Hello all. Not much new in the world of Swell. I did accomplish some much needed errands today (oil change and car wash, two necessary evils). I also went to Joann’s where I made a few purchases:
I didn’t know Jennifer’s book was sold there and when I saw it, I had to take advantage of my 40% off coupon. I can’t believe I actually had on me (so many times I forget them at home or they expire before I can use them!). Back to the book, I like a lot of the techniques and step by steps and I’m sure I will find a lot of inspiration! I also picked up the BH&G “Do it Yourself” mag. There are so many amazing ideas in there! I love BH&G special publications. They always have the best projects and prettiest photos! While I was there, I tried to see if there were any Halloween pubs out yet, but I’m thinking they will be out in the next few weeks or so. The Halloween stuff is already in stores and it’s making me really excited. I have been wanting to get a head start on my crafting and I’m debating on opening a little Halloween Etsy shop since it is my favorite holiday and I think where I do my best crafting. Anyway, I’ll have to get on it if that happens. I did start on some Halloween button rings. See? Not quite done. I’m going to seek out some buttons on Etsy as well. I had a hard time finding unique Halloween-colored ones for my rings.
I also went today to see Funny People. I love Judd Apatow films. They are funny (and incredibly crude), but also have a realness to them that pull at your heartstrings. For me, it’s a nice balance I totally recommend it.
Well, going to settle in for the night…read a bit in my “Saved by the Bell” People magazine, and focus on the day ahead!
Until next time Swellions!
