My Digital Studio Christmas Card

Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio allows me to create my Christmas/Holiday cards without having to cut the card stock. It's great! I am sometimes overwhelmed by all of the cardstock, punch and embellishment choices. I made this card using MDS this evening and later tonight or tommorrow, I will post the actual card. The digital card took me about 5 minutes to put together.

On another note, it has been raining all day. I have finally completed the literature review for my thesis - all 25 pages. I don't know that I could look at it again. Tomorrow is my last day of classes for the Fall Semester. I am looking forward to a break from my evening classes. Hopefully, I will have one more semester because I am not sure of how much more of this I can take. I would like to be able to spend all of my additional time on creating scrapbook layouts and holding workshops.

I am now off to write a lesson plan on Ancient Greek contributions to modern society...

Thanks for taking the time to read and allowing me to share.

How much do I love My Digital Studio??

Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio arrived this week. Here's the problem...I can't stop playing with it. I must admit that when I am not writing lesson plans or grading, I spend every waking minute on my computer.

I am the person who will spend hours on a simple layout. With MDS, I am able to create a layout, preview, and edit before I begin cutting and adhering paper. MDS significantly cuts down on the time it takes for me to create an original layout. While I am not an expert yet...I though I would share a very simple layout of my beloved JuJu. This Christmas will be my second holiday without her.

My camera broke

Argh, it's the holiday season and I am without a camera. What am I to do? Today, I visited Adam's Fairacre Farm for their annual holiday events. I was accompanied by my eight year old cousin, Dylan. All I could think of were all the moments I was not capturing with my beloved Canon digital camera. So, I may need to forego a couple of lunches and trips to Michael's over the next couple of weeks and purchase a new camera.

Since I don't have any new pictures to post, I thought I would share a couple pictures of ny beloved best friend JuJu and my brother's dog, Roxy the Destroyer.
