Monday Studio and Life

Here it is Monday again.
It is about the only day that I can blog anymore.

Life is full and no we didn't get a day away or even a minute this weekend.
It was very full of life around here.

Lets keep fingers crossed for maybe this weekend some slow down time will come to us.

Today was spent like a mad woman sewing and stamping as fast as my hands would go.  I had stacks and stacks of special order Santa Letters to go out today.

I didn't think I would meet my deadline, I started in and didn't realize I was using the wrong stamp until a whole set was almost complete. Ugh...out came everything again to start over.  Luckily I did meet my deadline and all of them are in the mail as I type.

I have not been crocheting up anything in the evenings either.
Mary Kay Andrews put out a new Christmas book- Christmas Bliss,

and I couldn't get my hands on it fast enough.  I adore her books (except for the last few, sorry MKA) but this one is back on track and I am in love.  The first book I ever read of hers was Blue Christmas and I was hooked, I read everything she put out after that in record time.  With the few minutes I get in the evening I read and my eyes fall asleep as I am turning a page but it is so good I just can't put it down.  I can't read things in record time anymore, but that is okay because I want this to last as long as possible :)

Wrapping this up now and getting up to tidy the house before bedtime hits.
Happy Monday see you next Monday if not before ;)

Oh, your stamping mistake reminds me of sewing the wrong side of a fabric on a very detailed project. It wasn't until I was almost finished did I realize I would have to start all over. UGH

Happy to hear it all ended well. sigh

I got home from work and cannot accomplish a thing. Sure wish I could drink coffee at night...

I feel your busy around here, too!
Oh, and I want you to know that I love MKA, but I hated Spring Fever. But I LOVED The Fixer Upper.

Let me know what you think about her latest!
