Out of Chipboard!

Good Morning Everyone!

What a beautiful day it is in Central Texas today!  The sun is shining.  The weather is a bit nippy this morning but the weather forecast predicts a high of 79 degrees.  Yes, just two days ago it was sleet and ice!  Looking into the coming week...in a couple of days... sleet and ice predicted again! Texas Weather...Go Figure if you can. HA HA!

With the recent whirlwind of travel, it's been so nice having a few days to catch up on things around the house.  One day left, I guess that means I need to get out and enjoy the day!  Shouldn't be to hard.  Why?  Because for the first time since I have been doing paper crafts, I'm totally out of chipboard!  ME OUT OF CHIPBOARD!  I'm puttering around like a lost soul trying to figure out how I let ordering more slip my mind! Yes, I've finally ordered more and hopefully will see it some time this week!  Ahhhhh panic attack over...LOL!

The cool thing is... I love to do so many things and there are so many things I want to try!  So, it's a great time for other things I enjoy such as a good walk, working in my art journal, pulling out those art goodies I've picked up and never had a chance to work on and play with some Valentine's Day projects I've had on my mind!  Yep a good day!  I better get going as time truly does fly!

I wish everyone an awesome day!  Make it AMAZING!

  2. I order almost all of my chipboard from Uline.com. They are fast at shipping!!!! Look to see if they have a location near you. You can order and pick up at the warehouse. I do it all the time. I feel your pain...love chipboard!!!

  3. Wow... I can not believe you ran out of chipboard! That is so shocking! But as you stated it is a good day to play with other items that you purchased and haven't had too. Here in Wisconsin, it is snowing and they are predicting that Monday and Tuesday will -50 degrees with the Wind Chill! Brrrr... will be staying inside and working projects also! I hope you both have a fabulous day! Hmmm... will we be having "Take Out Tuesday" this week?

  6. Hi Jim, You being out of chip board has to be one of the saddest things in a while. Pulling us out of our craft rooms is good though. I managed to overheat my computer while saving a video, watching a YT and copying files. I had to walk away and visit grandchildren. Did me good. Just as well you didn't think of tipping the cereal out of the box or something instead :-) Glenda

  10. Jim - Be aware the Uline chipboard is either .030 or .050. The lighter is equivalent to the lightweight Petersen Arne and the heavier is heavier the the regular weight PA chip and is harder to cut. (The PA chip is .040). Uline has a warehouse about 15 minutes from my house and I thought I had hit the jackpot last year when I discovered they carried it....and no shipping needed. I was bummed that it wasn't the weight I preferred.

  11. Hilariously, when I saw the title of this post, I naturally assumed you had made something new Out of Chipboard! It never occurred to me you may have, you could have possibly meant you were out of chipboard! Hope your day was wonderful!
