Hideee Ho all my crafty friends!! Happy WOYWW!! Wow...#380!!! I haven't been along for the whole 380 ride, but have enjoyed the ride since I have!!

Come over and join us, its free and fun!
This week, I do have many things on my desk that I am working on for various swaps and challenges! Some are actually through, I stunned myself, but none I can really share right now because I am a creature of habit and like a certain order of things and how to do it! YES, OCD would be the disease that I have, but there you have it! All revealed in good time!
One of the challenges that I HAVE NOT started on which is lying in wait is my Pick A Stick Journal Challenge for September! I have my prompts, my journal and...........nope....NO ideas yet! LOLOL As full proof, take a gander at the photo below!!!! LOLOL
LOLOLOL, How do you like them apples????? White pages are daunting aren't they? LOLOL I will get there, for sure, but at this particular moment, I can hear crickets! LOL Send creative vibes my way peeps! :)
Let me share another thing on my desk that I received in the mail on Monday...yipeeee! I love getting mail, don't you? As a part of the Pick A Stick Challenge over on the Facebook Group of it's same name, I won a prize due to the fact that I entered my journal and ATC! I didn't win the overall prize, but I was so stoked to win an ATC from sweet Sheri Whitfield, one of the Fab Four Moderators! :) If you want to join along each month and have your own chance to win, hop on over to the group and ask for an invite! :) Sheri sent me this CUTE, CUTE ATC based on last month's prompts in this beautiful card! Sheri's a card maker at heart, so I was super excited to get one of her cards! Thanks so much for the opportunity and the prize Sheri!: )
Well, I REALLY have to share ONE MORE THING with you on my desk today and it is a COMPLETE MESS!!!! Now, I always try to give products that I use their proper thumbs up and I like to share them on my blog so folks will give them a try too and maybe like them as much as I do! That being said, I don't think I have EVER shared a product that I DIDN'T LIKE!!! Well, TODAY IS THE DAY, my friends!! Check out this shambles on my desk this morning!
I ABSOLUTELY LOATHE this glue gun!!!!! I implore with you (and I am sorry to anyone out there who works for this company and loves them) to NEVER buy this product! It is the worst glue gun I have ever had! I bought it after I read all these great reviews about it online, but let me tell you, that brings to mind to NOT believe everything you read! See those BIG, HUGE blobs of glue? Such a waste!! I waste more glue than I actually ever use! This is EVERY time I go to use it! Thank goodness the gun didn't cost me too much, but the $3 gun I had before that last me for YEARS was ten times better than this gun! Too bad it finally bit the dust! Their other products may be good, but don't even bother with this guy!
All that said, if anyone knows a REALLY GOOD glue gun that I can purchase that doesn't make this huge mess every time you use it, PLEASE, PLEASE share with me. I don't want to spend a whole lot, but I am willing to spend a bit more if it's good and will last me for years! Phew, glad I got that off my chest! LOLOL
Well my friends, have a MOST BLESSED Wednesday and rest of the week! Not sure if I will have any finished product to post this week, we shall see! I am looking forward to my weekend, whereby I will be having a girls weekend (which simply means me and my bestie and my daughter and her bestie) in HOTLANTA! Going to go visit my old stomping ground and maybe a show and some good foodies! Yippee for me! My daughter's bestie's mom is my bestie, so it makes it all cozy for us four to do things together, isn't that great? Hope you have great plans as well!
