So I've been stalking my partner EdelC and I see on her pinterest page this 'I Love You' collage.  It's a bunch of letters in different fonts and colors cut out from magazines, newpapers, ads, etc.  Really neat. 

I think to myself, that would be a great idea.  I can cut out all the letters and mail them as a DIY along with that modgepodge stuff.  It can be one of the eight little thingies for the first package.  It can represent me with my Reduce-Reuse-Recycle way of life.  Perfect, eh?  And I can make one for me too.

So I get my pile of papers and start cutting.  One hour later, I barely have enough letters for two lines.  Argh!  The husband is laughing at me, "I told you so."  I still have about 30 lines left.  That's another 15 hours of cutting, I'm guessing.  My fingers are hurting and so is my right foot.  My right foot?  What's going on with my right foot?  I look down and have a magazine staple sticking out of my right foot.  When was my last tetnus shot? 

Let's just say that the REUSE has turned into RECYCLE.  I can't tell you how many of my projects end up this way  Roll Eyes

I made a stop at good old Walmart on my way to work and purchased the last few things I need for package one.  I am going to be shipping it out on Friday

I've got all 3 packages finished.  I'll be shipping all 3 either tomorrow, or on the 15th.  Depends on how much the other 2 packages I have to ship tomorrow cost me.

I am at the lake on vacation for 11 days.  So far no crafting just fishing, reading and relaxation.  Much needed as the last few months of my life have been 60 plus hours of work each week.  I did manage to get started before I left home and brought 1 project with me.  Plans are to take a trip into some antique shops one day next week so I hope to score an item of something that I collect to send along in package 1.  Package one will not be sent until I return home, so close to the first deadline date!

I have 6/8 pieces picked/crafted for the first package. I have no clue about what to do for the others though...

I just realized I only need to find one more thing for package 1 after finishing up on a couple things that are sooo close to being finished.

Thanks to the PO, I won't be shipping until the 15th.  The PO is now on my sh*t list.  Don't ever make a mistake w/them, they will make you pay out the wazoo!  Something that should have cost me: $7.17 to ship, ended up costing me $12 and some change to ship, because they had to ship it twice!
