So I don't want you to worry about me - but it was close.
I had to drop off some card samples and things at Scrapology yesterday for some upcoming classes. Scrapology is out by the lake, and the commute involves a perpetually-under-construction-and-horrifyingly-high-speed-and-dangerous-road-upon-which-drivers-behave-like-pithed-frogs stretch of highway that can age a person on the best of days.
But yesterday was not the best of days.
This is because while I was trying to navigate in the four inches between me and oncoming traffic on the left and the four inches between me and the concrete construction barrier on the right, I suddenly became aware of a LARGE ANGRY STINKBUG FLYING AROUND IN MY CAR!
Companies whose employees have a need to perform the equivalent of the game of Operation after 86 shots of espresso should be recruiting me at any moment now because I did NOT veer into either oncoming traffic or the construction barrier, despite my vociferous screaming and brain twitching.
For the love of all things holy, can we PLEASE eradicate these things from the earth??
By the time I got to a light, rolled down the windows and flailed around like I was in a very sub-par 80's music video, I am quite positive my life was shortened by decades and many people around me tweeted videos of my fit.
Thank goodness that I could totally conquer anything after that!!!
After I got home, I tackled two challenges since my adrenaline was coursing. First, the incredibly pretty Color Throwdown.
Then - my friend Korin said she hadn't stamped in a WEEK! That is WAY scarier than a stinkbug - so we held our own challenge, inspired by this pinterest beaty.

Now, I can categorically state that "naughty" does NOT include the EVIL that is a stinkbug. Naughty is something cute, like when your cat bats something onto the floor or when your baby colors your couch with a marker.
Stinkbugs - they are harrowing.
