Home Grown Away from Home Brainstorming

Well, are ya'll tired of me yet--posting three days in a row!? Just thought I'd go ahead and get it in now, while I've got all these ideas running through my head. I didn't feel like staying home today so we did a lot of running around, taking care of errands and such. So in the midst of driving, waiting in lines, keeping the girls corralled, and browsing a few stores, I thought up a lot of new crafting ideas that I'll be trying out soon. I'm in the process of getting them all on paper...well in the computer. I have this Microsoft program called OneNote that I LOVE. It's like a tabbed notebook that you keep on the computer and you can organize it any way you'd like. So I've got tabs for new ideas for all my design teams and just general fun things I'd like to make or do. I've even got a recipe tab in there and one for our Disney trip. I'm brainstorming and just writing all my ideas down (typing them all up) in that. Less paper to keep up with. Do ya'll have this program? How do you like it?

Anyway, obviously I got no crafting done earlier today, and now that it's 7:30 and I have all these ideas, I want to just get in there and stamp my eyeballs out! I even have to still come up with 2 cards just tonight for SFYTT and for the One-Click Challenge for MFT over on SCS (don't forget to check that out tomorrow morning HERE.) EEk! So I'm keeping this on the short side tonight. Looking back, I have been writing books here lately, so what say I cut ya'll a break?

On to the card at hand that I made the other day just for fun--Another bright one using my Spring Sprouts set from My Favorite Things. I forgot how much I loved that set and how easy it was to play with and color. I saw someone (can't remember now who it was--too much brainstorming, I guess) use buttons for the centers and just loved that idea and had to give it a try. Speaking of giving something a try, come back tomorrow for Jen's Sketch for You to Try--it's going to be "Verve-alicious"! With tomorrow's post, that means I will have blogged four days in a row! Ya'll calm down, now and don't get your panties in a wad over it! Just go eat a cookie in celebration for me. See ya'll tomorrow...

SUSIE Q-TIP: When coloring your project with any markers or pencils (or whatever you're using), don't put them away until you're completely finished coloring. This way, if you need to grab it again, there won't be any confusion as to what color you were using. Don't ask me how I know this. I don't want to talk about it.

Paper: Chocolate Chip (SU!), Aqua Mist, Rasberry Fizz, White (PTI), Carolyn Gavin (K & Co.)
Ink: Palette Noir (Superior), Chocolate Chip (SU!)
