I'm also entering this in:
- City Crafter Challenge Blog #15, Garden Mail, to use a color from the inspiration photo and include something to do with mail. The owl is stamped on a small panel that I slipped inside a tiny handmade envelope. Making that envelope was SO much fun!!
- Simon Says Challenge, Going Dotty!
Oh, can I share a little bit of fun with you? The kids and I made a trek to IKEA yesterday, which is a treat for all of us. We lunched in the IKEA restaurant and had dessert at the snack bar (fresh cinnamon roll for me, vanilla cones for the kids). I was on the hunt for a better way to store my growing collection of paper punches and hoped I'd find something good at IKEA. I hit pay dirt! This little Helmer metal drawer unit is exactly the kind of sturdy solution I was looking for: drawers are 9.5" wide by 15" long and, most importantly, 4" deep. They are just right for my punches! I can quite comfortably store 8 of the large old-style SU punches in a drawer, and because the drawers are metal, they can handle the weight of that many punches without bowing and deforming. I am SO thrilled. :) Oh, and DD couldn't wait to help me assemble the drawer unit. Wow--she is a natural when it comes to putting things together, and she figured out the direx faster than I could. Must be all that Lego building!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
