Hey all!!! WOW!! Wednesday already - where is time going - I have soooo much to get done for this craft fair on Saturday, lol!!! No sleep until Sunday, heehee!!! So, I finally inked up my Mr. Twigster stamp, he is so very cute, but I had a hard time figuring out what to do with him. So, when I signed up for this Winter Wonderland ATC swap, I figured he was perfect! I did use some non-SU! ribbon because I thought it looked just like snowballs, heehee!! And, of course, no snowman is finished without some bling so I added some dazzling diamonds to make my man shine - LOL! Here is a close-up of the ATC, isn't he cute?! I am lovin' this little guy and see me using him a lot now that I have broken him in! He is already in the mail winging his way to the gals at the Coconut Scrapshop! I will leave you with the recipe below....but first, I must get something off my chest since it has been bothering me since yesterday and I figure if I vent, it will go away!! Yesterday, I went to Chico (about 30 minutes from my home) where all the stores are including Michaels, Joanns, and a scrapbook store that I don't frequent. However, I decided to venture in there yesterday as I am in dire need of some clear card stock for a project I want to do. Anyway, the owner of the store (who has never been really nice) asked me if she could help and I explained what I needed. She told me there was no such thing, but she had some 8x8 sheets of something that might work. So, I looked at them, asked how much they were, she responded $1 apiece, and I said I would take the ten she had figuring they would work. Soooooo, I am wondering around the store, checking out the new arrivals table (hey, I love new stuff just like the next gal!) and found myself picking up several pieces of dsp, some beautiful ribbons, embellies...you get the picture. So, I now have about $40 worth of stuff in my hands, and I am checking something else out when I hear the OWNER OF THE STORE talking to one of her employees about how dumb I am because I don't know what I am talking about, that there is no such thing as clear card stock, and to charge me a $1 for the sheets even though they are only 50 cents, and was laughing and rolling her eyes, obviously not knowing that I could hear her. So, I marched myself over to her, handed her everything I had in my hands, told her I did not need to spend my money in her store, and walked out!! Now, apparently she still has me on her newsletter sign-up because she called me and asked me what happened - so I told her. She had the nerve to lie to me and tell me that she would "talk to her employee about how rude she was" - hah!!! What a joke!! It's such a shame, we don't have a LSS where I live, and this one SUCKS!!!!! So, that's my vent - if you aren't asleep by my whining, I appreciate you letting me get that off my chest - LOL! Here's to online shopping!!!!!! Anyone know a good place where I can order some acetate or clear card stock? heehee.....thanks ladies!!!
