It's not been nearly as tough as I feared it would be to get back into the swing of things after a week on the beach. Don't get me wrong, I wish I was still in the pool with my margarita, but it's also nice to be back in the routine, in my own bed, eating my own food.
And it isn't killing me to get out of bed each morning.
Have I mentioned I'm not a morning person?
I have almost gotten my life caught up after a week away. I worked hard on Sunday and a little more yesterday afternoon to get all of the kits cut up for the classes I am teaching at the Pantry this week (Christmas Cards #3). They are packed and ready for me to take to the store tomorrow morning. After work today I will pack up the other supplies I need. I have gotten through my 1000+ items in Google Reader although none of the posts got the attention they deserved. I got through a week's worth of snail mail and have it all filed away where it belongs.
What's left to do? Well, I have to compile all the documentation to take to the Accountant for our company Year End which was October 31st (and of course, we have a trial balance to work through). And of course there are the Christmas cards.... I want to come up with a great idea for a card that I will share closer to Christmas so that those who read my blog get a card they haven't seen before... those who don't read my blog will get a card I've already posted.
And then there's ALL of the Christmas shopping (I have done *none*) and doing at least a little Christmas baking since I am hosting my family for Christmas this year.
Perhaps I'll relax on December 26th.
Anyway... enough of my babble....
I created this card at the Calgary Classic a month ago (for those who asked, the Calgary Classic was an event organized through Splitcoast Stampers... it was a weekend-long crop here in Calgary and we had a great time!
The lovely Shannon gave me these four Stampendous images that she bought while she was in the US recently as a thank you for me going over to feed her kitty for a week. Good deal for me!!!
I coloured the images with my beautiful Copics and added some patterned paper from the Michael's Christmas Stack from last year. I added a snowflake brad and some Dew Drops and called it a day!
Such cute little images!
