Good Birthday Shopping & Some Scary news...

My stepson George will be deploying tomorrow. I just want to wish him well, and pray for his swift and safe return home.  Words can't express how much we love you, how proud we are of you, and how much we miss you already. Big Hugs!

I wanted to say that first before I went any further but I also want to share my week with you.
 Thursday was my birthday and I got to go to some craft fairs with Wanda over at Two Crafty Mules. Sadly we didn't get a picture together even though we meant to. As well as my cousin Kerri, it was such a beautiful day and we had a great time hanging out.
 I did get a chance to get a picture with a very talented lady I used to work with once upon a time at Hobby Lobby. And managed to buy one of her super cute creations.... this adorable paper mache snow man pail. 

 Also at the craft fair we saw this gal spinning cotton into yard. It was neat to watch and she just loves to do it.

Friday, my best friend Lydia and I meant to go to the War Eagle Craft fair but we got sidetracked with the hundreds of yard sales going on that weekend (because it was craft fair weekend)
 I have been looking for these old brass drawer pulls for a VERY LONG TIME and would you believe I came across TWO different yard sales that had them. Luck was definitely with me! SCORE!
 I also found these gorgeous enamelware fixtures that were the PERFECT SHADE OF BLUE! I couldn't have done that again if I tried. They will be very handy in the studio.

 Also last week I found these old door knobs, and these old jello molds.

 I went to the flea market with my hubby Sat and found this old paper cutter with a giant roll of paper on it in the perfect shade of blue also. This will be great to protect my work bench, I'll just roll out some paper whenever I plan to paint etc.

As you can see I'm starting to get things moved into the studio!
 I made the curtains over the shelves and did my very first Citrasolv image transfer! I used two different images from the Graphics Fairy. A frame and the crown.

Also I'm getting some small items moved into the studio as well. It's all coming along!
