Roundup and Recap - April 2014

Hello, hello! April is coming to an end... so, I believe it's time for a little R and R. And by that, I mean...

That's right! Welcome to the end-of-month newsletter style post, here at The Mailbox.

This is the time and place where I will share what has caught my eye around the web, things I am loving, what I hope to try soon, and more...

Let's jump right in, shall we?

Wellll.... we had a pretty big month, with the addition of another little human and all.
I know, I know... many of you are wondering if you missed the big "announcement" and all. 

No, you didn't. I haven't officially announced anything here on ye ole blog. I might have mentioned something on Instagram, though:)

What can I say, this is a crafting blog and I tend to be a little funny about posting personal things unless they are piled high in a stack of pretty paper and embellishments. But, in case you are just dying to see something more concrete... I promise you will see more soon. More on that below...

I also had the pleasure of crafting up a little video for a guest spot over at shimelle.com. That went live today and I would love for you to check it out!
While I have been thoroughly enjoying my fourth little bundle of cuteness, I have let the blog do it's thing with a month's worth of pre-scheduled posts. I do hope you all have enjoyed the things that have been posted over the last month!

While most of May's posts have been pre-scheduled as well... I have been able to get back in the studio a bit and have some fun things yet to come!
When time has permitted, I have been keeping up with my favorite blogs this past month, although I must confess that my comments have been taking the back burner. 

It's funny how reading a post doesn't take much time, but commenting does! So... if I usually comment on your blog and haven't been... my apologies! Please know I am still reading and enjoying :)

I actually think that's quite common nowadays. People tend to be responding in other ways... Pinterest, Instagram, Etc...

But, I digress....
Anyhoo... I caught this post from Tammy this morning and just loved her roundup on Gelatos. Be sure to check it out!
  • Hoping to make a journal covered with fabric...
  • Wanting to take some more time to soak in inspiration...
  • Needing to catch up on some of my favorite video crafters...
  • Pondering how to put my new little We R 4x4 album to use...

This weekend is National Scrapbooking Day!!! Whoooot! Remember how I mentioned above that there would be more about baby soon? 

Well, I may just have an upcoming post on the Simon Says Stamp Blog featuring the first layouts of our little girl. I do hope you will stop by the Simon Blog on Saturday to check that out!
And... coming Friday here at The Mailbox, a mixed media canvas video!

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon!
