I have rekindled my love with the internet today. Don't get me wrong, most days I like it, A Lot, for the obvious reasons of writing my blog and reading all of yours, but today...today I LOVE it!! I ran around this horribly cold town most of the morning with a small child that is still leaking snot trying to find several items. Albeit rather unique items, but still. I only checked a couple stores and was contemplating starting in the bizzarre hobby shops, etc, when I said to myself DUH, go home and look online!!! So, I did. Now in the warm coziness of my own home, with the little one asleep in her bed I got a great deal on microscope slides, glass test tubes and copper foil tape. The shipping was more than the cost of my whole order, but I just don't care! I saved that much in gas and patience today!!
Another reason I am loving the internet today is all the free stuff that's out there. A little copy and paste of some free html code from here and I have a counter on the bottom of my page!
No longer are we limited by miles. Whatever your crafty heart desires can be found with the simple click of a mouse. However, be cautioned. Maybe its just me, but when I shop online, I feel like I am shopping with play money! I spend way more money on something than I would in person. But, I guess the point is that I can't get it in person. What did we do before all of this?
I will leave you with some fun links that help me when my inspiration is lacking.
Color Combo Ideas - I use this all the time for my mini-part-time job in marketing...have I told you about that? Not too exciting, but I'll save it for another day.
