What a day....

What a day I had today. We've been having problems with our refrigerator and after having the repair man tell us that a special part needs to be ordered (a week wait, by the way...) and replaced, we transferred all our perishable items into our refrigerator in the garage. (Thank goodness for a back up refrigerator!) This afternoon I decided I was going to make tacos for dinner and proceeded to carry in some items from the garage. One of the items I grabbed out there was our salsa. I carried several items inside and proceeded to place them onto our dryer in our laundry room which connects to our kitchen. After I got inside, I proceeded to move the items from the laundry room to the kitchen counter to start cooking. The last item was the salsa. Unfortunately, my hubby had NOT CLOSED the cover properly and the glass jar slipped out of my hand and onto the floor. I tell you, it looked like someone got MURDERED! There was salsa alllll over my slacks, shoes, socks, the floor, walls, washer and dryer AND the folding ladder that we keep behind the door. As I proceeded to wipe it all up, I noticed that it had even splattered UNDER the folding ladder. Needless to say it was not a happy day:( Things got a bit better however when I checked my e-mails in the afternoon and found one from Stampington and Company. I enjoy getting their newsletter and seeing what's new and on the horizon. I glanced at the upcoming issue of 'The Stampers Sampler' and did a double take. I knew I sent in a holiday inspiration card for their challenge awhile ago, but vaguely remembered what I did. So to refresh my AGING brain, I looked thru some photos I keep on file and low and behold, YES, IT's MY CARD that is on cover A!!!!! It's a Prima doll stamp image by Julie Nutting. I love, love, love her new doll collection. Please vote for me (COVER A) if you will, I would be ever sooo grateful. (Here's the newsletter site for you to cast your vote. All entries must be in by Aug. 14th.) Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend everyone! BIG Hugs, Debbie


  1. Debbie,
    So sorry about the salsa murder!!!!!! OMG, what a mess I know! you poor thing. A small jar suddenly looks like 5 gallons! Boooooooo!

    Ohhhhhhhhhh congrats on having an opportunity at the cover Debbie Dear! I went straight over and voted and you did not have to tell me which was yours. I KNEW! Perfection and I can only hope you will win!!!!!!!!!!! It deserves to win! It looks fabulous!
    Keep us informed ok?

  2. Great little box! Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog.

  3. While that salsa spill surely made a mess, you must be relieved that your fridge issues were sorted out. A fridge is a must in every home, and not having a fully-functional one is a nuisance. Hopefully that's the last problem you'll have it it for a while.
