Sunday Night Check-in

This is the incredible card I received along with my goodies from winning at a March rumble at Clear Artistic Stamps. It was made by the wonderful Lisa Lorigan. I think it is a perfect example of the different and exotic things you can make using CAS's amazing stamps! I've been meaning to put it up here for many days. BTW- there's a terrific sale going on at Clear Artistic Stamps called Celebration Special. You should definitely check it out- I ordered as soon as I saw it.

It is Sunday night and I am back into my routine. I have enough clean laundry for two weeks, my schoolbag is packed and my cell phone is charging. My land-line phone service is back thanks to a visit from a very nice technician. It was very warm here yesterday and today and I a
m hoping that it will mean that my classroom will be a little warmer than it was last week. I have already taken my night time meds and am hoping that the stress of going back tomorrow won't keep me awake too long.

I am having a lot of fun with Aury's sampler and the forum. What Bablefish does is not always accurate, to say the least. Several of the ladies wrote that my color choices were pretty, but the ones who wrote "cute" Babelfish translated as "tuna"!!!! They told me- in English- that I did not want to know how Babelfish translated my first post. I managed to put up a second post in my fractured Spanish- I used babelfish only for individual words and wrote from my MUY POCO Spanish (that's "very little"). The sampler chart will be given to us in stages and the first part will be released on Wednesday so I am getting excited about it. Here's the fabric and threads I chose: a natural colored linen and a group of DMC Flower Threads that have been in my stash forever. (You can be sure they are old- DMC discontinued FT several years ago.) I don't even remember why I bought them but among the collection were some colors I really like for this project. It took a while to decide on these- I actually had a good time "shopping from my stash"!

Well, time to get to bed and get ready for another week. Here's hoping its a good one for everyone!

I had to laugh at the babelfish thing (don't even know what it is), but when i type my Step Mom's name that we call her "BOBO" spellcheck corrects it to BOOB. I have to always remember to fix it...for some reason spellcheck won't let me add it as a name and I don't want to be calling her that!
Hope all is well with you;)
