Squeezing in this blog time ~

Ahhh ... I miss this! I know it's only been a week since I've been here but it feels like forever!! lol I started a part-time job and have been getting long shifts ... it's more like a full time job. I wanted to get a job to get out of the house and have a little extra spending money but I didn't realize I was going to get that many hours. I haven't had any designing time at all this week. :-(

Luckily I have a few things on backup but I really miss working on new stuff. I'm also squeezing in this post because I have to work tomorrow and have a few things I need to get done. I hope I can handle this!!!

I did have the weekend off and my daughter and husband came down. We went for a nice walk while the guys kayaked down a creek beside the path we were walking. Well, sorta kayaked ... lol. The water was sooo low because of the lack of rain that they spent alot of time dragging the kayaks over rocks, beaver damns and low areas. It was a 4 km. stretch and not a bad walk but the guys were exhausted by the time they were done. They actually at one point had to drag the kayaks on the path to find a little more water ... lol.

One of the things I've always found fascinating is Japanese and Chinese symbols. I think they are just sooo ... artistic and unique and interesting looking. So this is what went into LLL Creations Dollar Mart today.

Japanese Symbol Stamps -
12 transparent symbol stamps for only $1 - get them HERE.

The below layout shows one for size on a 12x12 paper.

had a good amount of water in it ... lol)

These stamps can be used for all kinds of layouts~!

I hope you continue to stick with me ... even though I'm not going to have as much time as before I am NOT giving up designing ... I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE ... because it is what I love to do~!

Hope you have a great week~! As usual, I love to read your comments ...
