Where Have You Been?

Suppose this is the question you are asking yourself …  Where have I been.  It’s been about a week since I was able to post here.  So, here’s what I’ve been up to.

Not a heck of a lot.

Okay – we both know that isn’t true.  So, last week, I had a lot of work to do at work.  I know – it really is ridiculous that they actually want me to work.. at work!  In the words of Michelle Tanner…”How rude!”  But alas, sometimes, I just have to do other things.

On top of work, I went on the Walk to Emmaus this past weekend.  And, if you have ever been, you know it takes a couple days to recuperate.  Add that to losing an hour thanks to the Daylight Saving conspiracy.  Needless to say, Monday afternoon, I was in bed by 5pm!  If you have never been on the Walk, simply put, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime, 72-hour Christian retreat-like experience that combines Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day into each and every hour – I’m guessing – there are no time keeping devices allowed!!

Once recovered, I got called in to work at Yankee… I never turn down hours there, because it means more money for candles and stamps! Yay, Me!!!

Then, yesterday, I got a call… “Are you still having the Stamp Camp because I am wanting to come…”  So, of course I had to say yes.  This is a demonstrator’s biggest dilemma.  Really, isn’t it?  You plan an event.. no one RSVPs, so you don’t plan anything for it.  Then, someone calls to RSVP… do you cancel or do you do it all for just one person.  Well, my thought was that I cancelled it on the same gal last month, so this month, I wasn’t going to.  Even it if was just her and I, doggoneit, we were going to have fun.  So, I invited a few other people and am now up to at least three in attendance.

No, this isn’t just some little one or two card event.  This is a 10-card Stamp Camp…  At my stamp camps, you get to chose from 10 different cards to make.  You can make one of each, or whatever.  6 Birthday and 4 occasions.  And, there I was with no cards planned.

So, after work, I go home, eat dinner and create. Within a few hours, I had 8 designed and ready to go with all the pieces cut for 11 more of each for the ladies.

The last two cards will be Easter cards but I am struggling with those.  So, I will plan those before the gals get there tonight.

But, what I have been trying to work on is something so fun.  I am trying to find time to do the tutorial and won’t post it until then… but, here’s a sneak peek!

Until next time, keep it Simple, Stampers!
