First Week - Complete!

So, my first week of grad school is complete..... WOW, was that a lot of work!

For all those who came out to Stampers' Alley last weekend for my make n' take - THANK you for taking the time to wait in line.... I cannot believe I had a LINE!  Next time, I will try and remember to have more stations available.... I did have a fab time and met some very nice new stampers!  Hope you all had fun too!

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with friends making thank you cards - we made over 100 cards in one day.... Whew, that was a lot, but they looked awesome and I am so proud of the work we did.... started at 10am and took a lunch break, and finished around 5pm.... then crashed on the couch the rest of the night while the NASCAR race was on and by the time I woke up, it was getting close to the end, and not a good one for us, but apparently "that is what the fans like" - I personally will get on my soapbox right now with the comment that it is not about the crashing.... it is about the racing - and to my point, the Formula One race that we had on today, had some amazing passing and lead changes without all the destruction!  Oh well, time to build more cars, Matt will be a busy guy this week!

As for me, more homework!  And some needed time in my craft room (I hope) - maybe I can get some images uploaded by the end of this week.... I am thinking that we (my stamp buddies) should challenge ourselves to pick one item in the craft room that is not normally used anymore - and make 2 project with them.... While creating yesterday, we were commenting on how eyelets, for example, just kind of sit in their containers and are rarely taken out and used these days..... so maybe that will be the first one - this week, 2 projects that have eyelets!  Would love to see if any of my virtual buddies will join the challenge and post some project for me to see.....

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!
