A Quick Escape …

From Margueritaville – where NO Corona is served!  [HaHaHa!!! … while pounding chest!] I received my new Tim Holtz alcohol inks today (ordered back in late January/early February).  So, I had to pause for a moment and try a J.McGuire technique.  Maybe, 1):  I shouldn’t be so SURE of myself [Umm, listen and follow all …

And – In an Instant …

I’m so defeated!  My year has been turned upside down, all on one day.  At first I was incredulous … Then it started sinking in, and my hands started shaking, and then – as I was tearing my office/studio upside down, I broke down and cried. Thus went my Friday …  pre-filled with crazy ideas …

Pup Watch & Staying Busy …

As a first time mom, Georgie and her pups are doing great!  She has even adjusted to having a whelp-mate in the nursery, as Gina is waiting for her pups to arrive (- and growing bigger by the minute!) …  So, DH and I are staying close.  I’m so grateful we have a finished basement …

Busy … But with Downtime

We’ve had a busy week … welcoming pups on Tuesday.  Our Georgie is doing a great job as a first time Mom, but we’re staying close to keep an eye on all.  So – I’ve had plenty of time to work on cards – stamping, masking, die-cutting, coloring … And(!) – I organized my growing …

Birthdays, Card Making & EPIC

Wrapped up all of my mandatory nurse classes last week, YAY!  Got through the weekend shifts, and heard such bizarre complaints, I can’t even mention them… My goodness, but folks are losing coping skills by the bucket-loads! Moving on … On Tuesday, DH and I made nachos, making the chips (cut tortillas) in the air …

Hibernating …

I haven’t decided if I’m battling some wimpy bug or just hibernating this week.  But, I’ve been sleeping for long spells, with short periods of consciousness – to eat, peruse the internet and play with cards/paper.  And then – back to sleep … Tomorrow is going to be a long one, with mandatory work competency …

Deadline 2 of 4 & The New Year …

I started the week off by meeting the (latest) new deadline for online work competencies.  Which made the next two weeks mine!  YAY!  We had beautiful skies on Monday, along with some snow fall on Tuesday … I caught photos: [DH and] I gifted ourselves with an air fryer – so we spent much of …

T-5 days …

Actually, I have 2 more days to prepare for Christmas … [Fingers Crossed – but I think we’re looking okay!]   Just a few more items to purchase, projects to complete and gifts to wrap.  And get through an ER nursing weekend.  It’s all good!  We’ll be ready to start the celebrations on Christmas Eve … …

On The Mend …

Both physically and creatively – with baby steps!  I must not have been successful at the dodging-and-weaving game with our swarm of flu/URI-crud patients last weekend in the E.R. … I’ve been fighting sinus pain/snot and body aches this week – the best way I know:  Lots of vitamin C (orange juice), strong medicine (ummm, …

A Quiet Week …

After Michigan’s first snowfall of the season (Monday) and a stressful weekend at work, I decided on a low energy, restful week.  We made some comfort foods (nachos, mostaccioli and quesadillas), played with pups and talked about Christmas plans.  I made a card and moved some dichro cabs along:       On a positive note …
