(I already posted a thred with this title...must have been last Monday. LOL I need to get some new material..)

What's everyone up to today? I need to get some cards done, but there are so many Halloween preparations left...I need to carve the pumpkin tonight and hollow out the 4 small mini pumpkins to make little pumpkin votives. I got my luminarios done last night... the costume and the trick or treat bag for the baby are ready... we'll probably just hit one or two houses then come hom to pass out candy. I made about 40 of the crepe paper pumpkin treat holders from Martha's book...they look super cute. I'll feel back to normal on Wednesday I guess..

How are you doing today? :)

I'm waiting for my box of justjohanna stamps to arrive as well as I can hardly sit still waiting for Sherry's santa stamp to arrive and I also have a couple online garage sale stamp purchases that should arrive any day too. :D

I'm going nuts waiting to begin some major card production and creations with all of these new stamps. PLUS, my husband is out of town this week which make the perfect opportunity for me to play, play, play.:cool:

So I'm trying to get my stamp room all organized so I can just sit and create.;)

That's too funny! I am now finished at my program at the hospital so my stamp room is ready to receive me and my great ideas.

Also, we're getting a new furnace installed today, so can't go out anyway. Maybe I'll actually get something done in there.

BRRRR! It's a little chilly just now, but will get better, I hope. At least fireplace still works.

We got our new furnace a year ago (first week of Nov). I thought I'd freeze before they finished up the installation process! It was so cold in the house. Then they had to wait for the inspector to come to approve and inspect the gas line. I was never so happy to see an inspector. I was snuggling cats and wrapped in blankets to keep warm until he arrived and we could finally have the heat turned on.:eek:

I'm crazed by the Haunted Shack stuff....just had to make one more thing before it closed. Thank goodness we are done with it, but it was soooo fun! Jennifer- how exciting about your new stamps, Barb-hope you get that furnace hooked up soon, Angie-lots of stamp time and no call outs, Julie-how fun for your baby's first Halloween.

I have 3 new Christmas stamps and a few sheets of new pp for Christmas. They are calling me, but gotta get the school thing finished first :)

Today is Gavin's party at school and families are invited, so that's where I'll be this afternoon. My friend and I hid ourselves in my craft room yesterday-I'm ready for a little card making break today. But, then it's back to work-I wrote out our Christmas card list last night and it's not pretty! (for me anyway-lots of cards to make!) Have a good day ladies!

Woo Hoo.. It's at Meijers and right before I have to go and talk to the evil empire! I hope this one goes good too. I may have to choose between jobs soon and I hate that!

I also am gonna go buy my DH an anniversary gift today. I'm gonna get him a watch.

Good luck, Chris!

Everyone's organizing and cleaning their stamp rooms... I guess that means there was some serious crafting going on this weekend! ;)

I fed the baby a little Three Muskateers last night after her dinner. You should have seen the look on her face! LOL I am going to have to start recording those moments...her eyes got as big as doorknobs...she had the biggest smile! lol

I am hanging out with a dog that my husband brought home last night. Supposedly, this is a short term arrangement with his parents...but I don't think it is. He is the result of a divroce between DH's brother and his wife and I must say he is really good and so cute. His name is Winston and he is a shih-poo. No shedding, which is a bonus.

Anyhoo, I am making some Christmas cards for a friend of mine and basically finding 100 things to keep me from doing that.

Shih-poo....he should also be hypo-alergenic ;) We have a Shih-tzu.
