Teaching has taken all my time so far this year. I so enjoyed building my blog this past summer, that I wanted to continue it throughout the year. I simply cannot do both. I feel SO guilty for not posting to my blog occasionally, and keeping it up, but my paycheck does come first, and my obsession must come after that.
Anyway, I am on my official Thanksgiving break for a FULL week! I do have a lesson I have to pull together before the week is over, but I would like to start creating my Christmas cards and posting them. I have been scouring the net for ideas and inspiration! I am (for now) totally in love with Simon Says stamps. (I know, it was Penny Black before that, and Hero Arts before that) But I like how my interests and focus changes and refreshes and repeats. I really like the clean and simple look with lots of white space. I didn't before - but I do now. :) huh, interesting...
I also recently placed an order from a site I found. I had to try it out: cutathome.com. When you sign up for their VIP e-mails, they mail you coupon codes. I purchased two Spellbinder dies at a fraction of the cost using their 50% off coupon code! I went to Amazon, and the two spellbinder dies I wanted came to $60.00. I came to cutathome.com and my order with shipping was half that! My purchases are on their way! Hopefully they will arrive this week, so I can post them!
In addition, I found the time to make a coupon storage binder using my sewing machine, (NO - I don't sew), scrapbook paper and... page protectors. I want to take pictures and place that up here too, even though it isn't a duo and not even card making! But it is paper crafting and very creative if I do say so myself.
Let me wrap up this picture less post, and get busy, so I can post my creations! Bye for now.
