Christmas Cards

I know it’s September but I’ve been working on making my own cards for the last few months.
I hadn’t done any for awhile but the other night I had an inspiration. The card here is the result of that. I love this background stamp and these were just too quick and easy. I would also like to try it in the Cranberry and see how that looks.

Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions about it.

OK – I know that I have been slackin’

My signagture line says it’s been updated….but it’s not. I know, I’m sorry. I don’t have any real good excuse. I did get sick for almost 2 weeks and that really kicked my butt. I’m feeling better and think I might actually live now. But, really I don’t have any good reason.

So, lots going on with us here. Ayla started ballet last weekend. Actually it’s tap and ballet. She did a great job during her first class. Jumped right in and followed along so well. She was so cute. They don’t let parents in the classroom during the class so I couldn’t really get good pictures but I think next week is an observation week. They take the classes all year long and then next June there will be a recital. I remember doing tap and ballet as a child, so I think it’s very cool for Ayla to be doing it now.

Tomorrow we are getting new carpet in our house. We choose a beige berber carpet that I think we will be very happy with. It sure beats this ugly blue/green crap we have now. I also think it’s going to make the whole place look bigger and brighter. The living room is so dark now….anything will help.

OK DSS – I’ve updated my Blog now…..thanks for asking about it. I’ll keep trying to stay on top of it.

It was a Journey

Like reliving Jr High and High school all over again. Flashes of memories and things that happened so long ago I thought they were long gone out of my brain. A few sad ones, but mostly happy memories, of friends, love and life as a teenager.
Steve Perry wasn’t with Journey is round and that was a bit disappointing. But none the less they put on a great show.
Def Leppard rocked the house! I could not believe how good they sounded and then energy they still had after all of the these years! Songs I had not listed to in a decade came flooding back to me and I was awesome!! I felt 15 again, jumping and singing and dancing my heart out. It was so good for my soul.

Seeing 2 concerts in 1 month was huge for me. I have not been to a show in ages. But, I’ve had such a great time that Ticketmaster has become one of my most visited sites on the internet.
In fact, Miss Mary and my boys and I are thinking of catching The Who when they roll into town next month.

I took some pics but have not downloaded them just yet. I’ll post them sometime over the weekend.
