A fairly slow day today. Scott and I went to the 99centsonly store, but we didn't find much. I haven't found much lately, which means something good is just about due. It works that way…the good deals come to those that wait and visit often. I don't go as often as I used to before Megan found her new job, but if I have another reason to go up to the Square, I'm definitely going to go early so I don't miss out. Today's double-duty trip was for crickets for the critters.
I've been playing around with making ribbon roses after I saw a Ribbon Roses tutorial on YouTube. No matter how hard I try though, I can't get mine to look like hers. But I like the way mine turned out…maybe it's the kind of ribbon I'm using, not that I'm having trouble following directions! Maybe I'll make my own tutorial:)
Did you notice my funny "e"? I ran out of the letter "e" a long time ago! Actually I was out of the letter "i" as well. So I cut up 2 unused "j"s – and crossed a "c" with part of one. Make it do or do without!
I have decided that I will never finish my scrapbooking. There will always be more photos to make pages with, thoughts to write down…even if I were to stop the world – or even pause my life – for just long enough to get caught up, my life would be long gone before I get could deal with the thousands of photos I've taken. So I will just have to keep plugging away, one (or two…or three…or four!) photo at a time. I think that Gena would be sad if I stopped coming into the store, but I really have a lot of stuff to use, as well. I opened a drawer up to see what I had to use and it was like Christmas! I need to open up my scrapbook drawers more often!
Easy and fun flowers and one cute little Lizzie! The Crate Paper *Paper Doll Collection* has those colors that I just love and the patterns worked great with the ribbon flowers I made…before I picked the papers. It always seems to work out when I do that. Lucky me…in more than one way!
