Sweet Daughter of Mine

That daughter of mine, she is such a trend setter. I can remember when she was in middle school and high school she would do these things that would have everyone else wanting to do the same. One thing that comes to mind was when she would wear a colorful shoe lace on her pony tail.

Her resent trends now at the age of 19 have been to put her cell phone in a ziplock bag so she can continue to text message while she is in the shower. So, now her friends are doing it now. And she took a piece of my white polka dot black ribbon and tied it to her cell phone with a soda can top from a monster can, it's black with a white "m" on it, it's so cute her friends want to know where she got it.

I guess it's here creative side. I love her so much!!!

Clearance Sales Everywhere
You may notice that alot of retailers are trying to unload alot of their stock at a discount. And thats because the CHA Summer show has just ended and they will be getting in all the new stuff just order at the show. So, It's a good time to get those products your've been wanting and at a good price!!

A scrapbook article from Julie Gilkay
On postcresent.com this scrapbooker tells why she scrapbooks. Not just for the socialization aspect, interaction with other moms and being forced into it by her friends. But, scrapbooking has made her pay more attention to the little things in life as she is always looking for details to record and celebrate. This is something I am sure we all can relate to. It's the little things that mean alot!!!

Okay, I feel like yelling "COME AND HEAR ALL ABOUT IT", LOL.

Okay, that was dumb!!

Well anyway here is some news thats related to our area of interest:

Beaverton woman sentenced to 22 mos. for stealing $200,000 worth of merchandise from area scrapbook and craft stores. Reaally sad story, I feel for those in the industry that lost so much. It's hard enough with the economy now. To read the whole story go to: http://www.oregonlive.com/

Here is a photo of the stolen merchandise in Ms. McGates home.

Pocket Birthday Card



Here is a pocket card I made a few days ago. I'm really happy how it came out. What do you think? I used Close To My Heart paper, stamps and ink.

Hot, so hot, can't move

107 degrees here

the computer is my friend today. Been on it all morning and afternoon. I've discovered Etsy. It is a really cool site for handmade artists to sell their wares. Since I have alot of handmade cards, mini albums, tags, gift bags and altered items in my stash, I am going to set up shop at Etsy. Wish me luck!!

Official Blogger

Okay, so now I am a blogger. I just had to join, cuz you know everyone has one now, right. Well I think it's so cool that my sweet little bunny rabbit is famous now. Yup, she's on the web now. But, dude she is not little anymore. When spring came this year she was acting really goofy. My sweet daughter said "she's twitter pattedid". Poor girl, she's not fixed.

Well, tomorrow I hope to have my sweet paper treats slideshow up. Hope everyone had a safe and fun filled forth of July!! :)
