Sorry Diane for being a pest... just don't like the last minute rush especially with doing buffalo in a month.. With this snow storm coming, Iam sure all of us will be working on our swaps...

No stamping for me either this weekend. DS and DIL and family coming in for a baby shower I'm hosting. My FIRST grand baby!! LOTS of cooking and prepping here.

Hope to tackle some swaps come Monday though.

Woo hoo! I have my first shoebox sample done! Now to cut paper and die cut. Cute and simple...at least I think so! LOL!

It was just a regular snowfall here in Rome. DH plowed this morning without any problems.

Well, I've done nothing. Is this a surprise? I've got all next week. Just finished up the Artisan Embellishment class last night, so I can move on.
Oops, I forgot (again) about the downline meeting on Friday at Melissa's, 'cause everything is designed for it. That first, then shoebox projects.

I may have a door prize for you, Diane. I'll take a look when I am packing.
