The past two weeks seemed to morph together. Was 2 weeks ago that I met Lexi? Oh my. I *know* I didn’t blink. Well pre-Lexi coming to town, I was working on my swap card for that gathering, my door prize, the Halloween sneaks for A Muse’s release and probably a million other things I can’t remember. One of the things I realized is that I didn’t show you my door prize.
Well, I did 3 similar things for that night… a door prize, a birthday gift, and a thank you gift. Everyone had to bring a door prize (handmade or crafting supplies). My packaging was handmade but my insides were supplies – stickles, A Muse Ribbon, A Muse Pretty Little Papers, A Muse twinkle stickers, an A Muse stamp, and some stamped images of the retired Lifeguard chair, buoy, and you’re a lifesaver sentiment.
So, let’s talk about this a bit… I have 20 some of these paint cans in my stash. Got them last fall. I thought then, that wouldn’t it be great to make these all up and then have them ready to go in a pinch. Um, yeah, great plan. Poor execution.
Oh wait, the Olympics were on during this time! People often ask me how do I get so much done with small children around, etc. Well, the easy answer is that I don’t sleep much. But the long answer is that I’m very efficient with my non-Mommy time, which I’m certain you other moms completely get. And I’m also one of those people that is constantly doing something. Another thing I do is I don’t keep my laptop on when in my stamp room and I don’t have a television in there, either (hence I hardly watch any tv during the day!). But back to they Olympics. I HAD to watch. But I can’t just sit and watch and do nothing. Unless it’s a chick flick, then I can. 🙂 So, what can I do while sitting downstairs (away from my stamp room) and not bring the entire room down with me. Hmm,…. I know… COVER previously mentioned stash of acrylic paint cans! I didn’t do all 20… but I did do 9 (8 shown here). I didn’t finish out the tops because I don’t know what the occassion will be for. They are SO easy to do with the A Muse 8.5×11 papers! I love the kitchen papers!
I really need to use up more of my stash of stuff. SHEESH!
Thanks for stopping by.
