Really, is there anyone out there that isn’t right now?
What an amazing accomplishment- 8 gold metals, 7 world records, and 1 olympic record! I had the privilege to see each race.
I LOVE THE OLYMPICS!
What makes it all the sweeter is that he seems like a really nice guy. Congrats, Michael!
The crafty bug has set in- so I’m churning out projects. Yippee! A couple of Creative Team calls have kicked me in the rear to get some lingering hybrid projects done. So, here’s the first:
I resisted for so long, but the Provo Craft lunch box finally sucks me in. Terri did a tutorial for embellishing these at a retreat a few years ago, and now I’m embracing it! I made previous ones with 2 sheets of 12×12 paper (trimmed) to wrap it, and I was hoping to avoid that by using my Epson 13″x19″ paper. It was about 4″ too short, so I had to make a filler piece for the back. I’m wondering if I should buy the paper on the roll for a project like this. Paper on the roll might be nice for paint cans, too…
Another reason for kicking out hybrid projects: I suggested a “Book Club” of sorts on Columbus Scrappers revolving around the special issue of Simple Scrapbooks magazine: Mini Albums in an Evening. What a completely fun book!!!!! It’s one of my best purchases in a long time- it covers a wealth of mini album types (chipboard word, Cosmo Cricket mini, Maya Road, acrylic, etc) and offers a TON of ideas. I have lots of ideas, and not nearly enough time to do them all!
We have a Club Meeting on Friday, August 29th starting at 5pm at the Whetstone Branch of the library (in Clintonville). It’s going to be a show and tell session, and I’m going to bring coasters and the Bind-It-All to make coaster albums. You bring 8 4″x4″ pieces of paper/cardstock, pics to fit, and matching embellishments. Come join us!!!
Natalie starts Kindergarten on Thursday! Stay tuned for more on that!
Finally, a philanthropy note- Labor Day weekend is coming up, which means the annual telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. I always watched it before when I could, but now I’m personally invested as well, now that I’m in a lab that’s working on treatments for Duchenne. Help out MDA- treatments are on the horizon and it’s going to take BIG BUCKS to get those treatments to those who need them!
More new pages!
Talk to y’all soon!
