A Little Merry

It's been some time since I've put a blog post up.  We have everything ready to start building our house which will begin within the next 2-3 weeks.  The weather has been rainy so the final details needed to get the land ready have been delayed.  Since everything has been delayed I've felt like I'm in a weird limbo.  I can't start the big "pack up" too early because we're still living here after all.  I'll have 6 months once that basement is dug.  Logically I know I should be doing it right now though.  I hate to get comfortable playing in my stamp room because that's the first place I need to "weed out".  Yikes 

I've been thinking about making Christmas cards...heck any kind of cards really.  I don't know if I can commit to making all of my Christmas cards this year but I might as well start and see where it goes. I fell in love with this Mo Manning digital image.  What I like about her is that she can represent any season as you can color her any number of ways.  I used Copic Markers and colored pencil for shading in spots.
