In my next life, I'd like to be a better gardener....

I submitted my review. Unfortunately, I cannot link you to it because it is not posted at their website. Imagine that!! There are, however, over 1000 (yes, one thousand) other reviews for this product. Is it just me, or is this a waste of internet space?? You gotta laugh.
Here's the tease for next time.... What do these
have in common? Stay tuned.....

Here is my personal favorite, Happy "Farther's" Day!
This proves that it is never a good idea to argue with the person with the icing. If they think a name goes on there, and you insist they write "Father's Day Only"... well, that's what they will do!!
Why am I suddenly craving chocolate???

Should I be worried that none of these animals seem afraid of me? Are the animals getting ready to take over the world? They don't run away, no matter how close I get. (Or maybe it's my "animal aura", eh, Jan??)

And a book from cabinet cards (notice the cabinet card on the spine too)....

It was well over ten years ago that I secretly sent things to Bonnie after being assigned to her. After all these years, she still raves about the goodies she received. A couple of years ago, she performed a random act of kindness and sent me a little handmade book, out of the blue, for no reason. As luck would have it, it arrived around my birthday, so it was a surprise to both of us!
Those are some of the penguin candies in the snow around the letters (and my plastic and cardboard lettering tool)...
Meanwhile, I'll be entertaining myself...
Give me a P...
Give me an A...
Give me a T...
What does that spell?

I get the feeling someone in the marketing department is writing these fortunes! They obviously want me to buy more cookies. And this "serving suggestion" was actually on the box of fortune cookies! I guess there aren't really a lot of different ways to serve fortune cookies, so drizzling them with chocolate is fine with me!
Deja vu! This little project is going to get really boring really fast if they repeat the fortunes. I mean, there are only 12 cookies in the box. They should not have to repeat that soon! At first, I was going to throw away the duplicate, but then I decided that I love a good challenge, so I would make two cards with the same fortune. (And I don't think they know me well enough to make such insinuations about my past either!!)

This was a book I made after watching the Traci Bautista DVD. More of this book can be seen here.

(Is it just me, or do other people wonder if the local hospitals have Mike's picture up in the Security Department???)
They also had some of their regular products at a discount. I needed another two ATC boxes. After all, I'm going to be making 500 Fortune cards, you know. (I crack myself up sometimes)
I also got a couple of the white magnifying glasses. Seemed like they would work well in a book. Later that day, I also picked up a little brass magnifying glass. (I can use those to find the teeny zip lock bags).
After our shopping, we had fun visiting with friends. Ginny and husband John were there from the Cleveland area. It was great seeing them. She carries a lot of Mike's products in her Small Studios online store, plus other very interesting and cool things. We joked that we would both be blogging about this trip! Mike has fascinating things in his warehouse. One is a very large, old perforating machine. I took a picture of it, but I like Ginny's picture better, which is on her blog here.
Yes, Gaye brought Mike a gift, the Answer Me Jesus. It is like those old Eight Ball toys, where you ask a yes/no question, turn it over, and the answer is on a floating thing in a little window. It provided some wonderful entertainment.
