Doesn't that sound like an oxymoron? Like auto pilot, a fine mess or adult male (oops - ha!) I had to say that cause I was making steak tonight under the broiler (not my favorite place to cook it) and I asked Jeff why he had not fixed the outside grill yet and Eric my only child, that I pushed from my tiny (back then) body 25 years ago says "because he is always doing chicken sh*t", then Jeff laughed and they high fived each other...well I never!!!

Okay I got a bit side tracked there, probably cause my sweet tooth is really screaming tonight and I can't do anything about it. I was gonna chew some gum today and realized it has aspartame in it and I can't have that...ugh!  Have you ever had a calm Christmas?  Even as Eric has gotten older and we don't have certain things to do it is still not calm.

But at least this Christmas you can get your Christmas cards done early and not be a frazzled mess. How about this cute one, I cased from a swap I got at Founder's Circle by Sarah Schueler (thanks Sarah!)

Oh and the cute photopolymer stamp set I showed you yesterday? We ran out! Can you believe it, it was very popular!  Stampin' Up! is getting more in but has turned off the item number so we don't create a big back order problem, so when I say they are don't walk to order.

Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in, I think I'll go brush my teeth.

I have a Stamp a Tag Kit class this weekend and this is one of the little tags they will make, I'll share the other stuff after class.

Tag for class
It uses the new Photopolymer stamp set called Endless Wishes, and I LOVE IT!!! Yep I yelled, this is my favorite photopolymer stamp set yet. I am a wood mount girl, but I must admit I like seeing through the stamp to be able to see exactly where it is going.  We need more of these! I know they are in the testing phase to see how popular they are and I hope this one sells like hot cakes.

Endless Wishes Photopolymer Set
Here are all the pieces, OMG! don't you love it? Here is the flyer to give you more information.

So one day down on the Fast Metabolism Diet...took me a bit to get the soup made, but I really liked it and I have quite a few servings to freeze for next time I can eat it.  The steel cut oats on the other hand, blech.  I like regular oatmeal so might need to eat something else for breakfast. Eric went with me to the grocery store the other day and I asked him what fruits he wanted and he said none...I get up this morning and he had eaten some of my fruit...ha! Looks like its another trip to the store.

Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
