Sunday, Sunday

Once again, we have August weather in June. I'm not lovin' life when I go outside and my clothes stick to me. Hopefully it will be like recent years, and this sticky, hot yuck will dissipate and we'll have a chance of surviving July & August. Past years at the markets have been murderous in the late summer. Let us pray.

Normally I wouldn't venture out on a Sunday at all, but a friend of mine had her first Farmers market in a town North of here, so I went to check it out. It's nice! They have several farmers, crafters, live music ... and I think I spotted a BBQ sauce booth. I got there late today (I had someone over, checking out my Cuttlebug ... I think it's SOLD! Yay!), so I got out of here late, and they're only open until 1:00.

But check this out:

At first I thought it was a real power outlet in the ground. Seriously. I must have been delirious with the heat. Yeah, that's it. C'mon - a power outlet in the middle of a field?! No, it is NOT real, but it sure fooled me! Have I mentioned it was hot out today?

I'll get there earlier next time and do a better walk-about. ;-)

After I got home and cooled off, I finished the last of my staged projects from this past week:

And for the visually-impaired among you, such as myself (I find I'm squinting even WITH my reading glasses today), here is that sentiment up close and personal:

Heh heh ... The bonus points to moi for this card are (1) I used new stuff before I put it away, and (2) I opened a pack of 7 Gypsies patterned paper I got 3-trips-to-Angela's ago and haven't used yet. Yay!!!

And for those young 'uns of you out there, this is a roll of film:

Yes, kids, I still have a real roll of film, and I used it here as a stand-in to color in my stamped image. The sad part is: I can't remember if this roll has been exposed yet or not. I think not. And I'm not sure where my film camera is any more. Digital has me so spoiled.

That's all for today. This week I hope to make some more progress on the Scrap Heaplet and use some of my new irreverent sentiments from River City Rubber Works. I'll be back!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Since the film is still sticking out it probably hasn't been used yet--unless it didn't wind all the way when you finished it up..I love using film and swore I would never go digital, then recieved a fancy pants digital (not a dSlR though) for my birthday a few years back and haven't used film since.
    Grats on the potential cuttlebug sale!

  2. I just used a disposable film camera this weekend, but otherwise, I have not used film at all in 2 years. You have a knack for finding irreverent stamp images!!!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
