I like to do inchies (little one inch pieces of art) and haven't done any in ages. So I thought I'd make a few. But what to do with the little one-inch wonders? I thought I'd make them in a series and put them into cards... These first few tries I was quite happy with. They are very fun to do. Having a 1" punch sure helps. Now I can hardly bear to throw out scraps unless they are less than an inch.... like I need one more reason to hang onto anything! If you haven't tried making inchies...please do...they are really fun!

Some cards I made a few days ago with those new stamps I keep talking
about. They are clear stamps you use on acrylic blocks, those seem to
be all the rage right now. I do like them because you can see where you
are putting them on the paper since they are clear. That's kind of nice,
really, not so much guessing and hoping stuff is where you want it.
Sometimes that's not as much of an issue, but getting that cat to sit on
the "dreamer" word just where I wanted was sure a lot easier than it
would have been with a wood stamp. And Sharon will note I'm still using
my Stampers Anon. checkered stamp... an all-time fave! (a little private
joke we have).

Here's my photo of my yummy lunch today at Tommy's Pizza.... double cheese and pepperoni! I'm submitting my lunch and some wishes on the Journal Revolution blog by Linda Woods and Karen Dinnino. Their books are awesome and the blog is such fun. And they sometimes have fun contests. Gotta run... it's a 'working at The Container Store' night for me.
-- I didn't eat that WHOLE pizza by the way... I was sharing with a friend!

Here's a little card I made last week entirely on the computer. I like the look of it, the silhouette of the bird (that is actually a font, believe it or not). I found a lot of really cool, free (the best part) fonts on a site called Dafont.com. Check it out (but only when you have a couple of hours... it's very addictive!

Taking care of poor little Parker
this week. Sunday night at midnight
(Monday morning) I took him to
the emergency hospital at OSU
because he had a blockage and
couldn't go potty. Fortunately he
was a candidate for a special study
they are doing for that very thing.
He came home on Tuesday since
he was doing so well and I'm giving
him medicine 3x a day. He seems
better but is still having troubles and
isn't eating or drinking as well as I'd
like to see, but sometimes progress
is slower than one would like. I sure
hope he gets better, he's such a
sweet cat and only about a year and
a half old. If you're inclined to say prayers,
say a few for him or send him good

Please watch this...it's a bit older than the bit he did last night, but it's a riot if you've ever gotten frustrated with your computer... who hasn't? He's dressing more mainstream now as well, but he's every bit as funny as ever.
