Do you ever get the feeling....

Do you ever get the feeling that someone is stealing hours from your day?  That's very much how things have been here at the moment.  There never seems to be enough time. Here is a little taste of what I've been up to...
* I've written a 2,500 word essay (the last time I wrote an academic paper was over 20 years ) that seriously had me questioning my intellect
* I am on on placement working with students who have Autism once a week.
* Have been down to Uni days in Melbourne for study
* I am working three days a week teaching
and not to mention the most important of all those jobs, juggling a home, husband and cherubs, while also finding time to catch up with family and friends.
No wonder time is disappearing..hehe.
All in all though, as busy as life is, I am absolutely loving every minute of it :)
I have even found some little snippets of time to scrap.  Nowhere near as much as I used to, but here are some things I can share and some sneak peaks of some projects I can't ....
 I used some of my Little Yellow Bicycle left overs to create this set of cards.  I'm "trying" to use up all of my scraps in an effort to cut down on the amount of paper I hoard.  I'll let you know how I go with that  And while I am certainly not the most skilled at Copic colouring, I really do enjoy it.

Here are some sneak peaks of some magazine projects I've been working on ...

In the past little bit, I've complete 2 sets of cards, 3 layouts, 2 articles and 3 off the page projects.
The commissions have been fantastic as they give me a reason to scrap, which I think I otherwise probably wouldn't do.
Well, I hope wherever you are your life is traveling along beautifully because at the moment, in spite of the hectic pace, things here could not be any better.
Take care xx
