Time for some Travel Snacks!
Okay- the time has come! You have listened to me ramble on and on about my trip. I had a productive evening yesterday (got my bookcase packed up) and this morning I got my Kindergarten classroom moved down to my new 1st grade classroom. I did some shopping today and got some happy mail. I also scored some great deals in Target's clearance section and with their "college" section. At Target in Indiana this week I found a great rug for my kitchen and it has turquoise in it which is one of my all time fave colors so I have decided to go with that color for my kitchen- well, Target's college line has turq./teal as one of the colors. Let's see- I didn't end up buying anything at JoAnn's but I did got to Michael's where I got some really fun ribbon (which I'm not sharing - at least not right now).
Here's the deal: Right now I have two sets of Travel Snacks. They are both a bit different- one is scrapbooking oriented (but can be used on cards) and the other is stamping oriented. They both include a candy bar from Romania. I will post pictures but here's the deal. For every 10 comments something extra goes into each pile. Remember I am moving and have a lot of unopened stuff just lying around here. I just keep thinking- surely someone can use it. Today is Friday so I will leave this open until Wednesday, July 11 at 10:00 pm. So, share this on your blogs, with your friends, etc., because the more people comment the more stuff there will be. So, here's what I want you to comment on- I have seen on several blogs lately where they want to hear fave movie lines- mine will be a twist on that. What do you like when you are creating? Absolute quiet, the tv going (with what show/movie), music blaring (what music)? To be eligible you MUST answer this question. Consider it an informal poll and I'll post the results next week too. The other thing is that I must have a way to contact you- if you don't have a blog where I could post a comment- leave your splitcoast name. If you are a subscriber you won't have to do this because you will get the update automatically. So, if you don't leave a way to contact you please make sure you bookmark and check back (which is how I do it- then I move those blogs to another folder and check them periodically). I will post a pic of the two travel snacks tonight (just as they start out- the extras will be a surprise). Have a great day!
ETA: These pictures took forever to attach. The first is the scrapbook "stuff", the second is the card "stuff", and the third is a surprise bag. All those who have subscribe (or do subscribe) will get a chance for this bag filled with all kinds of fun goodies!.
On the scrapbook candy we have 8 1/2 x 11 paper, an 8 x 8 scrapbook, some stickers that I bought two of, 2 Hobby Lobby idea magazines, some travel die cuts, favor boxes, and the Romanian candy.
On the card candy we have baby wipes (for the baby wipe technique), a pack of 8 coasters (to alter using the SCS tutorials), the favor boxes, a small silver ink pad, the badge holders (for the recent tutorial on scs), some bic pens (for maing beaded pens), a small composition notebook, brads, round flat marbles, and Romanian candy.
The bag- it remains a surprise!
Remember- these are just the starting points- for every 10 comments more "stuff" goes in (I have a whole pile already ready to go!). Thanks for stopping by!
