Sign of Life/ein Lebenszeichen

Yes, I am still alive, though not really online a whole lot due to continuing computer issues.

Ja, ich lebe noch, auch wenn ich nicht wirklich online bin auf Grund von Computerproblemen.

But less online-time also means more creative time....

Aber weniger online-Zeit heisst auch mehr Kreativ-Zeit...

This is my latest post on the my StampBox-Blog.

In diesem Monat war ich beim my StampBox-Blog dran mit einem Show-and-tell...

For my show-and-tell I want to show you a few party invitations I made recently. Much to my distress, I am turning 40 this year. But, I am not all gloom and doom. My neighbor convinced me that the best way to get over feeling old was to throw myself a party. So... that's what we are going to do: a dinner-party for my family, neighbors and close friends.

Für mein Show-and-tell zeige ich Euch Party-Einladungen die ich vor kurzem gemacht habe. So sehr ich es auch nicht wahrhaben will... ich werde in diesem Jahr 40. Aber, so ganz in Trauer versinke ich nun doch nicht. Meine wunderbare Nachbarin Linda überzeugte mich dass der beste Weg sich nicht so alt zu fühlen wäre sich selbst eine Party zu geben. Und so soll es sein... ich gebe eine Dinner-Party für meine Familie, Nachbarn und enge Freunde.

I wanted to make simple cards because I wanted to make different cards for everyone. These are a few of the cards I came up with. I used Stampin'Up Cardstock, different scraps of Basic Grey Pattern Paper, some chipboard numbers, some ribbon, and of course my trusty MyStampBox stamps. The stamp sets I used are "Kicher, Seufz","Kleinigkeiten"
and "Roadtrip"

Ich wollte einfache Einladungskarten machen, denn ich wollte unterschiedliche Karten für jeden machen. Dies sind 3 Beispiele der Karten. Ich habe Stampin'Up Cardstock, Reste von Basic Grey Papier, einige Chipboard Zahlen, etwas Band, und natürlich die MyStampBox Stempel. Die Stempelsätze die ich benutzt habe sind "Kicher, Seufz","Kleinigkeiten"
und "Roadtrip"


Come on over

It's been quite the Road Trip


Have a good one.

The weather calls for this:

But I'd rather have these!

Aren't these the most beautiful shoes?

Have a good one.

Peekin' in... or out?

Still no new computer for me. I am going to take my laptop over to a friend's house to see if he can salvage anything. Keep your fingers crossed, please.

We are in the middle of a snow storm. No major snow accumulation, but very windy.

And just so this post is not entirely without pictures... Trouble #1 had a birthday a couple of days ago. She turned 10, if you can believe it. And she was grumpy and wouldn't cooperate when I wanted a "happy" picture of her and her birthday cake. Oye... is she already practicing the "sullen teenager" mood?

Have a good one.
