Well, I can imagine it seems like I've just been sitting on my behind not getting anything done. But contraire!! I did crochet a scarf for a friend in the hospital, and I did manage to order some scrapbooking goodies!!
Let's talk about the scarf first. Just look at this yummy yarn. It's Yarn Bee Danielle "camino". A beautiful heathery ombre...
I had intentions of making a prayer shawl for my friend, but time and yarn constraints changed those plans. So instead I opted for a prayer scarf. I found the scarf pattern on Ravelry. Here's the LINK to the free pattern. I had just a bit of a problem working the border, but I did my own thing and I think it worked out pretty cute.
It's one of those scarves that looks all curly when it hangs around your neck. I was really excited about this and can't wait to do another one. Here's a picture of it laid out flat.
So now. On to the CTMH haul. Since June is THE time to buy stamps I had to load up on those. (Buy two get one FREE for the month of June 2012).
Here's a dinosuar set (D1505 Roar!) that I knew I had to get for my son. He is so into them right now. And the alpha set (E1023 Varsity Alphabet) I just fell in love with because it looks like collegiate letters and I was envisioning all the graduation, monogram, and birthday cards I could make.
Now looking at the next two sets you think to yourself 'is she planning a cross country motorcycle ride?' but the answer would be no. I just think that US map (D1503 Adventure USA) will come in handy sometime and well...my dad has a bike (C1483 Born to Ride) so I know there will be pictures of the kids on a motorcycle to scrapbook soon.
These next stamps are just so fun and versatile. I may use the wreath stamp (C1473 Remarkable Wreath) in my Christmas cards this year. And the little tire swing hanging from a tree?? Stop it! So cute. (D1467 Trees and Things)
Now this is a Workshop-on-the-Go kit. These are a really great way to get some paper, embellishments and a stamp set for a really great price. And I ADORE the little seahorse and turtle in this set. (G1036 Footloose WOTG)
I saw these adhesive-backed pearls and nearly squealed. They are a quick and easy way to add a little something special to a layout or card.
I have been pining for some baker's twine for a while now. It's all over the place and when I saw that CTMH carried it I was in scrapbooking heaven!!
Last, but not least, I ordered inks in all the colors that CTMH has come out with since I left them last time. Lovely lovely colors! I can't decide my favorite, but I love Lagoon and Pear SO much!
Can't wait to dig in!!
