Where do you get inspiration?  Sometimes it somes to me in the most unusual places…this time it was Eva’s room!

View the video to see how I was inspired.  I’ve made three different cards with this one stamp set.  What ideas do YOU have?

Speaking of hanging out in Eva’s bed…she is the only Pooler girl left that really “let’s” us snuggle much…the other two are just too big for that.  Ya know?  I love some of the self-sufficiency that comes with the older girls, but there is plenty that I miss about 5 year old Anna and 5 year old Alana.

I find myself hugging harder and longer when I get the opportunity these days.  Three weeks from today we will have a Middle Schooler and a High Schooler – boy…I remember the day Anna started Middle School.  I pretty much cried all day.  You can read that blog post here.

I wonder what August 25th will look like.  Will I cry more since there are TWO embarking on new journeys?
