well, it's quite simple, actually.
i've been a coffee drinker for a number of years, but to be honest, i never brewed my own; i bought the scrummy gourmet kind when i went to cute little coffeehouses to hang out with my chickens.
but since moving to NJ, i have discovered something wonderful: WAWA. they have THE BEST dark roast coffee, and nobody can compete, as far as i'm concerned. i was never a big fan of Tim Horton's coffee when i lived in Canada, i've never actually ENJOYED Starbucks (although Seattle's Best is pretty nifty), and Dunkin' Donuts and 7-11 frequently BURN their coffee, or just can't quite get it down pat.
WaWa, however, has NEVER given me a bad cup o'joe. for that, WaWa, i salute you!
this here layout (is it a layout if it doesn't include photos?) is for the challenge at Paper Play - they called for handwriting on your projects. i've never been embarrassed to hand write sentiments - i blame the year and a half of drafting i took in college, where it always had to be PERFECT. it's not perfect now, but it'll do, pig. :)
and Die Cut Dreams has a RECYCLE IT challenge, so i decided to make good use of my coffee snugs (appropriate, no?). i use these things quite often when i'm creating, as i just LURRRRVE the corrugated or dotty textures and that shabby look. the logos i used come from discarded coffee cups.
side note: when i make my own coffee, i ONLY buy from Trader Joe's. i've tried several different kinds from TJ's, but my favourite is their new "Joe" brand, which is wonderfully cheap (!!!) and plenty tasty!
happily, my migraine disappeared this afternoon, once i was able to stomach a piece of toast and a cup o'Joe (the Joe brand). it was a fabulous workday, i got TONS accomplished, and while hubbin and i didn't get to Jo-Ann tonight because The Son's plans went a little wonky, we still had a nice night to ourselves and went out for tacos. life is good.
