FIVE for Friday (August 7th)

My brother Cougar and his wife Hillary and their kids drove in last night just in time for some impressive thunder and lightning. I rained hard most of the night and now it smells so good outside — anyway, we are going to play and have fun for a couple of days, but I'll leave you with FIVE for Friday … have a wonderful weekend.

LOVE the new line of Green is Good notebooks from Compendium, and right now you can save 30% on everything with the promo code FRIENDS30 — of course you can only use this promo if you are in fact a friend. NOTE: If you buy something you are considered a friend. Love how that works.

So, I have this favorite trail mix that I can only get at select Target stores. It is made up of raw cashews, dried cranberries and almonds. Whenever I find it, I buy 3 bags. It makes me that happy. Guess what? I can now make my own CUSTOM trail mixes at You Bar. Yes, I know I could probably buy all this stuff in bulk and make my own mixes at home. But would NOT be as fun, as naming my mix and having sent to my doorstep in cute little packages. We live in a such a clever, clever world of customization.

Cathy is doing a give-away today from the most colorful collection of Laurie Gale. Go now and cross your fingers you WIN. The bracelets I want are a bit on the expensive side, but when you understand the artistry that goes into Laurie's jewelry, you'll gladly pay.

Speaking of jewelry, I'm going to need this necklace the next couple of weeks — StudioKin has lots of  Scrabble Tile pendants and @ $6.25, you can get more than one!

I got to chat with Rebecca at ScrapBlog this week and she shared some of her highlights from CHA — Happy Tape is one of them. Since I'm on my way to Japan in September, I felt obliged to get me some.

Can't wait to play.
