Forced to take a Scrappy Break

Hi Friends,

"Go to College they will be good they said."  But no one told me I would completely have to give everything up in life and immerse myself completely, lol.  Wow, this is only the end of week two and I have lost more sleep than I can tell you.  Burning the midnight oil for this paper or that reading or this assignment or that.  And every day the instructor adds two more things.  So just when I think I have a handle on things, bam, I'm late again.

I am in an accelerated (not a joke either) RN to BSN program.  No longer is 22 years of nursing experience and two certifications later enough.   The good news is that each class is only five weeks long.  I am sure once I get used to things and do not have to take a tutorial for this and a tutorial for that, things will go much quicker.  I also need to let go of the perfectionist thing too.  I agonized over the first paper.  I just turned it in at 12:21, now it's one a.m. and yes, I have to be up in four hours, lol.  I'm getting used to the sleep deprivation or I am just delirious.  lol.  It does feel good to hand in that first big project.

I just wanted to say to you all and let you know I miss coming to your blogs, but I will be coming around again soon.  I might have to miss this years Fall Coffee Blog but I will try to squeeze in some time soon for that if I can.

Thanks for checking in.....three more weeks to go!

Thank You For The Bacon

Hello Stampers and Friends,

I have been waiting for a free morning to use my Crazy Birds.  I just love them.  My Step Mother bought me the matching dies for my Birthday last month and I wanted to get them out and give them a try.  OMGosh I love the matchy dies!  I wondered how much white space would be off centered, if it would cut off the legs and feet or curly cue.  Nope,  it's a no brainer, perfectly aligns with the bird, I put a piece of removable tape on it and voila, a perfect cut out.  I love that.  

My Sister needed a Thank You card for a guy that brought her some most excellent bacon.  She is a chef so that is a perfect gift.  Fortunately, she brought it here! So it was most excellent.  lol.  My Muse is Jenn Shurkus from Creative is hers.
