...........My Book List

I put this little gadget on hoping to start a discussion on what is on other peoples "nightstands". As much as I love reading, I don't enjoy book clubs - too much discussion on "the meaning and uses of irony" or "existentialism in post-modern Europe" and other such nonsense. I just want to hear what other people are reading and tell me if it is good, bad or otherwise - just enough info to make me want to try it or avoid it altogether. So hope to see your comments on this or direct me to your list somewhere in cyberspace!

Contest...Contest!!! Win BIG!!!

Well, big is a relative term! Anyways, I am running a little contest here. Sign up as a follower and leave me a comment on this post and I will enter you in a draw that I am doing at the end of the month. People that have signed up as a follower already will be entered to win automatically. I have 5 prizes to be awarded. Good Luck!!!!

A New A New (to me anyways!) Idea!

As I was taking my "Masters" through Close To My Heart, one of the creative lessons was on using glitter. So I dug out my glitter and a glue pen and tried one of the tutorial's suggestions - adding glitter to a sticker. If you are anything like me - you too, have tonnes of old stickers from "back in the day" and adding glitter was kind of fun and trendy and really spruced them up! I think that I have been sitting on these particular stickers for about 5 years or so! Check out your stash and try it! Let me know how it turns out for you!

Submission for the Barnyard Scrappin' Contest

Here is my submission for the "Lemonade kit from Basic Grey" for the Barnyard Scrappin' challenge! That mean old Jackie MADE me use ALL the supplies - I really wanted to hoard that cute PP with the cherries and the flowers but I didn't!

Sad news...Work in Progress Binder Not Available

Good Morning Gang. Unfortunately the new Work-in-Progress 12x12 binder (p.89 Fall and Winter Idea Book) is not available. I did manage to get one early and love it as I am trying more challenges and don't scrap as chronologically as I used to. The manufacturer is no longer producing them and Close To My Heart is not sure if they will be able to find another. I will keep you posted!
