Why is it so hard....

For me to get to the post office?....it seems a completely harmless place, and mostly good things happen there, however I can drive around with mail in my car for a week or two before something finally makes it on it's way to it's destination...


I finally got my ATC's (the Heidi Swapp ones) and my tags (for the fiskateer swap) in the mail today...neither one is late, I finished them both more than a week ago and then drove them around in my car until today when I finally made it to the post office...I promise not to do this with the ATC swap that I am hosting...



I am getting better...think I've downgraded to a cold or seasonal allergies at this point...still have a nasty cough, but I'm getting there...thanks so much everyone for checking up on me and leaving me such nice messages!



I've been pretty busy working and working on finding another nursing job, I'm supposed to go talk to someone tomorrow, so we'll see..



I only got a couple things done at the CKC crop, I ended up just doing the daytime one and leaving the night one shortly after it started..


I made this Clear Scraps Mickey Album for a class I'm planning to teach in May..probably May 10th


Don't you want to sign up?


and I finally got this album done from an online class I purchased from Heart in Hand Scraps a month or two ago...if you haven't been there, they have really awesome and very reasonably priced classes...






I'm going to fill it with pictures for my Mom for Mother's Day and I think I'll probably make several more, for Mother's Day gifts as well...


and today after work, I got this done...This was Ann's idea (SBF owner) she had a class idea to string cookie cutters together and use them as a door hanger so she gave the cookie cutter set to me to see what I could come up with...I don't think the picture does it enough justice, and I think I need to tie some Rafia in between , but I think it turned out pretty cute... the outside of the cookie cutters are altered as well, but you can't see it either...guess I need to sharpen my photography skills..


and that's all I have for tonight...I really have to go make rounds now and see what you have all been up to.

Haha, so funny about the mail. I finished the ATCs for the swap about a week ago and have yet to get it into the mail too! I hope to get them out this week.

You've been quite a busy bee Ma'am...Everything is sooo cute*!*

Glad you're feeling better...hope you've learned your lesson:

NO MORE licking public bathroom door handles for you young lady*!*

The cookie cutters are too cute! Glad you're feeling better! I got my ATCs in the mail to you yesterday (but don't feel bad, I JUST mailed out the CHRISTMAS gift for my brother in law's new wife, and found out yesterday that they're getting divorced, so I should have waited a couple more days:).

Angel Gurl said...

wow you are a busy woman. Love your Micky album very cool.

Rita said...

Glad you are feeling better Amy. Love the cookie cutter project and your Mickey album. I avoid the post office too...it seems to ALWAYS be busy and when you're standing in line with one, two or three kids...it's not much fun! :)

My ATCs will be on their way to you today or tomorrow! Thanks again for including me in the swap!

Glad you are feeling better. Your Mom will love the album you are going to fill for her. Robin did one for us and it is one of my prized possessions.

"and that's all I have for tonight."

Goodness girl, you talk like you haven't just mentioned 50 million errands and shown us a ton of gorgeous projects. I am amazed at your energy level...even when you are feeling sick!!! You rock!

...and once again, I am laughing at Dianna's comments. smiles...

Kathy said...

WOW! Look at how busy you have been. All kinds of scrapping goodies to share with us. Everything is super cute!

I know what you mean about getting to the post office. I have gotten better about it though, because I mail all of my bills from the post office. I don't like putting mail with money included out in my mailbox in front of the house.

Those nasty coughs just hang on and on don't they? Hopefully soon, it will be gone too.

Take care!

I definitely have a hard time making myself go to the post office!
Glad you are feeling better.
Love that cookie cutter idea, I may have to pick some up if they appear in the $1 spot again. Great idea!

Kitty said...

We all do that 'forgetting' to post things don't we? Glad to hear you're getting out and about again. x

The cookie cutters look awesome. And I totally agree about the post office. I usually do that too.
