Think cool thoughts........

How are you doing in the heat?
Well, this freckle faced Brit is coping....just!
Ha ha, apart from sending her laptop haywire whilst still dealing with jet lag!
Word of warning to all......don't fiddle with technology whilst your brain is still half-way across the Atlantic!
It also helps to remember "the safe place" you put your memory stick whilst on holiday
(yep the one that holds your entire digital stamp collection)
after nearly 3 hours of frantic searching and a ticking off from hubby for not having a back-up copy I finally had a "doh" moment and located it!!
(and yes I now have a 2nd memory stick)
Suffice it to say my studio looked like a bomb had hit it after the search
and having tried to work around the mayhem for a few days
the neat freak within could take no more!!!
I sit here with a smile......
all my stash is boxed, shelved and labelled
Now as the post title says ....think cool thoughts...
so what else could I make for my first crafting project but a
Christmas card!!!!
Little Elf Mim - Mo Manning
DP- Wonderland Paper Pad by Studio Calico
Flat backed Pearls
And the plan is to get back to regular blogging.....well that is after (or whilst if I don't get caught) I have stripped and repainted our patio furniture.
Let's hope I do a better job of the chairs than I did of poor Roo's* haircut.....or should I say "scare-cut" - she should be OK to be seen in public by erm August!
(*Roo is our West Highland White Terrier)
Well that's me done for now, off to start those chairs
Enjoy the sunshine, drink plenty of liquids and don't forget the sunscreen!

I like your thinking, I posted a Christmas card last week in the hope the snowflakes would cool me down, lol. Glad to see you back and there's no way I could image your craft room looking like a bomb has hit it.
