All that Scraps - Anything Goes!

Happy Mother's Day!  Today is my very first Mother's Day in 18 years that I am not spending it having brunch with gram and the rest of Jeremy's family.  I felt a little sad when I woke up this morning, so I called gram.  She was so cute, we chatted for a bit and then when I was hanging up I said "I love you" and she said "I love you, too, and I'm going to miss you something terrible today!"  :)  We both hung up quickly after that.  LOL  I guess it really is easier to appreciate things when they aren't there anymore.  Anyway, I called my mom, too, and she sounded like she was missing us.  That makes me sad.  I haven't really had time to miss anyone yet, but I know it's going to hit me soon.  Hard.  But I'm happy, too, so it's not like being depressed, you know?  I have just been so busy getting my house in order that I haven't had time to sit down for a second and think.  And this morning, Cass wrote a sweet Mother's Day message on my Facebook page (hey - if you can't beat 'em, join 'em), which brought tears of happiness to my eyes.  It really is the little things.  :)

Yesterday I busted my butt to get my little crafting area set up - turns out that my bedroom was big enough to have it in there.  It's also one of the sunniest rooms, so that was a clincher for me.  I need some shelves and/or bookcases, though.  I am going to hang up my pictures today and then take pics of the house, so you can hear more about (and see) my crafty area later in the week, I promise.  I know, I know, try not to let it keep you up at night waiting... ;)

So I have a card for this week's challenge at:

I love this Honey-Summer rubber stamp, and I colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, and Prismacolor markers.  I gave her some sparkly blue eye shadow, too, just because.  The middle piece slides out and can be used as a bookmark.
