Well, I had a MARATHON shopping day!! My birthday was WONDERFUL!!!! I had lunch with my friend Dawn ~ and we always enjoy seeing each other....from there I did get to search around Hobby Lobby, found several goodies and I moved on to Jo-Ann Etc. then lastly, I did go to Barnes & Noble. The photos below show all my treasures!!!! I used 50% off coupons....as Jo-Ann's will accept Michael's coupons and they do have the BEST books ever. Just look at the book from Ruth Rae! Shadow boxes for nests, eggs to paint, molds for paper clay, a cropadile tool (half off!), scrapbooking papers, etc!!!! Good grief, I've got to get so busy.....creating my little heart out.
Yes, I bought a book and the supplies to start needle felting!!! I hope I can do this....just look at how precious the little projects are in the book ~
Lastly, a sweet book, half off at the book store that has the most incredible old illustrations in it. I'll have to share a few with you!! I have this book but it's very old and small. This one has been reproduced and looks gorgeous!!
The best birthday gift of all????? Sweet Jenny Doh emails me to let me know my apron is going to be ON THE COVER of the premier issue of Apron-ology!!!!! HOW AMAZINGLY COOL IS THAT??? Thank you all so much for being so very encouraging and supportive....You all are such wonderful cheerleaders and friends to me! You must know that I love creating and love it even more now because you. inspire. me!
Wishing you all a wonderful, relaxing weekend sweet friends ~
