It's Been A While!

Time is rushing by right now and it seems like I'm either working on cards, working at Market Street, or getting ready for the wedding! It doesn't leave much time to be lazy! So today I'm off work and just woke up! 9:45 was a real treat for me! Barry is working all day, so I do need to get my act together and do something, but I think I'm in need of another cup of coffee!
Today's card was made using last years Riley image. You gotta love Riley in anything he does! This card was sold right away, so yesterday I made a similar one that will go in the store later today.
This week just flew by. I celebrated my 30th anniversary of my 33rd birthday! What a fun time! I got new make-up and shoes from Barry, a new Redskins blanket from Larry and family, and then Friday night Evan and Mandy took us out to dinner and I got a gift card for IHOP! I think that was a pretty wonderful birthday! After dinner we went and got $300 worth of wine for the wedding! I can't wait until we can close the check book on the wedding things! Our family will start arriving in a week and a half! I just can't wait to see the gang! We have fun things planned for everyone. No trip to Dallas would be complete without a stop in old Ft Worth and a stop at Sam Moons. Who can ever have enough junk jewelry and imported purses!
Well, have a fun day and stay safe if you're in the path of the storm!

WOW! What a Busy Week!

I can't believe it's Friday already and I still have so much to do! I was off from Tuesday until today and still didn't get everything done on my list! To tell you the truth, my list just kept getting longer each day! I did get the major things done and for that I'm so happy! New shoes for the Friday night dinner, new make-up so I look pretty, and I even got the wash done! No new cards made, but hopefully on Sunday I can work on that!
Barry is working today and I have until 1 before I have to go in, so now I'm going to try and get that shower I've been trying to get for days now! I have all this make up on from yesterday's session, so now it's time to wash it off and put my go to work face on! That means nothing on the face!
Have a good evening and enjoy the fun Thanksgiving card!

Another Week Closer!

Can you believe it's only 4 more weeks to the wedding? Where has the year gone? And I still have so much on my "to do" list to get done! Oh well, I'm sure what gets done, will get done! I haven't worked on cards all week. Instead I picked up extra hours at work this week so my paycheck would be so much nicer, but I still felt bad about not creating, so today I got down to work and made 7 new cards that I added to my store! This darling one is made using another colored image from Dreamie Dolls. I love her stuff! I had this one big green wooden button in my stash and it matched the green paper perfectly! Check out the other new one's if you get a chance.
This week is going to be a bit easier I think. Barry and I are both working on Monday, but then have several days off to get things done. Now to make a list!
Take care and thanks for checking in on me!

WOW! I can't believe a whole week has gone bye and I haven't posted! I've been that busy with work and checking things off the "to do" list for the wedding! I only had last Sunday and this Thursday off work and I tried to cram all I could in on those days! My paycheck next week will be a thing of beauty with all the hours I put in, but I'm beat! Barry left for work at 8 this morning, and I turned over and went back to sleep for another few hours! My eyes still don't want to work right, but I've got things to do and need to get a move on! My card today was made using a stamp from the 1.50 bin, you know, the ones that used to be $1! I like the way the card turned out and since the SU happy harvest was still not back in it's box, it was a perfect finish!
The wedding plans are just moving along great. It's 5 weeks from today and my list is still long, but getting better. This afternoon I'll take the ribbon for the cake over and drop it off at Evan's house. One more thing done. Instead of a book to sign at the rehearsal dinner, we bought a wedding plate at Michael's for the people to sign. It then gets baked and then they have it forever!
Well folks, take care and have a wonderful day!
