Slow-down Day

YEAH!!!!  Got the Storage room all cleaned out, cleaned up and things put back in where they belong.  One whole side is totally empty, waiting for Christmas and seasonal decorations, and there is still a half shelf on the other side of the Storage unit, so as I clean out under the stairs, the stair closet and the office, I have places to put stuff.  So, since my Stamper's 10 group meets tomorrow night, I need to get the stack of stuff by the stairs that goes out...up the a fairly leisurely day.  If I get it all done, will start on under the stairs!!!!  It was sooo..... dusty in there...I sneezed all day glad that is all done.  Found some of the weirdest things.  3 boxes of partial packages of craft things.  You know how when you get supplies for a craft project, project calls for 3 of something, but it is only sold in a package of I had 3 boxes of excess STUFF....was too lazy to find it's true home...that needs to stop!!!!  Then found our first Early Digital Equipment Notebook....Nick will get a kick out of that...told Steven to put it on E-bay. 

Lets do some cards!!!!

This first one is from last months' Stamper 10.  It uses the Tap Dancing technique...and I think everyone really enjoyed it.  I am starting back up a Technique Club, in the fall, and this is something we would do in that.  We learn a technique each month, make a page for our technique book, and then make a project with that technique.  Have a wait list started....will contact everyone sometime in August to set it up.  So if this is something that interests you, let me know.  Cost will be $4.00 per class!!!!  Such a deal. 

This next card is the last of the projects that Joan had us do last month at RMI.....Love this card!!!

And finally one of the swap cards I got last month at RMI.  Carol did this card....great colors!!!!

How about a recipe.....Made this a few weeks ago....I t makes a huge batch, so we had it again a few days later, and I cooked up a few chicken breasts and diced them up and added to it....was really good, so I would add the Chicken and make a full meal of it!!!!
