I know I said I was going to stay off the computer...

But I'm still procrastinating. So indulge me here.

I went through my medicine cabinet, cleaned it out and packed it. I went through my makeup clutter and cleared that out. I've hosted several dozen children for playdates. And I've finished all my scrappy assignments. I realize some people do these things on a daily basis, but we are talking about me. As in, me, the lazy person. So woohoo, go me!

OK. Enough self-praise. Moving onto Friday random fun.

1. I posted about Julia Stainton's studio on the Lily Bee blog. Holy cow! It's amazing! A dream space. So organized, such beautiful light. I want to move in.

2. Jillibean Soup has a mid-season release! So stinkin' cute. I love that the Yellow Bell Pepper paper is all red. Go by the blog,  and leave a comment to win it!


3. Creating Keepsakes and Big Picture Classes have joined forces (of good!) and are hosting a National Scrapbooking Day online crop with challenges, chats, and giveaways. I'll be hanging out there all day. You can sign up by clicking here. May 7th, peoples! Be there.

4. And lastly, a card I created for Jillibean. I'm not a huge card maker, but I noticed that if I include lots of paper piecing, it's actually really fun. I even inked the edges of the clouds!

Everything Jillibean Soup, except, pink polka dot paper is Lily Bee, cloud punch is Fiskars, heart punch is Marvy, font is p22 Typewriter, ink is Clearsnaps (those Cat's Eyes things. Love those!)

Now, I'm off to work on what has to be done. Really. I am. (I haven't taken any naps this week! Are you proud?)

I love the paper-piecing! Those really are fun to do and work perfectly on cards. :)
Thanks for the heads-up on the giveaway. I'm off to check it out.

Based on this post, I'm GLAD you didn't stay off of the computer! :)

LOVE the card! Cute paper release...I'd probably want some if I was in to that sort of thing. LOL

Kudos to you for getting some clutter cleared and packed. What's worse? Packing or unpacking?
