Heart day...

Happy Valentine's day everyone. I don't have anything sweet or neat for you. I think Valentine's day is a big scam anyway. Although, I usually get my daughter something for the occasion I am not this year...she is going on a freakin cruise after all!!

I had stamp club on Saturday so my friend Linda, aka LGuild, was in town. We ran around before and after stamp club. She brought me my ATG tape and I now have 12 rolls of 60 yard tape so I should be set for quite awhile . I HOPE*okie makes a mental note to check on reorders when she gets to her last 3 rolls*! I also gave her the cartridges she ordered from PaperCrafting Pro when I did an order. I got two, she got five! LOL I didn't get much done at stamp club and didn't finish anything. I stamped some images and colored but I did more talking than anything else *okie knows this shocks everyone since okie is such a quiet soul...then moves over before the lightening strikes*.

I got my order from Consumer Crafts on Friday and WOW was that box heavy! I immediately put the cardstock away in the paper holders I already had labeled. I did make a layout last night but didn't get pictures to post for today. I thought I would use some of the new cardstock but I didn't.

I hope you guys enjoyed the blog hop. I have decided I don't think I am going to do anymore blog hops. I don't like the pressure, deadlines and I am lazy. I had agreed to do one in March but got a hold of them and let them know I needed to withdraw. You guys have no idea how much deadlines freak me out. I have been so use to doing things on my own pace in my life and my career that someone giving me a deadline is like putting a huge STOP sign in front of me *okie thinks she is so weird sometimes*. I also don't like having to work with themes. I guess I just wanna do what I wanna do when I wanna do it *okie wonders if that makes her a beech or just a free spirit*.

Not sure how much I will be posting projects before I leave for the cruise. Due to the bad weather we had I am going to have to work my hiney off at work to make up for lost appointments and I might not have time to do much crafting. And with that, guess I better get my butt in gear and get busy seeing my clients for today.


  1. Stamp Club sounds like fun. What do you do at your get-togethers (duh, stamp, I know), but like do you all bring new stamps or projects or is someone different in charge each time? It sounds like something I'd like to do, but wouldn't know where to start planning.
    Can't wait to see what you do with the new Core'dinations cardstock. I've been wanting some to run through my BIG SHOT. My LSS is supposed to start carrying it soon, but I may have to check the price at Consumer Crafts to compare.
    Have a great cruise.

  2. There is one woman who runs the club. She brings all the stamps, inks, embellies and some paper. Usually people bring their own paper though. Sometimes people have stuff they are wanting to make. We usually know in advance what kind of stamps she is bringing.

  3. Not a BEECH... I like FREE SPIRIT much better!!!

  4. I work best without pressure :D. I like doing challenges because I can do them or not. I like doing Guest Designer spots at TheBugBytes because it's pretty flexible and it's only once in a while. I still get a little freaked though, but as long as it's only a little I'll keep doing it. I only have three rolls of ATG tape, I need to place an order, but I don't use nearly as much as you do lol.

  5. I have a blog award for you over on my blog


  6. I am going to miss your blog. But
    I hope you have a great time.


  7. I think Valentine's Day is a scam as well. I don't want my hubby to be nice to me one day a year--he better be nice to be always!

  8. I missed out on the blog hop... I've been busy... and I don't think it's bad that you don't participate in the hops... I mean it would nice to be asked... (Nobody ever asks me) :o( But I also understand doing your own thing/theme... sometimes the pressure of knowing it has to be done by a certain time and only using a certain theme can make crafting harder than people realize... I sometimes work best under pressure but sometimes I have a hard time thinking up something to go with the theme/challenge too... Sooo I think your more a free spirit! :o)

  9. You make me so laugh. Thanks It helps me. Quick question. Were do you get your atg gun tape. 60 yds is great. i so need more asap. Thanks.

    I know exactly what you mean about v-day so I usually don't stress about it. The house is filled with way too many flowers right now! I don't like the stress of deadlines either, its easier being a free spirit whien it comes to your hobby/passion. Enjoy your cruise.

  11. I love your shirt! For Christmas, my BFF got me a blue one that reads "Paper Whore", because that's what I am! I tried to make that picture my avatar, but it's too large!
    Welcome to the Paper Ho/Whore club Okie!

  12. I feel the same way about deadlines...give me a mental block and then other things come up to prevent me from doing it until the last minute if at all. Sometime a theme helps. Good for you to do what you want when you want :D
