Where does the time go?

I can't believe that it's been almost a month since I last posted- it has been a crazy time between work, tennis and trying to squeeze in some stamping. Here's a quick update and I will try to post something at least once a week!!

First, VC rocks is back in full force- you still have a few days to sign up for this incredible Virtual Convention of all things Stampin' Up. Join the hotel and meet a new stamping friend, sign up for one of many swaps and just enjoy the camaraderie of virtual stamping friends. To join in the fun, just look for the vcrocks yahoogroup!

To give you an idea of some of the swaps, here's what I have signed up for so far- if I get my swaps done before Tuesday, I'm signing up for more. Swap deadline to join is June 8 and all swaps are due July 8.

My swaps:

One Sheet Wonder (stamp backgrounds on a sheet of 8.x5 x 11 cs and then use a template to create up to 10 cards)

ATC Background swap (these adorable trading cards make great add-ons to your projects. They are 3.5 x 2.5"

Inchie swap- I've never done one of these before- all swap items must be 1 inch square

Ebony and Ivory Cards- all cards can only be made with black and white

Chritmas cards - need I say more

Card Candy- great mini add-on's for scrapbooks, cards, etc.

On Your Mark- bookmark swap

In other news- my dad's gangrene has completely healed- the experimental treatment's effectiveness has even amazed his doctor's -- it's so wonderful to see my dad back to his happy, playful self.

Work has been busy with a major software conversion for all of our online classes. And finally, I've been busy with Tennis boy- working to get his game better and his ranking higher.
