~Too much to title today! Just check it out~

Morning my amazingly crafty friends.
I had an inspiring day yesterday,
I was privileged enough to meet Cindy Conkerr and her beautiful daughter.
If you do not know about this charity or who they are, please do check them out.
Rebecca Peck introduced me to Conkerr and it has
stolen my heart. It really is a great cause.

Ok on to Crafty schtuff!
This is what I have been working on for the last few days...
and I have a story for you! LOL
So I head to Michaels thinking I would spend a couple bucks and
buy a foam wreath for the base of a project for Imaginisce/Purple Cows.
I get to the wreaths bases and hellooooooooo 7.99??? Umm
I don't think so! I have 3 kids with me, an impatient hubby and no coupon.
So I tell the boys to spread out and start hunting momma up a
cheap wreath. Just then I look over and I see a HAY wreath, neatly
wrapped in plastic wrap. OMG YES! Only 1.99 now I can handle that.
I snatch that sucker up and take it home and start working on it.
I left the wrap on because I THOUGHT it would be easier to work with.
Ok #1 did you know that wrap was not permanent? LOL
I had hay all over my chest and down my bra, what a freakin mess.
#2 Helmar 450 Quick Dry is my best friend in the whole world at
this point, becuase if I have to hold or glue one more piece of plastic and
flippin' HAY down, I might die! LOL
All in all I am pleased with it.
I used the NEW Brand new *that's right* Imaginisce To Love and Cherish
paper line....LOVES IT!
I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry (nothing else would have worked period)
Clearsnaps glitter
And my handy dandy Purple Cows Freestyle Mouse.
I hope it was worth it. I will have FULL instructions for how to
on the Purple Cows blog this week some time
(they don't tell me when they love to surprise me LOL)

Don't forget the Helmar giveaway from yesterday, you have until
Tomorrow at 12noon Central to respond.
We almost hit 100 fans from
this post and remember what I said OVER 100 I give away more glue!
