"I'm not lying," he demurs, "I'm being economical with the truth."
I let it be since, natch, it only follows that I can use the same expression regarding craft supply transactions.
It didn't take me very long to pop the train off the tracks this morning, did it? Let's start over.
Today I'm combining two posts. I'm playing in two challenges, but unlike the usual course of events, this time each has its own card. I'm putting them together in one post because, to my way of thinking, you shouldn't have one word without the other.
I have all these great family name stamps from Hampton Art Stamps that were perfect for this challenge and that fit perfectly stamped in rainbow colors along the side of the card base. I rummaged through my alphabet stickers and found the perfect stickers to "match" the fun stamp designs of the words. I wish I got paid a dollar for every time I use the word perfect in one paragraph.
It was a rough go those first two decades, but then I met the Mister and his family and my family blessings haven't stopped since. The blessings grew with first our son, who then brought us a daughter (-in-law), and then they doubly blessed us with their two sons. And let's not forget all the four-legged pets and frogs and fish along the way. As if that weren't enough to be grateful for, twelve years ago, I reunited with my brothers and sisters after being apart from them for forty years.
Your family may be traditional, it may be non-traditional, it may be your friends, or it may be your pets, but whatever it is, it's good to be reminded once in a while not to take them for granite and to express your gratitude, like this maybe, with Prismacolor pencils:
