor thing, I had to put him in the bathtub and wash him several times before he would come clean. Now he smells like lavender from my daughter's baby shampoo. I hope he learned his lesson. Ok, on to show and tell.

I had a fairly productive week. I finished up an order of 50 bottles for a wedding, and also completed my swag bag item for the MMP retreat, which will be shipped off today. I even found time to work on my site, changing around things a bit, and adding a new category I can't wait to fill this week. Somehow, I did manage to make a few new journals. Here are some pictures of them. Two are available on my site, the other one is off on a journey of its own. Now I feel free to start work on some new ideas I have floating around in my noggin. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely week!

I wish I could say that I have been that productive;) It will be nice to be able to work on some new ideas. My oldest will be in 1st grade too. I can't believe how fast time flies. I sometimes wish they would just stay babies. Wishing you a wonderful, productive week!
