One Thing

Leads to Another
Yes, one thing always leads to another for me. You asked what I used to collage the napkins with and here is it, Golden Matte Medium. Later this week, when I get ready to collage some of these little tiny violets from Sandy onto this new sister, I will do a quick tutorial. Maybe you'll come back for that......but that's not what I was going to tell you about today.
I know I've said this before, "one thing always leads to another". Monday when I did that quick little sketch with FolkArt on the scrapbook card stock, I liked how it looked and felt while painting. So this morning, I got up and used the above colors to start this new sister. If you want to know exactly what the colors are, go ahead and click on the photo. More on that later....that's not what I was going to tell you about today.

Speaking of napkins, yesterday we were and I was thinking about how one thing always leads to another. Well here is my desk drawer of napkins. You ask where to find wonderful napkins and I can tell you that my blogging friend Suze told me about Tuesday Morning. But that's not really what I was going to tell you about today. But it is a hint.

Besides finding beautiful napkins at Tuesday Morning's I have received napkins from beautiful blogging friend like Sandy(violets yesterday) and Janet and Suze and Ro and Rosemary and Susan and Carolynn and Misty and Zorana and Darla and Fiona and Chantal and Cindy and Pilar and Kate and Terri and I know I have missed someone but don't be mad at me, ok. And receiveing the violets yesterday is the one thing that leads me to this:
Would you want to do a napkin swap?
If so,
Send at least 3 napkins to:
Sharon Tomlinson
126 Bridge Street
Marlin TX 76661

also enclose
one postage stamp
your return address on a little piece of paper

Here is how it will work, how ever many napkins you send me, I will send you that many by return mail. They can be all the same or all different or big or little.
I will use the little piece of paper with your return address to 'collage' onto the envelope. I will use your one stamp and add another if needed.
I will plan to mail the swap on Wednesday, June 25th. That is two weeks, but do it today. No sign up, just do it. Easy peasy. Enough
ps: yes this means one stamp from England, Australia, France, Sweden, Norway, get it? Enough


  1. My daughter use to work at Tuesday Morning here in South Carolina.

  2. What a delightful idea. I am sending off some napkins right away! I am so inspired by your blog, it is a highlight in my day. Thanks for sharing. I have been a napkin collector for a long time and I hope to some of the ones I'm sending are new for you.

  10. Great idea.... I'm doing it (but wont be able to get them sent until Monday now).

    I am looking forward to this.


  12. I have a lovely collection of napkins and woúld be happy to swap with you...I am blogging today and cleaning my desk and sorting my flea market finds of the last 5 months, and doing swaps, and watching the kids watch tv waiting for the shoe to!
