What a gorgeous sunrise this morning!
The big excitement up here--K & Kraft's is having their own Black Friday weekend sale like everybody else and they have the big sets of Spellbinders basic shapes on sale! I called on Wednesday to ask Kay if we could order them over the phone and pick them up later since Leah is out of town this weekend. Yes! She said to call on Friday.
So, I was up and on the phone when they opened at 8am. Sounded busy over there! Nothing ever runs smoothly, I guess. Didn't have the expiration date on Leah's card, had to call Leah, she was out of phone range but it did ring - thank goodness. Long story short, we finally got online together, problems were resolved, and decisions made--hehe! And when I called back to K&K's half an hour later--they still had the four sets that we wanted--TADA!!! Leah will pick them up on Monday. :):)
Meanwhile, we may have an order for a dozen bookmarks. Waiting on a return email. If we get the okay I will start on making those right away. (We don't have any stockpile, but people can email us and request things.) Otherwise--I will continue to work on snowflakes today. Yesterday I took the day off from everything. Just relaxed and hung out with Miss Karma--hehe!
Did watch Angels and Demons. Was really exciting and I don't want to give anything away.
After the murder of Italian physicist Leonardo Vetra, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon's (Tom Hanks) investigation with Vetra's daughter (Ayelet Zurer) leads to a secret society, the Illuminati, and a quest for the world's most potent -- and deadly -- energy source. Ron Howard directed the crime thriller, which is based on The Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown's novel and co-stars Ewan McGregor and Stellan Skarsgård.
And another movie called The Limits of Control...
An enigmatic stranger (Isaach De Bankolé), with no friends to speak of and no one to trust, is on a shadowy criminal mission. His moves are always marked with the knowledge that the law is never far behind. Acclaimed indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers, Coffee and Cigarettes) writes and directs this tale, which is set against the backdrop of contemporary Spain. Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt and Gael García Bernal co-star.
...which I thought was a total waste of time. Very arty and cinematic, I suppose--but I never understood it--at all. Made no sense--and I think that was the point. I felt like when you are at an art gallery and don't understand the symbolism of a giant circle on canvas. Frankly--sometimes a big dot is just a big dot, you know? Duh!
I'm glad I watched Angels and Demons second--hehe!
Today--sunny day and back to snowflakes. Putter! Putter! :):)
