First, I received a PIF package from Victoria last week and I'm just now putting it on here for you to see! Me....late?? NEVER!! :-)
She sent me all these cute cards. I hope you can read them. They're so cool. Thanks, Victoria! These will come in handy for writing notes and letters.
And since you all know I don't have nearly enough STUFF in the studio (!!!) I had to use my 50% off coupon at Michael's the other day. I went thinking I would buy some paintbrushes but got sidetracked and came home with this....
Did anyone see that cute little crow stamp in there?? Now, I wonder who that reminds me of?
This was priced at $49.99, and it was marked down to $19.99 which I thought was more reasonable so I decided to get it. I bought another stamp, one of those blocks with a stamp on each side, and figured I'd use my coupon on that since you can't use it on a sale priced item. WRONG!! When the girl rang me up she deducted the 50% from the stamp kit above so I got it for about $10! All those stamps plus four ink pads, chalk, ribbon, stickers and notecards. I think I did pretty good on that! Plus there's a set of alphabet stamps in a larger size than the ones I have now. To buy those would have been as much or more than I paid for the entire kit! So I felt pretty darned good about my foray into the after-Christmas shopping frenzy.
As for celebrating the New Year tonight, I think it will be hot chocolate in front of the fireplace with HB and the kitties. No partying for us this year! But we don't ever go out on New Year's Eve anyway. Both of us worked in the restaurant/bar business in our younger days and have no desire to get out in that mass of people! We used to refer to it as Amateur Night when I was a bartender. HB and I usually have a small bottle of champagne but not this year. I don't think Coumadin and champagne go together!!
I hope whatever you do to celebrate that you have a wonderful evening and share it with the ones you love. And be safe....
And "just bee-cause" you know I love these things, I thought I would finish out the year with a quiz!
|You Are A Blue Girl|
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.
I think that part about "if someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well" must be true 'cause you all know I was hurting (my calves!) last week!
Happy New Year!!! Have a good one and I'll see you in 2008....
