With all this wierd weather it seems like the world has spun off it's axis and is either hurling towards the sun (if you live in the eastern US and Canada) or towards Pluto if you live on the west coast. My sister tells me it was 41 degrees celcius (106 degrees F) yesterday in Toronto and it was 9 (48 degress F) here in Vancouver. Today, rain, rain and thunderstorms (which we rarely get here). And those poor folks in the US with floods and tornados – so sad and CRAZY!
Speaking of crazy…have a look at these strawberries…everyone has been saying for days how BIG the strawberries have been this year (imported from Callifornia) and how sweet and juicy they are too. Usually the CA strawberries we get here in Canada look gorgeous but taste like wood and our local berries look like crap and taste like sugar. Go figure….these are gigantic and taste like heaven too. And all the berries this season are like this – are they on steroids or something? What's Arnie putting in the CA water system? LOL Here are 2 of the berries from the box (all were this big) beside a quarter and apple so you can get the size relationship. CRAZY!
My third CRAZY thing today was something I started to do which I thought was crazy until I finished it and now I'm thinking..not so crazy! My friend Sue has some great organizational tips she shares with me on occasion – usually we end up laughing about how I'm going to implement them because I think they are nuts to do….BUT eventually I try them and then I have to admit that they are brilliant. So…Sue tells me that my scrap bins are a mess (bins were also her idea) and I need to sort the scraps by size. So I cut all my pieces into either full size cards, 1/4 cards and then scraps were anything left over. I recycled anything smaller than a 3 x 3 piece and now I have beautiful bins. CRAZY???….I think not! The crazy part is now I'll never hear the end of this from Sue..LMAO
BEFORE AFTER ALL BINS DONE!
Happy Stamping & Sorting,

Na-Na-Na Na- Na- na! Told ya! ;-p
Oh my!! That is the largest strawberries I’ve ever seen in my entire life!!! You could just serve one for each person and they would be satisfied. Crazy!! Here in Norway the strawberries are just starting to arrive on the marked, to a prize that nearly noone can afford, at least if you buy halv a kilo or a kilo. But later they prizes drop and we have the sweetest juiciest strawberries you can imagine. And the have a “normal” size too. Isn’t this a wonderful (though a bit crazy with all the strange weather going on!)time of the year?
Have a great day.

Getting organized is the key to starting on any project. This way I know in advance what colors and sizes I have to work with and what I need to order.
