Remember Scrap Yard 329? Well they were the ones who has the wild scrapbook papers that were bones, and pirates. They will be previewing at the expo again. I liked looking at all the creativity that they had with the wild colors of hot pink and black. Skull and crossbones. WIERD...

Also the other item that I personally purchased was the paper taker box. It was made out of clear corrigated boarding. And it had a handle on it. I keep my 12x12 paper in it. Let me tell you if you get to expo, better go there 1st and get one of those. It will help for the rest of the day with all that paper shopping.

Ok I guess Provocraft has out done it yet again.
The new cart out now that I liked was SESAME STREET>>>> Yeah well thats what I grew up on. IMAGINE!! But anywho. The pictures looks really cute. I haven't a clue how to cut something like that and get the right colored characters. But I am sure someone has this cart already and is about to post about it.

Well features product today is Bazzill In Stitches Program. I remember when this product first came out. I wasn't interested at the time to actually sew on my paper. But now that time has passed and I have actually seen a friend Kim Rocker do it. I though it can't be that hard. And the finished look was awesome. Also Bazzill have come out with more templates to use. It is very pretty to. It isn't very expensive, and the templates are re usable. So I have decided to post this here. Cause if it is at expo this year I will be purchasing it.

To glue or not to glue. Which one to choose? Oh well there are tons of glue guns, tape runners, tape refills, hermie, strips, dots to choose from. Who can keep up? Well I have seen in videos online lots of people are using the new glue glider pro. There ia a great sale going on here,

And hey we are all looking for a good bargain. Lets face it, Walmart doesn't have everything we need. You have to buy online. This glue glider pro does last a good while. It isn't that bulky or heavy to hold either. The refills may seem pricey to start but for the lasting time it's a good deal. I have the ATG Gun which is larger and I love it!!!

Well I found something that looked pretty neat on space saving
They are EK Success slimline punches. Lots of different punches to choose from. The flip flop looks to be my favorite. Although I do like the 1" scallop punch also. There is a neat storage case for them to. Pretty condensing huh? Anywho off to find more great things to tickle your EXPO taste buds.

Well have to add today's post. Everyone loves the thick chipboard crafts. Well have you seen this item? The mini albums are made of really thick chipboard. And they look very thick. Perfect for everyone to browse through your created project with no tearing of your hard work project.
Definately a must for a mini book maker.

Blog MIA

Sorry I haven't blogged lately. I have been on vacation this week. Having an ok time at my MIL. Cleaning, painting, sweeping. Wow what a fun week, NOT. LOL.
Just kidding this has been a good week. Hugh and I have managed to paint a extra bedroom, lay new carpet in there. New window coverings. Also completly clean, paint, and new floor tile in a huge utlity room. All while another crew in the house totally distroying the bathroom and the laundry room. So far no running water in 3 days in the house. Makes it tough while trying to clean I hate PINE-SOL!!!
But any way I will promise to do much better towards the weekend and then beyond. So take care have a great weekend.
Hugs to my bloggin friends

This to cute not to blog, Thanks goes out to my daughter Kristin.

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess.
He asked if I'd been 'computering',
And I had to answer 'yes.'

He told me to get off my fanny
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up...
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick....
I was just admiring my work...
I didn't mean to 'click.'

But click, I did, and oops I found
A real absorbing site.
That I got SO way into.
I was into it all night. <>

Nothing's changed except my mouse
It's very, very shiny.
I guess my house will stay a mess...
While I sit here on my hiney!!
