Other than the fact I had to go to work today, this was a good Monday. Not that work is all that taxing (I work 2 hours a day in the lunchroom at Matthew's school), but the noise and mess sometimes gets to me at work. Things were a little worse at work as the gym was being using as a polling station today so the kids were a little out of sorts thanks to outdoor gym classes etc.
But, like I said... other than having to go to work today, today was a good day.
First of all, the sun was shining! And it was nice and warm and gorgeous! I think we hit a high of 21C today... that's about 70F. That's pretty good for Calgary in October!!
And then, this afternoon, my girlfriend Kelly came over to stamp for a few hours. I didn't get a whole lot accomplished, but it was a great way to spend the afternoon! I find that I don't always go down to craft unless I have a reason... too lazy I suppose, or perhaps worried that I'll go down and not have any mojo. At least having a friend over means I have to make the effort.
While Kelly was here I put a couple of Lizzie Anne Designs cards into an envelope to mail in for their card contest.
This was one of the cards I created for the contest...
