More stuff before we leave to babysit!

We are driving up to Greenville today to keep baby Marc while his mama and daddy go on a business trip for a week! I am really very very excited to keep him and I am glad Papa Chaunce is taking a week off so he can be there with me because I know it will be tiring.... but oh, in a good way! We love being at their house because you can see the mountains and it's like being on vacation. Baby Marc is growing so much and toddling everywhere and starting to say a few words. All that being said, I seriously doubt that I can get any art done even during his nap time so.... farewell, my bonnie blogger buddies, I will see you after the 27th. But I might start having blogger withdrawal and have to post a photo or something. Y'all have a wonderful and creative week. I will surely be checking in to see what you are doing. I've GOT to do that!!!!

Dear Martha, how lovely that you will have a whole week with your lovely grandson - but you will be sorely missed in blogland! It always makes me smile when I see you have a new post in my Google Reader, so I guess I will just have to be patient and wait for your return. Enjoy yourself :)

Wonderful pages Martha! I love your lettering of "grace and hope." Enjoy your time with your husband and Baby Marc!!

Can't wait to hear your stories Grammie. You will have your hands full, but they will be full of love, being a grandma is the besets thing on earth!

Love, love, love your wonderful journal pages

Mary said...

Martha, your draw such lovely faces. I especially love the one in the first journal spread. What a look of peace on her face.

I am glad your husband is going too. It takes a lot to look after a toddler - it will be nice to have a break every now and again.
And for Marc to spend time with his wonderful grandparents will be a wonderful treat for him as well.

Martha, I love your poppies...How did you create them on the Faith and Hope page? It looks like tissue paper! xox

Janie Husband said...

Have fun with your grandson. My husband and I are raising our first child, who is now a toddler. It's a tiring, but FUN time. Enjoy.
