I did a wedding cake today for a dear family friend.  It is the biggest cake I've ever done.  It was a great success and everyone loved it. 


So, I learned that Big Lots had Martha Stewart scrapbooking and craft supplies advertised for $1.00 each ~ thanks to my sister who had discovered it on someone else's blog.  I went to Big Lots and they were sold out of everything.  I took my ad to Wal-mart (three of them) and shopped.  I wish I could have found some paper packs, but apparently Wal-mart is getting rid of Martha Stewart scrapbooking supplies, so I was lucky to find what I did (in the clearance isles.)  My sister did her shopping in Wichita and Derby, I shopped in Kansas City.  We are going to do some trading, although we both found a lot of the same things.   The first picture is store number one, then store number two and then store number three.



Stamping with a Whiff of Joy and Katharina Frei has reached 1000 blog followers.  To celebrate she is "giving away 2 sets of Whiff of Joy's STORE stamp kit "Blooming Spring", illustrated by the amazing Elisabeth Bell.  These sets consist of 16 stamps each, deeply etched red rubber, already mounted on cling cushion mounting foam."  Whiff of Joy stamps are adorable!
