My new scrapbooking toy!

I have gotten very behind on my project life lately.  Still doing it, just working weeks behind.  I am currently using my Studio Calico PL monthly kits and the Jade core kit.  The Honey PL core kit should be hitting my Hobby Lobby this afternoon and I can't wait to pick it up.  The bright, happy colors are just what I want to use in my PL album.

But that is not what this post is about, I am here to talk about my new TYPEWRITER.  I picked it up yesterday at a local antiques store and I am absolutely thrilled.  It is beautiful and in near perfect condition.  Check it out: 
It is a 1960s Underwood-Olivetti Studio 44 portable typewriter.  The guy at the store didn't even have this baby on display.  I found one typewriter in the shop but it was way too expensive for my tastes.  I asked at the counter and the owner took me back to the storeroom to show me this one.  He originally had it listed for $140 but I was able to use my mad negotiating skills to get him down to $60.  Yay!

I spent yesterday afternoon working on Week 14 of my PL album and I loved the look of typing up my journaling cards.  I think I am going to love interspersing my handwriting with typed font. 

One last pic of where I have been scrapping lately.  The weather in Washington has been beautiful for the last two weeks so I have spent most of my time outside in the sunshine. 
Since this picture was taken, I spruced up my area a little bit.  I got a new bright striped tablecloth and added an umbrella to the table.  I am making myself right at home out on the deck.  I only go into sleep!

Happy Scrapping!
