Oh Dear!

1 am:
Ended up buying the K&Co K-Ology papers as they reminded me so much of Indian prints. Shouldn't have as I'm in the process of cutting down my stash but I've this weakness for pretty papers. As a little girl, I had already exhibited fondness of any lovely papers and used to collect sheets of them! I used to hang out at this paper shop in Singapore and bought any paper with textures. Sigh, especially knowing I will have 2 pizza boxes of kits coming from the US with even more papers....

Spent the entire afternoon yesterday listing my stuff on Ebay (at the expense of scrapping!) Anyway, so far I've a few people watching some items. Have to say that opening the sales worldwide have generated more interest. I don't really mind sending stuff overseas as long as postage is covered by the buyer. Afterall, I'm always buying from the US!!! Hopefully come Sunday most of the 1st batch will be gone! My next mission is to sort out some of the patterned papers in my accordian file, those that I have already used and there's loads of leftovers!!! Might just pack them into a kit for quick sale!

Looking forward to the all day crop on Sunday. Hopefully will be able to catch up on my A-Z album as well as doing some DT assignments. Have been asked to be a Guest DT on a forum (won't mention it yet) and hoping I will do justice to the papers given. Not my kind of colours but hey, nothing like a good challenge! Over at The Scrapper's Loft, been assigned to write on the retro look as the theme is based on Retro/Vintage/Chic look! Not having any 60s/70s photos with me, will try to adapt the look to modern photos. Looking forward to that!!!

As luck would have it, postie knocked on the door to let me know of a parcel at Back Porch Memories kit. What I was more interested was my new tool known as the Crop-a-Dile, basically an eyelet setter with a big difference! It can set eyelets/snaps with relative ease, just a squeeze of the handle and on any material. I tried it with a LO this afternoon and couldn't believe how silent it set the eyelet and how little force it took! I'm totally in love with this baby! Tried it on a chipboard and it punched a hole easily and set the eyelet even easier!!!! This has to be one of the best tool ever! The only setback is that it doesn't allow one to set an eyelet in the middle of a LO but hey, I was more interested that it could do any materials with ease! I will still keep my Provocraft silent setter for that purpose!

Oliver called his nan this morning to ask her if she could have him and Zac overnite. She agreed and I took them round to her place at 6pm. Left childless for the nite, hubby and I checked out the Indian restaurant near our place. It has won awards for its cuisine and we were not disappointed! Food was absolutely delicious if not pricey but how often do we eat out sans kids?!! They do takeaway too so will be keeping their menu in my drawer!

2 LOs came for me for the Scraplift challenge at Scrapitude. Completed one and will do the other tomorrow at a crop. Woo Hoo, whole day out scrapping with my heart's content without the kids! What ecstasy! Better get packing then.....
