Lazy Sunday Afternoon

Why is it that on Monday mornings at work I have a ton of energy, and I think to myself, "When I get home, I am going to stamp and make cards, and send one to everyone I know and love, and then I am going to work on my round robin art journals and get completely caught up and then work on a new project, and yada, yada, yada." "Oh, and I am going to completely clean and organize my house, and keep it that way!" "Oh, and I am going to the gym and watch what I eat so I can become a size 10 again!"

I probably have all this energy on Monday because I spend most Sundays in "silent monk mode." I laze around the house, watch some TV with Mike, take many naps, read books, read magazines about stamping and get great ideas of what to do, look in my stamp room, feel overwhelmed by all the stuff in there, and just fritter away the day! Fritter should be my middle name!

See the picture above, that is not one of my dear little cats. For a picture on this blog entry I went to Google images and typed in Lazy Sunday Afternoon. This is one of the images that popped up!!! It fits!

The main way I fritter away time on Sundays is by surfing the net. So, in an attempt to make it seem like I am doing something productive, come along with me as I share some sights on the Internet that I think you will like!!!!!!

First stop on a Sunday morning is Splitcoaststampers. This is a site for rubber stampers who love to make cards. It is really the best site there is for stamping. Every Sunday morning they have a list of "favorites" from the week. These are cards that people have posted in the gallery and other members are now calling attention to. This weeks cards are AMAZING! Go HERE for a visual treat!

Next up is Television Without Pity. This is a great site if you want to read funny commentary about the TV shows you watch. I love to read what other people are saying about some of the outrageous shows that Mike and I watch.

Over the past few weeks I have found some AMAZING BLOGS! Talk about inspiration!!! and Eye Candy!!!!!

First up is the wonderful Under The Red Roof by the extremely talented Donna Layton. She makes the most gorgeous art!!!! and she is such a sweetheart to boot!

Another sweetheart is Ceri at Little Pink Studio.....You must see the picture of her studio on her latest entry. Yum! Enlarge that picture and tell me you don't just sigh with envy! She has an Etsy shop that is loaded with fun stuff too. And her banner!!!! So gorgeous!

Holly of Holly Loves Art has a blog that often causes me to have heart palpitations. Her art is so unique and SO GORGEOUS! Talk about inspiring!

And then I check my email every two hours or so (probably not an exaggeration!) so that keeps me tied to the computer. Today's email brought the news that my dear friend Trish has a new Flicker account. Her art looks fabulous here!!!!!

Oh, and then I can cruise through other peoples' books shelves on Shelfari!!!! That can really eat up the time. I love to see what other people are reading!!! (ETA: I cannot get the link right for Shelfari. The address is www.shelfari.com)

Okay, that is a sketch of my usual Sunday.....today I will try and do something a little different by watching the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Bears games with Mike. However, more than likely I will start watching and 5 minutes into the whole thing I will be asleep!!!

With all due respect to all of your entry, the most beautiful and interesting is Trish's flicker. Oh my goodness, how beautiful her work is. And to think, I knew her when. You gals should consider an Etsy shop. Awesome talent!!

What fun! I am "linked" to the web! I visited all the websites and even added Holly Loves Art to my daily hit list. I left a comment to her about her blog and named you and your blog as the little door to heaven! What a delightful way to spend a day...well maybe try and bust into that art room now and then.

Yes, I can understand all this "frittering" going around :) Fortunately "my frittering" has a time limit other wise it would be 24/7.

Thank you for sharing all of the links...they are very interesting places.
