I'm still scrapping away making sure I have everything done for the New Idea Open House tomorrow. I've got workshops created for the next three months, displays for the new Workshops On The Go, sign-ups for the next round of Oh, Scrap! and Wild Cards (my once a month scrapbooking and card making groups), display items for the new Jingle My Reflections Kit, displays for the Everyday Celebrations Card Kit (which as of this morning is down to 51% stock left available), and just making sure all the little odds and ends are completed. I haven't seen my dining table in a month!
And I'm also sad to report my brother suffered from my breaking of my New Year's resolution. I have done pretty well so far, but his birthday happened in the middle of all my chaos and I did not get his card made in time!
I don't know what my problem was, it's the same day every year, it's not like I didn't know it was coming, but I just got too busy.
After tomorrow, I'll be able to sit down and make him a nice card and play with a new tool I got recently...but until then I'll share something NOT for the Open House.
Stamps: CTMH Grateful Hearts
Inks: CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Goldrush, Barn Red
Papers: CTMH Harvest My Reflections Kit (way long retired, I just really love the leaves in it)
Last month, for some strange reason, I thought I could participate in a card front swap in The Frugal Scrapper yahoo group. "I know I have lots to do, but you say there's a swap going on? Sign me up!" I really need to think before I act sometimes. But, I did set aside some precious time and get 7 of these card fronts made and mailed. I kept it simple so I wouldn't have a meltdown and leave my family to fend for themselves...which is actually what they've been doing the past couple of weeks anyway.
And to add to all the guilt of being busy and oblivious to everything around me...today is my 10 year anniversary with Engineer! Yeah for us! Do I have a card for him?
PS: Marianne! I went and got the book right away on Tuesday! I've only been able to read the first 2 chapters, but I'm loving it so far!
