Well after a full week of being up every night for 2-3 hours in the middle of the night, I finally slept soundly last night. From 8:30-6:30 and I feel completely rejuvinated. It's amazing how just that little interuption each night makes you feel simply awful, but today I am energized and ready to get some stuff done! How am I ever going to handle those nighttime feedings?!? aaaacckkk! BTW, I am feeling the baby every day now...it is so incredible and it seems so early to already be feeling it. I hope that doesn't mean a big baby! LOL!
I did find a little bit of time to create in the last few days. This is a layout that I did playing with my Stamped In Ink stamps. This is a very simple layout. It uses Scenic Route and then Stamped in Ink's sets: Elegant Pennant, Simply Put, and one of the custom stamps.
By the way, Scrap Happy KT is featuring Stamped in Ink all this weekend. They just got in a huge shipment of the gorgeous new stamps and will be featuring:

3rd Place- 1 Stamped In Ink stamp set of your choice.
Other than that, I didn't get anything accomplished over the holiday like I had hoped, but we really did have a nice family holiday with lots of movies and time together with the three of us.
Today I am creating for an article for an upcoming issue of Creative Cardmaking (UK). Then I hope to get a start on some Christmas projects that I need to get started on. I just got my DT box for the Cropper's Cottage so I am excited to get to work on that. Shannon outdid herself with the kits this month.
I am still without a camera and wondering how long I can put off that rather expensive purchase. I have put up my tree and would really like to take some pics because I have done some different things with it, but would rather spend the money on family this time of the year.
