Memorial Day Weekend Update

I hope you're having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! We are having a great time!


Jessica and Dave set the all-time world record for consecutive catches with the Trac-Ball. They caught 21 in a row! Way to go guys!


I met my girlfriend Kathy for the rubber stamp flea market, and this is what I got. Take a look at what $27 buys! I got FOUR Stampin' Up sets! Two of them, I've never even seen before! I got an organization container for the girls for $1, and I got FOUR Copic markers for $1 each. They are brand new, so I just couldn't resist. I feel like I've gone over to the dark side! I'm curious about them, so I just had to buy them! I'm not sure what I'll be able to color with the selection that I purchased, but I'm sure I'll figure something out! I'm actually glad she had just the four! Who knows what would have happened if she had more! Anyway, I love what I purchased, and I'm thrilled with the bargains! I can't wait to play with my new stamps!!

I hope you're having a fantastic weekend! It's beautiful outside here in Illinois. We still have the parade tomorrow! If you live in the United States, please take the time tomorrow to acknowledge the meaning of Memorial Day! Have a great day, a fantastic weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

We've had beautiful weather here too today for the first time in ages. We made the most of it and went out to the park for an hour or two.

After lunch I got the kids out washing the cars. They were absolutely soaked by the end of it but they had great fun.

Love all your crafty bargains. Have fun playing with them all.

Have a good Memorial Day.

Glad you and your family had a wonderful Memorial Day, Carol. Mine was nice...very quiet but nice.
I am curious as well about Copic Markers. I look at the wonderful colorings of Sharon and I think I must try them.
Great rubber stamp flea market buy, girl.
