I said I would tell you the story about the mugs. My sweet antique hunting friend Sharon sent me a photo of those cute mugs she found at her local grocery store, and I was like oh wow what size are they? and she told me and I realized they would work perfect for my club girls and I could put their initial on them. So I have the same grocery store by me. In fact I have two of them, one has more stuff then the other but the store Sharon got them at was the regular one. So I drive on over there and can't find them. I look all over the store. Sharon gives me the UPC code off of it, and the girl at customer service said they can't look things up like that. I am thinking ok whatever, I guess I don't know anything. So I headed over to the other store, and same thing, none to be found. One of the stock girls asked if she could help me and I told her and she put the UPC code in her hand held thing (she just raised her eyebrows when I said the other store said they couldn't look things up that way – I think the eyebrow raise meant perhaps I do know some things after all). But somehow the code was not coming up. So I called Sharon back and she said she would zip over to her store and grab me some. So she did, she went to two stores even. What a doll eh?
So a couple days later I am at my store, and I walk by the cereal aisle end cap and guess what I see? No, not Snap Crackle & Pop dancing on the shelf with Count Chocula (although I did hear they are auditioning for Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars). I saw the dang mugs, all four colors. Plus on another end cap there was soup bowls too. Now it was my turn to take a picture and send it to Sharon, we both got a good laugh about it. So now you know the mug story. It is funny how Sharon and I are like that, she will show me something and then I want it, and I will show her something and she wants it too. It's been shoes, purses, pyrex dishes, and I am probably missing something. Too fun! Love ya girl!
So when I stopped over at MAMMa's last week to say hi to the girls at class, I fell in love with this Christmas card, so I wanted to do it for my Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards. MAMMa had a trinket pin hanging on her ribbon, but if you remember yesterday's card the class girls are already using the pin on the snowman card, so I used pearls instead.
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Old Olive
Paper: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Deck the Halls DSP
Misc: Ornament punch, pearls, Victoria Crochet trim
Isn't this a pretty card? Thanks MAMMa!
Another thing Sharon has got me back to doing is…well not exercises which I should be doing. Oh man I am not even going to tell you how much weight I have put on, I am back to where I started when I wanted to lose when I was doing the Shupe Diet…ha! Bah Humbug!
Anyway, it's this…
…a crock pot! Oh and she also got me using a crockpot liner…this makes cleaning up the crock pot so much easier.I used to use it all the time and then kinda forgot about it, so I used my old one the other day and then I got this brand new one with a timer at the store, and used it today to do a pot roast. Even though I work from home I don't know why I don't use it more often. So I am going to start using it all the time. Cause then I know we will eat out less, save money and maybe lose weight. I am going to go get a second one cause I have some amazing desserts that cook in the crock pot too. Yeah notice I go from gonna lose weight to dessert…ha!
I want to Welcome some new girls to my team. Joyce, Karel, Judy & Jan. I am so excited to have them join my Di's Country INKers family.
If you have been thinking about joining Stampin' Up! I would love to talk to you about it. The kit is half off right now, it's only $87.50, but you wanna hurry, that price ends on November 30.
Well I am gonna hit the hay, I got almost all my cards cut for my class, I have some card stock not here yet and ribbons, but then it'll be all done when my order gets here…yeah!
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in!
