Sunny Sunday

I decided I was finally going to cut my hair. I'd been wanting to do it for years. And, no that wasn't a piece that had forgotten to be cut. I left it there to twirl in my fingers while deep in thought about layouts, techniques, and turning trash to cherished treasures. Yes, I looove my new cut -- 6 inches, Rhonda estimated.

This is the way I used to have it in high school -- circa Daisy Gamble's bob in On a Clear Day.

Rebecca told me I would look like an old lady if I cut it. I beg to differ.

In other news, we started the Altered Book Club yesterday. The turn out was small, but seems promising. I have so many ideas and I'm really excited to see something like this take off! Zoom! (cheesy, I know). I hear my husband's soft 'zzzz's so I think I will join him. Whatever will I dream up this afternoon.

The Guitar Pic Tin

I am had so much fun creating this little trinket for my bro. And he was so holy last week when we were praying it just made me feel so special to be his big sis. Here is a sneek peek of the Altoid Tin I altered for him. He said he loves it!

Fab Finds

So, here I am writing my first blog. Well, as the subject goes, I've found something fabulous (actually a few somethings). I decided to take a trip to The Rag Shop, just a quick look (yeah, we all know what that means) after an uneventful visit to The Red, White, and Blue Thrift Store. And while the day was a scorching 104 degrees, I managed to keep my cool when I saw the florescent signs -- GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE. While yet another sign yelled, EVERYTHING MUST GO, I only left 28 dollars worth.
I spy something large and wooden and black. Yes, it's the cork/chalkboard. I was thinking for the great bargain price of 4 dollars, I could turn it into a priceless piece of craft-aliciousness. OH Yeah, the juices are flowin'! And yes, those are some hip paisley rub-ons, awesome wide ribbons, cool papers, the cutest buttons, and the most adorable chipboard letters! I can't wait to see what these treasures these can make!
