I had a super busy day yesterday rushing around doing errands & getting caught at Sam's during a horrible thunderstorm. Summer is officially here in Atlanta. Hot & Humid.
I did take some me time while I was out to hit the thrift store I like -- looking for scrapbook storage & whatever "junk" as my hubby calls it strikes my fancy... I got quite a few items & will be spray painting some that were too beat up before putting them in my room.
My "treasure" as I call it is a shelf that I think will work a lot like the Unity Stamp hanging shelf. Sure theirs is a lot nicer but still not bad for $1.71 at the Goodwill store. It has wine logo on the side so I'm not sure what it was originally used for but I'm excited to use it for hanging my wooden Unity Stamps.
I was bummed not to spend a lot of the day chatting in the Splitcoast forum. That is super fun every Thursday. Nothing like a chance to win prizes throughout the day to keep my butt firmly planted in front of the computer..... lol
Here's a card I made yesterday.... Got my dad's card made thanks to all the inspiration on the blog hop yesterday. Unity designers are amazing. (I know I said all my Hip Hop cards are going to Cards For Heroes so I'll just have to make 3 this weekend to make up for it)
Supplies: Cardstock (Paper Resources); Paper (My Mind's Eye, The Paper Studio, Graphics 45 & Imaginence) Ribbon (Olfray); Punch (Fiskars); Stamps (Unity KOTM May 09, Unity KOTM April 09, & Unity Alpha G Just My Type)
Unity released a new stamp set perfect for the summer called Sweet Summer Time (retro bbq theme) .... They will be hosting a challenge with this stamp set that your creations could be used in the Unity booth at CHA summer next month. More details will follow so you should buy your set right now to be ready (free stamp included with purchase this weekend). What a great opportunity - that's better than being published!
Well I'm off to a doctor appointment & then stopping at the farmer's market. My hubby loves potatoes & we go thru a lot of them so I buy a 50 lb bag of red ones for less than $15 (believe it or not it doesn't last long in our house). They also have some of the sweetest corn around & the only place to get good squash & okra. I have to cook southern stuff for my southern guy. To him a great meal is: beans (pinto beans), potatoes (fried in skillet), tall glass of fresh brewed sweet tea & cornbread (baked in a cast iron skillet). I'm more of a healthy eater & don't like so much fried foods so that usually means 2 meals cooked... oh well if it keeps him happy (but not healthy). The farmers market has the most amazing apple turnovers that are layers of puffed pastry.... That's my weakness & worth the extra calories right there.
