What the Hob Lob?!

On my weekly trip to Hobby Lobby, I noticed something strange last week.  The first few aisles were empty and workers were adjusting shelves etc.  Now this was nothing too out of the ordinary, but when I went in this week and discovered what they were preparing for I almost had a coronary. I turned down one of the first aisles and these gentlemen were staring at me.
The two creepy gentlemen and their shoe/ornament collections.
Christmas items!! In June!! Every year it just gets earlier and earlier I think by 2014 they will just leave Christmas items up all year.   If I burn myself every time I get in my car it is too early to think about winter. 

After my Christmas shock I went on to make my purchases.  I got some pretty amazing paper and card stock on sale.
Paper and such.
Close up of paper. 
I also got some foam stamps.  I think they will work out better for my clip board  painting that regular stamps. 
Paisley, of course.
Circular design.
So there you have it.  Once I start another clip board I'll make sure and show ya'll the progress.  Hope ya'll are having a great week and remember....
He he he.

Recruitment Time!!

We are half way through summer and it's time to be gearing up for recruitment again! Last year I had some posts about recruitment and I think everyone liked them.  So, I thought I'd put up the links to the posts from last year and see if there are any recruitment topics that ya'll think it would be beneficial to write about.

Recruitment Posts:

So, again let me know if there is anything ya'll want to know about and I'll post it!

Crafty Beginnings

As I am anxiously waiting for law school to start (58 days! Eek!) I decided I wanted to have a non-reading hobby.  Not that I'll have tons of time to do it, but I think I need to have something outside of school to do.  Usually I read in my spare time, but I don't think that is the best escape for school.  So I have started to craft.  Now I'm sure your thinking "You're starting crafting now?! Lame." I've always wanted to be super crafty, but just never took the time.  Now I have started.  These are my first couple of things, so please be kind.

My first card for my cousin's 30th birthday.
Front of a clip board.  You can't see very well but I went a little overboard with the stamps...
Back of clipboard. 
Gift bag.
There you have it.  My first crafty creations.  I am looking for any craft blogs for ideas and tutorials if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear!

Purse Peek-a-Boo

I thought it might be fun to take a look into my purse.  Now I will admit I did just clean my purse, so there aren't the usual 15 receipts from Sonic floating around and I have down sized from my giant Vera Bradley tote.  My purse for right now is a red Cynthia Rowley that I've had since high school.  I like it for the summer because it's red and sparkly.  So, here's a peek-a-boo into my purse.

My favorite red purse.

Make-up bag.
Contents of make-up bag: Jergens lotion, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, Neutrogena Naturals lip balm, and Hard Candy Visibly Wet lip pencil in Must Have.
Vera Bradley coin purse.  Clearly well loved with pink pen stains from a leak mishap.
Iphone with Lilly cover.
Thank You notes, note cards, stamps, and paper just in case I need to write a quick note.
As you can see it's not too much and very organized (at least for the next few days).  I'll have another peek-a-boo when I switch purses again.
