Get a Cute Background

Need to spruce up your desktop/laptop background? You can go here for a few ideas. Here are a few that grabbed my fancy.

As a previous teacher I really love this one because it looks like a bulletin board...

but I choose this one as my current background. It's titled,

"Where are the Babies?"
Cute, huh? :)

I'm in LOVE

I'm sooo enamored with Plasterdoll but I think I've found a new love.

Or a least an additional one.

I absolutely love the designs and colors LaurenAlexander uses in her paintings!!

I'm no art critic but these painting speak to me.  

I love the use of simple shapes

and rounded lines

and the COLORS..oh, the COLORS.  

Just beautiful.  And I love them.

I'm definately purchases several of her prints in the near future.  Off to daydream.........

New Purchase

So, even though I've entered the giveaway contest over at Vanilla Joy , I've been looking online at the products included in the Ultimate Crafter's Companion.  

I saw the Enveloper on Amazon for under 14 dollars so I added it to  my cart thinking I might purchase it sometime.  

And then I clicked the "1 Click" button not thinking it would instantly send my order through. Well, Bada Bing Bada Boom.....I've got an Enveloper! (Eeek- I didn't see shipping costs -$7.89!)  

Oh well, guess I'll be making lots of cute envelopes soon!  Keep me bookmarked if you're in the market for envelopes of all sizes!
