Hello…already January 4rd, and Saturday AND only two more days before returning to work! Time travels quickly…
Apparently, along with the flu season we’re being cautioned about (icky scary - I"m feeling a wee tinge off-colour today), ‘tis also the season for computer weirdness. I discovered late yesterday, that I could receive emails, but not send any. Today, same situation, with the added ‘delightful discovery’ that despite embarking on a many-hours journey through blog land, to leave comments at all the dazzling creations I found, only a portion stuck! So, if you haven’t heard from me (Shannon: I LOVE your cards, and Greta, too, and so many more), my apologies! Well-intended, but kiboshed by technology glitches….gahhh!! The internet guys ‘think’ it may be fixed tomorrow….we shall see! Seriously crazy-making! At one point, in an effort to ‘breathe and be calm’ I *had* to alphabetize my paper pads – again – and ditch the little scraps that I’ve been keeping for reasons unknown. I know I’m frugal, but truthfully, the sizes of some of those papers wouldn’t even make a confetti! Yeesh….Yep, the internet/computer aren’t the only ‘weird’ things in our house…
So, pressing on my mind, and because I can’t send notes: are all my Eastern Canada and US friends okay? Are you safe? Geri, Barb, Tracey, Ardyth, Lesley, Bev – and everyone else in the ‘eyes of the storms’ - know that I’m thinking of you, hoping that you’re tucked cozily inside your homes, toasty warm, and not having to venture out until temperatures and road conditions improve. We’re heading into a deep freeze over the weekend (figures – my husband is tasked with biathlon competitions, but if the mercury dips too low, the events will be cancelled, which creates a whole ‘nother set of issues with re-scheduling), but returning to ‘normal’ by Monday. Cold and frosty – we know where I’ll be – and for those of you in similar circumstances, I hope your craft-room is your #1 destination, too!
My card today is my attempt to express a most mega THANK YOU to everyone who has left sweet comments on my recent posts. Talk about buoying a flagging spirit! My mojo is still rattling around somewhere else, and my cards are feeling /looking just sort of ‘flat’ and ‘meh’. Knowing that you’ve seen glimmers of something positive: appreciated exponentially! I guess we all experience the ‘crafting slump’ now and again, however, I’ve had enough of it. Mr. Mojo: come back and play!
One of my resolutions is to be more 'thankful' this year, so I hope you'll accept my "Big Time Thnx..a super lot" as one of my first efforts to let you know how much I treasure this crafting community! You are awesome!! The sketch inspiration comes from Clean and Simple #273,
and the colour inspiration from Curtain Call: Smitten (the grey, in particular)
Apologies for photo quality. I’m relying on my husband’s cell phone camera that I still don’t
comprehend (can’t figure out how to focus the images better..,d-uh), coupled with gloomy lighting.
I love making little stacks! And *performing a happy jig* Do you see what's on the top left and bottom right of the white panel? WASHI TAPE!! Yes, I have washi tape, thanks to wonderful Barb, from Kinsale Creations, who sent the most AMAZING package of goodies my way! Awesome, plus x 100000!! I probably used it incorrectly (practice, practice), but ...washi tape now resides in my collection! Yayyy...thank you again, Barb!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
