Oooh Veronica, that Green Tea frapps looks very nice and refreshing.My days consist of getting the kids to school, and myself too as I work there three days a week.Then come home and clean, organise my boys with homowork, dinner etc.Then at night, I have ME time....ahhhh bliss.I watch a bit of telly, computer, read mags and scrap if I feel like it.



Lately, the weather has been so good to us. It feels like spring. Very much flip-flop weather. In fact, Ethan and I make sure to hang outdoors more. That explains my absence here. Our days consist of park time:
(The sketch for this LO came from a magazine, not sure which one, BFF had it at last night's crop).
Sipping on green tea fraps: Reading my favorite magazines:
and late at night, designing more tags for our shop:

Which leads me to a wonderful giveaway. We have 4 new sets coming to our store this weekend. Nothing fancy....I actually made them myself. I was in need of some for my upcoming classes.

Giveaway*** Just leave me a comment, I would love to hear what your days consist of!? Winner gets 2 sets of our new tags (the ones above and month tags). Oh, and one last thing, if you are on Twitter, come and follow us.

Must go crash some cars with Ethan....

xoxo, Veronica

Monday through Friday - I get up at 5 a.m. and check my email and mentally prepare myself for teaching my seventh graders. I wake up DD and we get ready and we're off to school!

renee said...

my fun days consist of waking up and cleaning a little bit, working on pages or cards, then i get to go to work at pocketful of treasures! best job ever!

Amanda Ann said...

I think the ew tags are super cute!

Katie_S said...

Lovely new tags! My weekdays currently consist of work and sleep (with maybe a little tv thrown in) but I have big plans for tomorrow which should consist of a craft class, housework, date night and wedding planning!

Heath said...

My day consists of whatever life throws my way, but it usually consists of these things: get up, take dd to school, volunteer there for a couple of hours, get a little work in from home, chauffeur to extracurricular activites, homework for dd, cook dinner, clean up, homework for me, and then squeeze in some 'me' time (computer time, craft time, tv time)

Reading that makes me know that I need more 'me' time!! lol

Diva Loca said...

my Monday to Fridays are work work and more work!

Weekends are spent with the hubby doing whatever.

This weekend I'm off to a scrappin retreat with Vicki Boutin though so I think this weekend will ROCK!!!

Amy said...

my days are filled to the brim, taking care of my four boys and dh, volunteering at school, working my part-time business and checking out my fav blogs like yours!

Jenny Tan said...

The tags are cute!
Gosh, if it's base on the past 2 weeks...I must say that besides all the regular wake up, getting kids ready for school and cooking --- I must admit I have NOT done ANY cleaning around the house!! I've been REALLY BAD for I have been in "la-la land" in Forks, WA with "Edward and Bella" --- reading the Twilight series (I know, I am kinda "slow"...that it took me so long to discover SUCH AN AWESOME BOOK!)--- I did do laundry though..but w/out folding them/putting 'em away...just pick whatever you need from the basket! ;P

Beth Perry said...

Hey baby!! Well, I am glad you are having fun and enjoying this gorgeous weather. It has been 60 here and the days are already getting longer. I love it.
Tonight, we had the sliding glass door open and it was raining down hard. It felt like spring. it is awesome.
I just got to play with your amazing and always beautiful tags, so please leave my name out of "the hat".
You know I love you...like really, stalking-love you! hahaha
;P
B {not that there is anything wrong with that}

Cass said...

Love the new tags! My day consists of caring for my hubby, our 2 beautiful children, and trying to keep the house tidy!

Bona said...

