Sale-A-Bration

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 =-)

I wasn't sure about the rub-ons at first either but I really like them too! Yeah, when you want or need an order the most, that's when Mr. UPS comes late.

That jar is so cute! I've never been a big fan of rub ons, only because I've had tons of problems with them, but I've been hearing such good things about the SU rub ons!

My UPS driver doesn't come to my house until after 3 p.m. or so too. It's very frustrating when you're expecting something fun!

Your UPS problem cracked me up.. :-) My kids don't nap anymore but I so totally understand your troubles here!
I love rub-ons, but I wouldn't have been adventurous enough to put them on glass, it's very cool!...

Very cool! I have seen people do really cool things with those Rub-ons! They seem like they are fun!

Don't even get me started on deliveries! ;0) I've had them at dinner time, even 8:00 and the packages go to our landlords, so I feel bad disturbing them... I know what you mean, I had to try the basic grey rubons to compare. Sometimes I'm not too enthused about new SU stuff but these grew on me FAST. :0) mel
