It seems that's what I'm doing. Waiting for some consistently nice weather (had another Nor'Easter blow through this weekend) Waiting for the spring soccer seasons to start; the previously mentioned weather has really had an effect on the fields. Waiting/looking forward to the Major League Baseball season to start. Waiting for this to arrive from Coordinates Collections...

This is the April "Showers" kit from Coordinates Collections. Fun new stuff from Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, and Fancy Pants to name a few. You can see previews of both kits and the addons here.

So since I'm waiting on this and a bunch of other stuff; I finished the book I was reading. It was quite good. "True Colors" by Kristin Hannah it was a story of three sisters on a horse ranch in Washington State. The same author wrote "Firefly Lane" which I'm going to dig into's been recommended by several coworkers.

When the book was complete (approx. midnight Friday night) I went back to scrapping. A few weekends ago I picked up some materials from Nora to do some projects for Paperwings. The papers in the kit were from the new Bella Blvd. line..."Estate Sale". Here's what I did:

From my stash I added some Thickers, a Prima crystal swirl, and a pink journaling spot. See that sheer ribbon sticking out from under the pink flower? It's a piece of that fabulous new trim they have in the store from Webster's Pages.

To the Bella papers I added some Thickers, some number sprouts from Jillibean Soup, and a Bazzill Just the Edge. The JTE started out "french vanilla" but I inked it with some "broken china" Distress Ink. The "bouncing" line for the "ball" was handstitched with brown floss.

So that's what I did this rainy weekend...hopefully somewhere the sun was shining!
