FALL

It has been getting very cold here for the last two days and couldn't believe I was wearing capri pants on Monday but the last 2 days I have worn my winter coat. This Friday will be flurry! Yes, flurry. 

C2BU pic
I am not ready for that at all. Are you?
I am just getting used to the leafs falling off the trees. With that said I am thinking of fall colors.
So, I threw together this quick boxes.

C2BU pic
It was easy!!! I used a 1" punch circle then stamped it with this great stamp set by 
A Creative Journey with Melissa

a crafty project.

Football

This is not a normal crafty post but more of a personal post. My son is 16 years old, 6' 2" tall, 280 pounds beefed and he is a Sophomore in High School. If I can only describe him in one word it would be HUMBLED. Something about that character that makes a human thee most respected person. 
C2BU pic

I gotta admit I am not the most pleasant person to be around when I have so much in my mind.
 I try to craft .....
C2BU pic
 and I do a lot of shopping too.

C2BU pic
Lots of shopping......
C2BU pic
Yes, who doesn't? We think that may help and it those. Temporarily. At least for me.

Then the reality HITS me and what I do best is to be a MOM to this kid....
C2BU pic
He brings the best out of me. 
When I am sick, mad, sad or depressed. 
He makes me HAPPY- exactly like his Father.

C2BU pic

On Monday my son was told that he would be playing on Varsity on October 24 but also playing with his Sophomore team. What a honor to hear this.
C2BU pic

You see Josh, my son, is NOT prideful or boastful either. He is just plain humbled. Most teenagers would go into a parent's car and start boasting about how he will be on Varsity and going to the FINALS and so forth. Right? Most teenagers would be talking about how he is better then the rest, maybe. Most teenagers when they get a $200 pair of shoes go brag about it, right? Most teenagers wear their new clothes or shoes the next day, right? That is exactly what I mean about Josh. He is none of those. He is humbled and isn't a show off. I remember the days when I would hear 'I was going to 'finals' or had new clothes. I would be bursting out of the seams to show off, lol. You? 
C2BU pic

Seeing him play and being a great example to the public figure is what we need. We need this character of humbleness to be in all kind of sports.
C2BU pic

Yes, Football is a tough and rough sport but why can't they have a attitude of just being humbled?
C2BU pic

Josh is one of the captains for his Football team. 
This is his 2nd year being captain.
C2BU pic
Wanna know how I found out last year he was a leader? At a scrimmage. One of the coaches told me while standing in line getting something to eat. 
Yes, I got teary eyed. 
C2BU pic
I have no doubt God has his hand over him. 

This is what I have prayed anyway. Praying is part of my life is epic and no way I would live a life without God. I hope all those Moms that have their kids in sports the best.
May you have a SUPER FANTASTIC DAY

Cold days

Creating is a great relaxing time for any crafter and I
 am sure everyone will agree. 

The cold is here and this morning I made sure my 16 year wore his school jacket
C2BU pic
Just a pic from internet. But close to what we got him, with his letters, numbers and name.

Although, I do drive him to school every morning because he is too tall to sit in the school bus and he feels very uncomfortable. He is 6'2" so I get it plus I drive that exact same way everyday-anyway. I had to make sure he was warm because 'YES' he still wears shorts- don't judge. LoL
C2BU pic

I was thinking about the freeze we got this morning. I did NOT like seeing that at all. As I was sitting here in my craftroom while watching Netflix Season 6 episode 7 lol I wanted to use this SUPER FANTASTIC STAMP SET BY 
A CREATIVE JOURNEY WITH MELISSA
C2BU pic

My relaxing time here

Crafting to me is calm a no brainier and just plain relaxing. No rules, no time limit and no boss to tell you how, when, where, why and etc.

With that said I grab my big bag of Copics

And sit in my room with Netflix, Criminal Minds, season 5 episode like 22 on, lol
Okay, fine my room is NOT that clean right now but its
still the same.

It has been a little while since I have made a card so I thought lets see what I can do with a circle card.

C2BU pic
