Good Morning (Sun)day!!

Happy Sunday!!

The sun is finally out---after 4 days of dreariness and rain, Mr. Sun is out!!! 

What a week! I hope you all had a better week than me...or is I??

I was very emotional this week, had problems with Canada Post and customs, and just generally felt like crap!

I FINALLY received my order from Crop Chocolate yesterday. I had to go to the Post Office to pick because, surprise!surprise! I had to pay customs and duties. On an order that cost just a tad over $100, I had to pay a charge over $40. I don't think it's right, and it's very annoying!!

BUT! The box was so worth it. This box contained all my warehouse grab bags  and paper grab bags---All I can say it that I was in heaven!!!! :)

I should have taken pictures, but, alas, I'm one of those types that has to put everything away...I love to organize!!

Here's what I received:

WRMK pliers
MM pliers
Fancy Pants brads---lots!
Fancy Pants ribbon---lots!
WRMK Sew Easy heads---lots (I have the whole collection, I think, just not the handle! :S)
Authetique die cuts
Sizzix embossing folder--love set
Lots and lots of paper
Diecut shapes (Fancy Pants, I think!)
stickers from MM
Imaginisce snag em stamps  (these are all doubles, but that's great as DD has discovered stamping, and wants Mom's stamps--these are a good alternative!)

Among those lovely things, which I'm sure I have forgotten some things, I received EP country Drive collection, my regular hot chocolate (little random goody bags--awesome value!!), BG brads, pearls.

Great order!! Love my chocolate sweets!

It was a pretty good day, in all. I had went to Walmart with hubby and MIL (whom is awesome!) and one son---DD stayed with my other SIL and her kids (first time for that--Mom was freaking out!lol) and the other son stayed home (video games--yeesh!lol)

So, DH went to the blood donor clinic to give platelets, and while that was occurring, we went to Walmart. I found a Cuttlebug Embossing folder set for 3$!! And some glitter glue for DD, 2$, and a scrapbook album kit for 8$! Not bad, not bad at all! I wish I had more cash--but!!!! Darn customs!! lol

Anyways, I hope it's a great Sunday for you. I'm hoping to get some scrap work done. This week's challenge on CC is making an easel card---never did this. I'm gonna try!

And next weekend, if I'm not mistaken is the OWH CC blog hop. So, if you haven't stopped by there, do so. Great products, great prices, great people!!! :)
