Boring Week?

This has been a boring week.  Well, I thought so, school went so smoothly, I had set up the full month of lesson plans for Buggie and even with having water flooding my laundry room downstairs from the ice maker in the refrigerator upstairs freezing up (wait I thought it was boring but now that I look back at it is has been far from boring!) he has sailed through without any hesitation. High School is so much easier than the earlier grades.  Baby Bug has been so sweet and all cuddly, even with her terrible two's attitude from time to time, still it has been an easier week than usual.  I have had a lot of allergy attacks, problems with my asthma and knees, and sinus (but that is my normal).

Today we made home made yeast rolls and cinnamon rolls, they were so good. I am pretty pleased with this  being my first attempt.  (Having an allergy to milk~dairy makes eating normal pretty rough.)  Monday we made homemade Hawaiian pizza.  Buggie gets to learn how to make home made meals, surprisingly it is not that hard to cook from scratch and it is a lot of fun! (I think)

Monday or Tuesday I will be getting my next order from Stampin' Up.  I can not wait, I ordered some stuff to make Valentine's with.  (and I am not a Valentine kinda gal)  Some of the cards and decorations that I have seen I can not wait to copy.

I am really liking my Big Shot, but I still love ALL of my Cricuts,  I like having something mobile so if I can not make it down the stairs I can have Buggie bring my Big Shot upstairs and I can do crafting without waking up Baby Bug.

A Sympathy card

I feel like such a bad friend.  My best friend, since 4th grade, father passed away a couple of weeks ago and I just found out Sunday:(  So I went to my stash and found a sweet stamp set from My Pink Stamper to use and some old paper from CTMH.  But I did use Stampin' Up ink (have I mentioned that I really love their ink)  okay silly me I had a bit of a struggle to get that stinkin' ink pad opened.  I was making it waaaayyy too hard!

Sunday we went to Hilltop Inn in Spencer Indiana to celebrated birthdays with my hubby's family.  It was nice since we got to take my oldest baby, her hubby, baby bug; along with hubby and bug.  It was nice to get out and be with them.  Although my knees were killing me, icy hot and heating pad and ice when I got home so I could walk Monday!  In that area my chest doesn't hurt from my asthma.  (Off my rabbit trail)  I made this above heart puppet for baby bug because for some reason she just loved the monkey that I made for her last summer and then the pumpkin I made for her in October.  I made it from foam and cut two hearts with my explore, glued it together.  I used my Crop-A-Dile II and some brads that I had got from JoAnn's a few years ago.  I love the face, it is Peachy Keen face stamp, they are so adorable!

Birthday Cards

Here are two Birthday Cards that I made for my Father-in-law and Sister-in-law.

 This one it an A2 card, I used CTMH Hats Off Stamp and Artiste for the card and sentiment.

This one is 6X6 with 5X5 insert of the reverse side of the paper stamped with CTMH December Stamp of the month.

Yes I am starting with Stampin' Up.  I need to order some supplies but first I need to save up a little bit of money.  With my kit I did order some inks and I must say that I really do like Stampin' Up ink pads a lot  more! :)   So that is a plus!  I have a couple of items that I am going to play with next week that I got with me kit.

This is only our second snow for the year!  We got around 5 inches.  Luckily my daughter had already decided to take off Thursday and Friday, so baby bug didn't have to get out to go to Nana's house in this.  I don't like the cold because it makes my arthritis in my knees hurt more and the smoke from peoples fireplaces and woodburner makes it hard for my breathing:(  It is time to get back to my wonderful chiropractor for acupuncture.

Enjoy the day!
