On Wednesday, I left dodge around 1:00 and I hit the thrift shop in the Dells, 3 in Reedsburg, and then went to a new yarn shop in Reedsburg and looked around. I went to Sarah and Zach's and had supper with Sarah, and we visited during the evening, and I arrived back to Mayberry around 10:30 pm.
Thursday, after working on the scrapbook, I ran some errands, came home and made 3 pans of meat loaf and stuck them in the freezer. Then I spent the evening out at Di's house with a bunch of stamping friends. Di came up with a real cute project for us to do. I need to finish the cover and then I will post a picture on here.
Saturday morning, bright and early, I was up and headed to Madison to arrive there by 9 am to go to the stamping and rummage sale at the Scrapbook Superstore. I came home with a big bag of goodies at dirt cheap prices. The best deal was the Clip It Up I found. I have it put together but need to fill it yet. Di stopped over today to see all my goodies, so now I can get them put away. I also stopped at Aldi's on the way home, and stocked up on some groceries. After a nap, I worked on the library scrapbook in the evening.
Sunday, had me back at the flea market for a cold, rainy day. We ended up going home early and were done by 2. Another nap, and another evening of scrapbooking!
I decided that my cutting area needed cleaning up today in the stamping room. I tend to cut for several months and the scraps pile up there. A lot of times I fish things out of the pile and use them on projects I am working on, but it gets to the point that I can't stand it any more and it was time to clean it up. So I set up shop on the dining room table, so I could watch TV while running scraps through the die cutting machine. I have a little Sizzix side kick that I picked up a few years ago at a Scrap book garage sale in Madison for $2.00. It is tiny and faster to use with the sizzlet/cuttlebug dies. So I worked on cutting out a TON of these flowers, for HOURS before I stopped and starting playing, and decorated these mini notebooks. I am starting to get a headache. I think it is time for this chickadee to hit the hay! Elaine
