I'm Still Here

Yes, I am still here!  During my unannounced hiatus I was enjoying a visit from my dear MIL.  We shopped, we ate, we spent time with family and we ate some more.  In the evenings we visited while I worked in the art room and I managed to finish up three new inspiration kits for the Etsy shop.  They aren't listed yet as I write this but I will be getting back to my regularly scheduled programming shortly.
 Here are a few of my favorite buttons from a recent score.  Thank you Nina and Joe!  I have more to sort and clean so stay tuned.
I received my purchase from Laurie's Etsy shop, Indulge Your Shelf and she included these yummy fabrics and a handmade matchbox filled with buttons.  She knows me well.  Thank you, Laurie!
Later this week I will be attending the Plucky Maiden's show at McMenamins' Edgefield.
Summer is good and August is just beginning.  Does anyone else feel like time slowed down this Summer??  I don't know why my world feels that way ('bout time!) but I'll take it!
IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Jennifer from Adventures in Mixed Media identified the elf doll as The Little Sandman, a German television character.  The program has been running from 1959 until now so likely a little newer than the clerk at VOA thought.  Thank you Jennifer!

More buttons, you lucky girl. The inspirations kits are so pretty, something I've always wanted to do, but don't have your eye for pulling it all together. Cute goodies from Laurie's shop, love those birds. Hope you have a fun time at Plucky Maidens!!

I am feeling like time slowed down mainly because for the first time in my adult life, I don't start back to school next week. I still can't believe this is my new life.

Have fun with all your new goodies.