Busy, Busy, Busy! My four girls and hubby keep me on my toes. M-F drop off the 2 older ones to school, go home clean, do laundry, do dishes my girls pile up, have lunch and get ready to take my 5 yr. old to school. Drop her off, go groceries, errands, go home, take the dog for a walk then back inside and check email and try to squeeze some crafting time for me. heehee. Get ready to pick up the three girls (BTW, it never fails, Ashley takes a nap and I feel to bad that I end up carrying her cause I don't want to wake her up). Go home, get dinner ready and help girls with homework then continue my laundry and other cleaning. Give the younger ones a bath. Try to squeeze more crafting time for me while the kids play a little before bed time and then finally get ready for bed. I have to admit, once their all asleep, I craft AGAIN. By the time I'm done, it's 1 0r 2 am. I know, I'm nuts. It's all about serious multi tasking. I enjoy it because, I love my family.

Beth Perry said...

Hey girl! I should have told you...but, all went well. (I am hoping for the same thing tomorrow. lol)

But, I am trying so hard to get on this design team. I wish they took referral letters...ahhaha I would SO MAKE YOU WRITE ME ONE!! LOL

Peace, sista! I will be home all day the next three days..so holla!

Amber said...

Let's see!! My days start by getting Maddie up and off to school, eating breakfast with Saylor on the couch. Cleaning, laundry, hanging out with Saylor. Lunch {I go out to eat a lot! EEk!} Then I usually relax & read blogs and/or blog while Saylor is asleep. Then pick up Maddie, homework, dinner, hang out with the fam!

Saylor & I have been outside alot lately too, b/c well, our weather is the exact same as yours!

P.S.--Are you mad at me for not going last night!? "I can esplain!"

Margaret Anne Clark said...

Mon to Thurs - teach 10-11 yr old (LOVE my job!!)
Fri is family day - the only day DH and I typically have off together to share with our 2 1/2 yr old cherub ( we split childcare between us !)
Weekend - variable, but usually with friends or family, some baking and church!!
It's all very routine, but it works and makes me happy (wish Fridays were longer tho !!!)

thereddeer said...

My day consists of looking after my daughter Zoe, baking, cooking, cleaning and studying teaching.

Emily said...

Lately my days consist of taking care of nineteen 5 and 6 year olds~ teaching them to read, and sing, to play and learn & teaching two of them to speak English. I spend my long but exciting days teaching them to choose words instead of fists, to choose books instead of TV, to choose art instead of despair. Lately I have been pining away for Spring, for warm weather so that we can learn all of these things outside, so that I can teach these things in sundresses and flip flops instead of corduroys and boots.

Alecia Castro said...

Sounds like a nice day for sure!! My days consist of work, home duties and then any scrap time that I can fit in with the rest of the time.

Jennifer said...

love the new tags!! My days lately consist mostly of home duties, cleaning, dishes, kids, laundry...all that fun stuff that makes everyday mundane and yet so special :)

stephanie said...

my days either consist of 12 hour shifts at work or on off days, catching up on washing, reading, scrappping and starbucks!!

Jo said...

Up at 7, kids to school, off to work, home to make dinner, help with homework, family time, bed. On good days I spend some time in my scraproom.

Angela W said...

I am loving your new tags! During the week, my days consist of coming to work, going home, cooking dinner, playing with the boys, then to bed. On the weekends right now it is pretty much just whatever! I like that much more than being at work! LOL!

Nathalie said...

Ah, the car crashing days... they're not too far in the past for me... been replaced by the "let's play Wii tennis!" :)
I work part time at a school and the rest of the time I take care of my kids and my home, oh and I surf the net and create things once in a while! :P

Nancy said...

I have to work everyday practically all day. We have a business and very tough times. Love checking out your blog! Thanks have a great weekend!

Rebecca said...

My days consist of volunteering at my dd's schools. Cleaning, laundry, exercise and more laundy! Hopefully sneaking in some creative time here and there too. :)

The Anderson Family said...

Usually my days can be reduced to the constant sound of me yelling, "Josiah, get out of the trash!" (He's 18 months and into everything that he knows he shouldn't be.) Thanks for the giveaway!

deana said...

