The good mood is fading fast

Good day all.  Good mood - not so much.  I have wasted 4 solid days with labels.  Some were printed out months ago but the majority that I lost or transferred have been frustrating.  The colors are printing in awful hues when sent from the new computer.  I've wasted over $50 in ink and half a ream of card stock trying to correct the mess.  I'm done.  I have more blanks but I put them away.  If you are interested, check the Sampler Box page under my header.  I will open comments on that page for sales Thursday morning.  I may do more, but I really need to cool off.  The new tall oval is what I am interested in working with.  I would like to do strawberries for the top with simple alpha labels.  The photos were coming out weird when downloaded to the computer, Blogger wouldn't let me upload to post, and Picasa rejected half of them.  AUGH!!!  Some of the photos are a little off in color so if you would like another, just email and I'll take a few more.
 On top of it all, this is what I've been seeing in the mornings.  White crap.  And I was reminded of another reason I hate winter.  I'm nice and warm, a flash comes along and I become soaked, then I'm chilled.  Being wet in the summer temps doesn't cause a problem like the stupid fricking rotten frigid temps of winter.  But surprisingly, my mood really hasn't returned to the snarky wild woman my family knows well.  Really?  Anyway, I'm tired and going outside to burn a lot of paper and card stock, come in to a cup of coffee, and finally sit down to finish my wreath.  I'm glad I chose this design instead of another santa.  Love it.  I can also catch up on blogs which except for three or four, I haven't read for days.  Oh!  I have to work up the Sampler Pear design that was lost and stitch it before December 1.  Maybe tomorrow.  Tonight it's just me and Mary Beale.
Hope you survived the shopping weekend.  Thank you for taking time to visit and stay safe. 
Talk to you soon.

I suggest a glass of wine as soon as possible. Take care, bundle up, and stitch your troubles away.

So sorry to hear of your troubles. I feel the same about winter, I hate it really, the cold sub-zero temps and the deadly windchill on top, not to mention the snow, ice and traffic problems and the drivers that can't drive in it.
I think time away may be the anwser. Usually is for me. Enjoy your evening. I plan on doing some orniment finishing tonight myself.

I find snow very pretty. I HATE driving in it. To add to my stress, our 18 year old drives his brother, sister and himself to high school this year a few times a week. I will be sweating bullets when he has to drive in it. I am so glad we don't have the snow up here yet.
I hope you have an excellent, stitchy night Marly. =)

OMGosh...the Sampler Boxes are gorgeous! We had a good dose of snow here today in NJ, but growing up in Rochester, NY I am used to it ;P I enjoy the first few snowfalls, but by January the love affair has ended!
Stitching, and a cup of coffee, are always good ways to brighten a cruddy day.
Smiles,

And this is where we differ, as you well know. Bring on that snow!!! We had a 30% chance this morning. I knew the weatherman was yanking my chain. He gets such a kick out of tricking me time & time again throughout this wonderful (if you live in normal, snow-blessed climate)season. Well, after 4 Christmas seasons I've wised up. He can go trick someone else.

Carole said...

Nos. 6 and 10, please! I've sent you an email! They are wonderful!

Carole said...

Well, if I had read the whole thing, I would have waited til Thurs., but, greedy Carole read as far as "check the sampler boxes heading" and I was off and running......my
apologies!

Penny said...

OMG, Marly.... Love all your new boxes, and hope to be able to snag one (or three!) on Thursday!
There's little that frustrates me more than computer/printer problems.... especially b/c I don't have a clue how to fix any of it. You were smart to put it all away and take a break.... maybe when (and if!) you try again, things will go smoother... at least I hope they do for your sake. They are so wonderful, and I know that lots of gals will be wanting them!
Enjoy your stitchy night... think I'll do some, too....

lol! Yes, the white stuff will get me in a bad mood anytime. lol! I swear I'd be happy never seeing another snowflake. Have fun with the wreath. I need to go look at your boxes now.

Peggy Lee said...

Computer woes and Winter give me the same reaction: makes me want to say bad words! I went to the gym this morning in this awful stuff. I'm with you....I HATE Winter!

Barb said...

Have fun with Mary. I'll be looking forward to Thurs. morning. Do you have a time in mind? I'm on Pacific time.That puts us behind the rest of the country.

Maggee said...

Hope you found a good dose of time to stitch last night! As for the flashes, I know of a tried and true natural remedy if you are interested. Just email me! Maybe I will be able to get a box this time... we shall see! Hugs!
