We spent the day going out to lunch with old college friends and then to a movie. I know, it’s tough being retired! When we got home, the weather got pretty nasty and the dogs decided they’d had enough of thunder, so Rich, Honey and Bella went to the basement for some quiet time. Aggie and I are hanging upstairs, as she can’t really hear the thunder and the stairs are a hassle for her (and for me if we’re telling the truth.)
Since we were near an A C Moore, I decided to do a little bit of shopping and bought some things that I definitely didn’t need, but wanted to try. I bought one of the knitting looms at a garage sale and bought some yarn to try to make a scarf with. I’m not even sure if I can do it, but I asked and they said I can return the unopened yarn. If I open one skein and can’t use it, it won’t be a big deal.
I found some pretty papers that were 70% off and lately I can’t pass up anything that is pink. I bought some deep pinkish purple ink and paper from Stampin’ Up and some pink texture paste and just love anything pink. I think I might make some pink glitter spray and play with that as well. I have some card ideas I’d like to try that are fun folds, but just made one that should go live in the next few days that is really cute. I really like fun fold cards and especially ones where I can layer papers and add something fun in the way of embellishments. I think I mentioned in the blog that I found matching paper and washi tape and can’t wait to make a card with that as well. So many ideas and so little time. Ok, that’s not really true, as I have the time, I just don’t have the ambition that I really should have. When we have such changing weather, I just can’t get any momentum, so I’ll just keep buying things on AliExpress until I find the will to create things. It might take me a few days, besides, Rich has a lot of videos that need to be uploaded before I’m going to feel any real pressure.
