Bugaboo Stamps

Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seiously snarky to sugar sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.

  14. Welcome to another edition of "Things Eliza Wears Every Day!" Today we're taking a look at the Timberland boots Timberland Outlet online I bought before going on trip to Iceland in November that I have not removed since. That's barely an exaggeration. Breaking them in was admittedly painful — blisters everywhere —Timberland Sale but once I did, they promptly became the most comfortable shoes I own.
