Attennnnnnnntion! It’s Earth Day! And we have one seriously awesome planet we live on….it’s her day today! I hope you get to do something to celebrate our earth….plant something, go for a hike, or…..heck, check out my vlog! And pardon the horrible western accent. I think it turned into Oklahoma after a while, then maybe a little central Florida and over to eastern Montana. I don’t know what the heck I was thinking.
An additional moosage from me – let’s you and I make a consumption pact. Next time you want to buy something in the craft store, think about this: Will I use it THIS WEEK? If not, well guess what – you can go back later and buy it if you still want it next week! And especially if it’s on some crazy-amazing sale, do an EXTRA doubletake. Don’t let yourself think the words “I’ll never find it this cheap again.” That’s marketing getting the best of you. Buy what you’ll use. Then use it. Buy local at your small stores in your town, not the big box stores….shop monthly for just a little treat or two, and help them stay in business as well. Think of craft shopping like the French do their bread and produce – they stop every day to buy what they need – fresh – right then, from their local market. We can do the same! We can save money that way by not feeling that coupon or sale burning a hole in our pocket…we get only what we need. And stimulate the economy just a little at a time! Locally!
My lil CAS Moosage card is using some wonderful Graphic 45 paper. I thought the Public Telephone paper was pretty amusing juxtaposed with the moosage! And our guys have called out cards made with this stamp by name in emails – apparently it’s pretty funny to them, so I make some on occasion for them! I’ve had the stamp for eons….hope it lasts, but it’s one of those that’s started to get a little brittle! But I did a search for it, and guess what – they still sell the stamp at Repeat Impressions!
And while we’re on mooses…meese?….I borrowed the sentiment off this stamp for another card using today’s sketch on S&S:
