hi guys...

I'm sorry... I may be making more cards to distract myself from everything.

RIP Oreo Hammy

Hi guys
I've just had a terrible end to my week...
my beloved hamster of a little over 2 years, passed away August 29, 2013 from pneumonia and heart failure (according to my vet, these disease are very common in elderly hamsters => my hamster was 84 years old)...
I've never had a pet before that I could hold (I've only had fish in the past) and this is really difficult for me and my husband... I feel all this pain and heartache... I'm sure you all know how much I loved her and frequently posted photos of my hamster here...

Have any of you ever lost a pet? How did you get over the grief of losing your pet? Please please share... I'm trying to distract myself all the time, so I won't constantly cry everywhere I go. (I'm so embarrassed because I catch myself tearing up, even in public and at random times I remember her...) I feel like creating cards occupy my mind and stop me from bursting into tears...

anyways... I want to thank all my instagram and blogspot friends who have sent their love...

Paper smooches summer haul

Hey guys!!!
I got happy mail today!! I received my order from paper smooches!!! Yay!!!
I love Kim Hughes designs (she's the owner of paper smooches) & she has cutest stamps :) 
They go for about $15 and I haven't seen them go on sale ever... So I'm slowly trying to collect the critters and cute little smiley face objects. If they ever go on sale, I would probably buy a ton more hehehe
Also, paper smooches gets brownie points for shipping their products so fast, especially to Canada :)
Enjoy!!! 

Here are the 2 new stamps I bought :)
