Movies at the Office, Day #2

Cookie success: I gave away all the cookies that I baked yesterday! I brought some to the office and left with an empty container and then the few extra that I had at home, I took them to my parents' house. This afternoon, I was camped out in one of the offices that has a large window in it. I had the door closed because I was on a conference call, but I saw the big boss walk by. He paused at the window, pointed at me and then the cookie, as if to ask me if I brought the cookies in. I finally got what he was trying to say while trying to also pay attention to the conference call and nodded my head. He then gave me a "sooo good" expression. Ha ha. Spreading cheer with cookies, yep, that's what I do.

At the office: Today's movie selection at the office was Fletch. I came into the movie about a third into it because I was on a conference call with my boss. I had no idea what was going on half the time, but at least being in the conference room with my co-workers was better than sitting in my office. I decided to move my teleworking day to tomorrow since the office is closed on Friday, my usual teleworking day. Of course, I'll be missing the last movie day at the office, but I'll enjoy working at home in my pajamas instead.

I also heard from a co-worker about some baby news, and I'm SO excited for her! :) I was so ready to blab the news to my boss so that she would be in the know, but I stopped myself as this is not my news to tell.

Shopping: Armed with some coupons, Julie and I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond and Michaels tonight. My goal at BBB was to get a scale to put in my bathroom (used my 20% off coupon!). I'm not really too happy with myself with recent bouts of overeating, and I figured a way to get my weight situation under control is to hold myself accountable with the numbers on the scale because it's an objective way of tracking my progress. Losing 10 pounds will put me back in the "Healthy" BMI category, so that's my current goal. According to FitSugar, the best time to weigh yourself is in the morning, so the official weigh in will be tomorrow.

At Michaels, we got some frames and mats to use on some prints that I got from trafalgarssquare. I also got an EK Success postage stamp border punch on clearance. They already had Valentine's Day stuff out. Craziness.

Card: I had a piece of green cardstock that I had left over from when I was die cutting leaves for this card. I figured that since the piece was big enough, I could use the negative in another card, as not to waste any crafty supplies. I die cut another set of leaves and covered the space with some American Crafts patterned paper to add some visual interest. Then I used the other spool of washi tape that I got for Christmas. I thought about stamping a sentiment, but then I thought some Thicker alphabet stickers would give the card a little more pop and texture.

Card Specs:
Paper: American Crafts- City Park
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities Foliage
Stickers: American Crafts Fabric Thickers in Patchwork
Washi Tape: from Container Store
White Gel Pen: Uni-Ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

Hi Tina......I went to Micheals yesterday too and like you picked up on clearance the EK postage stamp border punch. I will be interested in seeing what you do with it. I also got the Martha Stewert corner/border punch $32 for 50% off, such a deal could not pass it up!!!
