After the garage sale I waited and waited to feel this great sense of relief as I thought once I purged myself of a lot of my excess gear I’d have this weight lifted from my shoulders. Well, that’s what I’ve heard a lot of these experts say at least. I really thought the “heavy” feeling I’d been experiencing for so long would miraculously disappear… well it didn’t heh?!
But a funny thing happened whilst I was away on the week-end… whilst I was away “creating” with Britney, Paris, Nicole, Jessica, Lindsay and Kelly (names have been changed to protect the innocent) my darling hubby was disassembling our old 510l fridge/freezer that so within hours of my arriving home on Monday morning, we had the huge sucker down the four flights of stairs and into the garage.
It was almost four months to the day since it had ceased to work that it was finally no longer sitting stagnant it my dining room. It was after this that I promptly fell asleep on the couch, have now slept EVERY afternoon since, and am now I’m fighting what I guess is a summer flu as I can’t go anywhere without my box of tissues and feel as if a bus has hit me. Oh happy days!
Today, however was NOT wasted as to get me in the Christmas spirit the children and I watched back to back Christmas movies. I only managed three movies before falling asleep. I was then woken a couple of hours later with a very late afternoon snack of… a fried egg! Yes, Master Nine loves his fried eggs as much as I do so had made us each a fried egg as a snack! Don’t you love it?!
Anyways, enough moaning. This is one of the cards I made for my last SAS (Stamp-a-Stack) classes. This year I seem to be favouring pink, purple and white for Christmas. With the exception of the base card, each piece of white cardstock I’ve embossed with the polka dot embossing folder.
The Christmas Ornament has been stamped twice, having been kissed with both Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo. It was then punched out with the Ornament punch with one of these having a 1inch circle punched from the centre and then dazzling diamonds glued all around the remaining cardstock. And of course a rhinestone placed in the centre of the ornament pattern.

I am sorry to hear you have been feeling bad. Hope by now you are up and going again. My favorite Christmas movie is the Christmas Carol. I watch almost any version of that movie every year.
