Definately the best birthday surprise a scrapper could wish for.....a Clip it up!!!! This thing is HUGE!!!! Thank you sooo much to Michelle, Felicity and Vita for this!! I am truly sooo blessed. I have drooled over it but being me, I would never have parted with that much money for scrap storage....I would have rather spent it on scrap supplies. So this was a perfect pressie for me.....truly perfect! I have spent so much time working out what to put on it....lol.....I think I can fill up 2 of these units with my stash...bad bad me!!!
Other yummy pressies from lunch yesterday. Beautiful handmade cards....white one with the yellow Frangipani flowers was made by Michelle and everyone at lunch signed it. The pale creamish one with the stamped and cut out bouquet of flowers with bling centres is made by Felicity. I swear, this woman put it in an envelope and told me to open it at home because her card is no good. Oh come on....Felicity...liar liar pants on fire, your card absolutely rocks!!! Jenni Bowlin stamped card from my birthday sister Jane and the blue card with the gorgeous bow is a Katie Toland original.
Jane made me a felt bag and a circle journal album which I have to work on....it has contact details in it...so kind of like a scrappers address/contact book....I handed out all the blank pages yesterday, so hopefully they will come back soon. Jane also gave me some of her gorgeous Crafty Matters ceramics. How yummy are they????]
Shirley gave me some yummy Lavender smelly stuff....I love Lavender smelly stuff....yummo!!! And pinkalicious smiggle goodies from Jess and Katie. And the other bestest pressie a scrapper can get....a years subscription to Creating Keepsakes from my great friend Julia. Thanks Hon!!
Ok.....I know many of you have been waiting for this......the 4 guess bags I got for my birthday!!! How yummy are these??? I think my Brother in law chose very very well for me. The only thing I don't like is the huge padlock on the brown bag in the front...so that is coming off. It even comes with keys which are hanging on the side!!! It reminds me of a prison cell lock...for a prisoner who has been sentenced to life....lock it and throw away the keys....tee hee...so the lock is coming off....maybe I'll keep it for an altered project one day.
I have a thing for bags.....love bags....nice bags....I'm a bag girl and love guess bags.....want to know how many I have? 10....yup.....10......must have cost me a fortune???? I've actually only bought one and that was last week when I went to the 50% off sale. All the other bags have been given to me by my BIL....why???? coz he worked there. It was his last day with that company last week....very very sad...no more bags....sob. I told him that he should go work somewhere that has cool stuff as well so that we can buy it for family discount. LOL! My boys want him to work at Industrie, Mossimo or French Connection. I want him to go back to work with Jag/Colorado !!
And lastly....this is what DH and the kids got me....PJs.....I desperately needed pjs....warm pjs. Funnily enough, I've never been much of a pj person.....I kid you not....and tmi....but I sleep in tshirt and undies...year round...undies and tshirt. But last year, I really felt the cold....and shut up...it's not the age....lol....but when Dad was here and went through his clothes, he put a pair of flanalette pjs in the donation pile. I rescued them.....perfectly good pjs....white with plummish brown stripes in them....I wore them a lot....so much so that I started hinting to Joseph that I could do with some proper winter pjs. So he surprised me yesterday with PJs from Sussans....ok...the pic above.....he got me the stripey pink pj pants....and with it he got a pale pink long sleeve top....and .....a long fluffy pink dressing gown....oh man...it feels soo warm and sooo soft...but it gave me the heebeegeebies....I can't be surrounded by that much pink puff!!! And I'm fat.....picture a pink powerpuff walking around...let me tell you...not a good look. So I took the pale pink top and the pink powerpuff robe back to sussans and exchanged it for the aqua pjs set and the latte short dressing gown. Yummy....they're swishing around in the washing machine now ...getting all nice and clean before I don them!!
