crazy may(zy)

The month of May has been super busy. I rank it the second busiest month, right behind December. Does anyone else find the month of May to be hectic?! It seems as if plans seem to keep getting scheduled into the month of May. Ack! …but that’s life. You just have to keep treading forward.

I mentioned in my previous post that I ended up going to visit my mom on her special day.

When I grow up, I want to be as pretty as my mom, hehe!

"Yes, I got a haircut. You can actually see my face now."

We BBQ'd and ate outside in the patio for Mother's Day.

Grilled chicken and Korean BBQ! πŸ™‚

Maui likes to cuddle up with Grandma.

Thanks to the perfect weather this past weekend, we spent a lot of time enjoying the newly remodeled patio at my parents’ house. After spending time with my family, we drove to spend time with Gloria’s mom. Lunch and dinner with her family was delicious. To make things even better, Gloria’s sister brought her two dogs. Maui and Hilo had such a marvelous time playing in the backyard with them.

Overall, it was a great weekend with family. πŸ™‚

I didn’t get a chance to create anything at all this past weekend because of all the family time. However, I did want to share the project that I created for the mini workshop that I taught at ScrapFest last month.

Guess how I binded this one?! If you said the bind-it-all, then you guessed correctly! πŸ™‚

This mini album was created using all Kiki Art paper. I especially LOVE the paper to the front cover. It’s part of the Jardin collection! To give the tree some dimension, I added some red dew drops by The Robin’s Nest. If you want more information on this mini album, feel free to head on over to my gallery on the Zutter website.

Hope this week, I mean month, isn’t too crazy!

  12. Oh my goodness — May IS insane. I just never stopped to realize it. LOL I hope your calms down a bit.

  13. Yeah…. it’s just as busy as December… especially with a school-age child. Let’s just say that today was the first time since Bryn has been in school (like since she was 3 & in preschool) that I actually forgot it was my day to volunteer at school. Thankfully, her teacher forgot, too, & wasn’t at school today b/c she had to attend a funeral. I saw her at a school event tonight. She apologized to me for forgetting to tell me not to come in today & I was apologizing to her for forgetting! Evidently we’ve BOTH lost our minds! Thank goodness! I felt awful! LOL!

    Cute photos & cute mini, too! πŸ™‚

    {{hugs}} Michelle
