Snow Day!

As much as I hate snow, I’m a little thankful for it today. I actually started a new job this week, which is great and I think I’m really going to like it. My first day I got three dozen cookies as part of cookie swap that I wasn’t even part of and my second day… I got the day off! (Those are not the reasons why I think I will enjoy it, though! lol) I have to say that as excited as I am to be learning new things and enjoying my new role… I’m a little bit more excited to have an unexpected day off to get a few things accomplished. One of my “things to do” today will include some simple play time. I got some new products from the upcoming Occasions mini catalog and I really haven’t had much time to play with it. I also hope to do some planning for some upcoming classes at the same time — wouldn’t that be a shocker for me to create projects BEFORE the day before the class? lol. I also have “nap” on the to-do list — that has to be one of my favorite things to

New toys…

Howdy, friends! Happy Sunday to you… although it is almost over now. I had a super long “to do” list today, but I’m trying to be better about the old blog-o (I know I’ve said that before… but I’m trying!) Today I was actually working on some Christmas gifts… including a My Digital Studio digital scrapbook for my brother’s race at Seekonk Speedway earlier this year… among other things. The card I’m featuring today is actually one from the three-part Holiday Card Classes I held for the past three months. I like how this one has a monotone feel except for the one pop of red. I used Contempo Christmas stamp set, Sanded background stamp, Woodland Walk DSP, the ornament punch and Wild Wasabi as the green. Now on to the title of this post… Guess what I got on Friday? I got a nice big box of brand new products from the upcoming Ocassion Mini Catalog! I got a ton of fun products to play with to prepare for some classes and events in January. You’ll definitely want to keep an eye on the blog for the next few weeks as I share a few sneak peeks of the

The holiday favorite

Well hello there long lost blog friends! I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving with your loved ones. I think things are finally starting to calm down a bit for me these days. Not that that is necessarily good news… but I do have to say it’s nice to be able to take a breather! Of course, this is only for a short time before I kick into high gear for the start of ’11! In fact, as we speak I have a box of brand new Stampin’ Up product on my stamp room couch. It’s begging me to open it and play, but I told myself I could not open the box of new goodies from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog until I cleaned up my room! (I think I’m channeling my mother 🙂 The card above is a Christmas card I designed for a workshop this season and I have declared it my favorite card of the year. It was supposed to be a nice simple, no coloring card, but really turned into a card that wasn’t quite as simple as I had intended. I absolutely love it though. The colors are not your normal Christmas combination, but
