Settling in...

Every time I have moved in the past I always vow I'm never moving again.  I need to stop making that vow because I usually end up moving again!  I don't think I've ever stayed in one place longer than a couple of years other than the places I lived as a child.  Part of it is because I get a little restless but it's always due to some life change.  I was hoping that the next time I would move would be because I was getting married.  Alas... that is not the case!  It was still for a fabulous reason!  I decided to go back to school.  At first I wanted to get my B.A. in Human Development but I might dabble in some other artsy classes.  We'll see.  All I know is I don't want to be in school forever..

I need time to play with this little guy...

I used the butterfly stamp from Nikki Sivils and stamped on several of the patterned papers.  Then paper pieced the butterfly back together to create some dimension.  Here's a close-up:


Thanks for swinging by!  Today will be a day to chill out for me.  I am so tired.  I'm realizing I can't find a couple of things which is so typical after a move.  I can't wait to be completely finished!!

hugs,
