Thanks for the 2 budgets! So tired from work today. I'll figure out the community education budget as soon as I get a head count on classes. Person budget is tbd.

A HL will be opening up in Duluth in early 2013. So excited!

Tammy, I've been lusting over that bird punch for at least 6 months, so it's not likely I'll get over it.

How is your hand? Are you ok? do you need stitches?

go put that fire out Tina!

what do you mean by "change" Lesley - did you forget something? I am pretty easy - but yes if something big comes up or you forgot something but if it just to go over for the sake of going over - nope!

Kelly - the hand is surprisingly good today - I had it wrapped tightly last night and there was only a bit of blood on the gauze this morning. Nothing today and it has sealed well - no pain and so far no sign of infection.

I wanted to change my wish list to replace FP Hopscotch with Carta Bella Traditions. It's less expensive, for one thing.

I have been digging in my stash more. And I got creative today. I needed leopard print paper to die cut in my Cameo, but didn't want to go to Js or HL for one piece of paper, because we all know how that turns out. SOOOO, I did a search for a leopard print on line, intersected it with the shape I'm cutting, and will just make it a print and cut. I swear, my Cameo replaces so many scrappy things.

And I would like to add a twist to mine: no Thickers. No looking for $1.49 Thickers at TJ Maxx or Big Lots. I have plenty, and then I hoard them because I'm afraid to be short a letter on a page. I'm running out of storage for them.

I'm so serious about this that I will double my deduction for any package of Thickers I buy.
