At first I wasn't very excited about SU's Sale-A-Bration brochure, but, as always, it grew on me! One of the items I didn't particularly care for was the rub-ons. I never really liked them before and I didn't think that would change because it was Stampin' Up! I was wrong! I decided I needed to give them a try, and I am very pleased with the end result! So far I have only used them on a glass jar, but I am looking forward to using them on my scrapbooks and anything else that comes along! My first little project with the rub-ons was to make a pen holder. I just wanted to see what they were capable of. I used a marzetti (sp?) salad dressing jar that I had sitting around and placed a few of the rub-ons around it. Then I tied a bow using some Wild Wasabi ribbon I had. It is really cute! This has to be the easies thing I ever made! I'm so excited! Yay! I only got one set of these out of the Sale-A-Bration brochure, I hope I don't regret that!
On another note, why is it that my UPS man cannot get here until late afternoon? Doesn't he understand my daughter naps from 1 - 3 and if I had my deliver here before then I might actually be able to do something with it today? Why are my needs not being met? Does he not care? Apparently not! Oh well, life goes on =-) On a happy note, I got chocolate in the mail today!!! When we went to Hawaii this year I purchased a package of pens to give out as souvenirs and when I got home, none of the pens worked. I called Hilo Hattie and they said they would credit me with the amount of money I spent on the pens, but I didn't want the money, I wanted working pens!!! So they told me I could send them back and they would send replacement pens. They arrived today and the nice lady sent me a box of chocolate for my troubles!! How cool is that? They also gave me 20% off the next time I am in their store...which may be never, I don't know, but the thought is nice! Sadly though, the pens still do not work. I think I may try to find refills for them myself. They weren't very expensive, but I kind of expected them to last a couple days! I am happy though, they tried to rectify the situation and that is what is important to me! Wow, I really went off on some tangents today didn't I? Thanks for reading! (Send some delivery vibes to my UPS guy! Thanks!!)
Updated - Thanks for the delivery vibes! He came at 3:00 exactly and my daughter slept for another 45 minutes! I was able to mount 2 of my Sale-A-Bration sets and use them on a card, I'll post it later =-)
