On the road again

Oh my it’s been so long since I’ve had a great morning of thrifting and I was able to get one today! Despite a sort of rough night with teething (or something) Tuesday I got up this morning and headed out with Sarah.
I found my all time favorite towels; yummy, yummy green. And the pink floral ones I thought would be fun for Tuesday. The vintage sheets will go well with some sheets I got in a vintage sheet swap I participated in:
That picture is of my favoritesβ€”see the rest on my flickr. Back to today:
I’m so excited about this light up santa! How cute is he, so jolly! I’m always looking for cool Christmas stuff, but it’s usually so expensive, he was only five bucks, and the perfectly colored green oranaments two dollars. The little shaker I’ll fill up with cinnimon and sugar. The lided measuring cup and metal coasters are new “toys” for Tuesday, she loves stuff like that. The step stool she’s still a ways off from being able to use. Question: what did you use before your kids were tall enough to use one of these, I think she needs to grow about a foot to get to the sink with this, and that’s going to take a while! I might have Bj build something… ideas?
The other thing I’ve been doing is getting excited about a new community on Big Picture. I signed up for the Library of Memories community, which is going to be full of prompts, ideas, and chat about using Stacy’s system (these two books talk about it). I worked on organizing my albums:
Updating the label holders and workign on title pages for albums/sections:
They are all this basic design. I think I made ten or so in the last few days:
So fun to look at pictures like that. And because my supplies were out…
A layout about missing doing fine art stuff.
And a layout about how much I love my little sparkle pants, or course. I finally used one of the fun half circle stitched pages Sarah and I made.
Sarah’s mom made me some of these crocheted hearts. Yes, you can all be jealous she is my friend now πŸ™‚ Actually it’s funny because we were going through my albums and she saw this layout. She said, “Oh I wanted those socks so badly” (I gave them away on here because they were too big for me) and I replied, “well why didn’t I give them to you?” And she said because we didn’t really know each other then. Sometimes it seems crazy I met a good friend like that online! Thank goodness she commented (hint hint) πŸ™‚
Also if the person is out there who got those socks… where are they? I never got pictures… I miss them!

  1. I have to agree with em, not sure if it’s the layout though, perhaps it’s just the cutie in the photo! I hope I can go thrifting with you next time… Love all the stuff you got especially light up Santa.

  2. All the layouts look great!! And I love the stamp you used that has the month/day/year. I might need to get my hands on one of those. How does the flower/heart hold up in books? Does it make them really fat? Where do you keep all your scrapbooks? You must have a lot of albums now. Have a great weekend!

  3. hooray for thrifting with friends! so much fun πŸ™‚ i’m glad we all got treasures – even katie! love the layouts, and i love the library of memories system you’re doing. each time i see parts of your “system” it makes me all the more curious. i’ll have to do some reading up on it.
    okay, back to cleaning so i can scrap and use the quickutz! i’m excited πŸ™‚

  4. Our Jo-Ann’s had that stamp as part of a Ki Memories set of date stamps… for 97 cents! I couldn’t pass it up! Those are most of my albums, really old (high school) and mini books are stored elsewhere, but the rest are right here in my craft den. I have eight pretty full books (12×12) and a couple of 8.5 x 11.

  5. Those are some awesome finds! My mom still has a santa like that, but it is HUGE. It is so cool. And I love the towels. I can’t tell you how many of those Ikea stools I have around the house. They are perfect for under your desk to rest your feet on too!
