Post 334 & How To Tell That You are Really Loved

Discovered tonight that I missed noticing that yesterday's post was that yummy number 333 so I have decided that today's 334 just has to be specially noted!

Now how to tell you are REALLY loved! From personal and very RECENT experience it is quite simple - first have partner/husband/lover (I really do think of Joseph as all three!) go away for two weeks to care for a close relative who is post-operative, second, book his return plane ticket as he is temporarily living without the internet and then third, listen for the love and understanding when they get to the airport and ring you to tell you that they have discovered that YOU have booked their flight TO the city they are already IN and that there are NO seats on the plane back to where YOU ARE! Hmmm, not an example of me at my best organizationally speaking and thank goodness there was a flight with available seats the NEXT day! Guess what I was doing at 7:15am Sunday morning - yep, I was at the airport and looking VERY awake even if it was sleep-in Sunday! And seriously, I don't think I would have been so understanding and loving!!

And now to some arty news - the wonderful Suzanne from Oxford Impressions has recently started a blog and it is a beauty! She really is as wonderful as her wonderful rubber stamps (which I just happen to own as a complete collection) . And today I received a complimentary copy of the latest Stampington Take Ten magazine which spotlights Oxford Impressions and the "Country Girl" plate of rubber stamps. I have one little piece included so I'm very happy! Here are a couple more pieces of Country Girl art made using Oxford Impressions stamps of course.


I'm off to Esperance tomorrow for work for a couple of days - think of me breathing in some sea air after all these months inland - I won't even care if it is windy and wet!

Oh Debbbi, you must have felt sooo.... awful, still it can't be as bad as the day I shaved my OH's head without the cutter on the clippers and gave him a bald stripe up the middle of his head , oops.. !!!!! he had to be completely bald for weeks, and he was doing a race on the next day, so no hiding :-)
Fantastic pieces you're showing here, love the chickens, but then I would wouldn't I.
Congrats for making it into the magazine, your piece is gorgeous.

Oh, Debbi! Clearly you were really wishing he already there with you? It's an easy mistake to make.

Congrats on Take Ten! I'm off to check out Suzanne's blog, now. Thanks for the link.

Oh dear, Debbi. I would make an aging brain-related comment, but your little oops sounds too much like something I'd do, and besides we've got to be close to the same age. So I'll just offer my condolences instead and compliment you on your lovely work. Nobody's perfect, after all.

After the giggle...
I have been drooling over this plate for a while - I think giving in will occur very soon.
And could you please mail me your snail mail addy.

Hi Debbi, I'm loving what you're doing - and big congrats on Take Ten to boot. I reckon you should clone your Joseph, just to share him about with other careless stampers who leave their husbands stranded all over the countryside. What a gem he is.
