Playing with lace
I have so many wonderful new toys to play with right now - I received the March Jenni Bowlin kit (purchased partly with the gift certificate that I won) and a fantastic fiber selection, hand dyed ribbons, and a stamp from Joggles (won a gift certificate from the Sketchbook Challenge), a few new Prima papers and flowers from the lss in Sarasota (all they had was Moulin rouge, which isn't my favorite but if I want to continue doing the BAPs, I needed a bit of new product), some new watercolor paints, a Visual journal, a book from the Ringling Museum about the fantastic botanical illustration exhibit that they have going on right now, and a cool watercolor book by the Alexander brothers that I have been wanting and found for just a dollar. Life is so abundant! Happy happy!
I feel a bit sad to be so happy when there is so much suffering in Japan. I cannot begin to imagine how terrible life is there right now. I am sending prayers as I know all of you are also. This year has seen so much suffering and upheaval in just 3 months -
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the new These are a few of my favorite things challenge - and please send get well soon thoughts to Julie T-W, the boss of TAAFOMFT. Both she and her sweet daughter Brookie had surgery last week.
