She also sent some wonderful images for me to use in my art....AND the most delicious chocolate from a NYC chocolatier..but that's lonnnnnng gone!!
My friend Karey-Ann, who is also a member of our Tucson Swap Queens group, reminded me that I didn't post a pic of the altered spoon I created for her....I did post the fabulous "skeleton in a coffin spoon" that she created for me. That was back on the October 17th post. So, here's what I created for Karey-Ann...

We spent the weekend busy as little elves, decorating home sweet home...I'll be posting more pix each week, but I'll leave you with my FABULOUS Junk Drawer Calendar ~ inspired by the most creative souls, Deb and Paula, at http://www.2gypsygirls.com/ Last November they offered this amazing class, but alas I was off to Las Vegas with dh to celebrate our 40th anniversary, so I missed it. But, I bought the tutorial and scavenged the materials and put it together and I'm pretty proud of the results...so much fabulous JUNK!! (Be sure to click on the pic to see the details). Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
Have a beautiful, peace-filled week!
