Card Samples

so what do you think I did today aside from WORK?

Ya.. you got it.  I ran to Michaels like a lunatic.. (Now why is Home Depot open 24 hours but Michaels isn’t?? HMMMMM??????)  Until I found those doll pins, it was 1/2 hour.  I had to ask 36 different staff members with blank faces.. dontcha just love that look?  The raccoon in headlights look?  like  they are thinking (I HAVE NEVER EVER HEARD OF WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AND YOU JUST WOKE ME UP FROM MY NAP).  Anyhow, I bough about 600 of them (ok, maybe 150).. Ok if there are any racoons in headlights reading, read my organization contest and comments.. someone spoke about the doll pins).  I bought the bases for them too so they can stand up.. OMG.. I LOVE THEM.. I bought short stick pins to pin the tail (not on the donkey).. Oh I bought the CUTEST plate holders.. you know, the stand that opens into a v to sit a plate in it?  I decided to invest in one so I can perch my card and take a photo and no more lopsided cards!  p.s.. this plate stand is the mini-est, cutest little thing you have ever seen.. so ya, I bought 3. Then I ran to Staples and based on everyone’s recommendation bought a label printer (Brother P Touch).  hmph.  i am done.  I cant believe it.  I am not complaining cuz I am SOOOO HAPPY!  So if anyone else has any other favorites to share.. please do!!  LOVE this post.

I am going back to worky worky

    Yay!!! So glad you found the doll pins!!! Now you’ll wanna buy lots more ribbon to fill those jars to capacity! And then more jars…then more pins…then more ribbon. Ugh!! It’s a vicious circle of pure enjoyment!!!

    So glad you found the doll pins yesterday. I also saw them at my Michael’s but I did not buy any. On top of having too much ribbon (It wouldn’t fit into 100 jars and then where would I put all those jars???) I want to buy more Bellas. 🙂
