I got some exciting news when my sister called this afternoon to let me know that she had got tickets for the Unique Lives & Experiences Women’s Lecture Series in Toronto this spring. The date we will be attending is June 6 and the speaker is….Martha Stewart!! I’ll get to see my childhood inspiration talk about how she created an empire on good taste. I first discovered MS around the age of 11 while watching a very informative episode of her show focussing on brooms. Yes like the brooms that you sweep your floor with and yes I was a weird child. Martha Stewart Living was one of the first websites that I ever went on. Even if she does “know everything”, I am excited to hear her speak and will be looking forward to June.
Speaking of Martha Stewart, I was in Michael’s last week (same trip as the last post) and picked up some of her scrapbooking paper with my 40% off coupon. It matched the new theme I am doing in Myles’ room (yes I realize he is only 3 months old and already has a new theme happening in his room) and I thought I could make a couple of cute little pictures for his walls with it. I also picked up a pack of matching stickers to create the pictures. The paper included different woodland themed images including gnomes, foxes, owls, mushrooms, bugs, and woodgrain.
I got the frames from the dollar store so including the paper, stickers and frames these pictures came in well under $5 each. I should also note they took about 3.5 seconds to complete. “It’s a Good Thing”.
