First of all, I made another trip to the bookstore and of course did not leave empty handed (although I did leave empty walleted. lol) Here's what I picked up (not shown is a DVD copy of "How to Marry a Millionaire", one of my favorites!):
This is such a neat book on collage techniques!
Holy crap, how fabulous is Maureen O'Hara?!
Woo hoo, it's finally mine! lol I think I'm going to crochet a giveaway or two from this book for my Christmas In July blog party.
Speaking of which, thanks to everyone who have already signed up for my Christmas in July blog party! There's plenty of time to sign up, just make sure that you add the button to your blog and e-mail me at katamommy at gmail dot com to sign up! I've noticed some comments saying you're in but I don't want to add your blog until I get an e-mail. Don't want people yelling at me because I added their blog and they weren't seriously interested. I'm sensitive you know. :P So e-mail me to add your blog! I'm so excited about the presents I'm going to be giving away at my party! Whether or not you sign up your blog, everyone has a chance to win! *excited party fever dance* Get more details here!
I do have a little project to share with you all (go me!). I got this project from Marie Magazine, a magazine full of amazing crafts inspired by Marie Antoinette. They are shoes made from paper and then embellished. They looked so fantastic that I tried my hand at making one myself:
What do you think? They are so easy to make and the embellishment possibilities are endless!
All of my Mad Tea Partying a couple of weeks ago resulted in my winning this fabulous handmade pair of earrings from Judy at JMK Originals. I was shocked! I got them in the mail yesterday and could not believe how dainty and detailed they were, I do believe these will become a permanent addition to my Mad Tea Party next year!
Aren't they the sweetest things ever?! Check out her Etsy store here!
So let's dish "Bachelorette"! Is it me or does Jillian seem to be trying to convince the guys they should fall for her instead of the other way around? She's working awfully hard for these losers that don't seem to be making much effort at all. (Ed being the very slight exception) *sigh* Someone buy her a copy of "He's Just Not That Into You" stat! And I swear if Wes isn't beaten up at the reunion special I'll just pop a gut!
Well, I believe that's all for now. I was tagged by the marvelous Kathie at My Net Finds so I will save that for next time since this post is a mile long already...
I think I'll end this post with a question...
Was I ever this limber?!
I think I've only ever put my foot in my mouth metaphorically...
