Well, for those inquiring minds who want to know what I got at IKEA, I hate to disappoint you, but it wasn't much! We did have fun; it is an awesome place to shop, get ideas, and dream! My wish to find some storage items for paper was not fulfilled! I guess I have to go to a craft store like Joann's or something. I just don't know why it is so difficult to find upright storage for 12x12 papers. I have some rolling file carts but wanted to find a cabinet/drawer. Maybe someone out there has some suggestions.
I did get a cute pillow for my couch in some soft neutral colors, which is a departure from my usual style, but for the summer, I thought it was fun! I also got some household stuff, some magnetic thingies to put on the wall & hold paper clips, etc., and some other odds & ends. The traffic wasn't bad on 95, however, as soon as I pulled on, a huge tractor trailer pulled in front of me to get off, so once we had that hair-raising experience over, the rest was a breeze. White Marsh is easy to get to and is only an hour away, so I am sure I'll be dragging DH down there some time!
My card today (then I gotta go to work) is for the Color Challenge, which is Wild Wasabi, Taken with Teal and White. I found some DP in my Glitter Mat Stack from DCWV that sort of matched, so I just went forward. It is a little busy for my tastes but I need to try to do some different things occasionally! I thought it would be good for a boy's birthday. I punched out circles from the cardstock for my embellishments and added some Stickles....which I never use, for some reason. I think because they take forever to dry, so I whacked them with my heat tool! Ribbon was a RAK from Denise -- thanks sweetie! And THANK YOU for looking & have a blessed day!
