I waited excitedly all day today for UPS to deliver my new kit. It never came. I checked the tracking info and it said it was delivered and given directly to a man at our house. This did not happen. When I called UPS they said it must have been given to a neighbor and I should check with my neighbors and if they did not get it then I could contact Studio Calico and they could contact UPS and then they would start an investigation. I live in a townhouse development so asking my neighbors would be an ordeal. I have a lot of close neighbors and I have no idea which one would have gotten it. I asked them if they could just ask the delivery person where they delivered it and he said no, they can only do that if they start a formal investigation. AARGH.
I know it's only scrap supplies, but still I was disappointed because I really wanted to use my kit at my monthly crop today!
The good news is the story has a happy ending. About 9:15 p.m. a kind stranger delivered the package to our door. They had delivered the package to him on a completely different street! Needless to say I thanked him profusely, and proceeded to lay out my kit to ooh and aah over it...
I had wanted a second add-on but didn't have the money for it. I did, however, have a credit (from the garage sale) over at my LSS; so I went over there and put together my own add-on! Totally fun! So, here's a pic of how my new kit looks with my custom add-on incorporated into it...
I know at first glance it doesn't look much different, but if you look closely, there are six new pieces of patterned paper, four new sets of embellies, and a piece of cherry veneer. I also added some more cardstock in bright colors and a couple different kinds of ribbon - both from my own stash.
So, now I am off to get ready for my crop! I am so excited! I am going to work on my Project 12 sketch layout, and also make some cards!
I wish you a super-duper Saturday, filled with inspiration and creativity! Thanks for stopping by!
