1. I'm an over the top perfectionist! I say it's to a fault because I get stressed out when things aren't perfect.
2. I looooooooooove macaroni & cheese! Minus the milk and use real butter, yummy! It's a guilty pleasure of mine!
3. I collect pencils. I have near 6000 of them right now and my goal is to break a world record. I now have more pencils that the current world record, but I'm waiting to get a good number more before I go for it.
4. I have declared Spring, Summer and Fall flip-flop season! I had surgery on my ankle about three years ago so I can't wear any shoes with height and I hate tennis shoes and boots, so the minute the weather is warm enough it's flip flop season!
5. I talk to my cats! Well mainly just the one, but I talk to her like she's a person.
6. My favorite place to shop is American Eagle.
7. I'm insanely clean! Except when it comes to my stamping desk the rest of my house is normally immaculate. I get stressed when it isn't!
I'm tagging Jilly Dreadful & Melanie (Batgirl)
The finished book is 14 pages front and back. I only took a few pictures of my favorites.
I made the album for my mom and dad. Their 25th wedding anniversary was two years ago. I had made a cute little album for them which got ruined when I moved. So I figured this was a good way to redo it.
First I stamped the images on the background in different colors then I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder. The card opens up by un-tieing the ribbon. The heart and "1" were both made with my Cricut.

Well I got a hold of the Doctor and they said they could see me today if I was there in fifteen minutes. Good grief! Obviously I went. I found out the problem is not actually with my wrist, but with my Ulnar nerve (aka Funny Bone) in my elbow. Or so that is what the Doctor is speculating at this point. I have to have an x-ray done to rule out anything else and was given some pain killers. I was also told to relax it for a while. Kind of good timing since I am going out of the state on Friday. I have a lot to do the next few days so not being able to stamp will actually be a good thing, no distractions! I should be doing a lot of stamping while I'm gone, maybe even some of my first ever scrapbook pages! We'll see how it goes.
My right wrist hurts!
It has been bugging me for about a month, at least at the end of the day it does. When it starts to hurt I stop working on the computer and stamping, the two things that aggravate it. I put a brace on and wait till the next day to continue. But yesterday it started hurting around 10am and just got worst all day! That would be why you haven't seen anything new from me this weekend. By the end of the day it hurt so bad I had to take a Vicodin that was prescribed for something else. I couldn't sleep otherwise. Today I woke up and the pain is gone, but it is stiff and feels very uncomfortable. I'll be calling the Dr. as soon as the office opens.
If you don't see anything new work from me for a few while that is why. I can't stamp right now, I want to cry!
