Scary Alarm Clocks and other adventures...

Do you ever have one of those days when you are so tired and sleepy that the alarm clock actually scares you when it rings? I was seriously startled when it rung, despite the fact that I hear it each and every morning. Last night, I stayed up late at library again and then I decided to watch Lipstick Jungle when I got home. Bad Idea! The only good thing that happened out of my exhaustion was that I tried a new drink at Starbucks. A Skinny Vanilla Latte, it was yummy!!!

Also I got my test back (the Political Theory one I talked about) and I got an A! I really want to get straight As again, especially because this is my last semester before I apply to Law School! Crazy, right???

So in celebration, I am going to show you one of my favorite cards:


Isn’t it lovely??? It is uses a stamp from Jo-anns that they still carry but I got during their After-Thanksgiving Sale. I colored it in with Copics (have I mentioned my love of copics? I love LOVE love copics!!!!! LOL) and used some ribbon from Wal-Mart. I really do like the Offray ribbon from there. Call me cheap, but I never really feel the difference between Offray and high-end ribbon. Well, I’m off to Political Theory discussion, then African Politics, then the gym, then oodles more hours at the library. Who ever said college was a breeze?????

I also wanted to answer a few questions I've been recieving (keep them coming!).

"What are Twinkling H2Os? I can't find them on Frugalities.com and I am so interested in what they are. They sound like something I would like!!"

Twinkling H20's are basically water color cakes which sparkle. They are water based and so much fun to use. They are also acid free! When I recieve my new packs (24 colors! Yum!) I will put some tutorials up! Unfortuantly, Frugalities sold out of them! But, they can be found here. Although without the discount :(

"I have a few markers that work well like this also~ love that!!! I am not yet good at blending!!
Maybe you have some suggestions on best paper/inks??? "

I highly suggest Adirondack Ink and Georgia Pacific Paper. If you look at my older posts you will see entire posts about them :)

I also wanted to encourage you to sign up for my blog from google reader as I just added a button under my picture which will instantly add it!

Enjoy!
