I made this notepad and post-it note holder for the friend who treated me to the Just Scrap It membership. She's a TA, so she probably loves office/school supplies as much as I do. I don't think I've posted one of these notepads before so here's the tutorial - and I'll try to post another one I made soon. As for the post-it-note holder - here's the link from the last one I made. (The stamps in these projects are Huggybellas and SU Priceless.
Today we went on a road trip to Hague with a friend to visit Prairie Chicks (their webpage is down or else I'd give you a link...) It's this quaint little scrapbooking/quilting store - definitely worth the 40 minute drive! I got some new flowers for a project I'm working on (a mini-album of our recent walk in the Legislative Gardens - I mean, you need flowers for an album like that, right?!). Overall though, I think I showed amazing restraint in my purchases considering what I was surrounded by. I think I'm in a place where I want to use my stuff up rather than just stockpile it, you know... Also, I'm getting pretty excited for the new SU catalog which I've seen peaks of through people at their convention this week...and there are some buttons and ribbons that I simply must have (oh and there are new felt fusion flowers in browns/pinks/blues), so I have to save room in my budget for that!
