Let the Sun Shine In!

Well, we have been pretty lucky here in the Southern Ohio Valley over the past couple of days. I love it, 80 degree temperatures. Starting Saturday, it looks like we are taking a turn for a cold front, but that is part of spring. I’m thinking it will be time to clean the pool and prepare for swimming soon. I love that stuff!

Went to Tennessee this past weekend to a Rod Run, and had a blast. My husband is rebuilding a ‘72 Mach One Mustang, and he was inspired by what he saw. Of course, according to him, his will be so much better looking than those he saw at Tennessee. If you had a car there or know someone who did, don’t take offense to this. He is just a normal man!

What I liked best about Pigeon Forge, Tennessee was the Scrapbook Superstore. WOW! I had so much fun spending money in there! Their Clearance Store was awesome. It was a separate building. Everything in this store was 50% off. Got some stamps and all kinds of extras! You know all that stuff we cardmakers/papercrafters cannot live without. Way too much fun! Made my trip complete. It was right up there with laying on the front of the boat, reading a book and eating candy! That is something to me. Well, if you make it to Pigeon Forge, definitely check out the Scrapbook Superstore.

I’m posting an item I made sometime back. It is a tiny lunch box which I bought at Dollar Tree. It is plastic. I covered it with paper and decorated it with all kinds of embellishments. I tied ribbons to the handle and it looks just like the big ones, only about half the size. It would probably hold those little 3 x 3 cards a lot better than the regular size cards. I just thought it was cute. I made one for my niece, and she used it to put Valentine’s from preschool in. It is a good size for that.

Okay, that’s it for now. Hope you have a wonderful evening! Thanks for stopping by and come back often.
