Friday Funnyz

A fun sign I saw in a catalog:

"I can't clean because...
 I get distracted by all the COOL stuff I find."

Here is a great recipe for snacks or dessert learned from a niece many years ago--thanks to Daisy Sour Cream for the updated version--this one calls for orange juice, but the original just used sour cream and brown sugar. Pick your favorite!

Tuesday Tipz

Post Cards!

Post cards can be used for many crafting projects:
Make your own from blank paper or purchase a package of pre-made blank cards.

Purchase picture post cards of places that may be difficult to take with your camera.
Post cards are low cost souvenirs and great additions to scrapbooks.

The July/August Creating Keepsakes Magazine has a great idea
for mailing post cards to yourself throughout your vacation.
Write each day's activities on post cards purchased along the way.
When you return home, punch holes in the corner, bind with a ring or post.

Share your tipz and ideaz.

COMMAND CENTRAL--Operation Greeting Card

I have been in a cleaning and organizing mood.
Since I am 'solar powered', I will credit the
longer sunny summer days along with the
Super Full Moon for this boost of energy.

LOVE LOVE LOVE greetings Cards-
buy, make, read, send, receive, save, display!

However,my card stash was scattered
all over the house making it difficult to find
just the right one for each occasion.
I gathered all the cards in one place so
I could see what I had and what I needed.
I already had two boxes complete with dividers
especially made for card organization.
This made it easy to sort and organize the cards.
Any box will do, even a shoe box.
Extra pieces of cardboard can be cut to make dividers. 
A loyal reader and good friend is making a
beautiful card organizer album, with pockets for each month
along with a calendar on each page for special dates. 

I also printed out a list for birthdays and anniversaries.

I made room on the 'bill paying' desk for:
the cards, stamps, pens, address book and return address stamp.
Greeting Card Command Central!

Organized boxes of greeting cards.

Dividers make it easier to sort and find the perfect card.

Birthday and Anniversary List

Tools stored in desk drawer to send the perfect card!

Never underestimate the power of a greeting card!
