Let's Hoot Together!!
So I got this owl stamp at CK Nashville. I just loved it! And... it was only $1.99!! I couldn't wait to play with it. Of course... it has been sitting here for a few weeks now.
When I got my blog candy package, from the sweet and talented Carly, this sentiment was included. I knew immediately that the two stamps were asking to go together on a card! What a perfect match!
So... hope you guys have had an amazing day! Carver and I went to Michael's for a little while this morning and we have been home the rest of the day. I have been washing and ironing all of Carver's fall and winter clothes! Last night, I went outside and it was cold! Well... colder than it has been in a long time. I decided it was time to quit procrastinating and get all of C's clothes ready to wear!
I also got some of the bins out of the attic (with the help of the hubby) and started going through those. This sounds crazy, I know, but... I cannot stand to have so much stuff in the attic. It just drives me crazy! I think about it all the time!
I finally decided to go through all of those baby bins! I have kept EVERYTHING! I know good and well that I will not use all of what I have kept. Some things I didn't use the first time or... some things I will just want new if we were to have another baby! I still have a lot to go through but as of right now... I have 3 BIG tubs worth of stuff that has got to go!
Next on the list... all of those holiday decor boxes and home decor boxes! I try to keep the home decor boxes cleaned out but sometimes I like to just go through them again so I can remember what I have! I need to see if I have anything that I can alter and use it! I am getting in the redecorating mode. I haven't been there in a long while because I have been in stamp mode but... I am feeling some fresh paint, etc. calling my name! It is just discouraging because I want to redo my whole house but it takes too much money! I just have to be patient and work on one room at a time and try to do it with a small budget. I am just not a patient person!!
But... I am.... a CHATTY person!! :)
Well..... a couple more things before I go!
Do you all have any plans or ideas for this ... ?
I would love to hear about them! My IRL friend, Courtney, is coming over for pizza and crafting! I am super excited!! I wish it was tomorrow! :)
Last thing... don't forget to check back on the 30th (bright and early) to hear about the exciting news that I have been talking about! A PTI gift certificate may or may not be up for grabs!! :)
