Soooo I thought I would take some to answer a few questions, here goes:
Yes, I will get the embroidery pattern name from my mom. They're brand new so I know they should be available.
Clothespins with ribbon.....I secure the ribbon with straight, stick pins (stuck in horizontally along the line of the clothespin so that you don't poke yourself)
My new/old tricycle.......I'm going to fancy it up for July 4th, thinking about making some pennants and tying them on the handle bars.
Go Adam!! I hope he wins American Idol tonight!!!!!!!! I'm 40 but I can still rock it, baybee!
The Snack Wagon......lots and lots of refills, I have to hide my favorite things or they get devoured in like one day.
My flour/sugar/coffee jars from WalMart......great idea for the laundry room, I have that planned but need to give my laundry room a makeover first.
When does school start for us?........We get out tomorrow and go back about August 15th or so.
Lunch.....it's in the works......do you like Mexican snackies? How about a refreshing little drink with a lime? (No, not margis....way too early for margaritas!)
Okay, I think I might hear Carmen so I'm outta here! Have a great day girls!
Thank you, thank you for birthday wishes. It was like getting 50-some birthday cards!! I had a great day just spending time with my family and hanging out. I'll have to be sure to show you the new dishes I got.
To continue the fun, my friend Carmen is coming over today to make some teacher gifts. It's kind of our last hoorah before our kids are out of school. When we get together, we've started to do some fun stuff. We usually have some kind of little *coffee bar* area set up so that we can rev up our mojo and we also do a little fun place setting for a quick lunch. Today I'll show you my coffee station.
I decided to make up a few cute cards with some FUN new stamps from JustRite Stampers. I used the Just A Little Caffeine Borders and Centers stamp set and this center sentiment is my fave. It reads *Is there really life before coffee?* Good question!! (The answer is NO!)
I cut my images out with Spellbinders Inverted Scalloped Circle Nestabilities Die Templates and then just inked the edges with PTI Fresh Snow Ink. I added a few sequins and some pretty ribbon to finish off my cards. Base card is made from Papertrey's Warm Happiness stamp set and Versamagic inks.
I added my cards to a little tray of coffee goodies which includes two coffee mugs, creamer, sugars and a cute cloth napkin. I love the tray because I can carry this to my craft room if we want. It's the good stuff like this that makes having a good friend so much FUN!
