Today we went on a little road trip. Destination: My Daughter's Wish; Walnut Creek, CA. We made a little stop here in Danville at a place called Stamper's Warehouse. With 4 scrappers you'd think one of us would remember to take out the camera at My Daughter's Wish, nope. :) We had fun! (we alwayd do!) The next place we plan on visiting is the Hambly Screen Printing place. :)

Go in and register, hang out for awhile, make some new BFFs :) I'm so excited!
Shrink art (available at craft stores)
4- by 11-inch piece of felt
Embroidery floss and needle
Small stick, about the size of a pencil
Decorative beads (optional)
1 yard of twine
Time needed: About 1 to 2 Hours
1. With colored pencils and following the directions on the package, help your child design a piece of shrink art that will be roughly 1 1/2 inches wide after it's baked down to size. Before baking, punch 4 holes in it. 2. Form the pouch by folding up the bottom 4 inches of the felt. Sew the sides together. 3. Lay the stick where the flap folds over the pouch and sew the stick in place. 4. If you like, string a few beads on the twine and tie off the ends. Tie the twine onto the stick as shown. 5. Sew the shrink art onto the flap or the front of the pouch. Tips: Instead of using shrink art, you can decorate the bag with beads or buttons.
Thought I'd share this too! (Family Fun Magazine Newsletter)

Here is a game for the kids to play today to keep them from boredom..
Add a twist of mystery and excitement to a classic game of red light, green light.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Ball, hat, or coat
HOW TO PLAY:
1. Have one player, the detective, stand 50 feet or more away from the other players, the fugitives. 2. To start, she yells "Out of jail" and then turns her back to the fugitives, who begin to advance toward her to steal her badge (a ball, hat, or coat that sits at her feet). 3. At any moment and without notice, the detective can whirl around and shout "Freeze!" Then, the fugitives must halt completely. Any unlucky fugitive caught moving must sit down where he or she stood and remain in this "jail" for the rest of the game. 4. The first fugitive to reach and steal the detective's badge becomes detective for the next game.

My wonderful friend, Velma came over one evening with some of her ribbons gloriously ironed and organized onto these card thingys. Well I had ribbon EVERYWHERE. I had it in glass containers, baskets, ribbon cards, in my closet, on my shelves, in scrappy bags... so I gathered up the shorter stuff and pinned it to a big safety pin and hung it on a BIG ring. I plan on hanging the rings from decorative knobs, but that will come later. :) Now I can see it. I will still keep the longer ribbons on their spools. I have not ironed them and I don't think I will.
I was going along with the Pantone color of the day, but they all seem to be GREEN. So I used their color of the day as a springboard and came up with this purply shade. Maybe I'll post another scrap pattern later.
This whole holiday weekend thing through me off. So the Maybe Monday from yesterday could be a Maybe Tuesday...you could do a layout and journal about dinner time at your house. :) Maybe even take a pic this evening to use. Let's see your stuff.

To everyone else keep posting comments for chances to win.
Ok here's the color of the day and a challenge to go along with it. So Maybe this Monday you could think back into your childhood and scrap your first memory. This will be challenging because you probably don't have a pic of that memory, but I'm sure you could capture a new image that RESPRESENTS that memory. Have fun! Here's mine...

I think of Napoleon Dynamite whose "lips hurt real bad." His brother told him to see the school nurse for chapstick because she had like three sticks in her drawer. YUCK.
