Impressed!

I had to take a trip over to Michael's today to see all the hoopla about the new Martha Stewart papercrafting line.

I have to say I am very impressed. Now I am not a Martha fan, but this stuff is very elegant, she did a "good thing". She thought of everything! Scrapbooks to fabric stickers to tissue paper to mini envelopes to scissors, punches and trimmers, acrylic stamps, you name it, she's got it! Even kid craft kits for just $3.99! Very reasonably priced. I bought a 24 sheet pack of her patterned paper for $10.99. That is less than 50 cents a sheet.

I've read on some message boards about people complaining about not being able to use the 40% off coupons on her stuff. You know what? If her stuff was at an LSS, you wouldn't be able to use a coupon anyway and would pay full price. It's definately well priced! Never thought I'd say this, but thumbs up to Martha!

Meanwhile at the ranch, Macy is recovering from a virus. She was febrile and complaining of a sort throat and cough for 2 days. I took her to the doctor yesterday. They swabbed her for strep, which was negative. I was kinda hoping that it was strep so we could treat it with antibiotics and knock it out fast. No such thing! Just gotta wait it out, but she is feeling much better today and went to her friends birthday party. Tomorrow should be back to normal and she can go to preschool.

Been crazy busy here! I finished up some layouts a few days ago for the May ScrapGal newsletter. Last night I finished up all of my ILove2Create projects with the May kit, which is beeswax.

ILove2Create is also having a cybercrafting weekend this weekend! It all starts at 6pm EST tomorrow night and and runs until 6pm Sunday night. We have been working on some great challenges and games for it!! There will be prizes too! Good prizes!! Gift certificates to the store!!

So, if you feel like crafting this weekend, hop on over and check it out! There is a link over to the right there! :)

I've been neglecting the blog challenges too, since I've been busy! I hope to hop back on board with them tomorrow!

I saw that about Martha's line on SB and tried to find some pics of it on the net but couldn't. Also not a Martha fan, not that I don't like her stuff, I just don't like that people that work with her said she was a witch to work for (that word may have had a different letter in the beginning of it). But I would love to see the new line. Did you buy any? Post some pics, if you did.

Love the new banner. Very cute. I still don't have one=(. One of these days I will figure out Photoshop!

Too bad Macy is sick, we are headed this weekend to Kendra's and Cole woke up with a snotty nose, hope it is allergies and not a bad cold!

Sounds like you are a busy scrappin' girl!!!

Hugs.
