My Kitties are Famous

My friend Sue sent me a drawing of my kitties. She didn't have a great picture of the 3 of them to work with but she definitely captured their spirit. She did an amazing job. Almost too good, yesterday they kept looking at me with that mischievous looks on their faces. It was eerie.

I appreciate it so much, the time and effort she put into the drawing. I am going to go and frame it.

Thanks again, Sue!

A Whole lot of ATC's!

I joined an alphabet swap. I am not sure why I did it. LOL I loved the idea of seeing everyones ATC's...but wasn't looking forward to making 26.

Then on top of that I picked the letter T. There were tons of letters left at the time...and I have no idea why I picked this one. I first was going to do a time theme....with a cool collage background. But that lasted about 2 seconds.

Then I couldn't figure out what I was going to do. So when I went to HL the other day...they had CB embossing folders on sale. 30% off....I almost didn't see it...but they had the ty one there and to begin with it was $1.00 cheaper than the other ones.

So I bought that...then yesterday on SCS someone did a cool technique...and I asked her about it. She got it from someone else...Stamping Kub....and what it was inking the top part of the inside of the embossing folder...placing the paper in there...and embossing it.

I tried it....I like how it came out...very graphic and very messy. I have ink all over my leg...some on the cuttlebug that didn't come off...but it came off of the embossing folder with just a rinse. Next I used a SU stamp Thanks and dug through my letters and found that I had more than 26 T's...and used red/white paperclips to attach them.

Thanks for looking....I probably started on these around 11 last night and finshed at 1:30.

What a wonderful product this stamping friend from PC message board started a new business. I heard about the product from a couple of people and decided I better check it out. It is a mini album for your cards. What is nice is that the cards can be easily removed if you wanted to give them to someone. I love it. It is also a wonderful idea for moms, grandmas, and such...I know I send my mom cards all the time and she likes to keep them but doesn't know what to do with them. This will be a perfect gift for her.

However, for the moment...I just bought myself one to get my cards in order. I am going to have spots for 110 cards....LOL Anything more will have to be given to someone else to enjoy!

The creator of Cardkeepers is Lucy and here is her website. I love the idea of supporting another crafter. Hope you do to.

Have a great day.

First Day of School

I feel like a kid again. Well almost! Today is the first day of classes and since I am taking 2 online classes I don't actually get to go to class. However, I have spent the last couple of hours reading the syllabuses and figuring out what to do.

I am taking accounting and social work. Two totally different classes but they work for me. This semester will help me decide which direction to finish my degree in. Since Sheldon is probably graduating (or at least finishing) by December 2008. I will not be applying to UGA. I will wait and finish my classes when we move. It is especially important because you need to have so many of your classes at a particular school to graduate.

I had a job interview today. It was for a parttime accounting position. I have done accounting related work before but always with other duties. So this would be a good experience for me if I receive it. Please keep your fingers crossed for me.

Today, has not been a crafting day! However, tomorrow is a new day and after getting some projects done I might get a chance to create. On the other hand, today was an excellent mail day. I received two altered dominos from the domino toss that I am in. My SU order came and I received my order of retired SU stamps. Next, I received a thank you package from someone I sent some images to. Lastly, I received a great set of ATC's for a swap that I am hosting.

Now it is time to go eat. :) Have a great night! Or day!
