I'm a dork.

I swear, sometimes I just need to SLOW DOWN. I bought the matchy hand towel and wet wipes container at the Target dollar spot a few weeks ago, and decided to alter them with the new Hanna Stamps "Domestic Goddess" cleaning set. I brought everything to my Aunt's stamping get together, and putzed and messed around with it for the longest time! It turned out kind of cute, and it was 0h-so-handy to have the wet wipes right there at my stamp station! I cleaned up a storm with these wet wipes! I cleaned my stamps, my space at the table, my hands (MULTIPLE TIMES!) I loved the idea SO much that I went back and bought *5* more sets of them in different colors to make for some girlfriends that are meeting next week for a stamping get-together! WOWZER, THEY'RE GONNA LOVE 'EM, I thought. And then it happened. I actually looked at the wet-wipes container closely. Hmph. These are not wet wipes, they are GLASS CLEANER WIPES. As in WINDEX! So here's the moral of the story. Use actual WET WIPES if you try to duplicate my idea! Geez Louise.
Paper: Crate "Carnival" Snowcone & Roller Coaster.
Ribbon: May Arts
Markers: Copic
**************
That puts me over my cleaning allowance this month, so I'm off to lay on the couch to reverse some of the good that I've done. :)

You are working too hard! :) But the set looks amazing!! You still need glass cleaning wipes to clean, right?? It'll work! Your friends will love it!

I love it! :) And so what if they're window wipes. I'm sure you can use these quickly in a stamping space.

I really love the bright colors of the set you did -- green is so cheery! I can't wait to get that set -- I've got ideas...! Sorry about the glass wipes -- I don't know if I'd go through multiple containers, but I'm sure I'd go through one relatively quickly. Your friends will love them! Jeanne
