I was away from the computer all day today so I am tardy posting the Sketch challenge?

Did anyone have a chance to play?

We haven't had a question in awhile.

Approximately How much time to do you spend in your art space during the week?

I spent time over the last couple of days creating Teapot Challenge cards, using the Bingo one, this week's sketch with last week's Teapot Challenge. Some weeks are better than others for spending in my craft room. I think the Teapot Challenges motivated me to participate in as these cards will be mailed quickly and not left sitting in my room.

Answering your question, ideally a couple of hours most days. But it's also my computer space, so it can be longer but not necessarily creating; theres always some commenting to be done, and stuff like prepping challenges and so on. I used to have the time and energy to make a card every day, but as work has got busier, and during my dad's last couple of years, that's no longer the case. It started out as my creative therapy when my mother died and I was finding it very hard to play the piano.
DH jokes that I live upstairs and he lives downstairs, but really that's not true.

Aww! Sabrina, I am glad you are still able to get in your craft room even if it's not a card a day. Your cards are gorgeous. I have my space on the first floor so that I am right here where all the action is! When we first moved in it was a dining room, then it was a guest room, for a short time when our son was really struggling I moved the kids down here to sleep (he went to sleep quickly and soundly for the first time in his little life and I wondered why I hadn't thought of it earlier!!) and NOW it's my art space!

A large flower in fall colours sounds good. I'd like a rose in rich reds and oranges. I think my biggest floral stamp is a rose, followed by sunflowers. But yesterday and today are full-on 5 hour mornings in work, and the rest of yesterday went in showing Flat Stanley the local highlights, so there are a few chores lines up for today.

How interesting that it made such a difference to your son's sleep when you moved him downstairs. Feeling less isolated?? My recurring bronchitis that took me out of school for a couple of weeks each year disappeared for about 35 years after I moved to a downstairs bedroom...it was much drier, with the kitchen range on one side and the living room fireplace on the other.

Sabrina, your large flowers sound beautiful! We will just have to imagine your card!

Yes. Poor baby. He had SO MANY issues. My DH worked nights so I was on my own and it was so exhausting. He would cry and cry. He wanted to hold my hand until he fell asleep and I just couldn't stand there all night. I was amazed at the difference when I moved him down here. I think just knowing that I was near made the difference but also Elisabeth was in the room with him. Sometimes I am in awe with all we went through, he is now a senior in college and thinking of pursuing his Masters!

Alrighty, the CAS is up and it's all about FALL so I want to know, has Fall reached you yet?

NOPE. We are about 15 degrees hotter than normal for this time of year. We have been in the high 90's for several weeks now. Gasp!

For all of you stencil lovers the TLC760 has a challenge for that! I hope to to try it!!!

Do you have a favorite stencil? Link us to a card that you have recently uploaded featuring a stencil.

I am not sure I have a favorite yet but I am enjoying using stencils! Here is my most recent upload with a stencil and I can see this one becoming a favorite. Christmas Cheer
