Did you miss me??? Well, I missed hearing from all of you. I guess the moral of the story is if you don't "feed" your viewers with some art than you shouldn't expect to hear anything. Yah, yah I know that is how it works but it would be nice for somebody to just drop in and say, "Hey girl, I'm missing you so get off your duff and post something new." To be honest with you that is exactly what I have been doing -- nothing!! Well almost nothing, I started the week off by finally doing my taxes. Oh my gosh, I about fell out of my chair at what I had to pay. Nobody told me I would get taxed on my Social Security!! Dah, I should have known that the government takes their 3rd out of "everything." Stupid me, I thought that was all taken care of when I was working. So not only did I get a whopping amount due, but had to pay a penalty and have to start making quarterlies (pretty sad when I have never had to pay in my entire life, and then it is after I retire). Oh well, what can you do but move on and feel blessed that I didn't have to take out a loan -- LOL.
I also updated my Automated Excel Workshop Forms with all the new 2011 Summer Mini Catalog items and posted it on Splitcoast. So if you want an updated version, go to Splitcoast or leave me a comment requesting a copy. And I spent a little time doing some organizing in my studio -- a never-ending job for all of us, but something I love to do, as I find all these treasures that I forgot I owned. All in all, it was a great relaxing week. I knew I would need it, because the rest of the month will be busy, busy, busy. I have tons of birthdays to celebrate (my girls, grandchildren, family), so lots of cards to make, shopping, and dinners to make.
And of course, I did my Try Stampin' On Tuesday inspiration card and a few birthday cards for family that I can't show you right now. Here is what I came up with for inspiration using this week's sketch:
