Happy New Year! Stampin’ Up! Occasions and Sale-A-Bration are here!

A new year has begun, Stampin’ Up! has released their new catalog (s): Occasions and companion Sale-A-Bration.  The new catalogs are awesome with some exciting new products to spark our creativity.

Over the past month I have been silent.  Life kind of gets in the way of blogging and I discovered writing a blog is like everything else that we do, it becomes a habit and just a few days away and it has become a habit NOT to blog!

However, that said,  I have a wonderful excuse.  I had several cards made ahead at Thanksgiving, all ready for my anticipated 10 days working at my regular job (RN).  Over the past two years I have been semi-retired working two to three days a week.  One of the nurses where I work was going to be out for surgery and she asked me to fill in for her.  I had anticipated being able to do her job working just three days a week.  It didn’t happen!  I barely got it done in five!  And a couple weeks in December I worked six days.  Long hours,  lots of  steps and paper work.  Not to mention that I drive 35 miles to and from work!

There is no creativity left in my tiny little finger after a 10 hour day + plus drive time!

Okay, my whining is over,  actually, I have to say I am not whining, just thinking in awe of what I accomplished this past December!  But it was crafting or stamping for sure!  I love being a nurse, every day I work is a blessing,  some days more of a blessing than others!

Tomorrow I will begin to blog again two times a week,  Tuesday and Saturday.

I hope you will check back often.  If you sign up with your email addy on the upper right to follow this blog you will get an email every time that I publish a blog.

Happy Stampin’   and  Many blessings for a wonderful and successful 2017!

    • Thank you Mary! I missed being part of our team. Today that nurse asked me if I wanted her job! She is Assustant Director of Nursing and quite possibly Director soon. I immediately told her It was fun but I would not want to do it all the time.
