Time Lost seems like I have lost some hours, days and weeks recently.  Things have been hopping in the Collins house!  A whirlwind trip to Tucson and a visit from Ashley and Preston.  In addition to working on graduation announcements...for Preston, Ashley, Jenaye, Justin, and my nephew Tanner.  YIKES.  Wedding invites need to be completed and in the mail by the middle of June.  Between announcements, ceremonies {graduation and wedding} I have a feeling it is going to get even busier.

I ran up to ETC tonite, and some of my favorite people were there...Debbie, Linda, Angie and Louise.  In desperate need of a 1" circle die cut, Angie came to my rescue.  The smallest circle die I found was 1-1/4".  But look what Angie found for me. 

How lucky can a gal be?  After cutting 75 of these I was off to fight the crowd at WalMart to buy candy for my DO ME A FAVOR workshop tomorrow nite.  I was able to get what I needed and scurry home to start kitting.  Now that I have that completed, I thought I would post the pics of the favors we will be making tomorrow nite.

The first project is a little open cardstock box, perfect for little treats.  It would hold some cash or a gift card  for that special graduate.  The second is an over sized matchbook that has some cute custom printwork and is perfect for that amaZing someone in your life.  The third project was hard to photograph.  It is a cardstock structure with mini Hershey bars that would make an adorable wedding favor.  The last favor is one of my favorite little plastic jars adorned with washi tape.  Love this little teal combo!  :)

I had a few of you contact me today and yes...there are still 3 slots open if you want to join me!  ETC opens at 10:00 and you can jingle them at 480.854.2303.  Would love to see you there! 

As I left ETC tonite and thought about returning tomorrow nite, it dawned on me how lucky I was to find that place 11 or so years ago.  I have met lots of people there, made lots of friends and all while fulfilling my creative passion.  It doesn't get much better than that.  :)

Make it a great lucky week,
