Sweet finds and making a few new things!

A couple of the boys gave me Hobby Lobby gift certificates for Mother's Day!
Well...I lasted until Tuesday and had to bust loose and see what
treasures I could find (with my coupon in tow of course!)

I found a sweet little stash of goodies too!
A box of gorgeous cards...a photo box that was half off...
And Tim Holtz photo frames!!! How cool is that??
A few bezels as I have a new bottle of Ice Resin
and want to create some simple necklaces...
I even found some teeny, tiny ball chains to hold them too!

The moss is for the new ferns for my front porch,
I love to cover the dirt to retain the moisture ~

And I always need the natural colored thread...and needles!

And what have I been working on?
Slowly but surely I've been working on two new flea bags!
One is for a friend but one will hit the Etsy shop soon...

I can only hope they turn out as good as my last two in the pic below!

OH! And don't forget to enter my seam binding giveaway HERE!!!
I love this stuff so much I want to share some with you....

Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday sweet friends,

hugs and love,

Lucky you, Dawn! I'm sure I'd use up any Hobby Lobby gift cards in one visit! You got some nice things, too. Those bags are beautiful, I'm sure the ones you are making now will be just as lovely. Thanks to you, I've been checking out doiles, lace and crochet pieces when I'm out at yard sales now to add to my own creations. The only thing I'm not sure of, and if you get a chance and can reply to me, is the best way to attach them. Should I attempt to sew them on, which can be difficult with some pieces {like small totes} or use fabric glue?

SCORE ~ what a haul from Hobby Lobby... can't wait to see what you Create with all the wonderful "Stuff" I'm always thrilled to get a gift card to my favorite places, like Hob Lob or Joann's (I use to work at Michael's for many years, but when they stopped taking coupons for Magazines & Books, I switched over to Joann's)
Of course I joined your give-a-way, I have my fingers crossed!
Have a wonderful week,

I just love it when you go craft shopping! Seriously, every single time you post about new products, I go looking for some. I have no clue what is new because I try not to go into those stores and spend my whole salary, LOL

Thanks for sharing and keeping us in the know. xo

Hello Dawn. I'm a new follower and I love the flea bags. Everything you do looks very interesting to me. I like to invite you to visit the Cottage. You would be most welcome. I saw a little lavender sachet that you made on Pamela's, Playing with my Camera. I would love to order one if they are still available. It says "A Little Bird Whispered to Me..The Crystal Slipper. I looked on your Etsy site but couldn't find it..Happy Wednesday..Judy
