Chair-ish. Ha!

Have you ever seen something you like, but you're not sure why you like it or what you'd do with it if you had it? That's this stamp set. See, I'm one of those Papertrey Ink fanatics. When Nichole starts her sneak peeks on the 5th of every month (right around the corner!), I'm there, even though you only get to see one little black & white image from an upcoming set. The real excitement starts on the 10th, when you get to see actual projects made with the sets. yes, i know how sad this sounds to the non-stamper. but i'm ok with that. Anyway, most of the time I secretly hope I won't like every set coming out, cuz who can afford that? This month is the exception. Christmas stamps are coming and those are my favorite! again, sad and again, ok. So, the month On My Couch came out, I saw the little sneak peek and was so relieved I laughed. Furniture? Yeah, that's one I'll use every day. Phew! Then the designer, Lisa Johnson, started making samples with it and the more I looked at it, the more I had to have it. I still have no idea why. Maybe I loved the idea of coloring the couch & chairs. Or maybe it was the sentiments (chair-ish. i must be 5, cuz that cracks me up. although, a 5 year old wouldn't really get that...). Whatever. I just know that sometimes stuff just doesn't make sense, but if it makes you happy, isn't that all that really matters?

Stamps: On My Couch & Polka Dot Basics (PTI), Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Enchanted Evening (PTI), Paper: white & Enchanted Evening (PTI), Accessories: Copics:

Now I know why you have 3 million Copics -- those chairs are stunning! And I guess I'm 5, too, because I cracked up at the sentiment. And love the polka dots; they add the zing!
