Hey, I FINALLY blogged!!!

So yesterday I decided that I would post my first official blog on blogger this morning. I finally got a new wind of energy, and have started stamping again...hooray! My oldest child, Ethan is in Kindergarten, and my baby, Evan is now in preschool while brother is in Kinder. While it only allows me about 2 hours of freedom, it's fantastic! I actually tuned in Oprah for the first time in like over a year, sat at my stamping/crafting table in our office, and stamped a cute birthday card for Ethan's wonderful Kindergarten teacher--Ms. Atkins. Happy Birthday Ms. Atkins!!! I embossed the "B" and the "is for Birthday" in SU white emboss powder. I'm really liking this set Just B by SU! It's so versatile, and I love the whole B with a Bee theme. :o)
On Monday, I used my Bigshot for the first time!!! For those who are unfamiliar, the Bigshot is Stampin' Up's! answer to a Sizzix. I love it!!! I am in the midst of making a "Happy Birthday Evan" banner for my baby Evan's 3rd Birthday. Once I'm finished with the banner (it has to be finished really soon), I will post some pics! Anyway, my kind hubby Josh helped me figure out the Bigshot machine. Let's just say if he wasn't around to help, that banner wouldn't get made! But now I have the hang of it and I have so many ideas for gifts now that I have my nifty machine.
Let me leave you today with this...don't worry, because God is here and He always takes care of us. Have faith in Him, don't conform to the ways of this world, live for Him. As my friend Angie blessed!

I love it! Yea! Shannon has a blog! Great card btw. I think that B stamp set is cute too, but never got it... And I can't wait to see your Big Shot creations. I've been playing around iwth mine, and I like it, but I hate not having a special place for it. I always have to pack it up and put it away when I 'm done with it. It totally kills my mojo!
