December Dirty Gallery and Updates

Okay - I realize that it's been FOREVER since I've posted a thing here to my blog.  The reason is just time.  Several things have occured since my last installment, not the least of which was our MOVING!  That's right, we're now getting settled into a new house that I just adore.  It's not permenant, but for the next year at least, we're making ourselves at home, and after I get all of my craft stuff out of our friend's house and over here then that process should be complete!  I'm  so going through stamping withdrawl, even though I've no time to actually DO anything!  Maybe it's more the SEPARATION from my crafty things that is getting to me!  LOL  Can you believe that I actually had to BUY a card the other day?! 

Another big thing for me is my taking a break from MFT for this new term.  I should be back at it in July, but due to all of the other things that are going on, I just needed to step away from that DT requirement.  Kim is so awesome and saw that I was sinking a bit, stamp-wise, so she gave me that option.  I'm still (of course) on the SCS DT (Dirty Dozen) and that won't change till April 14th, when my term is up and I become an Alumni.  Oh yeah, and I forgot to tell you (in case you didn't notice ;)) that the December gallery is up, and you can find it HERE.

So, as you can see, blogging has not been real high on my priority list, with everything that has been going on.  I've sort of taken a non-scheduled and undefined break.  However, I'm HOPING that that will change soon and my mojo will be back up and running soon, now that we're in our own space. 

I'm ALSO hoping to get back into my quilting.  Dave spent a lot of time getting my quilting frame (that I got for my birthday in April) put together for the first time last night.  So now, I'm itching to get a quilt top done so that I can play with my new (enormous) toy!

And now I leave you with one of my template projects that I made for Christmas (and didn't make it to the DD gallery).  I filled this with books, and will be giving this to an 8 year old boy.  He loves to read.  The template came from PTI and the PP is from Cosmo Cricket.

Till later!  Hope you ALL have a wonderful Christmas and (if I'm not back before then) and Happy New Year!!!



  1. May things settle down and you can scratch those itches!!! Take care and know that we are here anxiously awaiting your next MFT Installment!!! Blessings to you!

  2. Hi Kirsten,

    I love your organizer, what a cute idea! I've been experiencing a Stamping Withdrawal too-for other reasons I haven't been able to get to my things. I really enjoy looking at your work though!

  3. I do think so. I really love the color. So cute!

  4. I haven't stopped by in awhile but I hope you enjoy your new home! I couldn't imagine not being near my stamping stuff!


  5. This is very top quality article. I see your views as logically and intelligently presented. I concur with a lot of what you have written in this article. Thank you
