Happy New Year

Well...where to start? First let me say THANKS for all the kind comments and get well wishes! I am finally feeling better and my ears finally popped just 2 days ago!! It is wonderful to hear normally again and NOT hear myself chew! I soooo enjoyed my quiet time while Shawn and the boys were away! I ended up not stamping very much! I cleaned my house from top to bottom the first day...I know, not really fun but it felt sooo good to get it done and be in a clean house that wasn't immediately being messed up by little kiddos! Then I watched some movies, laid around in my jammies, did some shopping and did a little crafting on the last day! I took some pictures but they didn't turn out...which brings me to my next thing, the reason I have posted so little! My camera is dying! It is dying a slow death. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't...when it isn't working I get pink tinted pictures.
I did get these pictures this morning and they aren't too horrible. These were gift card holders I made for my brother and his wife for Christmas. I found the idea on Andrea's blog. It slides open to the side and the gift card holder is on the inside...I didn't get pictures of the inside cuz my camera quit working! When Kailee went to Seattle she called me one day and said "Mom, Aaron left his gift card holder here!" I said "Oh good bring it home with you...I forgot to take pictures and now I can post them and hang them on my board!!" Otherwise they would have been in the garbage!
Anyway...I did spend most of today stamping and so I am crossing my fingers that my pictures will turn out and I will have something new to share tomorrow! I have been chatting for long enough! Have a good rest of your Tuesday!
chat at ya later!

I am the same way when I clean. I want to enjoy it for at least 24 hours before it's destroyed again! And it's just me and DH, so far!
