For those who might not be, the story is built upon sequence of logic...if you give a mouse a cookie, then he'll probably ask for a glass of milk, and then a straw, then a napkin ~ so you see where this is going!
My question this week is ~ if you give a girl a snippet roll,
Then she will probably ask for scissors, then paper, then adhesive, then photos, then bling ~ so you see where this is going! As in the original, the story goes full circle back to asking for a cookie or snippet roll.
I guess I just like to justify my quest for all the stuff I need to challenge my muse...
I received the nicest email at the start of my week from Gail at Shabby Cottage Studio
informing me that I won her giveaway...my choice of one of her online classes! What a treat!...Gail is so very talented and it was difficult to choose, but I decided to go with a class that would help me to create special grounds (surfaces) so that I can use inkjet printing more to my advantage for my art. I'm waiting for some supplies to arrive and then I'll be tackling this new frontier. I'll keep you posted on what I'm doing.
I'm participating in the Faerie Shoe Swap hosted by Wendy at Blissangels. My partner is the lovely Kim from Tabby's Place and she received the shoe I made for her, so it's safe to post the pix!

By all means, click on any of the pix for a closer view! This project was a challenge from the construction point of view, but I fell in love with the result and I'd make another in a heartbeat!
Haven't been out in the "hood" for awhile, checking on yard sales. Sooooo, on Saturday we found an Estate Sale AND a yard sale right next to each other!! I'll let the pix do the talking...

|$0.50 - 1.00|
|$4 - enough for patio pillows for the daughters and us!|
