Challenge #217: Christmas in July

Welcome to another Sentimental Sunday!
Thanks so much to everyone who played along in our last challenge. 
Be sure to stop back on Wednesday and see who our random winner is and who has been chosen to be in our Top 3!

Before moving on, I would love to welcome our newest member to the Sentimental Sundays family!!  She was with us as a guest designer a few months back and we're excited to add her to the team as permanent member of the family. 

I'm living in a small village (app. 1.500 inh.) in W Slovenia, near the border with Italy. I'm a secondary school teacher of Slovene (mother tongue) and Italian (I studied both items at the University of Ljubljana). For 4 years I lived near Ljubljana, the capital city, with my ex boyfriend. I'm a single mother, and I'm lucky to have so wonderful parents to help me raising my son of 5 and half years. He's a clever little man and keeps me young.
I loved drawing since I remember. In the kindergarden I was sure to become a painter when I grow up. I spent all my free time in drawing during the school. 
When I started the university my hobbies became penpaling, volleyball and travelling. I still play volleyball once a week with a group of friends.
I re-discovered the world of crafting when I was at maternity leave. I'm very active person, so I was looking for sth. to do when my son was sleeping. At first I just looked to crafting blogs, and then I started crafting too. I had a lot of material at home ... since I remember I made Christmas cards by myself and other little presents for my family, mainly my only sister and friends. In the stores I was fascinated by crafting sections and often I bought sth. for when I'll have time - but from then my crafting materials grown a lot, as I still prefer making as much decorating items by myself. 
Nowadays I have a very hard work - teaching native language at secondary school is very impegnative. I spend a lot of afternoons correcting essays and preparing my lessons. Then I play with my child: we do long walks, work in the garden, craft different stuff (we did a volcano, a solar system etc.). But when he's sleeping, Maja - the crafter - wake up and starts crafting, sometimes over the midnight (it's a bit hard when I have to wake up at 6. a.m.). Mainly I make cards and scrapbooks and jewellery. My fave styles are CAS and recycling. But I was featured also in two shabby chic challenges - with the only two cards I even made. 

So make sure you stop by her blog and give her a big warm welcome. 
Now onto this weeks business.

Summer Break!!

Hello everyone-
Sorry this post and the winners are coming up rather tardy lately. 
I recently got married and with all the wedding responsibilities, I fell really behind on all of my crafting commitments and responsibilities.  So I really am sorry about that.  Life moves so quickly. 

The Sentimental Sundays team and I, will all be on a short 2 week Summer break.  We originally planned to be off for 1 week, but do to an accident I recently had in my backyard, I have to extended it to 2 weeks.  I fell really hard the other day on some loose gravel we have in the backboard and landed rather awkwardly.  So I have to go get checked out and see what is to be done.

I need to do some housecleaning on the blog too...We have to say goodbyes and hellos, for the second term.  It will be fun!!  We already have our sponsors lined up and we are really excited to have you come back and join us!!

We hope that you all are enjoying your Summer and we will see you back in 2 weeks. 

Big HUGS!!!

Did you have a wonderful weekend?  Did you see fireworks?
We did and it was the most impressive show we have ever seen.  The show was about 30 minutes long and we were in total amazement every moment. So  we know that the fireworks have past, but we would still love to see your red, white and blue creations.  Remember, Christmas is only 6 months away and it's never too early to start in those cards!!
