Having a sister is a very good thing...

I haven't seen my sister since Christmas Day. We have spoken many times since then - via cell phone, email, what have you - but we have not spent any time together since December.

Today, we had a "Sister" day. On a whim, I suggested we try out the card making class being held today at Right at Home Scrapbooking. Amazingly, both of us had the day free. This doesn't happen often. More often than not, we try plan our days out together weeks in advance, but not this time! We heard about the class about a week or so ago, and somehow we were able to make it happen (thanks God!)

We met at the store at 10 a.m. and got to work. We made five adorable cards - not sure if I can post them since they are copies of the instructor's work. We both learned some cool new techniques. Can I just say that heat embossing is the bomb? What fun that was!

After class, we headed to Quan's Kitchen for some yummy Chinese food and even better conversation. I really enjoy hanging with my sis.

To top it all off, we headed to JoAnn Fabric after lunch. The JoAnn Fabric store in N. Attleborough is huge! It puts the Swansea store to shame. There was so much to see and most everything was on sale. And yes, I bought some stuff. But I needed it. Really. And my sister needed all the stuff she bought too. Really.

After dropping my sis off at home, it was time to head back to my crew who was eagerly awaiting my arrival. A trip to the mall was in order, so back out we went.

It's been a long day, but a very good one.

Thanks for hangin' with me today, sis! Love ya.

As promised

As promised back on February 4, here are some pics of the pages I have done. So far this year, I have done 16 layouts. Not great, but not bad either.

A Day Off

I have today off from work. I don't know what to do with myself. I think I will use the time to indulge in my hobby. Several hours of uninterrupted quiet - it's like a dream come true.

Hopefully, I will not squander the day away surfing the net or gasp! doing something responsible like housework. Heaven knows the housework will still be there ready and waiting regardless. I hope to post some of my creations later today - putting this in writing will "force" me to follow through.

Wish me luck.
