It's been so long since I've made anything without coloring. I really need to get the rest of the SU spots and I don't know what I was thinking...I should of gotten the matching PTI ones too, lol.
I used scraps to make all of my tags...just small pieces I had left over from my cards. Things I learned:
- I need to make the To and From part separate from the tag. I stamped this on the back and then realized I couldn't sew through.
- I need permanent ink to use Stickles...though I probably won't invest in this since I rarely solid stamp anymore. So I opted for rhinestones instead.
I actually started this book before 61 Hours...but I didn't actually read the last few pages until after I finished 61 Hours, lol. I bought 61 Hours because I knew I would be done with this book soon, but I guess I just forgot to actually finish it before I started my next book. I actually got this one from paperbackswap.com.
This book is about a lady in her mid-30's and gets laid off from her job. She was a VP of a huge corporate company and it shows how she went from a six figure income to doing temp jobs. It's totally chick lit and funny, but being a business major and into finance, I found it entertaining and cute.
Lastly, it's the beginning of the month and it's time to check in with my goals. I knew I had skipped October, but looking back, I actually skipped September too. Guess I need to work on that for 2011, lol.
Technical writing class (for work)
Photoshop and Illustrator Tutorials (for work) - I finally learned how to make animated GIF files! I'm hoping that means I'll be able to make my own blinkies soon!
Use up more of what I already have
Buy only what I actually need for crafting - I was doing really well not buying any stamps (I even skipped the Amuse anniversary sale) but I caved and went in on a Bella order with Shaela. And obviously I got the one stamp set to make my tags as well. Could of been worse I suppose, lol.
Everyone have a fabulous Monday! It's back to work for me! And Hawaii 5-0 tonight!
