Back to some kind of normal

Hi Stampers & Scrappers ~
I've been MIA for a little bit and with good reason . I need to find my crafting space again. LOL I've been cleaning and organizing my space so that I can actually get some work done. It's so easy for it to get out of control and takes soooooo long to put back together once it looks like a my papers exploded all over my office.

Part of the reason for the "mass destruction" that is my office is that hubby & I have traveled quite a bit this summer. It was mostly for business, but we squeezed in a bit of fun since we usually had to travel on the weekends to get to our destination for the week day meetings hubby had. Here's a quick look at some of our stops this summer:

We started our "summer" by helping our son move.

We went on a little vacation down on the Gulf of Mexico! It was only a couple 
of days but it was wonderful!

Stopped in San Antonio.

Then to College Station TX to visit the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library.

We visited Hoover's Presidential Library.

We visited Eisenhower's Presidential Library.

We had a brief visit to Chicago.

A business conference/trade show in Las Vegas in August --- it was HOT!

Stopped for a quick tour of Mesa Verde long the way. 

And just so you don't think it was all fun ... we hit this sand storm outside Shiprock, NM.
This is the approaching storm.

This is as we were driving through the storm.

This summer we've traveled from Iowa down to the boarder of Texas - not all in one trip, thank goodness! All of this travel was from May through August.  While we have some great memories from our travels. I do feel that if I were assigned an essay "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" I would have to say ... I spent my summer vacation staring at the back of various semi-trucks! 

In between all of this we managed to visit our son at his military base a few times and we spent some time with our daughter and her family. AND I managed to get a few cards made and posted. By August it all caught up with me. So now I'm digging out. Thanks for your patience and watch for some new fun stuff to show up here on the blog soon.

Take some time to get your pinky inky today.
