Mojo Monday Week 80


I can do sketch challenges all the time. I just never get tired of them. This time around I discovered the Mojo Monday site and decided to give their most recent sketch a try. I also chose to use this month's new Stamp of the Month set from Clear Dollar Stamps. It's called Silhouette Wishes April 2009 SOM. I just LOVE IT and I hope you LOVE IT too. :-)

You might note that lately I've been using many of the same papers with different projects. For the most part, I have been trying to be more frugal with my DP since my supply budget has disappeared. It's a perfect time to use up all those mounds of papers that I've been hoarding over the years. I think my worse problem is paper scraps. I have one box just sitting waiting for me organize and I just can't bring myself to get to it yet. (For shame!) That box is a mix of little stamped doodads and paper scraps. It's a mess. :-(

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We had to drive down the mountain to Grants Pass and Medford for some necessary errands yesterday. It sure does make for a long day but in the end it's nice to get things done.



Speaking of getting things done... I haven't done any stamping over the last couple of day. I wonder if that's why I'm so cranky? If it's not the lack of creating it could be the rainy weather. Who'da thought that leaving the snowy cold tundra of Alaska for Oregon would be so rainy wet? By God's grace I am adjusting. By the way, someday I will be changing the look of my blog to reflect our move but for now we don't have enough electricity coming to the cabin for me to spend the time on the computer for such an undertaking. In the mean time I've been brainstorming on what changes I'm gonna make. Lots to think about there. :-)

Smiles,

Wow! Your card is so beautiful!
I have the same box of the scraps from different papers, you are not along!
I hope you will feel better very soon... I can understand what you feel.. We moved 4 times here in the States, if not count my Big move from another country, very different to me!
Everything will be all right, Nancy!
