2009=So Far SO GOOD! LOL!

A couple of months back, Kristi Ferro, owner of Hanna Stamps emailed me and asked if I would be interested in being the Guest Designer for January. THUD! (that was me falling off my chair) Uuuuuumm, YE-AH! When I received the stamps I was giddy with excitement....They are so FUN and Cute!!! Do you want to see more sneak peaks?? Click here for links to the rest of the Hanna Design Team. Sneak peeks all week. They will Knock Your Socks off!!!! Then there will be a big release party over at SCS in the Hanna Stamps forum on Thursday night! Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret...Use the coupon code SUPPORT when you place any order at Hanna Stamps for January to receive 10% off EVERYTHING. Ok, so it's not such a secret...but don't forget! You can use this coupon code until the 31st.

Today, the kids are finally back to school! lalalalalaaaaaaaa....It's the Most Wonderful Time of The Year!...lalallalalalaaaaaa! Due to that ice storm and the holidays they have not been to school since December 11th. DECEMBER 11th! Don't get me wrong, I love my kids. But it is not our normal routine for them to be home all this time. They get bored. and I get crazy. Orla, God bless her, talks A LOT. And is always asking questions. Lot's of questions. I suppose we could go out...but then that infuriates Declan. For example, we went to a birthday party at the mall last week. (Build A Bear) Declan hates the mall. If he is near any of those neatly folded piles of clothes he grabs them and throws them at one of his sisters in protest. Then he takes off and throws his shoes and socks in protest. Then anything else I may have hanging off the jogging stroller (which he occupies). Like all the coats, hats, bears, hand bags, sodas.... Then he screams and slaps his forehead like he can't believe he has to tolerate this excursion to the mall. A high pitched screech. Whenever possible he tries to grab his sisters and slap them too. It's all so delightful. So when the kids are out of school we spend much of the time at home. Of course, he is getting so bored that now he has been doing things at home just to be a booger. Like opening the clothes dryer and taking all the clean clothes out and throwing them around...not so bad until something lands in the dog food/water...or the toilet. (my washer/dryer is in the bathroom). Or he has taken to sneaking upstairs while Maeve is napping and tuning on the light and jumping in the crib with her. She screams. He giggles. Those two get along pretty well, so I am not sure if he misses her and wants her up...or what. But it makes for a very unhappy Maeve and Mommy. Declan loves to swim. Loves the pool. However it VERY COLD here! But Declan has been digging out his bathing suit and insisting on wearing that all day. He even goes to get a beach towel! A few days ago he went and dug out my flip flops, removed the slippers from my feet and put the flip flops on me! He's pretty persistant! I could list several more of Declan's little things....but I will leave it at that. I just didn't want you to think that I HATE my kids being home....it is just very challenging here when they are. I am sure they will be home again in the near future, as more bad weather is predicted. Yay!

Anyhooooo, I will be back tomorrow with a sneak peek Riley Moose...so tune in! And notice how close my blogaversary is....some special blog candy might be in order real soon! ;)


Have a Magnificent Monday!!

Congrats you stinker!!! You are one popular stamper these days!

My oldest goes back to school tomorrow so he's at home with me today. The rest of the crew went back (whew). I know exactly how you feel...love them to death but not used to being home ALL the time with them, takes some getting used to.

Very cute card! I'm playing with my first set of copics, hoping to get my others this week.

You poor thing. I can't imagine going through all that. You have a lot more patience than I do. Glad you're getting a little break!

Pia said...

Kerry,

I am so excited about your Guest designer spot!!! You deserve it.

First I love your card. Second I almost cried for you when I saw the delay posted on the news today. Third, thanks for braving the mall to come to Lucas' party.
I was not home nearly as long as you and I had enough last week! The kids need their routines as much as we do.

Stevie Merryweather said...

Very cute - she looks like she's enjoying her stuff!

Anna Banana said...

Hi Kerry !!
CONGRATS! I'm so happy for you!
Must be so much fun to be on a design team! Maybe I should try for that this year!

ANyhow - I LOVE that card you made (I wanna be where she is) and my favorite part is the hand drawn birds you did - really makes the card!

No surprise you'd be picked girl-- look at this card!! EEKkkkkkk--- it's so cute-- love all the elements, the texture, the fun colors!! Love it all!! (I love your kid stories too!! My house if full of craziness and mayhem, and it's nice to have the kids back in school where they will tire themselves out, but I love every minute with them too!)

Crystal said...

I totally agree with you regarding the kids...LOL
I only have one at home now...and it seems to be challenging at times. And don't let me go to my studio to wrrk on something...she's right behind me wanting to make something too.
I spend all the time helping her and I don't get anything done at all that I had planned. Oh well....but I still love her to pieces.
Great blog!!!!
