Well! I HAVE to say that yesterday was one of those "perfectly balanced" days. It ran like clockwork! I did a little bit of housecleaning, a little bit of paperwork, a little bit of bill sorting, a little bit of "working" (aka card making!!), a little bit of excercising, a little bit of relaxing, a little bit of baking with the kids and I even made a "proper" dinner. Ahhhh - felt great! Especially when the day COULD have gone so wrong! I woke up quite hormonally emotional. Ever been there? I KNOW you have! You know what I'm talkin' about. You get up, look in the mirror ... do your daily search of your chin for any stray black hairs growing ... and you find one ... that is about an INCH LONG (HOW does this happen??? Every day I look ... every day I find nuthin ... then one day I find something that looks like it should be growing out of my dad's EAR ... NOT my FACE!!! AND ANOTHER THING! WHEN the hell did I get to the age where I started looking for stray black hairs in my face???!!!) ..... but I digress .... yes ... the day didn't start off on the best of notes. I dropped the girls off at school and as I was pulling away I could feel my eyes starting to well up with tears (been THERE?) I was all set to get home, have a good cry and spend most of the day having a little pity party with me, myself and I (and the cat and the dog). But half way home I made a decision. "They" say that happiness is a choice. So I mulled it over. Maybe today I would choose to be miserable. Then I thought better of it. Nope - I decided to choose to stay positive ... and that's what I did! I got home, grabbed my "I Choose Journal" and wrote "Today I Choose to be POSITIVE!". Ya know what? It worked! I turned the day around and had a GREAT day. I guess "they" are right ... and I'm glad :))) So! Now that you know a little more than you wanted to about my morning face-searching ritual how 'bout we get to some projects *lol*?
Here is the project I put together last weekend for the girls' classmates for Valentines Day this year:
Yesterday my mission was to create a quick "male" Valentine card using the chalkboard technique (for class this Friday). Mission accomplished! Approximately 7 minutes later I was done. This is what I came up with:
I'll leave it there for now ... but pop back tomorrow for an AWESOME card which will be another one we are making in class Friday. LOVE IT!!! Until then ....
Have a stampy day (and stay positive!!!)
