Lauren, are you near 46 South Park Place, Morristown, NJ 07960? That would be the closest location to you. Of course I do not know if the owner of that store can get the famous chocolate tea cakes...but at least you could get a decent cuppa joe and not have to go to Starbucks!
P.S. GO REDSKINS!!!

A little mass production goin' on. I usually like to make one-of-a-kind cards or maybe a few of the same/similar. Of course, that's what happens when I try to make cards out of every last scrap...I like the challenge of that. But once in a while a little mindless mass production is therapeutic.
My left index finger is a little sore opening up all the mini brads used on both cards :) The "O" in "JOY" is popped up on dimensionals, though the pic makes it look flush with the card.
Many of my blogger friends have posted that they are a bit frazzled with Christmas preparations and not having time to scrap. I'm behind on some things and ahead on others. And you know what? I'm not even stressin' over it. E.g. I am gonna send out Christmas photo cards again this year, but the photo has not been taken yet :) Hey, I figure as long as I send them out before the Epiphany, I'm okay, right? But I have already written and sent 7 thank you notes for Christmas gifts. I also got all the gifts that needed to be sent wrapped and mailed and all have been received as of yesterday. And the girls' teachers, teacher assistants, therapists, and bus driver & her assistant have all received there gifts and sent me thank you notes. But I have not finished buying Julia & Kathryn's gifts or their stocking stuffers. Buying for them is SO much fun, so I'm saving the best for last.
I have today and tomorrow, and then Friday morning I am meeting Tracy at Greenberry's. What a GREAT way to kick off the big holiday weekend :)
And if you are curious about today's title, "Don't get me started on 'Joy'", it is a quote from one of our favorite tv shows, "Monk." Adrian Monk (Tony Shaloub) does not like Christmas, and in this year's Christmas episode he says that at the beginning of the episode. He cracks me up! I have that playing over and over in my head today. I took the online Monk quiz and I scored "more Monkish than most". Go, ME!

I made the blue floral & stripes card first. I used discontinued MM double-sided cs, 6 mini brads, and an SU! green gem brad. Sentiment by PSX. I agonized over this card, and I'm not sure about the end result. So I took a shower and the idea to use black, white, and red popped in my head. The black & white are both Bazzill cs. Sentiment is Hero Arts. Black snaps by MM. Faux stitching using a paper piercer and a white gel pen. The red polka dot paper I found in the trash can at the scrapbook store. (I love me a good scrap!) This one seems to be too bare at the bottom. Hmmmm....any suggestions?
