*Look At My Mail!!*

Today was a great mail day!

I was beginning to panic that my Ribbon Share hadn't shown up since AmyR posted that she got hers several days ago. This is a swap of sorts that Jody over at Confessions of a Ribbon Addict puts together. For a price, you can get in on 10 yards of each of 30 different colours of grosgrain ribbon. She takes the time to ensure that the colours she chooses come very close to matching Stampin' Up colours. The ribbon is a little thinner in width than the SU ribbon, but just wonderful! I will be spending some time in front of the tv wrapping these beauties on some ribbon cards (by Cropper Hopper). I had a call from Scrapbookers Paradise last night that my 3X3 embellishment drawers are in, so I will go pick those up tomorrow and put my ribbon in there!

Also in the photo you will see a couple of Stamping Bella stamps. They seem to be all the rage these days. I had to have the one with the martini glass for a specific friend of mine with a birthday coming up. And the other was just too cute to pass up! Cindy ordered them for me and we shared the shipping... then she popped them into the mail to me.

Yup, a good mail day!

And tonight will be amazing.... we're off to see The Barenaked Ladies in concert!!! I've never seen them in concert before... and the boyz have never been to a concert before. I had the opportunity to see BNL in concert back when they were relative unknowns. I was working at the Student Council office at the University of Toronto at the time... and it was a concert they were putting on on campus. I could have gone for free, but said something along the lines of "who would go see a band with a name like that??!!". Sigh... if only I had known then what I know now! I love the 'Ladies!!!

HAVE FUN at the concert!!!
We did the same thing with Bon Jovi.....back in 1987, we were given some free tickets (while living in Oakville, Ontario) and we didn't have a clue at the time - passed them on to the teenage boy next door - he thought he's died and gone to heaven!!!
LOVE all the ribbon.......

I have seen BNL tons of times (ever since they came out with "Lovers in a Dangerous Time"). When we were in the States we saw them three times...it was always a big Canadian love-in for all those that lived in the Bay Area (CA). Have fun!
