Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge....and a bit of Blabbering.....

Warning: The following post has been fueled by several cups of coffee Smiley from and a day of at your own risk....bwahahahaha!!!!

Good day! I'm sorry I haven't been around this week, but we have been busy farming - not Farmville or Frontierville - but real actual farming lol!!- combining beans to be precise, and since my son has gone back to school I am doing the go'fering this fall - you know - go for this, go for that it!

This week's sketch challenge at Waltzingmouse Stamps was a fun one and quite simple!! I used my Nutcracker Sweet stamp set and some Making Memories Christmas paper. I also was able to work in the Musical Backgrounds stamp set - absolutely love it!

We would love for you to join us for the 16th sketch challenge! You could be a Top Mouse!

Today, I took the day off of farming to go to Kraftin' Kimmie's First Annual Krafty Day! 

It was a blast and I got to see so many people - my whooty friend Kerry (who met me at the door and saved me a spot - thank you Kerry -Smiley from - I detest walking in alone) whom I met at CHA and was thrilled to find out she was going to be here as well 

- also Andrea - who I kind of knew but really didn't (you know?) and now I do because she did two awesome make and takes and we were able to get in a few minutes of visiting Smiley from (since she didn't have her laptop- *grin*)  with Kerry and Kimmie, - great advice and fun times! - AND I found out that I think I am luvin' Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - I wasn't sure because there is so much colouring - but what a relaxing way to spend the day - colouring-- I mean really!!! 

Karen and Sarah were at our table and I got a chance to meet the awesome Amy Leggate from (Paper Romance)....... all fun!! 

Of course Scrappin' Great Deals was there with 25% off everything!! - so I had to get something - Sheila has the new October Afternoon Seaside paper pack in - woot woot - and since I am a paper was a given!!

So that is why I didn't get my post up this morning.....whew....

So sorry for the rambling - like I said - coffee, stamping and friends (oh yeh - maybe some food too..) a perfect day!!
