What's up?

What's up?  How are you?  How've you been?
For me, this has been another week of craziness, but I could not let go one week without at least saying  hi.  So...  Hi!

Let me tell you about my life lately.

Besides my busy life at work, I decided to take sign language classes on Saturdays!  It's been so cool... but more difficult than I thought.  Not only because learning this language is not easy, but also because it requires a lot of practice...  Unfortunately, I've felt very stressed these last couple of weeks because I don't find much time to study/practice... So that's why scrapbooking has been sacrificed a bit lately :(.  My husband says I am taking it too seriously and I have to relax because this is supposed to be for recreation... The sign language interest is kind of a bucket list thing.  It's something I've always been attracted to, so has my husband, and we found the right moment now... so we are doing it just for fun... and hopefully is something we could use to help others in the future.  The basic course is for 6 weeks so I will be pushing myself to balance some time for everything... because I need to, or I will lose my mind... LOL 

Another thing I wanted to share is that we had our first Scrapbooking Convention in Puerto Rico last Sunday.  We have had another huge yearly activity that one store sponsors and Scrapbooking celebrities provide classes and so, but this one was sponsored by a local magazine and grouped all the local Scrapbooking stores in one and only event.  I have to say I really had fun.  It was a great activity and very good for the hobby industry since we got to know stores we don't usually visit.  Exposure was good. Kuddos to "Papeles y Más" magazine.


Finally, a card to share.  I combined patterned paper, stamps, borders, ink and love... LOL




For the flowers stamp (Unity) I used ink but also some paper piecing in the wood fence.  Hope you can appreciate it in the photo and hope you like it.


Tell me about your week... or about something new you've been involved with or doing lately.

Tks for stopping by.

my husband learned sign language to communicate with a co-worker years ago, then my older son found his book & taught himself a lot of it... very impressive for everyone who will do it!

Love your bright, cheerful card, Myra, and your post full of news. Good for you, learning sign language to someday help others. I think it is such a beautiful language. Is it American Sign you are learning? Just curious. We have a resident in our nursing home who is deaf. He can no longer communicate, but his deaf wife can. I try to learn sign from her. Fortunately, she is very patient with me. I learn a new word or phrase from her a couple times a week, then we practice the old ones.
