I will survive!  I think that is a song and I’m hoping it’ll be my story as well.  As many of you know, Adria torched my camera and I’m still without a working digital camera.  I resisted the siren song of a digital camera for years.  I had bought one about 5 years ago and used it for one vacation and really didn’t see the advantages of the thing.  In fact it was a pain as the batteries kept dying!  I loved the color of my SLR Canon and while I spent a small fortune on Kodak and Fuji film, I just said "NOPE, no digital!"  Well, last year, I was lured into buying one and I’ve found that really liked it.  Now that I’m without it, I feel completely lost.  So, if my scans are bad, it might be the camera. 

Adria is living like a monk.  Nothing digital or electronic until after Christmas!  I even confiscated her digital camera.  Long story there!   So I still have posting abilities, just using a basic Kodak Easy Share.  (Nice camera for a teen and the money!) 

I’ve got a baby shower to attend for a third shift co-worker tomorrow morning.  Here’s part of our gift.  Denver and I voraciously consumed the Pirouettes that came in this can.   We were more than willing to do our part for the team.  I simply recovered the can with Close to Cocoa DSP.  Stamped tissue paper to match and made several thank you cards for the mom-to-be. 


  • Stamps:  Bundle of Joy, So Many Sayings (Hostess Set
  • Inks:  Basic Black, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa

I was hoping to share several scans using the new Embrace Life that I’ve created for my upcoming Stamp in the Mail but for some reason Miss Ella is squawking and needs to be put back down.  Nite for now.
