Jar Full of Memories

Jeff is coming home from Turkey hunting, so I will let you know if he gets anything. I always tease him and tell him when I go to the store for steak, I come home with steak, unlike when he goes hunting for a deer, he does not always come home with a deer.  He just comes home TO his DEAR! Ha!!  I think that is why we get along so well and he is so supportive of my Stampin' Up! business, because he also has something that he loves to do.

Convention is right around the corner, well the end of July, but we get to register right around the corner, and I am so excited. My BFF Tracy and I have some fun things planned to do while we are in Salt Lake City.

One of the things I did after we got home from our cruise last year,  blog 04 25 08 004 was I made up this jar. I had found this big huge clump of sand when we were in the Bahamas, I first thought it was a rock, so I brought it home with some shells and sand dollars that we found while snorkeling.  I just smashed the sand up loose, added the shells, I put a rub-on on the jar, just recently, and now it is a jar full of memories.

I have a bunch of these jars, you can find them at Micheals and they have many different sizes, you can keep anything in them, ribbons, buttons, Flower Fusions etc. In fact I have one that is filled with fake snow, and when it is 120 degrees it is kinda nice to look at.

blog 04 25 08 002 We have our Annual Arizona Spring Fling coming up, and so I wanted to do some fun quick center pieces for the tables.

Walmart had these adorable bowls, and I had some Sale-a-Bration Rub-ons left over, and rub, rub, rub and Ta Da! Aren't these adorable?  We will fill them with goodies and they will make the tables look so Springy, don't ya think?

While I have been busy working on display stamping for Convention, I went through some old cards, to get some ideas, and be inspired.  This was one of my old favorite stamp set, "Sunflower Serenade". Beautiful!

My Downline meeting is tomorrow, and the DIVA's will be stamping their cards afterwards, and I have a studio that really needs to be tidied up, there is a bunch of stuff that needs to be hidden away, so I best get my butt off here and get busy.

Thanks for stopping in!
