Yucky Yesterday!

Yesterday was a kinda yucky day!  It all started when my Keurig died!  I fiddled with it for about 30 minutes hoping I could revive it, but no such luck!  To make matters worse, my fitbit wouldn't sync either!  Nothing major, but just enough to make the beginning of the day feel all out of kilter.  

It was POURING DOWN at about 3:00 when I should have been leaving for my last Copic class of the year.  Turned out to be a God thing that I stayed home later than usual, because around 4:00 my husband called, stranded in the rain in a truck full of groceries that had died in the middle of the street next to Publix.  We both got drenched moving everything from the truck to my car...but the tow truck came, and I real quick picked up the hubs and brought him home, then drove in the still pouring rain to Scrappies in  Palatka.  I found out later that there were tornado warnings in that direction!  It was BAD!

Thankfully, the rest of the evening was relaxing and relatively uneventful!  It is so fun to be with the girls and play with cute stamps!  We tried something different this time...we made one 4 x 6 and four 3 x 4 ATC-style cards for their Project Life pages.   We used Paper Smooches' set, Squeaky Clean, which has such adorable images and funny, punny sentiments.  Their favorite was the one that goes with the vacuum, which certainly described my day!  ;)

These little "scene" cards were lots of fun to design, especially with these bright, happy colors!  The bold blues we used were a little bit of a challenge  to blend since the lightest marker works more like a bleach pen, but everyone loved the results and had a good time.

Having just had our great room tiled, and still shopping for ideas for our bathroom remodel, I couldn't help but add little details like window sills, tiled floors, and multi-colored "carpet/etc" to these!  Makes me giggle!  And now, I *so* need to get out my own feather duster...the tile guys had to undercut our baseboards, so there is dust everywhere!

I started this morning with a cup of coffee made with our "hurricane emergency" French press!  I am happy to say, it has been a very pleasant morning so far!  We are planning to shop for a new coffee maker and hopefully also pick up the truck from the shop before the day is over!

I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!
