So, the curtain went up and I still had 2 more creations to finish. I was up until 2:30am working on them after several failed attempts to get ‘em how I wanted ‘em the first go around. Overall: I was VERY happy with what I did. Just wish I had had the time to do MORE of it.

The “Girls just wanna have fun!” theme was one I *really* could have run with . . . Mental note: I have GOT to figure out a way to get a jump-start on those designs and still fulfill other obligations. I am BAD at time management.

Unfortunately, as it was, I was having a “terrible horrible no good very bad day” (my kids loved that book) . . . which had started the day before! chuckle! I’m so lucky to have friends like Ellen, and friends I’ve never even met in real life, through www.splitcoaststampers.com . Their kind words really helped me pull myself up, after having had the wind knocked outta’ me . . .

Another good thing, besides having good friends to bolster me, I received a phone call from my daughter after her game. THEY WON!!!! ON TO STATE!!!! Woo HOOOOOOO!!!! I couldn’t be there; it was too far to take my 9 yr. old on a school night . . . but, boy are we excited in this household!!!

So, what do I need to do this week? Well, my HOUSE is in dire need of attention, having been neglected too long. I suspect the dust bunnies are pro-creating under the china hutch. SERIOUS!!!! I haven’t cooked a real “meal” since Sunday night.

And, I am soooooo behind on stamping thank-you’s for my Dirty Girls (the designers). I want to make something for the joy of making it, and send it to them. But, it’s been 3 months–I am THAT far behind. So, I need to develop something FUN–3 fun card designs. I want to play with my latest new stamps and some of the wonderful little embellishments some SCSers have snailed me–just so thoughtful and SWEET. Target $ Spot treasures that I never seem to be able to find and other things I dig.

I need to slap a Post It Note right above my work surface: USE STUFF. NO HORDING. chortle!

So, while I’m rustling up something to serve the starving masses, I’ll put on my imagination cap and see what comes; tomorrow should be a good stampin’ day! Yea!
