More about Portland

As you know at the SCS dinner I had the chance to meet lots of fun people. One of them was Abbie. She sat at the table next to us and was, initially, by herself. We chatted and she was nice enough to give us one of her cards that she was going to swap that night...cool! The card is made with the stamp set Simply Said with Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, and Chocolate Chip cardstock. On the bottom she used a piece of vellum and stamped it with the little flowers. You can check out her blog HERE.

The other fun thing I received at the dinner was a door prize. Everyone was supposed to bring a door prize and then during the evening they would just pick one of the door prizes up off the table and call a name of a person there and they would receive that door prize. Quick, easy way to do it! Funny thing is...I felt like the girl who is last to be picked in PE class. Okay, I wasn't last but pretty darn close! Anyway, this is one of the clear window tins that are so hot right now. Papertrey Ink has some of the smaller size HERE. What is neat about this idea is that all you have to do to make this a really neat gift is wheel some address labels with the theme of your choice and then wrap the labels around your Hershey's Nuggets candy. Add a ribbon or two and you are all set. The person who made this must have known it was coming to me because in the little envelope is a Starbucks card. She also personalized the envelope by adding a stamp from the set Be Happy. What a fun and quick gift this is! the best part is that the receiver could reuse the tin if they'd like!

I'm taking one more day to kinda chill out. The doctor said I have a sinus infection...which I could have told you and I'm on double strength antibiotics. I can't totally chill out though because I have to take Jon to the DOL today to get his driver's permit. Yep, that is right...we'll have another teenage driver in the house soon! So, did you know that since our last names are different I have to 'prove' that I'm his mom? I'm trying to figure out how to go from last name #1 to last name #3. That is a lot of paperwork! I'm going to go through my files this morning to see what I can find to help me out. I'll also take pictures of the projects we made while in Portland so you guys can see them. While I was making them I wasn't sure if I liked them but now...I do!

So, you guys have a fantastic day! See you later! :o)
