Here in My Gloomy Place...

Oh, dear...Oh, was such a gloomy and dreary day. I couldn't motivate myself to do anything:(

I did get up and run to the grocery store early this am cause I couldn't get Steve to move fast enough. So I ran for some things I needed for breakfast then came home to make it. This is where my day started to go downhill. As I was trying to cut the plastic on the mexican sausage, the knife slipped and it sliced through my finger...OUCH!!! The sadder thing is...I've done this before:( This time was not as bad as the last time, but it was throbbing for quite a bit and I've had to change my bandaid quite a few times cause it keeps slipping off from getting wet from all the hand washing:(

So anyway, the rest of the day just kind of drug on and I just couldn't get myself to do anything productive...or maybe I should say "fun"...cause I got my house stuff done and I washed out some bins in the fridge I'd been meaning to do. Washed a load of delicates then hung them to dry in our wash room. Took pics of some things and listed them on Craigslist.

So earlier I had a bit of a headache coming on too so I took some Ibuprofen to nip it in the bud and then I laid down for a while and took a little nap. Later in the afternoon, after I got up, I decided to work on some Christmas cards.

I am always saying I am going to make my cards and have them ready to mail out then I just keep procrastinating and never get them done and we end up not sending any out at all. So I thought I'd start today.

I don't consider myself a very good card maker in the least, but I had these MME Festive/Frost card kits I bought on clearance at 911 last year. I LOVE these lines...(remember I found the big pad at M's recently;) So I brought out my kits and started to work on them.

I did the first 3 and was pretty happy with how they turned out...

I added some things that didn't come in the kits like the green scalloped square behind the cardstock quote, the Sizzix cut snowflake and the twine. I used adhesive mounts on the quote and snowflake to give them more dimension:)
Oh, I need to add a quick note here. My knee had been killing me the last couple of days (I credit it to the Eliptical), so I took a couple days off to see if it would feel any better which by today it significantly was. So as I'm going to scoot in my chair at my desk, I knocked my knee on a shelf I have under there. I mean, I really slammed into it. Duh!!! I hope my knee doesn't start hurting AGAIN:(

So we ate dinner and chilled for a while, then I went back and worked on 3 more:) These went a lot quick and were easier. I really enjoyed working on them.

To these I added the dimensional snowflake sticker, again a scalloped square and some lace trim on the bottom. I used the plain silver staples to attach it:)

Here's V reading her school journal. I thought it was so funny. She wanted to wear the Indian hat. They made them at school on Friday. I love the part when she says..."Uh...I don't know what I wrote there"..."or when she says..."I'm just going to make something up"...Too funny:)

Ugh...I can NOT get this video thing to work:( I'll try again later:)
