I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate all your comments, emails and phone calls that I received today.  Thank you all so very much for your concern and well wishes!  Trust me when I say that I actually feel better at this point in time than I did a couple of months ago.  Hell, I even feel better than I did a month ago.  Hopefully I’ll keep on this pace and will eventually feel like my old BAD self!

Guess what?  I finally walked into the studio today.  I’m surprised that the carpet wasn’t wet from the recent storms.  I just knew that I was going to have a mess on my hands. Actually, the only mess I found was what I had left out the last time I was in there.  You know, I’m starting to think that I’m just not happy with the layout of the studio and that’s why mojo is in hiding.  As organized as I can be, I’m just not able to make this space work the way I want (or need) it to.  It bugs me!!!!  I would definitely entertain offers if any of you wanted to come help . . .  You know we would have to stamp to make sure the setup works!

I started before noon today . . . that was really good for me!  I tried and tried to color some new floral images I’ve received, but alas it never worked.  Around 1:30 I ended up throwing everything in garbage, turned off the lights and walked upstairs for some lunch.  By 2:30 I was snuggling in for a little “after lunch” nap.  A sad thing is what was too only be about 30 minutes turned into a couple of hours.  But I did awake feeling refreshed with a few ideas running through my head.

Now my mother has been hinting that she could use some cards, but she can’t get anyone to make her any.  Duh . . . She has specifically asked for some with Max in the martini glass and of course she always loves anything with Millie.  I pulled out both stamps and decided that maybe some humorous and fun stamping was just was I needed to get me over this hump.  Oops, I said hump . .

While I was visiting my dear friend Tex last year (actually we were working the San Antonio Show with Rubbernecker).  Oh this is a good story!  Me, Bev (“Tex”) and Joan were all going to work the San Antonio show for Rubbernecker.  Dave a/k/a Mr. Rubbernecker, was driving all of us to the show and just about the time I saw the Salado sign, I yelled for Dave to pull off at the next exit.  With Bev and Joan in the back agreeing with me (and might I add, laughing the entire time), Dave pulled off at the Salado exit.  We directed him to Stamp Salado, still not telling him what we were up to.  Suddenly it hit Dave what was going on and while he was pulling in the parking lot, he was dying that his truck and show trailer were pulling into ANOTHER stamp store!  Smiley from millan.net  He did walk into the store with us and spent just as much time as we did walking around.  So the point even mentioning Stamp Salado was that I picked up the sentiment stamp that I used today . . . from Deadbeat Designs . . . “Whatever Makes Your Wild Hair Blow.”  It was perfect and a must have!

So, Millie has a wild hair today!  It’s a perfect Birthday card for my mother to send to one of her lady friends.  I even stamped Happy Birthday on the inside and on the back (another new stamp I found recently) Hand-stamped by an Art Floozy! Smiley from millan.net

It’s been a few weeks since I have been able to do the Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast. Even though I have some errands to run and more organizing to do (and of course, I can’t organize until I run the errands) I needed a little fun stamping. I just couldn’t help myself!!

Today’s challenge is to make a Christmas card that would be easy to mass produce and would require little postage when mailing. So, we are talking about a card with limited layers and virtually no embellishments. I so wanted to do this challenge – we all know I love ribbon, brads and all the layers. Today I kept the card simple. Sometimes I just need to do this to get my mojo going.


I started with a white card and added one layer of Memory Box Holiday Greetings Designer Paper (which you can find here). I stamped the image of the cowboy in Brilliance Graphite Black and then colored with Copic Markers and used different Jelly Roll pens for the light bulbs. The sentiment is raised on one corner with a small piece of mounting tape, just to make it even with the image.
