We spent this last Saturday at the consignment sale with the girls from Scrap Again and had a great time!
Last year we brought a whole car full of schtuff to sell, but this year we managed just a respectable four bins. Even though Mamala brought the equivalent of at least one bin back with her... And I managed to grab some super cute little deals myself - last season's stuff, but it's all the same for me. Good stuff now is good stuff six months for me when you are like me and just buy the everyday basics that last forever.
Love me some gold rimmed brads from Dear Lizzy and the best little bag of cast-off buttons and a little Amy Tan Stamp. Not to mention that cute little piece of flair from Marcy Penner for Studio Calico.
We knew we wouldn't get much time to actually get much work done, so we just brought the basics. These letters are seriously cute all naked straight from the store, but throw a little glitter on them and they are precious.
And we'll be working on the same stuff this coming weekend at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique's National Scrapbook Day Crop in Chico. I was hoping to actually work on catching up on the month of March and April in my Project Life Album, but until I actually splurge on the HP Officejet 100 portable printer that I say hi to every time I go to Staples, I'm afeeered I'll be leaving Project Life at home. Le sigh...
And since we're on topic, I do actually have every intention of continuing. I mean, I've bought enough stuff to supply me for PL for at least a decade... So we'll see how it goes. May 18 is the bridal shower Mamala and I are throwing for Kate and so my eyes are on May 20 when I am back at home and back to a semi-normal schedule until the rehearsal dinner and wedding on June 15. And come June 16 life returns (hopefully) to normal. Not that I haven't enjoyed the crazy amounts of crafting and every single digit scorched by my SOB hot glue gun...
