Lost In Space

yep, thats where Ive been alright! Im back and Im still alive! I have missed all you ladies so much, hopefully I have survived the worst of it all & am on my way to a calmer life order. So apparently Im now a framer. And I dont mean construction. Framer as in "art framing" . Who would have thought I would have ended up in the frameshop? Its really fun, mega pressure but fun! I wanted to show you a few of my favorite things I have purchased at Michaels since I started. Wow what a roller coaster! So this is a couple things I got with my 40% discount. This collage frame above, so loving it!
Arent these cute, the herb pots? Im so not a plastic plant kinda girl.....but these....how adorable?? And they look so real.
The other exciting thing I bought was a "crop-a-dile". If you do any sorta papercrafts , you probably know what i mean! Its a 8 way punch & setter in one hand tool & I love it. You can punch holes easy through huge thicknesses of paper, cardstock, you can even punch through plastic and thin metal tins! Here I punched through a sticky note pad to get a ring through.
these are little "breast cancer" awareness sticky note pads giftys. Attach them to a purse or keychain...whatever. They are 2.95 in my shop. they have a breast cancer logo on back all in pink & aqua. I would love to find some white note pads but for now all I can find is yellow.
I also managed to list a bunch of great aprons and some vintage sheet music, since its been sooooooo long since an update. Must really clean this neglected house today so gotta run. I do have some redwork in process to show you soon ... cant wait for the finished result.
~cheers~

40%? I am pouting, I only got 15% in retail and the damn customers got more off than the staff.
Those herbs look so real!!

Thanks for the update Angie! 40% off is good--when they first came here I heard it was 25 and thought that was kinda lame. Hope you're enjoying it there. Love the pics!

How fun to enjoy some perks at work. The framing skills will really come in handy for your own use.
