A couple of new things.

Good morning friends!  I hope this post finds you well :)  I didn't sleep well last night, but not because of the itching, because of the dog.  He woke me up every hour, twitching at the foot of our bed.  Every time he would twitch, his toenails would click against our footboard.  Funny right?  Not so much when your getting a great nights sleep :)  Bless his heart, those must have been some great dreams he was having!

Today I'm going to share an order I got in the mail a couple of weeks ago.  I haven't had time to do anything but unpack it yet, with the move.

This was the first order I'd placed in a long time, I was SO excited to get it.  The first stamp set on the left I see ARLENE use and every time I think, I'm so going to order that, and then I forget.  I just loved the sentiments on the second set, they make me smile.  I finally picked up one of PTI's Impression Plates and I'm anxious to try it out.  I've heard they don't make as deep of an imprint as embossing but, well more of an impression.  Ha!  I'm SUPER excited about those die cut tags, how adorable are they?  Last, I finally bought some PTI felt.  It's been on my list for a long time, but there are so many colors, I just couldn't decide.  I can't wait to try it out!

Last night Mike got home and it was so nice out we all played outside for awhile before dinner.  I had hopes of crafting, but when you get a 60 degree day in February you have to take advantage of it.  It's raining here this morning, of course I just washed my car ;), what I wouldn't love more than to fix a cup of coffee and stay home to craft all day, but duty calls.  This afternoon is the grocery store, but I have BIG plans for this weekend in the crafty arena!  Have a fantastic Thursday/weekend eve and I'll see you soon!  Thanks for popping in today and I really appreciate all the wonderful, sweet and kind comments about my new room :)

    That is great that you had a 60 degree day and could get outside! Its freezing rain here, so I'm avoiding outside at all costs!

    I hope you are able to get a better night's sleep tonight!

  5. You must be very anxious to get in your new craft room and create :)
    You picked up some fun goodies...looking forward to seeing what you create with them all.
    I had to laugh at your dog keeping you awake.
    I wish we could spend some time outside...but we are still plugging in the jeep. And Ashely drove away and forgot to unplug it...she said the extension cord went flying, lol.

  6. Don't you just hate when life gets in the way of doing crafts??
