where has it gone?

So, if someone finds my will to craft...will you please return it...QUICKLY!!! I have a couple of ideas floating around in my head but I just can't seem to find the will to sit down and do it. So...I have nothing for you today. I'm sorry! I will, hopefully, have some time to craft today and will have something for you tomorrow.

In the meantime...Todd and I had an overnight away the other night and I had mentioned to him that I'd like to start collecting the Dept. 56 Dickens Village houses and accessories...not like obsessive collecting but a piece here and there. Where we went they have a Christmas store that we checked out the village pieces at and guess what? Yep, Todd got me one. He got me the newly retired Victorian University (at 40% off...woohoo!) which fits well for us since we live in a university town and since we have a son in college. Neato, huh?

I hope that you all have a super Sunday! See you tomorrow!

I have some of that Dept 56 Village stuff. As far as stamping - just get out yer Stampin'UP Catty and copy-cat something in there :) If that doesn't work...then go buy more stamps!! ha ha ha ha

OH, that's SOOO NEAT!! :) Does it have a light inside that you plug in and lights up? My MIL got us a little set of snowy church and a couple houses before the store closed. Now I can't find the line anywhere, but I love putting them out at CHristmas time. Well, you enjoy it. It's very pretty.

I cleaned my craft counter off yesterday and it feels so good to sit down and stamp. I actually cleaned it all back up too, so it's ready for next time =) YAY ME! lol.

So not like stamping,eh? ;)

I think those villages are adorable. My Mom's friend has a HUGE one, and it's awesome. I could totally see myself getting into something like that if I had a place to put it.
