Today's a GOOD day!

I LOVE days like today! Started off great with a coffee date with Janine, Kelly and Beverley (I have so much to learn from these girls...all amazing scrappers!) at Butlers - soooo yummy, you get a free chocolate with your coffee (not to mention the Chocolate Ganache cake I had to have cos I skipped breakfast - excuses right?)

We went shopping at kikki.K - my first time there, but it won't be my last, see all the CUTE goodies I got? (Mandy, you'd love all the giraffe things there!) I thought this meal planner would be such a good way to remember to take the chicken out of the freezer in time for it to actually thaw before dinner!

The magnetic hooks are so I can hang stuff from my file cabinets....I can't waste an inch of storage space cos I'm such a shop-a-holic! As evidenced below....
Then....when Kelly kindly dropped me home....THIS was in my mailbox....my new Verve stamps! Yippee! Isn't that the fastest shipping ever? Julee rocks! She's such a sweetheart there was also a free stamp and some gorgeous ribbon in the package!

So...I've already made a card - my first Verve card ever! I'm off to take a photo and will be back soon!
