because i need more toys...



A couple of tags I made with tons of Ranger products and some vintage goodies. I had so much fun with the winterfest over at 2peas. I didn't make as many projects as I'd like to, but it was fun just the same. I love challenges.

It's been another wildly busy week around here. I taught at the middle school on friday and taught a fun distress class on saturday. Yesterday, I woke up and the guys were gone fishing. I knew when they came home they'd watch fishing on TV. I just couldn't face it, so I drove a long old way down to Carson Original Rubber Stamp Convention. They have it about 3 times per year and I've never been. I always think, oh I'll go in a few months. But I really wanted the new alcohol ink colors and I'm teaching a class on April 4th. I just know my students will want the new colors. They aren't available in any of the stores yet. Don't you love the rationalization here. So, I went with my gift card in hand that I earned working at CHA. I didn't spend it all, but I came close. I ran into Cat who has a wonderful little shop with all the newest goodies. I also ran into some lovely stamping peas...hi Penny, Sue, and Lianne. It was a small show, but worth every gallon of gas. Just take a peek at these beauties...
