Spent all night working and I finally finished one of my mediums! I'm in the process of cutting things out for the other medium. This is alllllll that I am doing this weekend. Like I literally woke up on saturday, did some stalking and just crafted. I suppose getting some homework done would be wise. But this is a lot more fun!

Wowie! I didn't realize the sendout date is so soon, and I'm going to be on vacation! Luckily I already know what I'm gonna make and can take the supplies with me or get them once I get there. Yay for Hobby Lobby!

Went out today and yesterday and got the few supplies I needed. Got home from shopping today and realized I'd forgotten an inkpad! Rats! Luckily my dad, who has one of everything, said 'Oh I think I have one' and pulled out this awesome inkpad in a metal case with stamps, ink bottles, etc from when my grandpa was a Pepsi distributor in the 50s. The ink was still good! So the ink on this one item is truly "vintage." Smiley Everything else is coming out well, can't wait to send!

I'm so glad you liked what I sent...I was so confused that I couldn't find the pics in the gallery and then went hunting here!  Actually after making your bunting I decided to make 25 metres of it for my wedding next year! Wink
