Since I seem to given up even trying to stamp this month, I thought I would show you something I received in the mail this week. My friend Tracy Tripp sent me this altered tin and altered tic-tac box. Such a cute idea! She used a rub-on on the lid of the tin and DS papers. Its really cute! Thank you Tracy! Your card is cute too but I forgot to take a picture of it!
I am dealing with some undesirable womens health issues an its sucking the life out of me right now. I am not sure when I will stamp again. I still have not even finished my christmas shopping. I have never waited this late before. I am in a panic for sure! Yet here I am posting online instead of shopping! Gotta run!

My daughter is joining the Race For the Cure run here in Austin Texas and is looking for donations. Here is the link to her schools donation page. Click on the link and look for the donation tab. I am very proud she is taking this on for her school.

My god daughter, the daughter of my best friend from high school, has fallen in love with a religious fanatic that talked her into dropping out of college and running away to marry him. He has isolated her from her family and told them not to try to communicate with his wife for a period of 3 months. I guess that's the standard amount of time it takes to brainwash someone. I don't really know. I do know that her mom and step dad are completely devastated, hurt, angry, scared ect... I don't think this is a decision that is good for an 18 year old to make. Especially one that has never had to work a day in her life and barely just got her own bank account. Unfortunately she gets to learn the hard way about life now.
Anyway, there is not much I can do to help her at this point, I am just beeing a supportive friend to her mom and seeing if I can help her in any way what so ever. My goal for the week is to stamp atleast twice. We shall see if I can still do it! *sigh* I gotta get over the blues soon or the guilt over my stamping supplies is going to kill me!

I stamped the greeting on the inside bottom flap.
It was hard to see so I bent it back to take the picture, opened it up so you can get a better look.
Here is a side view. This is not an original idea. I spotted it on a blog and I can not find it again. If this design layout belongs to you, please take credit for it because I will never find it again. Thank you.

On Friday I went to Archivers and took a class on clear, acetate card making. We made 4 cards while we were there. I was originally supposed to take the class with my friends from SCS Brenda and Rea Anne but life got in my way and I had to re-schedule during a different time. I was very sad about that because I love to take classes with my friends. Anyway, here are my samples from the class.

I thought that since tonight is the A Muse Austin shoebox swap, I could post my doorprize project. It is a tea tin decorated in the A Muse Kitchen collection papers. Inside holds a couple little prizes for the winner. After I made it and filled it with my prize I decided it wasn't enough so I dragged out my B-I-A and made a little notebook to go with it. Now I am satisfied! I haven't shown my swap card, its actually a card I have made before only slightly different in order to accomodate 20 duplicates, I discovered I didn't have enough paper to make 20 and it was too late to order more. OOps! Procrastination is never a good idea.
