I hope everyone had a marvelous weekend with the same beautiful weather we had here in the mountains!
I'll be back later this week with a fun give away announcement. And next week I have another exciting new announcement. But ssshhh, I can't say anything about it til next week. ;-)

My lovely partner was the fabulous Sherry Smyth of Esprit*d'Art and I have some photos (that do not do the items justice believe me.) She send a fairy figurine with the most magnificent wings ever. I'm still pondering about a name for my little fae. In addition I received a gorgeous card Sherry created and the saying on the front says,
Dreams are made of fragile things
Butterfly Breath and Dragonfly wings
And she sent me the little flower button she made. You can't see it but there is an adorable little baby fairy with a crown inside the circle.
I have all of these items sitting with me at my desk and now I can say I'm surrounded with Sherrylove. ;-)

I took time for me today. Stayed away from the computer as much as I could except for some essential emails. It felt good. I didn't really accomplish anything, but it was okay. I'm not sure why I think I must "accomplish" something everyday. I actually opened my sketchbook and played on some pages. And it's not that I necessarily like what I created but the fact that I DID create, that's what was important. And so to that end, I guess I did accomplish something today. ;-)
Don't forget tomorrow the entries for the Sept. Mind Wide Open Challenge Contest will be posted and ready for voting. Again we had a wonderful turnout and absolutely some amazing talent! so come on by, stroll through our "gallery" ;-) and then vote for your favorite. It's always a tough call!
These are what I got listed in the store last night. Now I need to get them listed over at Etsy.
New Paper Designs (we had a request for our web background in a paper and we were happy to comply! The first one you see here is titled Crumpled Shabby ;-)

I wanted to share this with you. The lovely and talented Pat Winters, who was our first Mind Wide Open contest winner sent me this gorgeous little pouch a while back and I've been remiss in getting it up to share it's beauty with you. Let me tell you, I was thrilled and honored and sent Pat an over the top I'm sure thank you note. ;-)
I only had my little camera this morning and couldn't get as close as I wanted without blur, but Pat transferred one of our altered image collage sheet images to fabric and used that as the center motif. It's from the Altered Children series, the little girl riding the fish. The whole pouch has a gorgeous beach/sea/underwater theme and believe me when I say the picture does not even come close to showing you the real beauty of the whole piece. And again I want to shout out to Pat THANK YOU ~THANK YOU!!! :-)
