Busy Bee

This morning I was at the park to meet my friends at 7:15 and we hit the trails.  


It was such a nice morning for a 2 hour hike.

On the way home I stopped at the 99 and bought some groceries. Check.

I then came home and finished these Alpaca rocks:


I have this whole box full of rocks now!


Then I got busy making a few regular cards, just because I enjoyed it!

I then cleaned up my most favorite space on earth.


Well I tried to organize it and clean off the mat anyway.  

Oh let me tell you about that most awesome mat!  

Everyone in mixed media uses them cause its really messy!  But they are wicked expensive.  Well since May when I started doing this, I was taping down wax paper from the 99 and using that.  Well!!!  Last time I was at Wallmart I noticed this huge piece of plastic that is for under the sink.  $10.00!  

Not only did it give me the piece I am using, but that is just a half of the one I bought!  I have another piece. It will last me forever!  So happy with that discovery.

Update on AC drama.  The second est. came in at $5600, so we are going in the right direction.  I should be getting the 3rd one this week, but there are two more companies I want to call.  

Everything, I mean everything is more expensive in So Cal!  It never ceases to amaze me how gouged I get for every.little.thing.

I suppose I should go try to do something other then make a mess in the craft space!  But its so theraputic its not even funny!  I can do it for hours.  How did I do it without that release?

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

  1. That quote is better, but still high (at least to me) if all you’re getting is an AC unit.

    LOVE the alpaca rocks! I would buy one and I’m not all that wild about alpacas. LOL.

    I know what you mean about crafting. It is a NEED for me to have time to work on my cards and other projects. It’s what keeps me sane and it’s way cheaper than therapy (at least that’s the reason I give my family for spending so much time in my craft room). LOL. Now if I could just get my space cleaned up like yours I might be able to work easier and find things.

    • Oh ypur a crafter?!?! So nice to know that!!! Isnt it a wonderfully healing passtime? Last night I had insomnia so I threw some paper and elements on a page, I looked at it today and kaughed! What an awesome mess! Tonight I will throw some paint on it, if it.

      Its gonna be triple digits this week! Help!

  2. I love your crafts Debtgirl …I hope to still work on what I can do..have lots of rocks here near the lakes and found some water base decal paper and experimented with words and images ( printed from printer) and it turned out pretty good! Also came across a blender pen that transfers images printed from a laser jet and gives a cool vintage look …Lots for me to work on….

    • Hi Kiki! I love that you do crafts too! I used some napkins but mostly stickers and modge podge for the rocks. The text is printed out from printer too.

      I have so much to learn! Keeps me busy and I am not bored yet! 🙂

  3. OK after I read about all your crafting the cat and I had to take a nap. The rocks and cards are cute and should sell. Remember the mantra. Head and finger held high!

    Best wishes from Best Bun.
