Miscellaneous posting...

for tonight. I was feeling kind of yucky today so I didn't make anything. And I usually schedule my late night posting for the next morning but not tonight. Instead, I am going to share some fun stuff I have found lately. They are all linked up. And I promise not to be offended if you choose not to read this post. :)

First- Lorie is up for SheetLoads guest artist. Go vote for her now!

Second- I love my Fiskars Threading Water punch. It is great for fun borders and such. Well I've been trying to figure out a way to use it to make scalloped squares. With no success. Until today. I came across this post from Mary Jo Albright. She is a genius! This will work for the Fiskars punch too, you just have to adjust the measurements sightly. I am so stinkin' excited for this! It means I don't have to get Nesties! More money for stamps and paper! Yay! As I figure out the Fiskars measurements, I will share them if anyone wants them also.

Third- Our ticket to summer. Stacy Julian is a genius too! We've been doing this with Adam for about 3 weeks now and it has been great! No more whining about not being able to earn money, stay up late, etc. It really has worked well for us, with a few minor modifications.

Fourth- My new favorite treat. I am seriously addicted. Reeses Whoppers! Yum! I can't find an actual link to the product page. But they are at Walmart. And really not healthy. But isn't that what a treat is all about? I thought they would be gross, but I was wrong. Oh so wrong.

And lastly- I have a family blog. I never remember to update it. I've gone back and forth as to whether or not to keep it. But I am going to. And I want to keep this blog just for crafty stuff. So, if you want to read about my children's shenanigans let me know and I will send you a link to the family blog. And in addition to the family blog, I am going to start one just about me. Kind of an online journal. It will be an invitation only blog, so let me know if you want to read all about me and my issues, because I'm fun like that. Yep. Fun.

Seriously, has anyone read this far? Sorry, I seem to be long winded tonight. Maybe my insomnia will keep me up for a few more hours and I can crank out something crafty to share! That's why you're here right? The crafty. It's all about the crafty. From now on! :)

Pin It!

I read it all and thank you! I'm still woefully behind in the SheetLoads thing...but I'm okay with it! Thank you so much for the shout out!

I want the URL to your family blog please! Do you have the URL to my family blog? I have a funny little joke on mine today. :o)
