After the Glitter is Gone...

Well, is Glitter actually ever really gone? I think not. It's still sprinkled along the hearth, certainly in the carpet and even outside on the Wishing Tree... but that's another story. Once again Glitterfest was such fun and I'm so grateful for all the wonderful artists that surrounded me and the fabulous people who stopped by my booth! I finally got to see the very talented Sherry from Got Art and thank her in person for the lovely tree collage she sent me. and my sweet friend Lisa from Vintage Bling who nearly sold out of her fabulous Bling Babies! You've got to check these out.

Now this week, amid the wind down for my kids at school, and attempting to get my house back to a pre-Glitterfest state of less confusion (who am I kidding) I made just one little stop by the Goodwill around the corner from my house and found some very cool props for Glitterfest Fall and beyond! Just thought I'd share a bit of my haul! I LOVE this old little chair, which I may have to fight Bella for...Mr. Owl is fantastic, my big splurge at $9.99 that I just couldn't resist . And then there's these brand spankin' new beaded thongs... that match my new turquoise painted toes just perfectly! Of course there was more, but we'll have to save that for later :)

Ciao for now!

So Long Overdue and a few Thank Yous!

Wow, I can't Imagine it's been a whole month since my last post. I'd like say I've been furiously busy with all sorts of "fun" stuff to share with all of you, or keeping up with all the wonderful new growth on our Wishing tree, but unfortunately that's not exactly been the case. My Mom was very sick and needed care after spending over a week in the hospital, I had huge commitments at school, and life just seemed to plow on. Thankfully my Mom is healing now, my commitments at school lessened and creativity abounds once again! Can't believe Glitterfest is next week! My little studio area has crept over a good portion of my living room floor but my family is patient and loves me. Here's what I mean...Quite a while ago I got a beautiful "Random Act of Kindness" in the mail from the lovely and generous Sherry from Got Art. I kept wanting to do a post just for her because her package came at a time when I really needed it. Blessings are like that. :) Thank you so much Sherry. Your beautiful Tree collage has a special place on my wall right next to our front door so I see it last,whenever I leave or first when I return home. The colors and textures are so perfect, but my photos certainly do not do the piece justice. Such a thing of sweet beauty and kindness sent to me completely out of the blue! How sweet is that Sherry.

And of the Pasta arrived! Thank you, thank you Cheryl! I'm so excited. The quality looks great and I see ravioli in our near future :)When I finally get back to cooking for fun, I'll post a yummy pic. But for now, I better get my Glitter on!

Ciao for now!