MOST days consist of working-out, running errands, house-work & crafting before I pick my daughter up from school. My favorite days consist of shopping + lunch after my work-out though! :-)

BabeCaddy said...

My days are pretty much the same, cleaning, laundry and the scrappin...

jessica said...

Monday - Friday I am a 1st/2nd grade teacher so everyday is different. I race home to cook dinner, then I relax in the evenings (about 5 or 6) and catch up on all my e-mails.

Karen said...

This is my first year of retirement so every day is a bit different after 37 years of teaching. Today I subbed for a friend in her special education kindergarten. Yesterday, I volunteered in her classroom, worked out at the gym, and saw Jersey Boys. I LOVE retirement!

Lisa said...

dude i wore poor little phinn out today! he slept the whole way home from your house and was even drowsy when i got him out of the car seat! lol thats never happened, he usually snaps awake and ready to play some more!

i'm so happy you got your pouch done and i'm excited to see you again monmday! woot woot!

Mel said...

I run...get up at 6:45, scramble to get myself and the kiddos ready..grab a cup of coffee and rush out the door to work (usually late). Work all day (ick) then go pick up the kiddos, come home and cook dinner and then make sure the homework is all done...finally, the day is almost mine to enjoy. Once we get the kiddos to bed, I have sometime for myself (at least sometime!)

Whitehills said...

I stay with a lady everyday who is the same age as me and has parkinson's she is in a wheelchair some day's are good some are a little slower. We have some funny day's and we have some day's when we shed a few tears for the life she used to have and the one she should still be having. Sad

Sara said...

Yesterday was a mad but fun day, but 8am I had made Macaroni cheese for dinner, then off to take my two children to school - it was fitness Friday, so Henry aged 7 did Huff & Puff in the playground first then I went to watch Evie aged 3 do hers with the pre-school, then back to see Henry do a sponsered skip, dash home, made brownies, back to school to collect Evie, back home for lunch and a quick house clean back to school to collect Henry and some of his friends who got collected at 7pm, children to bed, I was asleep on the sofa at 8pm - phew !

JHalmes said...

If you MUST know- my days consist of corraling a super hyper 3 year old out of my scrapbook supply room because he always wants to "make sumthing". I am so glad he is crafty.
Love the tags- and your reading material looks like mine. (not sure about the green "frap" though ;-)

BHS Football 2008 said...

You should pick Renee. She knows how to make her boss happy!

Debbie said...

Kirsten said...

"Days" off would be nice. Typically, I get one day off...Sunday. And because I work Monday through Saturday, Sunday's are typically spent first with breakfast with the family (our entire extended family on my side...every Sunday), then a trip to Target, the grocery store & whatever other errands were put off for the week. This puts me home around 4, when I read a magazine or watch a movie or just veg out.

I'd love to try out your lovely tags!

Samantha said...

My week consists of working 8-5 (but most of the time later) and hopefully finding time between working, commuting, and getting enough sleep to do some scrapbooking! (Or, I just sacrifice the sleeping part of my day so I can scrapbook more!) :-)

Kirsten N said...

Getting my 3 children off to school all week, and myself off to work 3 of those days too - I love having lazy weekends to catch up with family and friends, and a bit of scrapping :)

Ginny said...

My girls are in school & it is still super cold. My days are getting my girls ready for school, going to dance & helping with homework. I am so ready for days of the park & summer!

Anonymous said...

My days are kinda crazy with getting the kiddies off to school, work, going to school myself and pick up, homework, housework, husband...yadda, yadda, yadda. I guess the list could go on and on. I am sure the other moms and wives feel the same. Love the tags! Thanks for the chance to win!

Monday - Friday I get up at 6 am and head off to my SUPER boring technical job. On the weekends I sleep in and hope for some time to scrap :)

Isabelle said...

these days my days off consist of visiting my dad in the hospital and catching up on some house work, when i have a chance i try to squeeze in some scrap time (but it not as much i would like it to be!)

Love all the little things you design!
