Time for a little creative inspiration! I'm cleaning the house and heading on the road today. Although you may only "hear" my excitement, I'm seriously doing cartwheels because I'm only days from seeing my mama.
The last few days have been incredibly stressful. Yes, we are super excited to move but moving always has a side to it that can be ugly. Yesterday was UGLY. The truck didn't finish loading until 1am. The best part… I learned we have too much stuff. HA HA HA. Really? At midnight they had filled the truck and there were still things that needed to go on the truck.
By 1230AM I was so overwhelmed with how they were going to fit it all on the truck and dealing with my kitty I laid on my floor in my living room and passed out. I can handle stress pretty well but yesterday not so much. Between saying goodbyes to friends, my cat and having to console my kids I was pretty much DONE.
I packed 70% of my stamp room myself and put it on our box truck. I'm thinking I should have packed it all. The driver called with the weight of the truck and it's not pretty. The military only pays for so many pounds. Once you are over that weight, you pay. Again, it wasn't pretty. I thought Russ was going to pass out this time.
It will be fine. I like all my stuff. We will be fine. Looks like we should add more stuff. <hee hee>
Now that our truck is loaded we are taking off EARLY and will be on the road.
I want to say a big thank you for all of your support during our transition. It's so uplifting and your messages yesterday were heartfelt over our kitty. I cannot belive she is gone.
While I'm driving, I'm inspiring… Not totally true. My stamping friends from convention are going to inspire you.
This elegant card was created by Della Duerksen. Love how she used the Pistachio Ink with the Beautifully Baroque stamp set.
Michelle Hallen made this gorgeous Fall card using new stamps from the Holiday Mini catalog. Love the Designer paper with the Burlap ribbon. The Burlap ribbon is a MUST HAVE!!
Catherine Sanders made this gorgeous Halloween card. She must know my love affair with Halloween. I love how she embossed the image onto the Designer Label punch. It totally stands out and the glitter is just another beautiful touch. BLING!
Candi Homa-Sketon made this butterfly look incredible with her monochromatic colors. The Swallowtail stamp set is a fantastic stamp set for so many great stamping techniques to try.
My friend Joyce Feraco made this gorgeous & elegant card using the Eastern Elegance Designer Paper. *LOVE* that paper and look how gorgeous it pairs with Smoky Slate cardstock.
I'm not sure who made this beautiful Modern Mosaic card. It's beautiful and I love the color combination using our new In Colors. I think the Modern Mosaic stamp set will be the most popular this year. So many great ideas. If this is your card be sure to let me know so I can give you proper credit.
My posts will be a bit sporadic over the next couple of weeks. We have a lot to do for the next house so we can move in. It's going to be a bit CRAZY. Hang in there, soon this will all be a blur.
