The light rain and the foggy white days continue as the snow slowly recedes.
The pond in the parking lot enlarges...
...and you can see the playground now--underwater.
I had a couple of packages come yesterday. This one on the teal colored bag is from Volcano Arts. The two clear acrylic squares (came with the blue coating on both sides so they didn't scratch) are exactly the right size to use with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Everyone was out of the extra sheets for it, so I thought I'd try these. I think I will like them better because they are thicker and butt up against the device even more firmly. Hurray! Glad I got them. :)
The short eyelets look about the same size as the standard ones? I love these tiny metal containers they came in! We can always use eyelets. :)
Here are the new eyelet setters in the 1/8 and 3/16 sizes that are supposed to work better. Having the nubbies on the ends is supposed to help so they don't go lopsided and split the eyelet. I hope they work better.
These are itty, bitty eyelets size 1/16. I never buy them because I didn't know how I would set them.
But they had a 1/16 eyelet setter, too--with a nubby! :)
The JoAnn's order came, too. One thing Leah and I haven't tried much of is the rub-ons. I got two general sayings rub-on sheets...
...and a booklet of rub-ons for cards, it says.
A recent addition to our adhesive repertoire--dimensionals.
Some white and natural beeswax...
...and a few Perfect Pearls powders (never tried). Good for rubbing shimmery colors on stuff--including beeswax! Everything was on sale except the Perfect Pearls, I think.
Strangest thing...I was waiting in the lobby for the mail lady to get done so I can get the rest of my mail with my packages and she asked me--"Did you win a poetry contest?"
Totally baffled, I told her--Yes--and asked her how she knew about it. She read about it in the Fargo Forum. Oh my! I had no idea they mentioned it in the newspaper! (I don't subscribe.) So that was kind of fun! She recognized my name from the mail route. Got me to giggling. I told her the story and how I bought a laptop with the money. So, I got congratulations from the mail lady. :)
Anyways, no snow left on the porch. But with all the rain the carpet is pretty soggy out there. Karma has her own solution. She keeps expecting bugs any day now--hehe!
I've been using the SpotBot to finish the bleaching of the carpeting. Looks so much better than those terrible brown stains. Won't be long and we can move the bookcase! :)
I did finish cleaning off the art table, too. Am gradually recharging, I guess. Slowly rejoining the land of the semi-functional--ROFL! Have a really wonderful, functional day--hehe!
