Doing Better Today

Thank you for all of your supportive comments. Today I'm feeling a little better. Sometimes when I'm nervous or have stress in my life, I get a little down. Plus sometimes I just miss Joey. I think it will always spring up on me like that. I wish it wouldn't, but I also know that when you love someone as much as we loved Joey I am going to mourn even if I have faith that he is in a beautiful place and well again.

I may have jury selection/duty tomorrow. I am SO dreading it. I get VERY nervous about certain social situations--and that would definitely be one. Flying is another. I hate that about myself, and I have worked and worked for years to change it. I just haven't found the best solution yet. So wish me luck--that I won't get called up and that I won't freak out. ;)

I'm still creating. I'm so assignment driven so I've loved the stamping challenges at 2Peas this week. It helps me think outside the box and try new things.

I made this card and used the "argyle" embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I love this new folder. I'm realizing that I love neutral patterns and this really works for me. The products are Little Yellow Bicycle's "Christmas Magic" which must be shipping soon because I just got my product box. YUMMERS!! Seriously gorgeous glittered, and foiled, and flocked goodies. Beautiful!!

I love this card. I think it's the blue, green and red combo. It's a little outside the box for typicaly Christmas colors. Again, using that embossing template, and LYB product. I told you this line was GORGEOUS!! :)

And I had fun trying something new with this project. It's a peanut can, cleaned out, and repurposed with LYB Christmas products. I made a bunch of Christmas tags to go inside the bag. On one side of the tag is an embossed/stamped snowflake and on the other side is the to/from and a Versmark stamped snowflake. Quick and easy project. (Those glittered brads are also LYB). :)

And I got some photos from Jessi Stringham from my SU party. Here's one of Loni, Jessi, Robyn, and I. She has an awesome camera as my living room was not this well lit. :)

And here's one of Robyn and I. She is so uber talented. I'm so grateful that she would come up and share her awesome gift with my friends and I. Thanks to all who came!!

Well, I've got to finish the laundry and get ready for my friend Amber to visit. I haven't seen her since I moved from Georgia. I'm so excited!! :)
