I can think of so many uses for these fun little cards: pages in a mini book, gift tags, add it to a scrapbook page ... and the colors ... perfection!
While I'm not really a big shopper, there are a few goodies that have been turning over and over in my mind that I wouldn't mind finding under the Cristmas tree this year. I happen to think that Santa reads blogs (or would certainly have elves assigned to that task) so here are a few things for his idea list:
> Provance Sante Eau de toilette, Bergamot. It's been far too long since I found a scent that seemed just right. From the moment I spritzed on the sampler in the health and beauty isle at Whole Foods this fresh, clean, mild citrus just fit. It fit!
> Prismacolor, landscape series pencils, Do you ever get the notion that having the perfect art supplies would make you a better artist? Though it crosses my mind at times, it is not true, you know. You can be an amazing artist with a #2 pencil and a torn sheet of newsprint, but still these colors are calling to me. I've been admiring this specific set in the office supply store since 'back to school' time in August.
> American Crafts D-ring albums: Several. These will serve one of my goals for next year (2009 plans already!) which is to tackle the huge box of pictures we have sitting around from our pre-digital days. At the very least I want to simply insert the 4x6 prints into albums and add some captions/perspective. If project or story ideas come from this (and I'm sure they will) I'll make note of it and create stuff as the mood, and time, allows.
Well ... that is enough "I want" for one day.
