Raise your hand if you ever owned or wore one of these....... Ok, I'll admit I did, although mine was not quite that ornate. I'm pretty sure I got mine using skeeball tickets on the Jersey shore.
It's Monday and most people....well.....struggle on Monday's. In fact, many start struggling with Monday long about 6pm on Sunday. So what color would your mood ring be today? Pretty sure I'd have the most putrid brown that stone could get. Of course I shouldn't say that because, honestly, I don't remember what the colors mean. Ok....if brown means I'm down and grumpy then that's what it would be. Remind me to find a chart to decipher the colors....
Mood rings were invented in New York in 1975 and were all the rage in the late 70's. Does anyone out there still have one? If not, guess what, you can still buy them. Anyway, they say the crystals and quartz inside the stone change structure and therefore color based on your body temperature. Do they actually work? Don't know. I guess we have to decide that.
Ah ha! here is a pretty decent color chart (although a tad fuzzy in spots):
It would appear that this post has, well, absolutely nothing to do with BigMouth Scrappers but hey....you can always use the words in the color chart for journaling inspiration? Or am I stretching it too far?
Have a great week everyone! Monday is almost over.....
Most of you have probably seen my email announcing our new designer, Gena Glover!
We are so fortunate that she has decided to spread her wings and teach at BMS - her first class is already coming up on July 7th! Welcome, Gena! I sent an email a few days ago with her class information. I'll get it put up on the website after I finish this post. If you didn't see the email, check your junk/spam folders and then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want it resent. It's an altered cigar box and it's cute with a capitol Q!.
Many of you know that after a few years of ups and downs, my daughter is expecting. I have a granddaughter coming in August! Like most of you, I couldn't bear the idea of store bought shower invitations. As important as my daughter Liz is to me, I had to do something special. So I designed an invitation:
Maybe not the greatest picture but you get the idea. Therm-o-web foiling, Tonic foil sheets, embossing, die cutting, etc. I love how it turned out, especially since it's designed to lay flat for mailing. I only hope the recipients get that you have to open it up in to a box......? I didn't think 25 invitations was a lot.....until now. With the help of my BMS family, I've been working on prepping these for a WEEK. Just today I finished all the little pieces and parts and started to construct the boxes. I have 5 blank boxes and a gazillion little pieces so far. So, my friends, how many times have you said "What was I thinking?" LOL.
Still, even though it's a lot of work it's out of love. I have just one child and one grand baby so I just want it to be nice.....and Liz is the most gracious and grateful recipient I know.
So this is my week ahead!
What are ya'll working on?
Lots of Love,
