The festive season has begun! It's my favourite time of the year! (Well, one of them....) and what better way to celebrate than to send out some holiday cheer in the form of a greeting card??

So, if you want a Christmas (or Hanukkah! But let me know, because stocks are limited - lol!) card hand made by yours truly, post a comment here with your mailing address!

All comments will be screened.

Happy Holidays!!

I've spent the majority of my evening searching different German Christmas Markets and tours and flights that go there. I want to go!!! They all look so pretty and festive. I LOVE festive! Even though I don't celebrate Christmas, I love the festive season! It's so pretty and everyone is (usually) so happy. Lights are twinkling, the snow looks all crisp and clean.

In other news, I made an apple pie today! It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself! It probably needed a little more flour, and the crust (Pilsbury refridgerated crusts) wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was still good!! I'm going to make it again for Thanksgiving next week.

This is a weekend full of stamping (and cleaning of course!) Tomorrow, Suzie is having a stamping party at my sister's house (she doesn't have room in her apartment) and so I'm going to that. It's turned pretty much into my party, because the only people who are coming are MY friends, but whatever. It's not like I need any stamping anything, so I don't need the hostess benefits. Then on Sunday I'm going back to my sister's because she having a class (Designer Paper series) and I said a long time ago I wanted to go. Suzie wants to go to that one too, but I refuse to pick her up two days in a row at Yorkdale, which is fair I think. Ugh, it's so annoying when people don't have cars and they live in the MIDDLE of Toronto and is NOT easy to get to. I hate driving more than half an hour to get to someone's place. Of course there are always exceptions to that. But when people EXPECT me to pick them up (which Suzie does) it grates on my nerves.

Anyways, I'm off to bed. I'm going to Cora's tomorrow morning! Yum!!

I'm kind of bored right now. And it's mainly because I've felt like doing NOTHING all day. What's wrong with me? Why am I not more motivated to go out and DO something. I get like this when there's no one around to bother me. I guess I don't do well without people (read: my mother) nagging me. I should have mowed the lawn today, I should have called my grandmother, I should have gotten dressed, and yet, I've done none of that. We all deserve a day off now and then though, right? Although, I probably take waaaay more of my share of those.

Yesterday was good though. I woke up relatively early. I went and dropped of my swap application at Travel Cuts (I got an email from them today and now I have a TON of forms to fill out) and then I went to my sister's and I picked up lunch for us at Quiznos. I had a chicken mesquite sub and it was SO good. I don;t know why this one was so good, but it was. Anyways, my sister and I did some stamping. I designed my Christmas card for this year (I need to get them done early this year because I won't be bringing my stamping stuff with me to England) and I cut all of it. Next time I need to stamp it all and then put it together, but it's all planned (I made two of what I wanted - now only 15 more to go!) I figure I also need to make a few Hanukkah cards this year too. What with having to mail everything. Although, maybe I can just buy them??? We'll see. Anyways, I left around 6pm and came home.

I ate pizza (I also eat eat pretty poorly when no one else is around) and baked brownies (yum!!) and then watched the new 90210. I though it would be horrible, but it was actually pretty good!

I guess I should cut for spoilers... )

It's been awhile since I've updated and a lot has been happening!! Mainly all exciting though, so that's good!!

The main news first. In a nutshell: I quit my job and I've decided to move to England for a year. Woo hoo!!

I tried to get a leave of absence (well really just unpaid time off) for a vacation that I'm going on in a week, and they wouldn't give it to me, so I decided to quit. I've been wanting to quit for quite some time, I really really hate my job, so I really do not feel down about it at all. When I was arguing about whether I should quit or not with my friend Karina (who I work with - she didn't want me to quit - more about that later) she wanted to know what I would do instead. This is a few weeks ago. On a whim I said, "I dunno, maybe I'll move to London." And that idea stuck with me. It's something I've wanted to do for a number of years, and I feel I'm ready now to take the plunge and do it. So when I get back from my Hilton Head vacation in two weeks, I will start the visa process. It takes 7 weeks to get the visa, and then I have to wait until after the Jewish holidays, so I should be there by the third week in October.

A lot of people have said they'll come and visit me, I really hope some of them do come.


In other happenings. I saw Avenue Q last week here in Toronto. I didn't think it would be as good as it was in London. But it was AMAZING!! I got a good deal on a ticket ($30!!) from a travel website and decided to go by myself. I'm really glad I decided to go, it was fairly last minute....the cast was so amazing! I loved it. Loved it. Loved it!!

Today was an amazing day. Very busy, and I'm exhausted now and need to go to bed. But a quick rundown. I woke up early this morning (after going to bed pretty late last night - I was busy partying at Amanda's!) and I picked up Suzy (who's back from Oz!) at Yorkdale and we went to my sister's because she's having a stamping sale. She's selling off a lot of her stamp sets, ones that are retired, or extra ones that she had, and some other accessories and cards. So you'd be buying her used stuff (for the most part - there were some new things too) and with the money you spent on her things, you could pick out free product from the new catalogue. So, basically you're placing new orders and getting her old stuff for free, but it was set up the other way. Anyways, so she was getting rid of a couple of stamp sets and stamps that I use all the time and love. But since she won't have them anymore, I had to buy them for myself! So, I got two of her stamp sets, some ribbon, some single stamps, and some cards. Then from the catalogue, I got a new Christmas stamp set, gold ink and paper, a pen and a circle punch (1 and 3/4"). My Christmas cards are going to look so nice this year!! I can't wait to get the new things! Hmmm, I guess I'll have to make all my cards before I leave.

After the sale, I drove downtown and met Erin and Philina. We went to Centre Island and had a picnic lunch. It was amazing. We had a ton of good food, we tried to fly a kite, we went pedal-boating (well they did, I sat on a blanket and listened to music!) I would write more about it, but I am getting REALLY tired.

After the Island, I met Amanda (I was right by her place) and we hung out for a bit. We played Dance Dance Revolution, ate lots of food, watched the Olympics. Chatted. It was really good.

And the best part? Canada has (finally) won some medals! Including a swimming bronze about 2 hours ago. I saw it live and it was so exciting! Go Canada!!!

Good night!

Whee!
