Road Trip and Teeny Tiny Post It Note Holders

The other day I was on Becky's blog, and she shared her mini post it note holders. They were so adorable. So I figured out how to make them and did a tutorial. Hope you don't mind Becky :)
I too love tiny, mini things. Maybe its because I am under 5' (you don't need to know how much under, teehee) that teeny things are just the right size for me. Humm that didn't sound right, lol.

So here is the video. That took me 5 times before it finally uploaded.
Day 25 out of 31 days of video's



Here is a photo to my peeps that don't watch video's ;) I don't like anyone to be left out :) Guess where I am...The good ol' U.S. of A. Look they even put out the Welcome sign for us, teehee. We are in Duluth. Well actually we are actually staying in Superior, Wisconsin. Then, drive over the bridge to Duluth for our shopping.
This was the weather we had for most of the drive. It started off nice, then snowed most of the way. We were surprised that Lake Superior was all open, the ice on the shore was even slivers, not big chunks.
We were going to go to the Olive Garden for supper. So hubby told us all to have a light lunch. We went to Perkins and I had the tiny wrangler burger. Teehee, isn't it cute? Well when we got to Olive Garden it was so packed (we didn't feel like family) and we just wanted to eat and then head back to the hotel. So we ended up at Perkins again. No I didn't have the tiny burger, I had a turkey dinner. I found out the only Scrapbooking Store (which I loved) is has closed down :( I loved that store. So it was only Michael's for me. The prices here are a lot cheaper then back home. Not quite 1/2 price. So here are a few goodies I picked up. I had a coupon for 25% off your whole purchase. But I noticed not to many of the items came up with the discount. Probably some exceptions.
I bought these pretty paper packs, which I don't need, teehee. But I have been doing grungy, vintage albums, I am in the mood for Spring and flowers and birds and all around warmth. Can I get the warmth with the papers? So tomorrow is a full day of shopping, I have teen girls remember, teehee. I don't need anything, really I don't. But I exchanged the money, so it just wouldn't seem right to bring it back home. I should spend it and put it back in its home country. Don't you agree ;)

Hope you all had a wonderful, creative Saturday:)
Tomorrow Red Lobster !!!!!

  2. Oh those bitty posts it are adorable. You are that tiny. well girl I never would have guessed I was taller then you. I thought we were about the same height. well if you wear heals we might be;) LOL
    Oh look at the goodies. Sorry your favorite store closed down.:( I hate when that happens.
    I did not see your surprise in that loot so big "SIGH". LOL
    Teenagers- oh I hate shopping with them. We are car shopping for our daughter Katie and she is driving me crazy with it. LOL
    The roads look terrible. Yick, I don't think I would go anywhere with roads like that. Pretty country though.
    Have a safe trip back and yes be sure to spend all your loot. We appreciate the business. LOL

  5. Tracy, I love how these turned out! Thanks for the shout out too :) I'm loving the magnetic closure, where did you find those little magnets? Hope you all have a safe and fun trip down here. Looks like you got some great stuff at Michaels. I'm loving those Cling stamps you picked up!

  12. Hi Tracy,
    Just been playing catch-up on your blog, and these teeny post-it note holders are fabulous and would make great little stocking fillers for my two older children.
    I love your tutorials, they are so easy to follow, I was just wondering if there was a way you could put a section on your side bar with links to all your tutorials so they are easy to find when I want to have a go at one of them.
    Have a great week.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x
    p.s. your nails always look so nice on your videos.
