Birthday Wishes

Hey Bleeps! It's Friday Eve and that's reason to start celebrating! I've got a card to share with you today to celebrate a birthday! Oh boy do I have a lot to do tomorrow. My final gallery upload of SCS DD DT - YIKES! Why do I wait until the last minute! I tried last night, but barely got one project finished. I have a lot more to do. How did this happen during my last month? :) I hope I can pull through! You've got to check out the gallery on Friday just to see what I come up with. This is going to be a long day ahead!

Here is a photo from my Project 365 app (yesterday). Meet my new, trendy lunch tote! I learned about it from watching the Food Network. It's by Built NY and it's made from wet suit material! It's insulated and machine washable. They have a lot of cute designs and styles. They even make laptop sleeves and all sorts of neat finds. I purchased mine on Macys.com because they were having an online sale when I made my purchase. It's soft and folds flat when it's empty! I really like it so much better than my mini lunch BOX! Just thought I'd share since the Project 365 app doesn't load my journaling portion...UGH! I think an update is on its way!

Alrighty, Bleeps...pray for me! Thanks so much and enjoy your day!

Thanks for sharing a picture of your lunch tote. I love the colors and the fact that it has polka dots in many colors makes me want to buy one (even though I would barely use it). TFS
