Happy New Year!

All my good intentions for crafting last week were derailed by a nasty bugSmiley from which confined me to the couch - couldn't go to bed, because I couldn't breathe when I was lying down, so I ended up sleeping in the recliner, fortified only by Alka Seltzer cold and Robitusson. Yuck!!
So 2010, eh? Millan.netDoesn't it sound futuristic? I also spent quite a lot of time last week watching Dr. Who on Netflix, so I am currently somewhat of an expert on futuristic. Given the mad dream I had last night, I obviously need to watch something else because apparently the combination of Daleks and cold medication is not a good one! Smiley from
I also managed to read the new Stephen King novel "Under The Dome" which my DS gave me for Christmas. It is a MASSIVE book - over 1000 pages - but I do love me some SK, so I was up to the task. Not one of his best, IMHO, but still very readable. All in all, it could have been worse.
We typically host a party on New Years Eve, but in the circumstances (and in the interests of not infecting the whole neighborhood) we kept it to a dull roar with only a couple of our closest (bravest!!) friends. Champagne and fireworks and the chance to have actual conversations with people made it a rousing success. I might just do the same again next year. It was much easier to clear up later too.
In other news, I finally made it back to the craft room today. I was finishing up some Valentines for OperationWriteHome. Lounging on the couch for a week also gave me lots of time to blurf and I found some really neat free vintage images at The Graphics Fairy, which inspired this card. If you like vintage images you will have a field day looking around this site. This was one of my favorites, don't you think it just cried out for some Basic Grey and some lace?

I also want to apologize to all my bloggy buddies at Ocean's 11 because I have neglected them all (and this blog) terribly over the last couple of months. I'll be back visiting and commenting, I promise.

So Happy New Year to all of you out there in blog land - it's my sincere hope that 2010 will bring you all what you hope for. Smiley from

Hope you are on the mend. Wow, daleks, I haven't seen Dr. Who in years, but that brings back memories. I once made my brother a huge, long scarf like the one Dr. Who. Anyhow, good for you for making the Valentines for OWH.

Kay - hope you're feeling worries about us O'11ers - life sometimes gets busier than expected :)

Love the vintage valentine! That's one style that I really like, but often avoid b/c I'm not sure I could make it work. You sure did!!
