I wish I could say I’m making great progress on the taxes, but it was a bumpy day yesterday. Had to switch my plans to pick up Ginny from school as there was a threat of hail and damaging winds. They said the treat of tornadoes was very low so I wasn’t all that worried. That was about to change. Some of you may not know but I live in the Moore, Oklahoma area. You may remember the tornado that wiped out a chunk of my town a couple years ago, hitting 2 schools killing 11 children. We take severe weather very serious around here.
By early evening, we were preparing for the rain and hail to hit when out of nowhere, the tornado sirens went off. I knew the threat was minimal and the news never said that we were in a tornado warning. I went outside to look around and I ‘heard’ that sound. Far away in the distance I heard that rumble — that freight train sound. I ran back inside and stayed glued to the TV trying to see which direction it was coming. We had about 6 tornadoes touch down, one within a ¼ mile of my sister’s house causing damage to everything in her backyard but luckily the house was fine. Other business nearby weren’t so lucky. It really is unbelievable that it’s the first week of spring and we’re already dealing with this kind of crazy weather. Another school was severely damaged but praise God school was not in session at the time so no one was injured.
We are all fine at our house, just a little shook up as we prepare ourselves for the reality of the damage the tornadoes left behind. School has been canceled today due to all the damage around town and lots of power outages.
I am SO ready to get back to stamping! It’s such great therapy. I may have picked the wrong week to do taxes but I am going to do my best to get going on them tomorrow.
Well, sometimes the best way to deal with stuff like this is a good distraction so I have one last final IRS (I’d Rather Stamp) video for you. I made this one several years ago and they are still my most favorite project ever! Check out this fabulous Chocolate Bunny cupcake topper. Is this just SUPER CUTE or what?
Here are some other versions I made. The chick is made with orange cupcakes. Not sure if these are still around or not. I hope so because the chick is just adorbs!
Let me share today’s video…

I found the Teeny Tiny Wishes to be the perfect sentiment for this project but if you don’t have that one, check out the “Happy Easter” in the Crazy About You stamp set or “Hippity-Hoppity” in the And Many More stamp set.
Here are the other supplies I used in my project today. Be sure to use the March Hostess Code TWBJEJDR on your order of $20 or more to receive the ‘Let’s Get Creative’ video & tutorial for this month!
And that wraps up IRS Week! I hope you guys enjoyed the Easter videos this week and THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for giving me this week to work on taxes. You guys are the BEST!!! As I said, I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked but I will try to do what I can in the evenings so that I can keep bringing stamping videos and inspiration to you every day.
Tomorrow I will be back with my Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge! Before I started on the taxes, I created some inspiration for this weekend’s challenge.
See you then! Have an awesome Thursday!
