I started summer school today. One week off was way too short of a break! It's fun to meet the new staff and kids though. I did have a great time at the scrapbook convention last Friday. Came home with some new ideas and a couple of tote bags of new products. My favorite was the Heartwarming Vintage Collection from Crafty Secrets . I was inspired by their great collection to rum age through my things to make up this new little kit that you can find at E-scape and Scrap:

I'm out of school for the summer!!! Woo-hoo!!!!! and I'll add a few more!!!!!! I love my job, but all the excitement of the last day of school makes me feel like I'm 10 years old again. With summer comes my resolution to pay some attention to this poor blog. Maybe I can get in the habit of writing and keep at it once August comes.
Tomorrow I'm going to the Great American Scrapbook Convention with a Vicki and Jamie. We're not taking any formal classes just going to shop, shop, shop. I know I'll come home with lots of new ideas and motivation to design all summer.
Here's to summer! Have a great one!

A Wee Bit of Magic

I made a new blog topper and switched over to the new template system last night. Still have some bugs to figure out though like how to add back in my blinkie links, clock, etc. My HTML comprehension is not at the same level as this template!

Blackberries Wanted

Daily Blog Prompt from Sempson: What was the last food you craved?
The last three days I have been wanting fresh blackberries. One of my friends picks them in her neighbor's back yard and has been bringing them for her lunch. I guess she hasn't noticed me drooling on the other side of the table. Hmmm . . . think I might link her to my Blog tomorrow!

Today was a great day. It's my "baby's" birthday. He turned 23 and we had a wonderful dinner with him and my sweet daughter-in-law.

Ads From the Past

I've been having fun looking through a couple of old, 1911 & 1908, magazines. The best part is the advertisements. It's amazing how many of the products are still around. There were ads for Jello, Kellogg's Toasted Corn Flakes, Heinz, Vaseline, & Domino Sugar among others. There are ads that make me wish I could still get the product. Beautiful lace and my favorite a set of gorgeous modular walnut bookcases for $25 each. Then there are the ads that make me glad that we've made progress since 1911. There's the Folding Bath Tub, the Magic Foot Drafts that promise to cure Rheumatism, and Baby's Rubber Outfit. Worst of all is The Natural Body Brace. It promises that it 'cures ailments peculiar to women' and believe me it looks anything but comfortable!
All that magazine browsing inspired this kit:
