A MIxed Bag Tonight!

Good Day Y'all!

Tonight I have a melange of things to share with you.  So I better get with it because....guess what....I'm packing!  I actually have the suit case opened and am throwing stuff in! My favorite Sponge Bob Underoos, my jeans and several pairs of shorts and t-shirts!  Beachwear at it's finest....uhhhhh....well, beachwear anyway!   Also, I have my Xtra-Large craft case open and throwing stuff in it as well!  Oh I wish I could take a Uhaul and just throw my whole craft room in it!  But this time I have planned out what I'm taking!  YEP!  I planned it!....Kinda!  I barely have room for my trusty top hat that always accompanies me on any journey!

Enough about me and my trip, as I said above, I have a mixed bag of things to share with you tonight...

I wanted to show you some incredibly lovely and fabulous things I received this week!  I hope just by looking at them you can find some cool inspiration to maybe start a project of your own....

First up tonight...My beautiful pal and lovely volunteer, Scherry Wells crafted this amazing Halloween treat for me and filled it with lovely candies!  I think she did an awesome job and LOVE that she thought about it enough to place a top hat on it!  So cool... Here is her wonderful gift....

Next up, is an incredible gift I received from the renown folk artist, Kay Pierce!  I am fortunate enough to live in the same state as Kay... the same area of Texas and have been blessed with several of her amazing works of art.  I just received this amazing gift today and I'm in love!  I'm going to use it when I go trick-or-treating... To light the way!


You have heard me talk about right?  Well they have the most incredible clasps in that really ROCK MY WORLD!  I mean ROCK IT!  So rocked that I gave my friend Jennings644 a few to try out and she was pleased as punch!  here's her sweet video!

Last, I wanted to share with you all that tomorrow Maiko Miwa and  I will be featured on the Graphic 45 blog.  Graphic 45 is celebrating World Card Making Day on Saturday!  Please join us tomorrow on G45's blog!   Why on earth they picked me for World Card Making Day is beyond me, but I'm honored and I try real hard!  LOL!

Here's a sneak peek!

and this one....hehhehe (evil laughs!)

Last, you know when I go on vacation I like to play, "A few of my favorite things give-a-way game" right?  Well if not, stay tuned.... it's fun and well worth visiting...I think!  LOL!  Yahoooo! another give-a-way coming....You could be a winner !!!!! Visit my blog while I'm away and you could win the give-a-way today!!  Corny huh?  Oh Well! :)

Thanks gang for coming to visit and I hope that you found something you could take away and use from my post today.  See that rhymes too!  Thank you Scherry and Kay for making my day so much brighter.  Your art fills my heart with joy and inspiration!

Have an awesome night and I'll see you tomorrow on G45's blog as well as on the road with some road trip blogging!
