The gingham dog went "bow-wow-wow!"
And the calico cat replied "mee-ow!"
The air was littered an hour or so,
with bits of gingham and calico"
(Eugene Field)


a whirlwind day!

What a day! Geri and I had a ball at the CK Convention. We each bought a couple of bags of goodies to use in our scrapbooking and card-making. Yeah! My goal was to buy a couple of Cuttlebug folders (I got one of the ones I've been looking for!), a refill of brown Stazon ink (couldn't find it) and to make as many make-it-take-its as possible to learn something new. I didn't learn anything new today, but I enjoyed it very much!

Then I've been reading the Stampin' Up! blogs about convention, and there is lots of news! Lots of new stamps, new punches, a new die cut machine in collaboration with Sizzix, exclusive dies for the die cut machine, and lots, lots more!

Today's photo is of my summer centerpiece for the dining room table. I love decorating my tables every couple of weeks and using a variety of materials that I find in nature or yard sales, make, buy at craft stores....definitely these centerpieces are always eclectic! Stan loves this one especially...because he loves his sailboat so much!

Life is certainly good!
