How you Bean?

How have you "bean" cyber friends? Hopefully all is well with you and your families. I myself am going through quite a lot right now, but I pray that it all passes soon. I believe in rainbows after a storm :) Just a quick card to share with you. I am hoping that I will be able to figure out a better schedule that will allow me a little more time for crafting. I think I am going to have to literally block off a certain of time per day or per week and stick to it. I sometimes let too many things get in the way of some restful peace of mind. I am, after all, a spaz by nature :) How about you? Have you been able to craft like you want to lately? Please do share! I would love to know what is going on in your lives! Do you have any fabulous sites of inspiration to share? We can never have too much of that can we? I am going to be doing some serious blog hopping in the next few days to visit you all. If I haven't stopped by in awhile, please let me know with a blog link and I will be sure to do so ASAP :) I love you peeps and all of the gorgeous things that you create!

Cute card! I wondered about you - hadn't seen you 'around' lately! I'll be sending up some special prayers that whatever is amiss in your life, rights itself quickly and that you are soon back in blogland regularly! Sometimes 'life' just has to rear its ugly head and interfere with playtime. I just don't get it. Very cute card! I've 'bean' pretty good, for an old fart!!! Hugs!

Thanks for the virtual card. Seems like lots of us have things going on right now. But we have each other in cyberspace. Please visit often.

Hi Sweetie,

I hear ya and I understand what it's like when things are just not working out the way you many want. Sometimes LIFE is Hard, but we all have to remember that just when it seems it's really not going to get almost always does! :)

I do HOPE you find some time to yourself and time to enjoy your crafts. I found I needed some down time lately and also really needed a change of pace!

I LOVE your latest card and the bow is stunning! All of your cards are wonderful and I always enjoy seeing what you create!

My very best wishes to you for a wonderful weekend and a very Happy 4th!!

Thank you for the virtual card! The other day I mentioned you to a friend, I didn't know how you did it all. You are constantly on top of all the postings as a DT member and have your cards make for the challenges. BTW your cards are awesome and always inspire me. I still remember the one with the clock and thought "how cool is this?" Your comments are always upbeat, cheerful and encouraging to us who reads them. But, sometimes we have to step back, even when we don't want to, for we think others will not like it. You need PRYN time! A time when only what you do matters. If you lose the whole reason of how you got here in the first place, it will no longer be worth it for you. You arrived here because you love to create and you do an awesome job with it. Don't lose that, hold on tight and put yourself back up at the top of the list of things to do! Love ya, deep breath and be Pryn!

"Bean" great, lol! Love your card!
I've missed you in blogland! I also haven't had as much time as I'd like to craft, things seem to be getting a bit less hectic, but life certainly gets in the way sometimes! During the school year I did set specific times aside for crafting. I only had 2 hours & 45 min. a day to myself and I promised myself I wouldn't spend that time cleaning & grocery shopping, etc everyday. It worked for me. A few mornings I stamped, the others I did the house stuff. I'm not a night owl, so "my time" has to be during the daylight. Find what works for you, prioritize & make sure you put yourself HIGH on the list!
I hope your rainbow comes soon. I'm thinking of you. Hugs!
