TE Sketch Challenge #155

Estate sale: Now that the warmer weather is setting in, I feel like there are more yard/rummage/estate sales to go to during the weekends. "Whoo hoo," says this deal-finding gal. Today, I went to 1 rummage sale that was a total bomb and I didn't get anything there, but then afterwards I went to an estate sale where I found a hammer and 2 pairs of scissors for a total of $4. One of the scissors is for the kitchen and the other (retail price $14.69) is for crafting, especially with paper piecing. I don't have any hand tools at home, and I don't feel like paying full price for them. Every time I wanted to hang something at the house, I had to borrow my mom's hammer, but now I don't need to do that. Screwdrivers and a wrench are next on the list.

Family/movie: I went over to my parents' house tonight for dinner to celebrate my dad's birthday. We got Italian food from That's Amore and my cousin made custard for dessert. I'm super stuffed. Once the conversation ventured to Taiwanese politics, I promptly made my way downstairs to watch the other Redbox movie that I got yesterday- Friends with Benefits. It was cute, but I've seen better romantic comedies. While I've been known to say a few curse words or so, I felt like they were sprinkled all over the movie way too much. Do people really talk like that??

Cards: I made two cards was requested by Mom, who wanted to give a "congratulations on your new house" card to her sister and then a birthday card for Dad (I used Taylored Expressions Sketch #155 as inspiration).
