WSC71: Nuts! Nuts! Nuts!


Nuts, nuts, nuts….actually nuts aren’t the problem. It’s the squirrels!!! We’ve got a few that think the inside our eaves are ‘the place to be!’ It’s making my husband crazy…driving him nuts! Don’t worry, we’ve lined up the moving truck for these squirrels and the contractor will be here in a few days. 😉

I thought this squirrel from Taylored Expressions would make a cute submission for today’s weekend sketch, created by Sharon. You can find the sketch here, and you can see 6 other samples from my ‘girl friday’ friends: Beate, Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn, Laurie and Mary Jo. I’m always inspired by these chicks.


Did you see this sweet release from Taylored Expressions yesterday? It’s more than cupcakes, friends. I love Taylor’s cuppies, but now she has a darling new set called Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates. Totally whimsy, in fact, the line is called Whimsical Wishes. $7.00 from the sale of each of these special sets will go to a mission called the Eden Projects. Thank you, Taylor for creating awareness and a call to action with stamps! You can find details about the sets, Taylor’s one year store anniversary party and prizes (going on now) on her blog.

Hope your plans for the weekend are fun or relaxing or lazy or exciting…whatever you want them to be! I’ve got a date with my hubby tomorrow night. Who knows maybe we’ll go all wild and crazy and he’ll take me out to Applebees. Have a good one!
