Yesterday, while having a Monday, I drifted off with a pencil in my hand and a scrap of paper....to the place where I escape to.

Then the nice letter carrier lady brought me two packages. One was an ATC swap that I was in. That's when I remembered that I didn't even take a picture of the ones I sent. Hard to believe I know.
The second package was from Sandy with beautiful vintage cloth napkins that I won on a draw. Sandy also sent me a lovely little package of paper napkins with violets on them.
You know me, glue it down quick so as not to hoard. So I got up on the lovely Tuesday morning and glued the sketch along with a bit of napkin into my inspiration journal.
You know how one thing always leads to another.........
for me
It has and I'm gonna tell you about it tomorrow because for today.....enough


  1. Sharon - what a gorgeous journal page. It must've really picked up your Monday to receive the surprises in the mail! How fun! I love the violets on the page, the color is intense and gorgeous.

  8. OK...so leave us hanging. I love those napkins! My goal this year is to stop with the hoarding, and it's really hard for me but I am doing it.
    I love the new banner.

  9. The sweetest of violets.......and I recognize that strip of colorful ribbon thread! Love it.

  11. Never "enough Sharon"....ha..ha! Can't wait to see what you created! Like your idea of picking a theme even after we have started.....why didn't I think of that..LOL!

  12. Sister's with violets! I just know they are coming and I can't wait.


  13. Oh this is going to be gorgeous! I have napkins but never used them like this! Awesome!

  14. Hi Sharon,
    So glad that the parcel made it! I knew you'd do something amazing with those napkins. I loved the tissue paper too that I sent you and can't wait to see that show up in your ART!
    Have a fabulous weekend.
    Sandy :)

  15. Hi Sharon your journal is beautiful. I love the page with the violets, as they were my dads favourite flower. My dad passed away when I was only 15 and when I see or smell violets now I always think of him.
    Coincidence... you did this post on June 10 and that was my dads birthday!!!
