I did do a little stamping today...Christmas images for my Christmas cards for this year...I'm gonna try to get them done early so I can work on more gift ideas closer to the holidays. I stamped about 38 that's a pretty good head start...will have plenty of time to color them in. :)

I'm gonna go to a friends house tomorrow and stamp a little too. Maybe get some coloring done on the images for the cards.

My friend is going thru a tough time right now,,and needs something else to occupy her time,,so what better than to STAMP!!

Thank goodness, the snow didn't fall for very long and the temperatures warmed up to about 42 degrees,,,so the driving commute to work should be good. I'm going back to work after having 2 full weeks off and a couple days the week before that (snow days). Thankful that I have a job, but not ready to go back....dragging a bit this morning...sleep deprived!

It's SNOWING again :(

The white fluffy stuff is falling from the sky again...I just want to CRY!

Dreading tomorrow...

I'm really dreading going back to work tomorrow....the past 2 weeks have flown by and I really didn't get much done with the snow. I'm thankful that I still have a job to go to, because layoffs happened just before Christmas, corporations are wonderful that way ya know.

I was going to go stamp with a friend today, but I didn't sleep well and woke with a bad headache,,,anxiety I'm sure of what tomorrow brings....WORK. Hope I sleep tonight.
