LWID, updates and a little vacay...

Ok, time for some housekeeping. My book club buddy at Dear Reader was the only person to submit for LOOK WHAT I DID and I have yet to give her proper credit and recognition. She has an ESTY shop here. At our last book club meeting, she shared with us her latest creations and her new pencils she had printed to advertise her shop. What a great idea! Swing by her blog and check out her shop. If she wants the scrapbook and paper pack, I can drive it over this week. I'll have to ask her. Otherwise, it will go into the next blog candy pile.  Thanks for submitting. I am not sure I will keep trying to get LWID off the ground, still mulling the option.

Also, I made one card that I did not end up submitting for the Gallery Idol Open Call.  I like it, but I did not feel it was strong enough to contend with all the other fantastic submissions. I hoarded the thanks stickers for years, so I am glad to have finally used them.

My staff assistant went to the local paper supply store and brought back sample books for me. Yippee! All the different papers and just the right size for card making. This is how I contribute to the reduce, reuse, upcycle, repurpose, freecycle movement. What fun! I just need to find the time to play.

Finally, I have the family in town starting this afternoon so I will be taking a few days off from Asleep in the Couch. Of course, if some thing great comes up, like I am selected for the next round of Gallery Idol, I will probably have to post. If you put it out there, the universe is supposed to send it back. Can't hurt to try believing it will happen. Funny thing is I would have to abandon my family to create my next round submission. I know. Cross that bridge when it comes. Worry about that when it happens. What if there were not what ifs? 
Alright, everybody have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question. 

Happy Day!
