stuff that life is made of

sometimes you are fortunate enough to find the time to do the things you love the most...and, other times, you let life get in the way...

this weekend, i managed to spend time with a fabulous friend, spend hours creating...getting inky, enjoy one of my favorite meals, hit some favorite junkin' spots, watch a great movie, eat homemade ice-cream right out of the ice-cream maker, and serve up and drink some fabulous coffee...

here is the little tag with big that i mean that i designed it to send out to some of our great customers at the emporium...

i LOVE  the new Wallpaper & Wood Stamp from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous!

after stamping the background and inking the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, i stamped the swirly flourish from the set Artful Flight...adding a few dots of Flamingo Liquid Pearls...

the flower is vintage sheet music cut with the Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Tattered Florals Die from Sizzix...and i adore it!!! i popped a Basic Grey brad in the center and tied tulle around it

the leaves are cut from the Kraft Resist Paper Stash using the Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Branch & Leaf Die...i inked them with Peeled Paint Distress Stain then inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink...

Final touch...dyed seam i predictable, or what?

simple and sweet, with touchs of things i love!

Sunday Junkin'

The weather was perfection this weekend...and perfect weather on a Sunday means: FLEA MARKET!!! 


Just a few fun things...just enough to satisfy my junkin' heart!  I loved finding this reminds me of a sweet friend I am missing this week.  And, those straws are just too cute to display for Valentine's Day...
