A little history. My sister, Alison, lives 6 1/2 hours away. She is my paper crafting partner and she has the best craft store near her. Several times a year, I make the drive to attend wonderful classes at her store or to do marathon shopping with her. We both work full time, so sometimes these trips are rather quick and jammed full of activities and half finished conversations. Many times we say we need a visit where we just sit around the craft table and play with our own stuff. This visit is just such a one.
Alison is here. She came Wed. evening and will leave Saturday afternoon. We are devoting large chunks of our time to finishing a few projects and trying out some of the new products that we bought when I visited her in May and June. Exclusive sister time.
My husband is very ameniable to this plan and occasionally feeds us. I am not worrying about laundry, work, dust bunnies floating down the hall or what my hair looks like- I am just enjoying her company. The longer I live, the more I know that memories are built out of these times and I don't want to miss a minute.
So, I m off to grab a toasted bagel and go make a card and a memory or two. Hope you enjoy your day. Thanks for stoppin' by.
