Nothing but trouble

with our internet these past few weeks. I've called MTS a million times, we got a new modum, a new router, had MTS come in and put a main filter on our phone line, ran malware software on the computers and it's still not where it should be at. We are sooooo frustrated so I'm going to call Computer Remedies again (hopefully they aren't getting sick of me).

Hopeing this post will work. I've tried a few times but just can't get it.

On a happier note now that I've vented (thank you for listening by the way :) ) I have filled my Christmas card classes and some have asked for a 3rd. We'll see.

A few things to share, (of course only if this post actually gets into bloggerland)

Coasters for a friend of mine. She always hosts our book club but doesn't have any coasters for our wine glasses so I made her a set. Hope she likes them. The main image is a retired set, Garden Collage and then I added some swirls with the Baroque Motif set. I stamped them with stazon and then colored the image with my blender pens and craft ink. Next I baked them for about a 1/2 hour in the oven at about 300F, and once they cooled off I clear coated them. Sounds like a lot of work but not really.

I've had some time to scrapbook lately but the mojo is just not there, I think it's been too long.

I did finish one layout for my scrappers club this month, very simple because like I said, no mojo. I used pp from the Cast a Spell package, so cool. I just can't decide on a title for this one, so it's still missing, it'll come yet. lol

So what was I doing instead of scrapbooking? Making this

Is that not cute? I saw it on a blog when I was blog hoping (instead of scrapping) and thought, I could make that. It has 6 little envelopes in there. Just too cute.

I plan to make myself scrapbook more the following weeks so I get my groove back. It's been a long lonely summer for my scrapping supplies.

I really like your layout, Anne and those coasters are gorgeous (I'm sure your friend will love them!!) And that purse is super adorable-- I could see making something like that for Sage, but with paper inside to draw/write on!
