Luckily, the rest of my shopping should be fairly easy and I should be able to buy here locally or on-line, I do NOT plan to go near the Malls now that we are in the final weeks. I'm not a huge fan of lines or crowds, so I HOPE I can stay in town. But...t never, say never! One thing I did notice on Friday, was how bad the economy still is...! It's the first Black Friday that I've see such a small amount of people shopping and it was very easy to shop too. I didn't have any problem at all with parking, lines or crowds, it could easily have been an average week day, but with fantastic deals.
Today, I started the project writing out my Christmas Cards and I made a huge dent in that project, only to realize that I did NOT make enough cards. I make each card a bit different, so it takes me a long time to make the 40 or so, that I mail out. I thought this year, I would make less and then mail store bought cards to some of my list, but I can't seem to do that. Tomorrow, I will have to make another 5 or 6 cards and hopefully have them all in the mail by the end of the week. I also made a card for my God-Daughter who turns 33 on December 1st. Yikes! I can still remember being at the hospital the night she was born and it sure does NOT seem like it was 33 years ago. WOW!
I have been really tired this week and also just realized that I did NOT do a Project 365 page this week, so I still need to get that done too! I've been so good about make one every week and will not stop now. I think this week will be another page about my Copics and the online coloring class I took, along with some Digi Stamps I have been practicing with. I have found a NEW love in Digi Stamps and found a bunch of freebies, and then some super cute ones from Pink Cat Studio. Melissa, (the owner) was very friendly and nice, so I know I will want tos hop there again. She has a Craft Store too, but right now I'm really into her Digi Stamps. I bought them on Black Friday, and that day, as a bonus I received a super cute "Sugar Plum Fairy" stamp, (click here) for free. Isn't she adorable. I can tell I'll be looking more and more into this type of stamp. Love them!!
Here are a couple pics of some of the stamps I bought from Pink Cat Studio. I have had a blast coloring them with my Copics and every image I color is more practice at shading and blending! It's actually FUN and RELAXING too!
And these cuties...
and this is the one I'm working on...
I thing they all will be really awesome for cards and I LOVE how easy it is to buy them and the fact that you have them "Instantly" and can also size to to any size you want! Sure is easy!! I really think this is something I will start to do more often! This could very well become my newest craft obsession!
Well..that' sit for me...!
Have a good night and hope everyone enjoyed their Holiday Weekend!!
