High/Low - May 16th + Freebie

Yea! It's Friday! Don't you all love the weekend?

My LOW for the week is definitely that my husband is leaving tonight to go to a conference in Chicago. I won't see him for a week and it is really bumming me out. I really wish we could afford for me to go with him. It would be so nice to be together without the kids and I could totally just sit around and design in the hotel room all day. Oh well, maybe sometime we will get a chance to go away together.

My HIGH for the week is that I have got a new thing going with my kids. Every day after JJ gets home for school, we have been going on a walk together. It's about a 3-mile walk that we have been doing. And not only has this got us outside and exercising...but we have had some good talks as we have walked. I've learned some new things about my kids and I think they have enjoyed it together. It takes us about an hour and in that hour I feel like I am actually being a good mom and spending quality time with them. So it has been a very good thing.

So I have lots to do...what else is new right? LOL Working on several products - a combination of store contributions and a collaboration with one of my bestest designer friends, Georgia! And I am trying to complete the illustrations for the children's book I am working on. It is turning out better than I could have imagined and I'm very excited about it! But all of this is supposed to be done by the end of the month, so I basically have 2 weeks to finish everything! Yikes! Anyways, I better get back to work!

So I'll leave you with a little freebie. I have a Butterfly and a Doily for you that goes with my LILAC SPRING Kit! Enjoy!

Very pretty DeDe. I love them!

Sorry to hear dh is going to be gone. It is hard. Hubby and I have been together almost 18 years and he's a truckdriver and gone weeks at a time and it's still hard for me at times. I hope you and tyhe kids will be ok.

Thanks for the goodies.

Thank you very much DeDe! I like your idea of the walk with your kids. I should do that as well! 3 miles sounds like a long walk...but only takes an hour? Cool. You sure will be missed in June...but I'd rather you take off a month than get burned out!! 8-)

The butterfly and doily are beautiful as always. The walks sound like time well spent. I love getting outside and clearing my head. It is like a mini vacation for me. I hope and pray that there are no problems other than lonesomeness while you hubby is away on business.
