I am definitely catching a cold. =( I truly despise being sick, but then again does any one really LIKE being sick????
I went out yesterday and today to do some shopping...I went to hobby lobby and went through there holiday aisles and found some great halloween (purple, orange & black) trims, as well as some Autumn ones (orange, burgundy and brown) All marked down of course! I grabbed several different other holiday goddies, which honestly at the moment elude me! LOL Back in the clearance section I found some neat little bottle caps...they have letters on them, meant for scrapbooking, but I intend to use them as mini pie/tart tins. I actaully found 2 seperate sizes...so I have some for single serve dishes as well as some for "lovers special' sizes too. I picked up some tiny Christmas ornaments for my trees, as well as some additional 'branch' material...the 6 inch trees they have are kind of sparse, so I found that adding some additional 'limbs' to them really fills 'em out. They also had 1/4" foam core board 1/2 off...so i bought several sheets for making gift bag walls as well as other projects.
Ooooh my 'big' Hobby Lobby purchase was an Orchid Dollhouse! I used my 40% off coupon and got it for $18. I have decided that I could very easily see my mother opening her dream quilt shop in a cozy little cottage rather than a store front. So that's what I'm gonna do. This project has been in the works since probably August, but I will finally get down to business on it after my craft show in November. That will give me November, December and the early part of January to complete it for her.
Today I picked up a couple of paper punches...one an inch size leaf, (I'm thinking of trying to punch shrink plastic to make miniature dishes with!) I also grabbed an 1/2" oak leaf and a butterfly trio punch. I found some gorgeous thin ohmbre ribbon in the Martha Stewart collection at Michael's. ooh and some great fall color tiny no-hole beads too. Tomorrow I will try and snap a few picks of my new supplies.
Tonight is Movie Night at our house...Pizza is on the way, (and a gyro for me...mmmmmm) and I picked up Inkheart with Brendan Frasier to watch. BUT after that I am back to my craft table to finish up some swaps and well make what ever else my heart desires.
