Not My Favorite Couple of Days...

Although I'm kind of glad that the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over, the last couple of days pushed me almost beyond my limits. The hubby and I were headed up to pick up the kids after they'd spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa when I was rear-ended. It was a very slow moving accident and no one was hurt (at least not either of us). Two witnesses in the oncoming traffic said the lady who hit me appeared to have her head down as she was moving, possibly on a cell phone when she obviously couldn't see that I wasn't moving anymore. Her very little car ran under my bumper...Between insurance companies, auto repair shops (my car wasn't driveable- they said she pushed my exhaust system into the driveline) and rental agencies, I'm pooped and don't want to have to wait around for anymore calls ever- at least not til they tell me my own car is ready for me to pick up! Needless to say, not something I ever want to do again...

On a much brighter note, it's reveal day at Sketchabilites. This is the last reveal for 2010, which sounds awfully weird! I really liked the sketch, but I wasn't sure I was too happy with what I created til it was completely finished. I really like it. I got a giant pack of chipboard numbers from Tuesday Mornings and for the life of me can't remember what brand they are, so if you happen to know, let me know please!

Here's Karan's sketch...

And my take (and my handsome birthday boy!)

All materials Jillibean Soup with exception of chipboard numerals and Tattered Angels mist

I'm working on a couple other projects right now, but I've been really tired at the end of the day this week. Mentally exhausted, I suppose. I think I'll see if I can stay up to watch a movie with Paul since the kiddos are down.

So glad you stopped by!
~Til next time <3
