My husband and I hit all the Garage Sales in our town today as we do every Saturday. The deal of the day was a NEW in the box Cutter Bee Glass Mat for my Cutter Bee Curvy Cutter for a mere $2.00. Asking price was $3.00 but of course I asked for a discount. This item in the store costs $19.99. My Thinking of you card made it in this treasury. Please take a peek.
Finally a new card. I love this card. The trees appear to be at night with a beautiful metallic blue background.
I bought a Cricut personal cutting machine today and I am so excited to try it out. I am hoping my card making will move along a little faster if I don't have to cut out every little thing. The card above is cut out with my little marshmellow fingers and it took quite some time. I know the Cricut wont cut out such detailed items but I plan to use it for lettering and other simple things. I just love getting new crafting toys. It makes me feel like a little kid. If any of you other crafters have a Cricut please feel free to comment about it and let me know how you like yours.
Today I joined PaperBack Swap. I plan on trading My Mountain of Books that I have read for another Mountain of Books I want to read. It was so easy to join. I just went to http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php signed up and listed 10 paperbacks I have already read. Instantly I received 2 credits. Which means I can order 2 books of my choosing. The sender pays the postage, so I get my two books for nothing. Now when someone orders one of my listed books I pay the postage to send the book to them and I receive a credit which means I can get another book. Easy as that. You get your books for the price of the postage. No hidden fees or gimmicks. This is great because I just started reading the Joanna Brady Mysteries by J.A. Jance and I can't seem to find them all at my library and I didn't really want to pay full retail for them.
My husband went to cover up the 4 wheeler with a tarp he left on the ground for a week and surprise underneath was this nest with an egg in it. We put the tarp back over the nest and wondered why the bird would build a nest on the ground where all kind of creatures could get to that precious egg. The next day we looked under the tarp and surprise another egg. Well now we need the tarp, so we took a bucket and cut a door in it so the mother bird can get into check on the eggs. This morning I saw her coming out of the bucket which is great. I was worried she might not go back to the nest since we disturbed the tarp. I hope nothing gets the eggs. Like a snake or a skunk. I will keep and eye on the nest and keep you all posted. Oh by the way the eggs are white with brown spots. Anybody have any idea what kind of chicks might hatch?
I started an Art Fire Shop yesterday. I wanted to start the shop to see if I can attract a different kinds of shopper. So far I have noticed more hits on certain cards than when I had them in my Etsy store. Some differences already. I will note other differences in the future. You can check out my Art Fire shop from the link on the sidebar.
