Five Miscellaneous FUN Things On Friday

1. Chevrons have been popping up everywhere - in scrapbooking, in fashion, in home decor . . . but I simply had to laugh out loud when I saw that they're also now appearing in the health and beauty aids department! Of course, seeing those happy colored chevrons every day would make brushing and rinsing so much more FUN, don't you think!

2. I enjoyed Nick Offerman's article, Make Your Own Darn Gift, which makes a case for giving handmade gifts.

3. Speaking of handmade gifts, I had FUN creating a couple of mixed media canvases as gifts for friends.

4. I haven't even begun to think about Christmas, despite the fact that it's only 89 days away. However, I noticed that Christmas arrived at Hobby Lobby over a month ago!

5. A brand new Michaels craft store opened up just 3 1/2 miles down the road from us! Robbie and I stopped in during the Grand Opening week. We dropped our names in the door prize drawing . . . and later that evening, I got a call that I had won!! Robbie drove me back to store to pick up my prize basket of mixed media goodness!

What FUN things are happening in your life?


  1. Target, Michaels, Hobby're torturing me :)

    We're heading to our local Craft Market this weekend, so that should be fun

  2. Well done on the prize.
    Although I'm happy making stuff for christmas in September.....I hate seeing it all in the's already everywhere here!

  3. Congrats on the win. Although I'm sulking as oh I wis we had those stores in the UK

  4. I am totally NOT happy to hear that Christmas is but 89 days away. I haven't given it much thought at all, though I have purchased one stamp with Christmas cards in mind.

  5. Congrats on your win - how fun! I have been preparing for Christmas already... crocheting scarves and working on t-shirt quilts for my girls (shhh, they don't know). I want to do as much hand-made this year as I can, but have learned you HAVE to start in September if you want that to really happen.

  6. How lucky are you! Hope you have FUN with your goodies :)

  7. What a fun prize - enjoy those goodies. And all those chevrons are doing funny things to my eyes.

  8. I'm disappointed now that my listerine is the boring plain sort :sniff: although I'm thinking that early morning those chevrons might be a bit much.

    Started thinking about Christmas - mostly how we can make it calm and low key this year...


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
