Today was a MUCH busier day than I like on a Monday. Monday's to me involve staying home, no makeup, catching up on paperwork, bills, cleaning etc after the weekend. Alas I needed to run errands today after prepping Teacher's Convention Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - then recovering Saturday and Sunday! Today I needed to do some deliveries and few other left-over items on my to-do list from last week.
I PLANNED to resume my normal "Monday activities" on Tuesday … however apparently I've neglected to enter any the of grocery store in the last 6 days and the cupboards are bare! So - off to 10% Tuesday I go bright and early .. then it's off to the vet with Doodles to get his ear checked out. He's gunna HATE that!
Anywayyyyyyy - Yesterday was March 1st - and THAT means Stampin' Up! released four more FANTABULOUS new Sale-a-brations items that you can pick from with every $60 you spend. I feel "another" $240 order coming on! Check these out ...
OK! Wanna see another project? Alrighty! Here is what I whipped up the night before Teacher's Convention for door prizes ...
These little post-it-note holders were SO quick and easy to make. I grabbed a stack of 4" x 4" coaster that I have been hoarding for about … mmmmm - 7 years or so … grabbed my stash of retired DSP (although I read the name of this one 3 times in anticipation of blogging about it I have once again forgotten the name of it - sorry!). I cut the DSP into 4" x 4" strips, rounded the corners, taped them to the coaster board (the backs are a different pattern but I forgot to take a picture of them!) I grabbed my stash of bulldog clips (yes, of COURSE I had 3 boxes of them lying around - doesn't EVERYONE?) I rummaged through my jar of wash tape, found a green one from Santa & Co and added it to the bulldog clip. Punched out 36 butterflies out of Mellow Moss card stock, attached them to the coaster with 2 glue dots, added some rhinestones and attached the post it note. I stamped the sentiment in Mellow Moss. I love this sentiment. It is from Feels Good. I LOVE these little gifts. Very quick, easy and economical (no - I don't use a full pack of post-it notes - I split each one into 4).
So there you have it. Think I'll got see what the girls are up to. I'm "done"!
Pop in again soon. Until then, have a stampy night!
