So do we have a final compiled list of what everyone would like? I didn't know if it was okay to start making cards.

Wasn't that the list we got on the 9th?

My mother's day went well, The weather has been beautiful, perfect spring weather, early summer weather. I worked in my flower beds, washed about 14 loads of laundry and hung it out to dry (over three days) my daughter took off, so we didn't fight and I went shopping! Got my tax refund check. And today they had a Cuttlebug on sale and I've been wanting one for the past couple years, so I bought it! And then the local craft store, Pat Catan's has all their embossing folders on sale for $2.50 each, so I was able to get a few of those to get me started with cards. And because not all stores carry the Darice product line, hopefully, my cards will have something new. OH, and then they had these pearlized paper packs on sale for $2. They only had gold, pink and silver, but I got one of each color. Pads of 25 sheets, acid free.

You've been finding some great deals of your own down in your area, Pebbles. Isn't that one of the fun things about swaps, to see what others have and share that we don't?

I didn't realize they did any mail order. It was always like a small warehouse. They have cool stuff there that you don't find in stores. They always have those huge sketch or drawing pads, sometimes they'll have those rolls of paper that's 4-5' wide. Then they have sheets of beautiful hand made paper. I thought if I had money that would be cool for wall paper.

And then, some of their stuff, I swear, they've had since the 70's when I was in school!

I went to Hollo's today. I bought 60 envelopes for .08 a piece. It took me 45 min to pick out frickin' envelopes. There were other ladies in and out. I didn't know what size, what colors, what textures. Do I get the flat flaps, or the pointy flaps? Do I get the foil lined? I must have picked out so many different ones and then put them all back several times.

I also found some flowery satin ribbon for $1.49 a yard. The flowers are sort of puffy. I got one off white and one dark pink. I'm getting excited to start making cards!

I asked about their mail order and the lady said they at least a $20-25 min order and they ship using UPS starting at $5.

I finished my first Christmas card. Let me know if this is good for the swap or if I need to embellish more.

Christmas card By Lookin4newideas

Good thing I started my cards.. It took me 2 hours working on this one! Well, I did make several die cuts so when I get going, I can do a bit of an assembly line, like "thinking of you, etc.
