Hi, it's technically Sunday, but at 1:20am I'm still up from Saturday. I've had so much I've thought I would have posted by now but fighting the flu not to mention Kimber with the flu...everyone's so needy around here....and there's only been me to be the caretaker. Yeah, I know...welcome to motherhood.
How can I complain....I've gotten so many awesome treasures lately. It's my birthday month...in case you haven't read that the first million times I've posted it lately...I've been wanting to share some of them.
I've taken photos of things totally intermingled. The above photo contains new ribbon from costco, a bunny and pink xmas tree, and old metal "R" on my trip to visit stacie a while ago...The little pigs, perfume bottle, Woman magazine, dishes are from an auction, the little flower girls on top of the candle are from my collection that I'm sending to my mom for her birthday. I won't go into this detail for all the pictures, if you want to know the origins of anything you can visit my flicker pages and peek in the "treasures" group. :)
I did want to show mom what I won on ebay....(she has had one exactly like it since I was a little girl and I've been dying for it...) I actually just won it, haven't held it in my hands, but I'm happy about it.
Now, back to business...I want to thank those of you who sent your bday wishes...that's just sweet...I got a surprise package the weekend before my bday from stace... Yummy chocolate, an awesome Burts Bees set and some fun post its and notepad...thanks stace! I received another package from my friend, Norma....she sent me the long awaited chunkybook she hosted that I participated in last year. It's so gorgeous and well worth the wait... She included lots of goodies that totally made my day when the box came. Thanks norma!!
Next, I got the sweetest card from Cinda Oliverio whom I just adore. She's always so generous with a memory that's so much better than mine...her wonderful card came on the same day I received my Erratica Zine!
I received the most incredible cork doll from my friend, Bambi Doe Blake. She's hosting a cork doll swap that I need to talk to her about and bambi, I promise I'll call...I've just been blah and busy...This doll is so beautiful, I'll post a picture of the one I make for her when it's done. (we did a little cork exchange between the two of us.) On the day Bambi's beautiful doll arrived, I also received an awesome artpiece I bought from Jenny Elkins. I have it in the same photo tucked inside a vintage box that bambi's doll arrived in. I just love it.
The rest of these photos are treasures from an auction I attended and from my trip to seattle.
So many fun things!
I've got photos that I'll be posting on my Artsy Inspirations blog of two awesome orders I received from two of my favorite collage sources! I'll do that tomorrow...or technically, later today. :) oxoxo
