I am hoping that Julia is feeling better then last week and that the doctors can get her in for surgery soon, my thoughts have been with her and family wishing them well.

I can not believe that it is Wednesday already, just wanted to THANK YOU to everyone whom came to my blog last week and commented, it put a smile on my face. My DH is heading back to work today and he should be home next month sometime as the job is coming to an end, time to wrap up this phase of it. He is looking forward to some time off as it has been over two years of living out of a suitcase and it will be nice to put it away for a few months besides it will be great to have him home every night to.

To what Wednesday, brings to my desk this week..... I really haven't spent a lot of time in my craft room as I wish I could of. It has a bit of this and that all over the table as I have been working on blank mini albums and finishing some up to put in the local scrapbook store to sell.

You can see right in the middle the starting of a mini album assembly line about to begin as the ones I am starting ion will be just under 6x6 envelope albums with the cards as the pull out tags. I still have to cut the chipboard, wrap the cover and make the hidden hinge for them. I love how it makes the album look when done to. To the right at the top in front of my markers is 4 vertical paper bag albums and 1 file folder album waiting for insert before I seal them up and take to the store. Oh yes and light bulbs in front of that as another one blew, I buy the reveal ones as my room is on the fourth floor and only one little window in the whole room. Beside the light bulbs is another mini album which I finish making but I think I might just keep this one for me to decorate as it is 6 pages with 3 large tags and a flap on one side that holds a two card style tags. Not a small album took about 40 pieces of card stock to make just the one. To the left is 3 more package of cards and envelopes which I will also be making into mini albums. Not sure how much I will get done as I am working 3 days and then said I would take my girls shopping on Saturday and going to surprise them with a trip to Costco after.

I also grabbed my 6x6 display album for the store I had put away and thought I might see what is left to finish on it so that customers can see what they can add to the blank set up to personalize it with flip pages, pockets and so much more. I seem to create the pages before permanently sticking them down so if I need to add brads or slit pockets I can do that without pulling it apart and giving it a much better finish look. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at what I have been up to and hoping by next Wednesday that most of what is started is finished. Have a fantastic week everyone.

Hugs Always
