It’s a beautiful Sunday. I nearly succumbed to the temptation to have my breakfast out on the patio, but I decided it’s still a tiny bit too cold for that. Instead I sat in my favorite living room chair, as always, and I opened the window next to it. Best of both worlds, I think.
So that has been the “pleasure” part of my day, and of my post. The “business” part of my day is going to involve income tax. Shoot me now. The worst part of the whole experience, I think, is in doing the calculations for my home office – I’ll be in much better shape next year, since I’ve started keeping a budget and I will know exactly how much I’ve spent on home maintenance, but this year it’s still a matter of digging up all of the bills and doing the calculations by hand. It’s all just too boring for words. Which is why I’m going to stop talking about it now!
I’d much rather think about sitting on the back patio with a glass of lemonade, leisurely flipping through a creative magazine. This brings me to my next piece of business: just because I am a last-minute tax-doer doesn’t mean the rest of you are. Those of you who have already sent in your forms are free to spend a lovely afternoon getting your crafty groove on, and to that end, I’d like to introduce you to the Polka Dot Creations magazine blowout event.
Eighty-one issues of the popular Stampington & Company magazines (Belle Armoire, Belle Armoire Jewelry, Art Doll Quarterly, Altered Couture, Artful Blogging and more) are up for grabs for less than I paid for them. I don’t normally have sales this drastic, but when you combine a need for space with a need for cash, well, crazy things can happen. You should definitely take advantage of this before I change my mind!
Also of note: I still have a couple of the Out of Print issues of PolymerCAFE and Art Doll Quarterly available. I’ve added them to the website in the Out of Print section. They won’t last long, so if you’re interested, now is the time to go for it!
And lastly, I should mention that the new Confident Color DVD is in stock! Or, let me rephrase that: It was in stock for about 12 hours before it sold out, but I’ll have more by Thursday. I watched it while packing up the preorders, and it’s full of interesting ways to use stripey skinner blends – if you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ll know I enjoy a good stripey skinner blend…
