It is official - I don't have room for any more stamp stuff. I have reorganized and tried my best to find a place for everything and there is no more room. I can't buy another thing. Unless...I could move the loveseat out of the room and get another shelving unit. Then I couldn't watch tv at night in there but I could watch in the living room I guess. Thoughts to ponder.

Dh has refused to go to daycare. He truly seemed surprised when I said he couldn't take care of himself and needed more care than I could give him.  He said "I can take care of myself and get dressed". That, however, is not true so that tells me how unaware he is about what goes on. Don't know what we will do now. Keep on keeping on, I guess.

I tried so hard to make cards today. Everything I did was not good. I imagine everyone has days like that. I wasted a lot of paper and got frustrated. I have a stamp that says Easter Blessings. It is red rubber and I put that on the block and took it off and stamped it over and over to get it straight. I could not make it stamp straight so I used it like it was. I really tried to make it work. The card I'm sharing now is for my oldest grandson. Very simple and male like except for the sentiment. It is all Lawn Fawn. Be kind to one another.

  1. What a cute card. I'm sure your grandson will love it!

    I hope your situation improves soon and your DH agrees to go to daycare. Just take a day at a time and remember to look after yourself too. xx

  4. Yeah...we all have those days when nothing goes right. Try another stamp...just so you don't get frustrated. Sorry to hear about DH...my husband too has a lot of issues. I block it all out by either making cards, or putting my ear plugs in, listening to music or going on Pinterest and facebook. Sometimes carrying his burdens along with mine is a bit too much. That is where God comes in.....if we let him. He takes care of the problems we can't deal with.

    Cute little card for your grandson. You are blessed to have family and grandkids to direct your frustrations.

    OH and we can NEVER have enough stamping stuff LOL.....You should take a picture of your stamping room......so we can see what room you have....sometimes more eyes and ideas are better then our own. My stamping stuff is in the basement....so I still have room to expand.....although now I have enough....I shouldn't want more except when Stampin up comes with new stamps or dies that is. Have a good day.

  5. Darling card, Brenda! You could enter at CAS-ology which is about to close. So sorry hubby won't agree to Day Care, but maybe you could approach it as a just for a day & then go from there. Sending hugs from Oregon!

  6. Sorry to hear that your hubby doesn't want to go to daycare. I know you had high hopes. Give him some time, he may change his mind. Love your card for your grandson! The CAS ones are always hard for me. I love those sweet images. HUGS!

  8. The image is so cute, but not so cute your grandson will be embarrassed. (Teens are funny creatures). I have frequent days as you described, when nothing I do works like I wanted, or I get something the way I wanted it, and then add one 'other thing' and mess it up royally. This card looks just perfect. Sorry to hear the balking situation, but perhaps if you could convince him to go for just 'an hour or so', while you do an errand? Then stretch it out? Don't tell him it's day care if that will work. I hope you can get a little respite so that you can rest. Will be saying a prayer that it will ease up a bit for you. I don't have any more storage room either, but I keep finding things I want! Take care of you too, and TFS & Hugs. (DH was better next day, thankfully)

  11. Oh Brenda, I was so wishing he would go to day care! I think you need to talk with your children and you guys need to come up with a plan. You just can't go on doing for hubby all by yourself. Which is hard on you as well. If there can't be someone to come in and relive you then he will need to go some where where he can be looked after around the clock. I'm feel you because there is no easy answer. Yes, we all have times where we just have a hard time making cards and the stress in our lives doesn't help any!! Your room sounds like my room only I don't have a love seat in my room. lol But it is full and I don't NEED anything else, but you know the wants. I've just got to curb those darn wants! lol Your card is adorable and I have always loved that sentiment, so I think your grandson will too, he just may not admit it. lol Big hugs, Brenda
