hello, hotness.

it was really hot today.
which made me really irritated today.
even at target. well this slow woman was irritating me there.

but anyhow.

- studio calico's DT gallery is up. which means i can finally share these pages -







- speaking of studio calico, the add-on kit also went up. it included these adorable crochet flowers that cindy made. which i ended up hoarding, and not using. but that's another story.

- some other scrapping -

this is what the title refers to. this also happens to be for the dare


and i finally got my own HMITM challenge done. check it out. you can win a cool set of stamps from pink sugar pop.



- have you seen this sneak peek of the new american crafts stuff? i just about hyperventilated when i saw that paper. good, good stuff.

- launchcast rocks. i love how i can create my own station.

- and finally....

i was invited to contribute to this book late last year. i was really excited about it - i absolutely LOVED the concept. i mean, sarcastic greeting card sentiments? totally loving it. the sentiments were absolutely hilarious and i enjoyed working with them. i had them show up on my doorstep the other day, and i'm gonna give one away. so just comment on this post and i'll pick a name in the next few days.

(ETA: the book is by north light books, and amazon says it'll start shipping on july 6. i'm not sure where exactly it'll be available, but i'm thinking paper stores. and borders/barnes and noble usually carries north light)

have a good one :)

Whoa, LO overload!

By the way, I dislike (and by dislike, i mean HATE) that picture you used of me. It is hideous!! I look fat in it. Like a fat.. and hideous monster. Now the whole world will see.

[goes cry]
