I started a new job on January 23rd (which I love) and it seems the days have been flying by. I don't know when I've gone this long without posting, but somehow in my absence, I have a new follower. (Thank you very much.) I've been taking photos and writing posts in my head, but haven't gotten them out there in cyberland. (Do you do that, too?)
I've been so insanely busy and longing for some down time. What do you like to do in down time? I LIKE to get to my art table and make cards and use stamps and create. More likely, you'll find me scurrying about the house, cleaning up the kitchen, doing dishes, loading the washer and dryer, folding clothes, changing the bed, ironing. (Yes, I iron, get over it. I also do dishes and eshew the dishwasher, leaving that to dug.)
I could write an entire post on cards that I haven't shown you.
I went to the Heirloom Arts Show in Indianapolis on March 3rd and I found it to be boring. (Sorry, Heirloom, I did.) All of the same old boring stuff that I've seen over and over. Except for the folks at 100 proof press. I had been looking for an Eiffel Tower stamp and found one with them.

Another store that I got really jazzed about was Paper Source in Bethesda. The duggles, me, my daughter and the baby dashed out to Georgetown Cupcake in Bethesda on the day of the Bee's party and there was a Paper Source on the same street. I had never been in one and managed to find a few stamps in a very short amount of time. While my daughter and I picked up cupcakes and checked out Paper Source and a toy store, dug sat in the Kia with the sleeping birthday girl.
Do you get the picture? Do you understand why I am flummoxed? Overnight it is eighty degrees and my fireside sittin' days are over for another season. Tell me I'm not the only one.
