Peek at My Week


Here it is the final Friday of January 2016... time for another Peek at My Week.

This week has been an interesting one. It included two out of town trips to meetings. (I love meetings... so that was fun). However, it did mean I didn't get nearly as much done at home as I might have hoped to do. The floors need swept. The furniture needs dusting. The laundry is piling up.

And speaking of piling up....... when we picked up the two days of mail at the Post Office after the last trip, there was a PILE of it! That's partly due to the fact that I'm the current hostess of the Mystery Image card swap group and the swap is due. We are a small group now - 10 members - but we have a lot of fun. As hostess, I chose the image and stamped it and sent it to the other ladies.

This is the image I chose (uncolored, of course):





It's one of my most favorite snowman images - a Darcie's stamp.

So my mail has been overflowing with adorable-ness!



Of course I made a card, too. Here it is:








I've also worked a wee bit this week on the Stamp Inventory I'm creating in Evernote. Baby. steps.

I put together and mailed SEVERAL card kits (since I was behind in doing that)... and I created the three cards I still needed to create for previous commitments.

And I've worked on a conference that I'll be leading in a month.

Over all, it's been a busy and productive week... just not one that included housework. ;)

 SCORE TIME: Would I give this week a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”?

Jeanette--I love this card. The colors are perfect and I love your layers--as usual! Thanks for a fun image to color up and another great swap! I am glad your week was a thumbs up--but it would have been three or even four any maybe five thumbs up had you been in Wales on Saturday!!!!

First, any week that doesn't include house cleaning is a thumbs up in my book.
That image is adorable, no wonder you like it so much.
