Yesterday was a real test of patience for me. I don't know about you, but when I send in an order for Stampin' up, or anything really, it's all I can think about until it's delivered. I go to the UPS website and track that package almost every mile of the way!! Then arrival day comes--THAT is the longest day of all! And a long day it was, the UPS lady didn't come until 5:15 p.m.! Every time I heard a truck go by I ran to the door, hoping it was my long awaited box! Anyway, as you have probably guessed THE BOX finally came, and the UPS lady that I was almost hating all day, suddenly became my most favorite person in the world!!
Do you know that feeling?? I'm guessing some of you do!!
So I opened my treasure and all the worries of the day just melted away!!
Today, after a very emotional yesterday, I have managed to get in a couple of challenges. The first is yesterdays sketch challenge over at splitcoaststampers.com.
I don't make a lot of baby cards, but I thought I would try some with the cute carriage in Stampin' Up!s Fun and Fast Notes. I wasn't so sure how I liked them at first, but they're growing on me.
Then today's challenge, also at Splitcoast, is to include birds in our projects. So I finished putting together some more double pocket bags that I had made for the craft fair. These are so fun to make, I just love them! And that's my fave bird from SU's Touch of Nature, which is retiring soon. Here is the tutorial that Jenn Diercks put together. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/double_pocket_bag/
Well, I'm off to play with my new toys-- I'll share them with you soon!! Have a wonderful evening and don't forget to smile a lot:)):):)
