Maybe You Didn't Know

that I love to curl (as in the sport on ice). I have been curling since I was 12 or 13. I curled all through high school and into University. Our team in University made it to the provincial championship. After school I curled competitively in town and played 4 nights a week. I love it. Since having kids and during the time I was pregnant I didn't play and missed it lots. I didn't have quite enough time to fit it in but now that Mer is at school I am able to play Thursday mornings and And and I play in a mixed league on Friday nights. Today during our less than stellar performance, I realized how much I missed playing with the ladies and playing for me. I love that I am reconnecting with stuff that is important to me and allowing myself the time to be able to do it (minus guilt). Of course there are many tasks that could be done during this time but this one is for me.

I am just finishing up a major consigned project for someone. It has been a lot of work. It has been the biggest project that I have done for someone. I am happy with it. She is picking it up tomorrow. I hope she likes it. Of course I am struggling with the value issue! Andy says get over and charge what you need to charge. Now onto the other 4 projects that people have asked me to do.

I received some happy news today when I opened my email. One of my layouts is going to be published in the Spring Issue of the Canadian Scrapbooking Magazine I am so excited. I have been submitting layouts for a couple of years now and this is the first one to get picked up. Yeah for me!
