Now to what you really come to see---another fun card! This one was made using some great new paper from October Afternoon. It's truly amazing what a new piece of paper can do for you! And if you have at least a dozen or so (maybe more), well you are ready to take flight! I pulled out Ahoy Matey from SU for this card. I always fall back to this set for "kid" friendly cards.
That's it for today. I'm off to do something. Anything will do. Maybe finish the wash or even empty the clean dishes from the dishwasher. I didn't cook last night. Evan took us to Babe's and we feasted on eating out!

Nothing new to report in the ever staying the same Bloom Zoo. Barry did have several calls about one job that opened up. That's what happens, but still it's hopeful. I'm going tomorrow to see if I can get in a paying medical study. Bad knee! Lucky me!
Well that's all folks!

#1) You want it, therefore you need it.
#5) "If you're not sure you should buy something.........for *whatever* reason........if someone else says they have it and *like* it........then you *have* to buy it!"
#6) If you are compelled to calculate total dollars spent on stamping and related items, never count things that are not actual stamps.
#11) If everyone else wants it, even if you don't know what it is, and you find it on sale, buy it ALL.(Editor's note: This phenomenon is widely known as the SALE factor, and is the only situation in which the Stamper may completely ignore Rules of Acquisition #6 and #7, and announce gleefully how much money s/he has SAVED by purchasing said items. (This suspending of the rules is dependent upon: a) the actual percentage off, b) the total dollar amount spent c) the projected reaction of partner/other interested party. For more detailed worksheet on Rule Suspension see Stampers' Rules of Acquisition Handbook - Chapter 9, Sub-section C, Paragraph 14, and modelon facing page.)
#12) NEVER, NEVER let your DH read the Stamper's Rules of Acquisition........for reasons OBVIOUS to the seasoned stamper. For those of you who are newbies....does "the gig is up"mean anything to you?
#13) Reconciling yourself early to the fact that every trip to the stampstore costs a minimum of $40, even if your intentions were to buy just one sheet of sticker paper, will save you much anxiety and false guilt.
#17) You can't take it with you applies only to money. Begin getting your loved ones accustomed to the fact that you intend to be buried with your stamps.
#24) The iron is NOT for clothes. Anyone who uses an iron for clothes is excommunicated from theStamper's Union. (Editor's note: You may avoid excommunication by following subsection B pursuant to rule #23 which in layman's terms translates as "you may use an iron for its original perverted purpose only by purchasing an auxiliary iron. However, only the old iron may be used for household purposes. Afore mentioned perverted purpose is not one that is condoned by the Stamper's Union and should be performed ONLY by support staff personnel.)
#29) A corollary to number 18 above: Stamping actually saves money. Stamping promotes the do-it-yourself philosophy. This is evident in the activities of mounting your own, carving your own, and making your ownpaper. By applying "Blondes' Logic" it can be concluded that you can'tafford not to stamp.
#31) If you happen upon a super rs-related deal somewhere and you buy enough for you and all your friends and your friends buy some from you--the money they give you is free to be used to purchase MORE RS stuff, since it has been "laundered" and isn't technically, coming out of your pocket!
#32 If, in the course of purchasing something, you also purchase something for a friend, the cost of the friend's merchandise is totally exempt from record-keeping. When she pays you back, it's "free money" and may be used for any purpose, particularly if it involves stamping supplies.
#33 A corollary to Rule #32 is that the money the friend pays back is governed by the laws of "money saved," i.e., money you spend for someone else is "money saved" when returned to you,since you now did not spend that money. The proper phrasing is, "Honey, I bought some cardstock for Sue and she paid me back...boy, did I save some money!"
#34 "Screw it, buy them all!"

I have been hooked on these little photo albums for a while now and today I want to show you one that I made for a special lady in our lives. This one is for Tina, Larry's wife. Yes, the mother of our grandchildren, and a wonderful person! They are the one's who got married at Disney and have spent a lot of vacations down in Disney World. I thought she could add a few pictures to this little book and it won't take up a lot of room in her handbag! All the paper came from a scrapbook show that I went to several years ago with my friend Gretchen. The paper was just sitting there minding it's own business and now it's finally got a home! The large Mickey heads came from a die cut package I bought a few years ago also but in San Diego while visiting our friends. The tiny heads are a punch. I love the way it turned out and I hope she will too!
Let's see, what else is new. Still having the hearing problems. Nothing seems to help. I don't have the hearing in either ear sometimes, and then maybe in one at another time. It gets so bad at times, I'm ready to scream, if I could only hear myself!
Well, I'm off to get ready for the Whimsie Doodles Blog hop tomorrow. Please make sure you come back. There's going to be a prize right on my own blog given out and I can't wait to share with you. So get those fingers ready to leave a comment and get a chance to win!
