Good morning everyone.
I am sorry that I haven't been around much this week. We have been so so busy it is truly an understatement. My oldest M&M had choir tryouts for next year when they will both be in High School., (where or where did I put that Valium? lol) Kidding! Anyway, he got through his one on one tryout yesterday and now we have to wait for a call back. Poor kid is going to go crazy waiting. We'll just have to hope for good weather and walk it out of him. lol...
So, there is just a little glimpse of some of our madness that is going on at the old Gobea House. I, however did not want to miss out on this week's Spring Cleaning Retro Fresh Challenge over on the FFF challenge blog. So when I got home after 6pm I sent Jerry out to the garage to dig through some of my old scrapbooking stuff so that I could use a certain product that I have. Well after an hour and no such luck I made him come in as it is entirely possible that I sold it at a garage sale we had about two years ago. lol... He is a very patient man when it comes to me and the M&Ms...
As I had no luck there I decided to see if I could find my eyelet punch that I haven't used in over 3 years. Yay! I was able to find it and all of my eyelets put away in their proper place that I had forgotten about. So, long story short I used one of the very very first Miss Anya stamps that I purchased from the Greeting Farm and gave her a few little flower eyelets that I have had for over 5 years and used that eyelet setter that has been sitting around for the last 3 years. All in all I think I did a good job of pulling out some of my long forgotten must have items that I used to love working with.
I love this challenge! I think it is a fantastic idea and it really does get you back into the mood to use up some of those 'must haves' that you just forgot about. lol... So if you get a chance head over to the
Farm Fresh Challenge blog and see what the rest of our very talented DT ladies have made up for you.
Also don't forget that you have all month for this one. All you need to do is upload your card by Tuesday April 10th at Noon CST and you will have a chance to win 4x6 stamp set of your choice from the Greeting Farm. I hope you enjoy or if you will 'embrace' this challenge. I really think you will be happy that you did.
Have a great Wednesday everyone and I will talk at you tomorrow. Be sure to check back in the afternoon tomorrow as there will be a bit of a surprise I know you'll want to read about.
Hugs, Lisa G
