Sorry for things being quiet here on the blog front, I can tell you it’s not quiet in real life here, he he! Starting the crazy buildup to Christmas, sigh… I guess I’d better check that all my Christmas shopping is done, I’ve done bits here and there but am bound to have forgotten something. I hate fighting the crowds at Christmas time.
Anyway, thanks so much to those of you who came to my launch party on Saturday, I had fun and hope that you did too! As per usual I totally forgot to take any snapshots when anyone was here, but I did take a picture of my very large dining table after everyone had gone…. Yikes! The photo is only showing you about 2/3 of the table, and there was another table covered in stuff that I had to pack away too! Of course, I was responsible for quite a bit of the mess since I got more things out to show Laurie when we sat and chatted together at the end, I am really bad at getting more things out and not putting away the things I was using before. Anyway, it did take me quite a while to get everything put back in it’s rightful place. My craft room is still a mess though, I think that’s basically par for the course since I do my design work in there and when the creative spark hits, I just go with it!
I did finally manage to finish off the card that I’ve on my craft table for weeks – this started out as one that my team leader Jacque designed, but I changed the greeting on it and used the new Sweetness Unlimited stamp from the Summer Mini – isn’t that just a cute saying? And only $13.95 (+shipping) too! The whale is from Animal Stories, also in the Summer Mini, and the Polka Dot background stamp is in the main catalogue. If you’d like to get your hands on these fabulous stamp sets, e-mail me and we can get that sorted for you pronto!
Another thing I really like about this card is that it means I’m all set now for when my brother’s first child is born – they just found out they’re having a baby boy so yahoo I have a new little nephew on the way! (Hopefully my brother’s not reading this!)
Oh, and I nearly forgot – congratulations to Mandy who is the lucky winner of my Cookies in a Jar prize from Saturday, yay Mandy! I’ll get that to you soon!
