but first.....look at this. I received this huge bag of beautiful napkins and papers from my bloggin-buddy in Australia, Ro. And would you just zero in on the hand made stamp she sent me. So clever! it is actually 6 stamps because she has carved on all six sides. This surely gave me one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments. And you know what? Don't tell her but I'm gonna surprise her with one just as soon as I get a moment to make it.
I tell you this is like getting a whole bag of inspiration. And that's a good thing but boy I do have to rein in my muse or rather give her a little direction because I have so many things to get done. Don't worry, for the most part, it is ART things. The sheets are in the washing machine and I've got dh lined up to make chicken on the grill and I do have one little bathroom cleaning chore planned and I'm not looking for dust bunnies today.
So, here I go making another Art Gift Journal. This one is a special order and I'm going to concentrate on it this weekend. The person who ordered it is going to gift it to a very special kindred spirit friend. So, there is a theme. I'm ready to start the pages as I have prepped the book and this is the first page that "happened" last night before the prep was finished. Norah's here and we've got to go now and I will share....
