Extra-Ordinary Goodness



Howdy!

How's the weekend goin'?

We had such glorious weather yesterday...so perfect for the girl's graduation party!  That was the end of my day...I was on-the-go all the way up until the party.  So, today will be filled with ton's of crafting.

I'm bloggin' live

again

I hope to concentrate on thank you cards this week for my girl to send out.

Here's no. 1:


I ♡♡♡ the color yellow.  Team it up with an aqua green and **sigh**.

I was inspired by the latest



Who doesn't love Lisa Spangler?!!!

I was inspired by her overall design.  

Do you want to see how I craft?

Yup, this is just for this one very clean and crisp card:


I tend to crafty by manufacturer...this is mostly American Crafts with, yes, SRM stickers.

I've been really good about putting it all away before starting the next card.  Well, I literally have to, or else I won't have any room for the next batch of goodies to work with.

Usually my posts are all complete for the week...so I don't typically chat about everyday stuff until the weekend, but lately I've been bad about that.  I need to chat about stuff since this is like my journal too.

  I wanted to share that I love to meet up with bloggie friends and a couple weeks ago 

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kimberly at one of my favorite stores, Ben Franklin!  Multi-tasking at its best, eh?  This girl helped me dehoard some lovelies, thanks for helping me out Kimberly!

I am lucky enough to work right next door to Sarah.  Who knew, it was funny when we discovered that little bit of info!  We finally got together, picked up lunch at the Pike Place Market and then went back to her building which has a gorgeous roof top deck!  It's always fun to talk craft geek with another person that shares your passion.  I especially loved hearing about Sarah's very fascinating job!

Just last week I met up with Katie!  We had lunch together and sat outside her office...I'm getting quite the tours of Seattle awesome offices!  It's fun to hatch plans with a fellow crafter:)

I've said this before and I'll say it again and again.  I love living in Washington state.  We're surrounded by water and mountains...awesome crafty companies/stores and awesome crafty people!

Make sure you pop by Kimberly, Sarah and Katie's blog's....They are all so chock full of crafty talent!!!!!
