Time management...

...I have none. Has it really been a week since my last post? Yes, indeed it has. But I have excuses! I've been knee-deep in custom orders galore, plus Lou's sister had to go and have a college graduation party 2.5 hours away this past weekend which I {of course} had to attend. Say goodbye to 1.5 days of good ol' production time. I hate that. Don't get me wrong, I love doing things non-craft related with other human beings, but it really pushes me back seeing as my weekends are my most productive times.

Last Thursday the most exciting thing came in the mail. My promo buttons from Promos In A Snap. They're really something. The packaging alone was so lovely, I almost didn't want to take them out. I'm really impressed with the color quality too. And a bit relieved to know that the colors on my monitor aren't too terribly off {which I had been suspecting for a while now}.


Today I was telling Lou that I was willing to put myself in more debt just so we could buy a couch that doesn't suck. This couch that we have was a hand-me-down from our old roommate, and while it looks decent, I swear to you that it is the devil. The cushions you sit on slide out from under you and before you know it you're practically sitting on the back cushions. I'm ready to duct tape the cushions in place that's how abnoxious it is.
The other day I found Lou blending into the couch, which I found a bit strange. He seems to be a fan of brown. Which might be why he sticks up for the couch when I threaten to drag it out into the street so a car can run it over.


Oh! And I found a really neat tutorial on how to make bath bombs. Earlier this week I was scouring the internet for a good bath soak to soothe my achy bones {hehe}when I stumbled on this. It even has pictures, which I love in a good how-to. Now where do I get citric acid?

lovely promos! great discovery on the bath bomb link!

the evil couch...I have lived with one..here's how we got it fixed...you know that kind of squishy shelf liner people put in there kitchen cabinets? (it has little holes in it) If you get a roll of that and place it under the pillows -- this should solve your problem -- it doesn't allow for scoot-age! good luck!

He does blend into the couch! How funny. He seems to be very attached to it! Good luck parting the two of them :)

ooh I wonder! I'll try anything..perhaps a cabinet liner might be the fix! As you guys can see..it might be hard to part my boyfriend and the couch.

I just wanted to say thanks for the comment on my Watermelon yarn...and I love your blog! Also, checking out Trunkt. I'm sure it will be many moons before they would accept me, but great for future reference! Take care, Di

what do you mean what's the promo things? the "promo"tional buttons? they have my web address on it. I hand them out like I would business cards and also add them to orders.

Not sure if you are still looking for citric acid...I have bought from DIY soaps previously and they sell online: http://www.diysoap.com/category-s/128.htm
