I'm back but....
Struggling with my stamping. I have lost my stamping mojo or it may be I have just replaced it with the NEW frenzy to reclaim my house and declutter it. In the past couple of weeks I have taken on installing new outdoor security lights. I knew my years of being in the electronics business would come in handy:). I have braved a weakened roof to clean the gutters out. I have had a new hot water tank and furnace installed just in time for snow fall. It looks like tomorrow I will be taking on my most dreaded chores of raking leaves because a landscaper that has promised over and over to do them is a no show. The thing I am finding most irating since the death of my hubby is promises by people to show up to help and they don't show. I just don't get why people would bother to offer if they are not going to show up. I finally have cleaned out a space big enough to pull my car in the garage, something I have not been able to do for years. I have new garage doors coming on Tuesday. I originally had hoped to wait until spring to get them but opener is shot and since my doors are wood and newer ones are steel, opener is different and price was right so I should be locked in for the winter. I also in addition to working full time, have managed to do all the yucky probate paperwork in the last two weeks and switch over titles and stuff. I just wanted to share with all my loyal blogger friends what I have been up to.
Now the card! I can not for the life of me sit down and create anything. I am struggling perhaps because of guilt about all the other things that need to be done first. This cute turkey is a real old Penny Black stamp and saying is from Judith. The background papers are actually paint chip type samples that I swiped from a counter top dealer at a local Home and Garden show. I wish I could get more, super neat texture and crinkle pattern to them. The turkey was colored with Copic marker, After stitching around edges, background was mounted to a piece of country blue card stock.
Any one have any ideas to get my mojo back? What does everyone do when they get in a horrible slump? Quick before I sell all my stamps!
Enjoy your evening and thanks for hanging in there, only wish I had more to share with you all, I could take pictures of my pretty new lights!
