This Week's Goodies

While Miss S was at her party yesterday, I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing hour at Goodwill all by myself:) Here are some of the goodies I found - a grab bag of sewing goodies, Japanese activity book, ME poster book and a couple kids books for upcoming packages that I am putting together.

An awesome little orange pyrex bowl, two Japanese sake glasses (I think these will become pincushions), loads of cool fabric...


And my favorite fabric find of the day...this very 70's pink gingham with this adorable girl on it. I think this would make some great bags as the fabric is about home decor weight.

I finished up these atcs for a swap on flickr - the theme is "Asian" - I layered origami paper with text on how to learn Japanese. I think they turned out really cool:)

This week will be busy...Monday is hockey for hubby, Tuesday is Primary activity for Miss S, Wednesday is game night for me.. but starting Thursday I have 6 days off of work. We'll hang around the house for a few days and then we are going camping in Durango for a few days. I can't wait. It will be so nice to relax a little bit. I think we probably will not even take the laptop to Durango with us even though the campground has free wireless. It will be fun to be "unplugged" for a few days:)

Hi, Raesha. The altered journal you posted yesterday is really cool. I like the lyrics you used (although, as I only have boys, and we don't have cable, we're only faintly familiar w/ Hannah Montana). Anyway, could you post a link for the tutorial for the journal--I went to look at SisTV, but couldn't figure out where it was. Thanks!

Do you collect Mary Engelbreit stuff? I see her stuff in my local DI on a fairly regular basis. Should I be getting it for you ?

All I saw at our new local Goodwill was leopard print towels. Used leopard print towels. They were in ragged condition hanging up on hangers and I couldn't stop staring at them and wondering who was going to buy it. Maybe we got there after the good stuff was picked out already?

Raesha, bring your rain slicker! It's been raining in Durango almost everyday for the past couple of weeks. Those gorgeous mountain showers. Here in Aztec, just 30 miles south of Durango, we just get light showers and the wind that blows the storm in & out. Oh yeah, this is New Mexico....LOL.
