Has it really been one week since my last post? What a slacker I am! I know I’ve been absent more than present on the blog lately and I’m doing my best to turn that around. I’ve been telling you abou the favors I’ve been making. The favors that have started consuming every second of my time. It’s crazy!, amazing and exhausting at the same time! But truly miss my blog! I miss painting. I miss sewing. I miss decorating. I even miss cooking! But what I miss most is writing, reading and communicating! I’ve said it many times before that my husband had to twist my arm to get me to start this blog. I didn’t even know much about what a blog was when I created Scissors & Spatulas. I just knew that I liked being creative and doing things on my own and that maybe someone would enjoy reading about those things. Well, I had no idea!
I know I haven’t been around much lately and I definitely haven’t been doing much besides designing, cutting and assembling favor boxes. We recently launched a newer shop, known as the Ready to Pop Shop.
No matter how hard I try to squeeze a project in, I just can’t get to it. I It’s not that I don’t have the ideas. Trust me, the ideas are still flowing! Every time I go to one of the craft stores I find something that gives me an idea for a project that I “just have to do.” But do I reason with inner creative being? Do I remind myself how busy I am and won’t be able to find the time to do such a project? Of course not! I buy all the supplies I need. So I have a craft room full of supplies to fulfill a mind full of creative ideas that just can’t be completed!
My blog is my outlet and so once again I’m venting. SNAP opened my eyes up and really reminded me how much I missed being in the “Blogosphere.” Not only writing on my own blog, but visiting others. Chatting with friends online and just keeping up with what everyone was doing. Sigh. . . okay, that’s all. Thanks for “listening.” I’m sure tutorials are much more fun to read.
On a more positive note, we went to the beach with some friends this past weekend. The boys had a blast and it was so nice to sit with my feet in the sand and not a care in the world! Here are a few pics.
Daddy and the boys.
Little Man #1 (Jack)

Dinner and dancing. Love beach life!
PR finally got over his fear of the water on day 2.
Having fun playing in the waves!
A night a Pavilion. The kids had a blast!
What a great weekend! So much fun!
I’ll be back, eventually. I wish I could say it would be soon, but that’s a promise I’m not positive I can keep. Hang tight! I miss y’all!
