Adios 2010!!

Just a quick post to wish you all a Blessed, Happy and Wonderful 2011!

Happy new year comment from FLMnetwork.com

..... And just for fun, the top three crafty things I learned in 2010:

1.  Play with your existing stash of papers, stamps and embellies!  YES!  It's always nice to drool over and buy the latest and greatest, but eventually "too much of a good thing" takes over and the folks from "Hoarders" will hit you up for an episode of filming!  *Use what ya got!*

2. Scan the craftroom floor for lost/dropped/scattered embellies! ....... stepping on an oversized brad in the bottom of the heel is not a pretty site - it hurts!!  A LOT!!  {and not to mention you are now 1 brad short! *grin!* }

3.  If you give a puppy an empty cardboard spool to play with, he'll want some ribbon to go with it.  And if you give him that scrap ribbon to go with it, he will run through the house, happily tossing it in the air.  And as he's running, he'll spot another roll of ribbon and not understand why the  silver, embossed  shimmer ribbon @ $11.99 for baby shower invites isn't the same ...... :)   

Adios 2010 ......... 2011, I welcome you!!!!

  12. This post made me laugh! Thanks for sharing it. Happy New Year to you!

  13. Kelly, you make me laugh so hard! I LOVED this post! They are all great learnings, though...I can relate to all of them. I think we should all share our strangest injuries related to this hobby. That could be very interesting...although maybe everyone isn't as accident prone in the craft room. Oops! Most of mine would be heat gun and paper piercer related, ouch! Thanks for the laughs! Happy 2011!
