Little Free Library
(Click here to learn more about them.)
Sorry about the ad links above, but they are attached to the video. Well, who am I to judge...maybe you want breaking news--LOL! Anyways, isn't this a wonderful idea! And so many unique designs! Just tickled me. :)
Yesterday my Scrapbook.com order arrived for a little late birthday joy--LOL!
A couple of them with groupings I will cut apart.
Something I hadn't seen before that was on sale--chipboard book covers.
Another set of small templates (or stencils, whatever you want to call them).
A set of a dozen small daubers and a plastic box to store small daubers. Want to try to use these with the distress inks so you don't have to clean them every time you change colors or throw away sponge applicators. Sounded like a good idea. We'll see how it works in practice. Just need to find a way to label them.
A jumbo dauber and the Smash date stamp.
A free gift of some paper flowers and a $5.00 off your next order thank you! Nice!
I'm fascinated by these chipboard covers. Not sure how I will use them--can punch holes and use rings or sew them together or use bookbinding or duct tape, whatever you want or can think of.
And will I fill them with something pre-made (a story or poem or artwork) or fill it with blank paper to make a sketchbook or art journal...or write a super-duper letter, for that matter? No clue. But I knew I just had to have them! ;)
And Karma had to have the packing paper.
Slept on it all afternoon.
Late last night Dagan and Leah dropped by briefly with more late birthday joy! The new additions to my cast iron skillet!
The cool red long handle cover and the black attachments for the short handle and the cover handle. (The short, thick clip-ons only come in black.) I am all set now, eh? Fancy!
It has been very windy and the dryer flap has been going off and on for the past few days. I called the office yesterday to ask if they can see if they can do something--anything--to stop it. There have been a few changes in the office since I asked a couple years ago when they said no. This new guy said that after the wind died down he'd have maintenance look at it. (You don't want anybody on top of a very high ladder in 30-40 mph winds.) I suggested maybe they could just put a screen over it to keep the birds out and remove the flap even. We'll see what happens.
Today--still windy--flap beating against the building--cold and rainy, too. Nothing will get checked until next week--barring the wind, of course. It's 48, but feels colder because of the wind. I had to turn the heat up with that wind pounding against the windows.
Karma and I are inside--safe and warm. :)
Sounds hard to believe, but just being out and about three times in 9 days was totally exhausting for me. Absolutely draining. I am hoping to get back to doing some extra things (fun stuff!) soon...maybe even this weekend. I never got past lesson two on Cathy's watercolor journaling class, for goodness sake. So that is first on the agenda--finish up the last two lessons.
I switched over to the new Blogger format. Got frustrated trying to post so I switched right back. BUT--that made it possible for me to post comments again--tada! At least it did--haven't tried yet today. Not that you guys need to hear my two cents, but I do enjoy being able to toss it into the mix sometimes--LOL! ;)
Have a great weekend!! :):)
