Anyone else happy that it's Friday??
After the week I've had, I am soo relieved that it's Friday. Also very relieved that our electricity is restored. That's right . No electricity for 6 days. We had a terrible storm last Friday, and I mean terrible. I have witnessed severe storms before, but none to this caliber. No exaggeration here.
I was scared. Huge trees fell, completely uprooted, and fell onto cars and power lines. Our area was hit hardest, unfortunately. We couldn't leave our property for a couple of days, as the roads were blocked by fallen trees. No electricity, no internet (ack!), also means no cooking/baking, and probably the worst..no hot water...EGADS!!(we're 5 in the house, that includes 2 teenage boys--need I say more?!) But it could have been worst for us, which thankfully it wasn't. Not so for many of our neighbors.
Anyways, I am relieved that our electricity is restored so I could submit my card for Unity's Friends with Flair challenge. Yippeee!! :) (Pretty much the only challenge I am entering this week!)
Without the power this week, I had to be super inventive with activities for my 3 year old. One of them was that we stamp images and we color them. So, I pulled my large bucket of Unity stamps (I did not realize that I had THAT many!! It doesn't help that Unity has awesome sales!!) and looked through them for ones to stamp and color. It was quite fun. While she stamped and colored away, I decided to make a card for another one of my online friends.
This one is for a gal pal of mine whom I met through a scrapbook website...and Boy! is she talented, and quirky, and ...I just *heart* her so! Seriously! She's always there to give a quick word of encouragement. She's awesome! So, this one's for her, and I already popped it in the mail. I certainly hope I have the right address! lol That would stink if it went to someone else, no?
Anyways, have to finish this off. I have a TON of laundry to do, among other things! yuck! ;)
Be safe. Get crafty.
