Yesterday, I shared with you my Hey Chick Note Cards that I'm packaging as a collection for the fundraiser for Chatham Trades. (Read that blog here). I also promised that I'd share a video about how to make the box. Now...off to go make some more projects for Friday night.
*It's a good thing we celebrated Valentine's on Friday night. Nowhere on that lovely 'heart' chart does it say anything about receiving a stomach virus. And that's exactly what we both got! So, since I'm soon to go back to bed, I will leave you with this Stampin' Up! video featuring the *Inside the Lines Specialty Paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. And stay tuned...when I'm feeling better, I'll post some projects to coordinate, as well.
Be well, my friends. And happy stamping!
*Remember, Sale-a-Bration items are FREE with every $50 order. Shop now, or contact me to get your own pack of Inside the Lines Specialty Designer Series Paper.
This weekend, the Hubs and I decided we'd drive to Charlotte and surprise the Lad and take him to dinner. This needed a bit of coordination between us and his girlfriend. We arranged to call her when we got to campus, and we parked right next to his car and waited until they came downstairs. The look on his face as he realized who was parked next to him was priceless! We went to Pike's Soda Shop, a hip vintage soda shop and had a great time catching up on their winter semester so far.
Their specialty drink that night was Guinness and Coffee float. Of course, I had to try it. That is, I got to try it after the 3 others at the table tried it first. It was pretty good. Not every float comes with a 'sidecar' of leftover Guinness, either! The kitchen oops, and made two of them. The Lad and his Lady shared that one.
I never go empty handed, but since we were being spontaneous, I hadn't planned what to take. Luckily, I had some Valentine's treat bags that I'd made for my card class on Sunday. Each one held a Lindt Strawberries and Cream white chocolate truffle. Even the waitress commented on how cute the bags were!
That bring me to my video today. I was challenged by a group of demonstrators to start making and posting videos. It's been on my "to do" list for quite some time and I realized, I just had to start. It's not perfect; the hubs and I have some kinks to work out in regards to lighting and camera angle. But, it's not bad for my first one. I hope you enjoy it.
