My new coffee maker & my gardenbella.

Packed up the kids this afternoon went to get a new coffee maker (and gum-boots for the kids -- we're livin' in a mud pit here!). Mine was dying a slow death until yesterday when it wouldn't do A THING. *{GASP}* I know. So my daughter & I went online looking at which one to get (she's only 10, but loves ANYTHING to do with computers... apparently even checking on coffee makers! LOL) and resorted to my favorite brand.... Kitchen Aide. Ahhhh. Love Kitchen Aide. The last house we built I put in all K.A. appliances and LOVED them.... this time, I tried something else (because I went with a full size fridge and a full size upright freezer side-by-side) and wanted everything matchy-machty. Not so pleased. NEXT house (I hope to pray it's the LAST ONE!!!) I'll switch back to K.A> -- especially for the dishwasher!! I hate having to *rinse* plates (which is what I have to do now) as I find it completely pointless... add soap & your done. :) LOL.

I joined the Copic Club over at Paper Pretties -- yeahhhhhhh... so excited & Christie is awesome. Check it out if you're interested. She has US prices, but she's ACTUALLY in Saskatchewan (so no worries about the border, customs, duty & hold ups if you're like me and in Canada - bonus!) BEFORE those babies arrive though, I thought I'd pull out my 'ol faithfuls -- stampin' write markers from Stampin' Up!. I do love how these match beautifully and I had fun coloring up my garden bella. Just had fun stampin' & coloring the other night. Sometimes I just like to be quick & grab a 2-step stamping set, and sometimes I like to watch the TV, and color :)


I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
