I know, I know....I haven't been blogging much. I have to learn to blog first thing in the morning and just 'git er done'. I so admire those of you who blog every day and STAMP every day. My gosh!
I haven't been stamping this last week as I wanted to finish my Granddaughter's afghan (poor kid has been waiting on this for over two years)...and I finished it last night!!! That's one of this year's goals crossed off my list!
The colors are bright!!! But, this is what she chose. She will be excited that I finally got it finished!
This year, tho, I have made up my mind to broaden my horizons and do other crafts that I enjoy, too. Not that I am giving up stamping or even putting it on the back burner...NO WAY.... I just have so many things I want to do and accomplish this year and this is the year I am going to try to do more 'firsts' for me!
I have always been a bit of an adventurer, but as I have gotten older, I seem to have got stuck in a rut, so I made a list of things I want to TRY to do this year and for things that I already do, like crocheting, knitting, reading.... I want to try to take it up a notch!
Now I am ready to begin another one. I saw a really cool afghan photo, online, and would love to give it a try.
Is this gorgeous or what? We'll see if I can add that to my list, as well!
I really need to get back to some stamping this week!!! I just received my TAC order and am really anxious to make some samples using the "Butterfly Swirls" and "An Udder Birthday" stamp sets.
Maybe I'll get to that this weekend in between cleaning my stamp room AGAIN and catching up on other things around the house.
I have my Stamp Club on Wednesday and we are going to make......what else.....Flip Flop books! I am sure you are getting SICK of me talking about them, but they are just so dang fun to make.
Then, on Thursday, a Funshop where we'll be doing a bookmark and a spring card using the two new stamp sets I just received. I am looking forward to that.
Oh and have I mentioned that I am reading TONS and TONS this year so far!!! Reading has been something I have always enjoyed, but this year, I am trying some new to me, authors and trying to reach my goal of 100 books read in a year. It's been fun! I can't believe how many authors are out there...let alone BOOKS!!!
If you have never been to fantasticfiction, and you like to read, you have to go check it out. I could spend HOURS on that site. And, of course, I love going to my library, online, and browsing and requesting books. That way, all I have to do is just go pick them up. I save time, right? WRONG....cause once I get in there....I just HAVE to look to see what else is available.
Spring is just around the corner, so don't forget to turn your clocks ahead tonight.
We just got our seeds from Gurney's and are anxious to get them in the ground. But, that too will have to wait a little while longer till the temps warm up a bit and DH gets the raised beds built.
Have a fantasTac weekend.
