Bye Bye November

well, thanksgiving came and went.  mine was absolutely fabulous and i hope yours was too.
i gained 2 lbs... but then the scale fluctuates.  i still want to lose another 5 lbs and hopefully by xmas; then i will be a very happy camper with no fear of gaining 5-8 lbs over the holidays because i'll still be right where i want to be.  we shall see.

i'm still reorganizing and cleaning out my stamps and dies. it's been hard work.  hard by.. do i or don't i discard this or that?  yay, nay!  omg!  the decisions.  if i haven't used a stamp in at least 2 yrs, then, it's going into a package for a friend.  if i have enough of what i'm getting rid of, then i'm dividing it between 2 of my crafty, close friends.

at the moment, my fingers are black from cataloging (yes, i do that as i go along) and sore from all the paper.  i've already gone thru a tube of hand cream!!!!  but, trust me,  it IS worth it.

need i say that i have not done any creating at all???  good thing i have a huge stash.   so, here's one from my stash...

i LOVE those crazy birds!
cut the oval, cut out the bird and used one of my
many santa hat stamps, cut it out and placed it
on his little bird head!  added some sequents and
badda boom, badda bing!
super cute!

well, today is sunday, the last sunday of november.  it's been a great month.  

i closed my twitter account.  i cannot figure that thing out at all - not to mention it's nothing but doom and gloom and politics.  oh, and you know me, i get wordy and 147 words is not enough for me for one post!  i'll stick with FACEBOOK!!!

anyway, happy end of november.  now to get the christmas decorations out and let the parties begin!


  1. I love your card- going to have to CASE it! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I was at CDH with my Mother. She is doing well now, came home on Friday. I have to get through my stamps..... Oh boy, what a job!

  2. What a fun card Stef. I love the crazy birds.
    Sounds like you are being very organised with your stamps - I need to do something with mine because I know I have certain stamps but just can't find them LOL
