The topic: Yay. me!

----------------------------------------------

After the back incident, I wanted to make more cards (for the store) and I just kept putting it off.  I was having the hardest time getting motivated.

A couple of weeks ago I pulled the files I wanted to use. I imported them into to my Silhouette Design Studio. And there it sat for a week or so.

And then it was really hot. I mean, I couldn't move a muscle hot because I knew I'd melt.

Then we went to a movie. Most certainly didn't want to get everything laid out, then leave. It was always something.

This past week, I finally pulled the paper. Well, most of it. Brian asked how I was doing.  "Um...."

Thursday afternoon, I finally got started. I cut out one set. I'd only planned on doing two of each card, but I cut out four.

Then yesterday, I cut out enough for sixteen more cards!  I need to cut out envelopes for four of them, but that won't take long.

The last set I cut out was the most involved. I kept pulling more paper. Last night, around eight, Brian laughed at me when I said "I'm almost finished" because he was watching television and the machines were going. I asked him why he laughed, he said 'you've been saying that for the last three hours". 

I did two more pieces of cardstock and I was done! I put everything away and now, everything is ready to assemble. Except for those envelopes.

But I'm pretty happy I got it done.
