Check It Out

For the book lovers out there, chech out Good Reads. A website created for book nerds like myself... filled with books, books, books waiting to be read!!

I went down to DC last weekend... 4 days of all kinds of tomfoolery. I felt 25 again... a good time was had! But now I am home to laundry, bills and work...

No new stamping lately... at the top of my Christmas list is a SU gift card! I hope Santa is good to me! I'm also thinking about ordering 2 stamp sets from My Favorite Things.. I've been tempted for a while! I will probably wait though as my vacation plans are set... until I change my mind again!:)

Jen and I are going to Buenos Aires!! The plan was Italy but given winter in the Northern Hemisphere and the dismal state of our dollar, we're heading south and a little west:) The other choice was Morocco... but I think we're sold on Buenos Aires in February. It's Operation Tango, aka stop stuffing your face with cookies and get yourself to the gym so you don't look like a large, pasty American, until then!!

Thankful Thoughts

Happy Turkey Day!! I hope you are having a good day on this most wonderful of American holidays... a day where it is socially acceptable to stuff yourself silly and lay like a sloth! I love it! Unfortunately, I am at work right now though I get off at 3 then I head to my sister's where chaos usually ensues. Tomorrow I leave for a long weekend with these cool girls. YAY... and I will get to see my friend Bobby who I haven't seen in forever... very thankful for that!!

There's so much to be thankful for... family, my nephews and niece,great friends, two jobs that allow me to try to help others in some way, freedom, a heart that still aches but not as much, four working limbs that will have to work overtime next week and craftiness that brings so much fun and cool people into my little world!!

Have a safe and fun day!! Gobble, Gobble!

What's A Girl To Do?

When the washing machine is broken and won't be fixed until Monday? Not go to the laundromat as a sensible girl may do... but go shopping! I went to Old Navy and bought a comfy fleece and loungy pants for yoga tomorrow.

Look at this cute RAK card I got from Dee (cookiemonster on SCS). I should have posted this on yesterday's post to go with the witch theme!

I have Monday off which I totally forgot about! Talk about a nice surprise!

Wicked Awesome

Bonnie, Alison and I saw Wicked last night. It was fantastic!! The leads who played Glinda and Elphaba were wonderful! It was at the Opera House which was a beautiful setting! There was a book club on the row in front of us which made me a little sad... Bonnie and I read Wicked as part of our bookclub. Our bookclub doesn't meet anymore as members had babies, got married and didn't have the time. I miss it though!

FS Sunday

I made this card tonight for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. I tried some non-traditional colors for a holiday card... I'm not too happy with how it turned out... oh well!
I modified this card by jpmayo on SCS.
On Thursday Bonnie and Alison and I are going to see Wicked!! I'm so excited... I wish Joey McIntyre was still in it:(
Hope you all had a good weekend! I'm off to do some paperwork for work.

Happy Saturday!

There are so many great sketch challenges out there this weekend! I can't wait to get started on them! Hurricane Noel is in the Boston area so it is rainy, cold and windy...a perfect day to stay in and stamp!

I made this card using Julee's sketch and this week's SCS color challenge.

Madeleine asked who the little peanut is... it's Charlie!

Hope you are having a happy weekend!!
