Wine App's
Wine 100 point rating scale
"Because I'm limited to a certain amount of space in the paper, it seems more productive/useful for me to write about wines that I think are worth trying, so you probably won't see many wines rated less than 80 in the paper. I typically try to find redeeming qualities in wines I write about; if a wine is well-made and has potential for people to enjoy, that's probably good enough for a lower-80s score to me. Wines that over-deliver relative to their price point will typically rank anywhere from 87 to 91ish. If a wine is simply outstanding and/or shows the potential to be cellared for a while and mature into a thing of beauty, then we're looking at 90ish points and up."

November Crafty Wishlist!

Guess what? I bought a house! Yay!!! This means I can make it my own, decorate it with all these ideas I've had in my head and, naturally, plan out a crafty space! I'll share some pics of my work in progress over the next few months.

This also means I have to be more careful with my crafty $$. This month I'm planning to visit friends in the US, so I'm hoping to place some orders with PaperTrey Ink and A Muse Studio. And maybe 2Peas, also. Hmm. PLUS, I want to get the new PWCO stamps! Eek! Seems like it's gonna add up and that I'll have to set priorities, which is a good thing. Oh, and did I mention I'll be going to Seattle - aka stamp heaven?! Uh oh...this isn't looking so good! LOL

I'll be editing this post later with my wishlist so I can trim it down.


New PaperWorks Co stamps!
