Howdy Ho Everyone! And some business

Did you make it through the weekend alright? I sure did. It was a beautiful fall weekend! I wanted to go to our local nursery Bi-Water Farm (it's a tradition each year) but I did not make it. I love to go there and see the animals and ride on the hay ride and pick out pumpkins. They even have a store there that sells fruits and veggies. Maybe sometime this week if the weather holds out ~ they say tonight it's supposed to be down to 28 degrees and we might get a flurrie or two Ü

This weekend we were a little distracted and kinda doing our own things. I worked on a project for Paper Wings. I also started a few cards, but did not finish them. I did do something that's been on my list for a while. We are a family of cough'rs... There is always someone who is coughing ~ lots of things here to be allergic to. They say that this is one of the worst places to live because of all the allergens in the air. I would rather all these allergens than the smoke, smog and uck back in California. But anyway, there is always someone with a tickle in their throat. So we buy lots of cough drops. Well, SU! had some paper a while back in a mini that I bought just because of the paper. My kitchen is decorated in apples, so I had to get the apple paper. And I've had this ugly can on the counter for a long time, so I covered it!

I used the SU! paper and some HUGE grosgrain ribbon that I aquired someplace. When I went to Hobby Lobby a while back I got this cool red ruffle ribbon, I had to add that. And for the lid I covered the top with red paper and made my little puff ball.

I take a spiral clip and just keep adding ribbon to it, tying it in knots. Go all the way around the spiral clip. Then I take a big glue dot from SU! (I love those dots) and attach the ribbon puff ball to a big button and that's all. I did take Mod Podge and cover the whole can, ribbon and all to protect it. You never know what might happen in a kitchen!!

Now, for an order of business.

Since The Angel Company has extended their double dip promo I came up with an idea! Well, first let me explain the double dip promo if your new to my blog. The double dip promo is when you hostess a workshop of $100.00 or more you will get not just 1 but 2 half off items from the catty and not just 1 but 2 hostess sets from the Level A sets.

So, the idea? Well, until December 3rd they are having their promo. So if you would like to take part in this, but don't want to spend the full $100.00 to score a workshop I will put together groups of 2 people. You spend only $50.00 (before s/h and tax) you will get 1 half off item and 1 Level A hostess set. How's that? When you think about it you will have a workshop for only $50.00!!!

If you are interested send me an e-mail! I thought that it was a great idea if I say so mself!

I guess I better be off. I've got to do some blog hopping too Ü

Have a great day!

Absolutely WAY too cute Joani! I love the idea of stamping things around your home. I never do that enough. That spiral clip ribbon puff ball is total genius. SO cute! Thanks for the great inspiration! :O)
