1 more day till 2007!

I am excited! I am happy to get a new start. I have a few things on my new year to do list. I got 2 great gifts for Christmas. I received a journal and a Bedtime meditation book. I plan on using both nightly. I have also decided to make tabs for the journal so I can section it off. I want a To Do section and a section for the other plan I have.. for the month of January I am going to do a photo a day challenge. I am excited for this. I don't know what I want to focus on though. I either want to do just random photos like pic up my camera when I think of it or I could decide on a time. example. every day at 5PM I will take a photo of what ever I am doing or focusing on at that time. The other idea I have is a theme. Whether it be nature or buildings or whatever.. I only have 1 day to decide! It should go on my to do list! to do #1.. decide!
I also want to get at least 1 project done a week. I have a ton of lunch tins and photo frames to alter.. I want to be prepared when it comes to craft fair time next year.
So, that is what I have been focusing on today.. I normally try to do just 1 day at a time but today is special.. the end of the year always seems like the end of a chapter and the beginning of the rest of my life.
And now speaking of a to do list.. I need to go put clothes in the dryer!! Have a good night!

Let's see if this works..

I am going to try to post a picture here and if it is as easy as it seems to be I will start putting up some tutorials and projects I have done.
LOOK! It worked!! I am super excited! This card is all products of Stampin' Up!
paper - Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstock with Loves Me designer paper (available from the winter mini)
The stamp set is a Sell A Bration set called Happy Harmony (it should be called scrumptious!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this set! Heck.. I love all of the SAB sets! And did you SEE the scrappin pack!! WOW!) So, that is my first contribution to the stampin blog world! I am very excited that uploading pictures is so easy!! Enjoy!

Bad blogger!

I swore when I trashed the old blog and started this one I would keep up on it! I guess I lied! lol. I still haven't even checked on how to upload pictures on here. I have done so many projects lately that I am dying to share.. I am also cleaning out my craft room so I will have tons of RAKS once I get it all together. January I am starting a picture a day project and I am going to use this blog to keep track of them and record my journaling..
Speaking of January 1. I have alot of things that I am going to be doing and changing about myself and my life. I stop short of calling any of them resolutions because I find resolutions to easy to break.. A friend told me that only drinkers make resolutions.. I thought that was funny! And true (for me) I don't think I have made a resolution since I quit drinking!
So, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and anything else you might have celebrated over the last month. I wish everyone a Happy(and safe) New Year!

I am so tired..

It is 6:21AM Monday morning. Normal time to be awake yes? Not for me. I normally don't go to bed until 2 or 3 AM and wake up at about 10 or 11AM . 7-8 hours of sleep.. that is normal I just have different hours than many people. This morning however I am still awake.. yep.. I woke up yesterday morning and have gone straight through... why would anyone do this? Well... I forgot I had an appointment to have Dish come and hook up satellite in 2 more rooms (yep.. satellite tv in 5 rooms.. who the heck needs that? Apparently we do.. of course we only have 4 tvs'.. I guess I know what we are getting for Christmas! lol) So, why the all nighter? I had to power clean this house! It was horrible! Boxes of stamps and ink were everywhere! I got 1 bedroom and the kitchen pretty good but I still have to get the craft room straightened up. I am thinking this morning calls for fast food breakfast! I never eat fast food especially not for breakfast (obviously.. I am usually not awake for fast food breakfast hours! lol) but I think I need a pick me up.. I am going to be faded by 10AM if I don't do something. This is going to be a long day!
I needed to clean though. Mom will be home in about a week and she needs to get around our tiny house in a walker or wheelchair if necessary for awhile.. I haven't seen her all weekend. She says she feels really strong. I hope she is right and she is getting back to normal. I would love to see her enjoy life. Keep your fingers crossed!

Welcome to my world!

Hi! I am jumping on the stamp blog bandwagon.. I have had a rough month and I figured this would be a great way to get rid of some tension, let off some steam and maybe even share some of my art. I have a craft show coming up on Dec. 2nd so I will have much to share!
I am finding it hard to get going though. My Mom had a stroke 2 weeks ago so my time and energy is spent worrying and driving to the rehab she is in. I called her today and she was so happy. She walked today for the first time. She has been haunted by a set of stairs that is in the therapy room. She finally got them to let her try today and she did it!! I am so happy for her but also worried. The plan was to work on her sitting and standing up straight. She leans to the left really bad so if they "teach" her to walk now she will walk hunched to the left. We don't want that but right now she doesn't care she just wants to walk. I don't blame her. This must be a horrible nightmare that she can't wake up from. I know that when I was in the hospital I wanted nothing but my own bed but at least I could take a walk. She is stranded wherever they put her. When I talked to her at 12:45 she was still in a wheelchair since 6:30 this morning. Depending on someone is okay sometimes if you don't have to. Being without choice is not so nice. If you are of the praying kins please include her in your list. Prayer is the most powerful medicine in the universe.
Onto other stuff.. I got a new Stampin Up order today. I sliced the tape open, put it on a chair, walked away for one moment and now there is a sleeping cat on the box! I guess I won't be playing with any new stamps for awhile!
I have been a Stampin' Up! Demo for about a year and a half. I mostly do it as a hobby but if anyone wants to have a party just let me know! lol
I will be putting pictures of a few lunch tins I did for a swap this week so keep an eye out! They make great gifts!!
Oh! The cat just got down! I have to go check out my new rubbah!! see ya later!
