"Free Candy!"

I made these CD cases slash mixtapes a few months ago. They're totally still waiting to be finished... but they're ultracute :) All my customers (see "Happy Customers" in right sidebar) who blogged their FN purchases will eventually (...yes, i'm a total latecake) get this Thank You in the mail :)
I used 'MacTac' for the woodgrain paper (pre-gluey=really quick), recycled corrigated cardboard for the body, address book pages for the inside skins, vinyl-style cds for a throwback feel and army-hockey tape to hold it all together :) (and the white cd sleeves are found at any dollarstore) All the music is sweet indie :)
TIP: Hockey tape is a great substitution for Gaffer Tape! Discovered this when my thrifty craft mind was wondering the supermarket sports aisle :) I turn sports crafty, lol.
The whole project cost about a $1 each. I'll include a tutorial for them with the Kit Instructions :)
(embossed on back) these ice cream bowls are yummy.
they sold on etsy before i could snag em.

Autumn from South Carolina joined the Freckled Nest Design Team last week! She's SO SO cool! We love her!
(FN chick, Jessica from Funky Finds makes these rad graphics! Check out her and Joe's company, Right On Graphics if you need stuff! Super talented!)
This is still totally the perfect word for my 2008!
(from my art journal. i'm going to write stuff in the white space. haven't got to it yet.) I wanna give her a hug. Lola misses humpin her. I got her a new toy, and she plays with it like it's Penny. And sleeps with it. I miss Penny.
I'm so in smittensville these days :)

It's a long long weekend this weekend. Off tomorrow and I think Monday too. Lots of stitching and kit-ing ahead. I wanna catch up. Angela, Donna and Gemma: I publicly declare, your goodies will be made this weekend! and I'll be spending time with Keith... the source of Smittensville ;)
