When I was teaching, I use to have a poster on the wall of my classroom that showed an elephant balancing on a beach with the caption “The key to life is balance!” I’ve found this quote to hold quite a bit of truth for me as long as I also remembered that life requires me to re-evaluate all I am trying to balance on a pretty regular basis because life is constantly changing.

My biggest change recently is that Brian and I traded places. He’s home with the boys teaching them manly things like the art of spitting and the perfect head noogie. And I’ve gone back to working outside of the home. As you can imagine, this has taken some adjusting on everyone’s part. Some days I feel like a tight rope walker worthy of the circus and other days I feel like I’m sprawled on the floor where I’ve crash landed.

But we’ve been practicing for a couple of months now and I feel like we’ve regained our balance to a certain extent. I’ve begun to find more time to craft and I am looking forward to sharing with you again. I’m also putting together some classes and fun crafting get togethers. I’ll post all the details soon.

But for now, I’ll leave you with a picture of a card I made last night, using CTMH’s gorgeous Bliss paper and silver flower.

I've used this paper for a mother's day card, an engagement card, and this card. I also used it to make a picture frame for my niece when she graduated. I've loved how they have all turned out. To see the entire paper collection, click here.

Have a "Bliss"ful day!
