Crafting, Thrifting and Roller derby!!!

I am currently working on the Jar of Whimsies swap from Craftster and I am so pleased with how my "jar" is turning out. I bought an old silverware storage box at a thrift store and gutted it. I am doing things to both the outside and inside. I finished the inside this morning and am so pleased with how it turned out. I will post pictures once it has been received. I have really had fun with this swap and I can not wait to get it together and send. I feel like I'm being a tease but I am not sure if my partner has been looking at my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise. 

Speaking of thrift stores, we went to the thrift store this morning and I felt like I hit the mother load. Sometimes your thrift luck is just better than others. I spent $7.93 and got a large bag of maps and envelopes and map envelopes, a bag of buttons, a book of Korean children's church songs, a bag of old wooden alphabet blocks, a stamp of a human skeleton, a bag of miscellaneous Halloween things and a glittery calavera for my downstairs bathroom. Seriously... not a bad haul huh? 

Once we got home from shopping we got ready and headed to a Ohio Roller Girls Gang Green bout against the Wisconsin Fox City Foxz. My friend Wendi from work met us there with her friend Krista, neither of them had ever been to a roller derby bout. It was a good action packed bout and our ladies cam out on top 95-90. I so love Roller Derby. I may start volunteering for them again and maybe try to ref my way into playing. Of course if I start school that will have to wait until after that, but I can still help out and volunteer for them. Go OHRG!!!
