Blackberries!

Our blackberry bush is just bustin' out with the berries this year. I can't believe it. I planted it 2 years ago from just a cutting. Last year we got maybe a handful of berries, but this year.... oh my! I pick about a cereal bowlful every day. I can't eat them that fast, so I'm freezing them. They'll be good in smoothies and stuff later in the summer. Plus, they'll be yummy to eat when frozen. How refreshing is that? Went to Debbie B's scrapbook garage sale. She and about 5 of her friends sell all their extra rubber stamps, paper, cardstock, you name it. I got some awesome stamps and lots of cardstock. After that, Pam and I went to Michael's cuz we had 40% off coupons and he hadda use them! I bought a 8x8 scrapbook to do my school pictures. I got some matching Studio K (K&Company) paper to go inside. I think it will be fine. I keep changing my mind on what colors I want, so I just chose one today and that's it. No more changing my mind. I'm scrapping my K-12 pictures and stuff. My Mom saved all that stuff in a little pocket album thingy but I wanted something else. Finished up a few projects around here that needed to be done before the floors get done tomorrow. Tuesday the handyman comes back to finish the shower. After that, we just have to paint the doors and the mouldings and WE ARE DONE and ready to list. I can't believe how much work this is. I don't think I want to do it ever again. Today I found the missing jj card I made for June submissions. Oh well, I guess I can submit it for next time. I am so excited about something along the jj line, but I can't tell you right now. It's very cool and I am just so tickled about it. I'll tell in due time...
