Hugs & Kisses

We’re gearing up for a visit from grandparents today in our house.  DH’s parents will arrive sometime this evening and stay through the weekend!  They always bring love and lots of fun to wear out the kids (…and the kids will wear them out)!

I’ve been going through my stash of crafty things, purging and reorganizing.  This has been a rather slow process this summer, but I’m doing a little every week and things are starting to come together in the new craft room.  I’m amazed at how my style has changed over the years and I have quite a pile of things to donate or sell.  Feels so good to be taking an honest look at things and I’m discovering new inspiration in the middle of it all!  I’m looking forward to using all the newfound goodies as autumn nears and my days slow a little (at least, I hope they do…).

I made a card using one of my forgotten stamp sets with grandparents in mind.

This is a sets from Ms. Kimm Creates.  I love her stamp sets (& need to add a few of the newer ones to my updated stash)!  The images & fonts fit my simple style so well!  This particular set is called Death by Chocolate.  I framed the images and sentiment using Lil’ Inker’s Dual Dotted Squares Dies, a recent favorite of mine.

I typically spend more time with my camera than with my stamps in the summer months, so I’ll share an update of the kids.  Hope you don’t mind!  While I miss regular stamping and blogging in the warmer months, I don’t want to miss the joys of childhood that these four create!
