Earth hour, scrapping an enabler & an award!



So, Saturday night there was a world-wide earth hour. H and i sat on the couch, she working on a paper on her laptop, using battery power, me reading a book, both of us snuggling in blankets sipping hot tea, with only two lights on in the house and nothing else ... and we stayed that way for the most of the night, it was fun, we kept a candle glowing just to give the illusion of light and warmth, but we voted for the earth by shutting almost everything down. So what did you do? Read all about the global success of this event, just click the linky.

I finished the layout I did at the friday night crop. I am totally in baby mode, this one is a picture of me!



Sue sent me an e-coupon to Michaels ... i am not really a Michaels shopper but i do love Martha's punches ... so i went down fully expecting to buy a punch, but i found something I had been looking for for ages ... Bakers Twine! It wasn't much money and with the 50% off coupon it was even less ... but I have been searching for this everywhere ... i only see it on etsy, or chi chi high end ribbon stores. This stuff is so cute and you can make the tiniest bows ... and it looks great on tags. Martha's version doesn't come in the traditional colours other than red & white, but it does come in "Martha" colours ... so you know that they are pretty. Now i just cant wait to it! Thanks Sue, without that coupon i might never have found my bakers twine.



Kathy, thanks so much for the cool award ... you always know how to make my day!!! Now i have to think of 5 people to send this to ... 5 blogs that i love ... hmmmm, so some of you are going to be tagged more than once ... here are my picks
