Graduation Gift

We have been invited to my boss' son graduation party, next month. I've been trying to think of what do you buy an 18 year old boy . . . that he'd give a patootie about?

This is the best I could come up with . . . and it was all for ~ $10! I got the frame at Hobby Lobby for $15.99 (+ 1/2 off) and I got the die cut from Archiver's for $1.99! I ran the die cut through my Xyron adhesive/sticker machine and WAHOO a gift!! Not bad, for a $10 gift, huh? It's heavier than hell though . . . the glass is about 1/2" thick! Guess he could use it as a weapon, in college?! :o)

Terry and his siblings had gone through the basement and were taking an old table to the curb. I asked if I could use it, in my craft room? I was needing one more table, that could fit four/table. Problem? No chairs! So . . . I went to a warehouse outlet today and bought some chairs . . . I'm going to try and convince Terry that I need 'em throughout my craft room! :o) They're pretty darn comfortable!

If you scroll all the way to the bottom, I've included a music playlist. It doesn't automatically come on . . . so please feel free to listen to some of my favorite music. I'll be happy to take requests, to add to it, too! :o) Guess you can tell my age . . . there's an awful lot of 80's music! Funny how music is our acoustic scrapbook . . . it can put you back in time and bring a smile on your face, when reminiscing of the past.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!
