Bear with girls, today's post isn't going as planned. I had a great altered box using some new Graphic 45 papers (way cool--kind of Tim Holtz-y fantasy, industrial revolution spin on them). However, here's where the snag is. My middle boy (Ben) left for college on Thursday (hence the title of this post). Hubby and youngest boy decided they needed to do the room rearranging this weekend to surprise me while I was doing groceries. Well, Rome wasn't built in a day, and it take more than a day to change around rooms. Peter is getting some of Ben's furniture and I am getting Ben's room for my new scrap~space.
My beautiful altered box, my camera, and a bunch of other items that I desperately need this week are currently somewhere in one of the piles or boxes in Ben's room (insert heavy sigh....) I can't even show you the before photo of what the room looks like right now, because my camera and cords are somewhere in that black hole. I spent a number of hours trying to organize and reorganize...and Gary says it will be a month before I am moved in. I am hoping to have it workable by the end of the weekend. Bear with me gals...you will see my Graphic 45 project really soon!
For those of you who have children going off to college or who have gone off recently--I am so happy that my boys have sprouted wings and flown away. I hope that I have taught them well, and given them the tools they need to be successful. It is their time to shine! I love them dearly, and they are still so much a part of our lives. However, it is time to move on, and I am truly blessed and one proud Mom.
