I finished my Christmas tag swap and I love them! I hope the girls in the swap like them too!! I had a lot of fun designing these!
We're having the perfect dinner for this cold day. I'm trying a lentil and sausage stew in the slow cooker. I hope it tastes as good as it smells! I'll let you know tomorrow.
- Voted via absentee over the weekend!
- Had a good interview last week. Yah!
- Attended Mass for the first time in a while on Saturday. I can't tell you how good it felt to be there. Listening to the sermon, I remembered how important Mass once meant to me and I realized how important it still is.
- Took a wonderful ATC class with Debby Schuh at Picture Me Perfect. I had an awesome time AND the project is just gorgeous!!! I'll post a pic after I finish punching the cards!!
- Picked up my new glasses and I absolutely LOVE them!!
So excited for the new week! I'm looking forward to this Friday when J and I are going to spend all day together. I'm not sure exactly what we're doing, but we're definitely having Indian food at some point. Yum!
I also finished the images for the Stamped Image swap at SISTv. Here's a little sneak.
And it's going to another scrappy weekend for me. Debby Schuh is teaching a couple classes at Picture Me Perfect and will also be at a crop on Friday night. And I'm going to be there. The class I'm taking is just adorable!
Seriously, the economy is getting more worrisome by the day. While Jay and I have tried to cut back on some things, like carpooling to work (to save on toll), packing lunches, buying only what's on sale unless we really need it, we haven't really bit the bullet and done more. I'll admit that I have a bad scrap supply habit. I could totally do some cutting in that area. Right now I only have one monthly kit subscription, but I go to my lss weekly and almost always buy something (blushing). I'm trying think of other ways to cut back. What are you doing to help yourself during this economic crisis!
If you haven't already done so, PLEASE REGISTER TO VOTE! This is an important election! Exercise your right!
The other day I came across a new sketch blog called Inspired Blueprints. It looks pretty cool. Here's the first sketch. I haven't had a chance to play yet, but as soon as I do, I'll definitely post it. Check it out!
In other news, I'm trying to find balance in life. I'm finding that scrapping and reading time are so often sacrificed for TV time. Need to change that immediately! That and getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
I'm so excited because local meteorologists are forecasting rain for tonight through tomorrow. Yay! Can I just say that I love a rainy day!! It's the best excuse to scrap or curl up with a book, a warm and cozy blanket, and a cup of hot chocolate. Love, love, LOVE! Fall if definitely here!
