Thankful For You

Sunday, September 13, 2009

What a week! I started a new job and I am really enjoying it so far. We have a great group of kids and the staff has been very welcoming. Friday, being Patriot's Day (and my birthday), was our first school assembly for the new school year. It was a bit stressful to be in front of the whole school on my first week there. Looking out at hundreds of faces, only a few of which I recognized, was a bit overwhelming. In my old school everyone knew me and what I was doing up there. I pretty much blended in, but here I'm the new kid! It went well (*sigh* of relief) and the rest of the day was stress free. Ryan and I went to dinner at an Italian restaurant. The weather was miserable, so we rented movies after dinner and went home to relax.

Saturday we took a ride to a new stamping store called One Little Spark. It's a cute store, but very tiny. A lot of what they had there you could find in your local craft store with the exception of a few things. Flower Soft being one of them. I first saw Flower Soft when I was watching Copic tutorials by Suzanne Dean. She uses her Copics beautifully and incorporated Flower Soft on one of her videos.

One Little Spark also carries Copic markers, but not sketch unfortunately. They carry the original marker that does not have the brush tip. They informed that they will soon have a refill station, which is awesome. I don't know what the cost per refill will be, but it is a great alternative to purchasing full bottles to refill.

I also picked up some Memento ink, which comes highly recommended by Copic users. This is another product I was not able to find in the craft stores near me.

These are some stamps my mom and dad gave me for my birthday. Ryan and I went to their house last night. My parents have done craft/art projects all my life. I brought my flower soft over there because I knew they would want to try it out too, and they did. We had a good time.

Birthday celebrations are over and it's time to tackle my to do list:

clean the house *check*
grocery shop
make lunches
iron clothes
walk Lady

Enjoy your Sunday!
