A Fun Surprise...

I've started my closet clean/purge project, and it's not easy to stay on track. But there's a fun reason why.

Last month, I blogged about this and late Monday afternoon two boxes from Spellbinders arrived on my front doorstep (sooner than I had expected them to arrive-that was the fun surprise!). One box contained a pretty, new Grand Calibur machine, and the other box was filled with newly released die many die sets (are you picturing that cute teacher on the Target commercial as she says "so much glitter?"). I'm still gobsmacked that I won this! 

So-back to my dilemma. Have you ever tried telling a crafter they have to clean before they can play with new toys?  Didn't work well for my mom when I was young, and it still doesn't work so well now-even when I'm the one telling myself! LOL  So there's a little bit of cleaning time, a little bit of play time...a little of this, a little of that going on in the little "korner" this week.

In the meantime, here are a couple more cards - it's still pretty hot here, but I'm dreaming of cooler autumn temps already and having fun with fall colors!
