Hey, everybody! My blogposts are becoming few and far between it seems. We've been busy readying our house to list it for sale and finally did that about a week ago. This week, we've been doing some last minute touch ups on paint and trim. Tomorrow, I'm going to spend the afternoon polishing the wrought iron door and window accents with liquid car wax, a tip I found out about from my super smart friend, Google. Turns out I should have been doing this once every six-months. Why didn't you tell me sooner, Google? Maybe you're not so smart after all. Oh, I didn't ask? Sure, turn it around on me now.
Saturday, we're having a garage sale. Of course, we don't know how to have a plain old garage sale like regular folk. Instead, ours will be more like a party. We've already invited our friends and plan on having plenty of donuts on hand to entice the masses. We'll pass on having coffee, because knowing me, in my heightened garage sale state, I will no doubt sell the coffee maker if someone makes me an offer...lol! That would make Kirk very sad (and grumpy). Last time we had a garage sale, we started at 8:00am and sold everything by 9:15am and there was no short supply of stuff. Hope this one goes over just as well. Oh, and let me just add that I will have some craft stuff for sale (stamps, embellishments, etc.) so if you're in the Albuquerque area, stop by 3840 Sunbird Dr NW and pay us a little visit. Bring cash...hahaha!
Okay, enough house stuff...I did actually steal away a few hours yesterday to make this card for my sister's boss. She had originally requested a Ninja themed Easter card. Yeah, I know, a little difficult to round up images for that, so I opted for this wonderful digi image called Karate Boy from Mo's Digital Pencil. While I was perusing Mo's site, I ended up plopping 6 other images in my cart by accident (yeah, right...accident my tuches)! I couldn't resist. Hopefully I will find some time to play with them in the next few weeks. Oh, and do you want to know what I received in return for this card? 3 dozen fresh chicken and duck eggs! Yep, that's a pretty fine trade, if you ask me ;D Love this bartering stuff. We should totally go back to that way of life.
Okay, that's it for me. Catch ya later! Stay crafty!
