I am so lucky to have had a few wonderful fellow Artists sending me juicy bits of ART in the mail over the past few weeks. Knowing that you would love to see these fabulous tidbits, I have taken a few photos this morning.2014-03-12-SANY1409 2014-03-12--SANY1410 2014-03-12--SANY1413 2014-03-12--SANY1414 2014-03-12-SANY1415   This morning, thanks to my ‘happy mail’, I was inspired to create a couple NEW digital stamps for you to use in your art journals and scrap-booking adventures.

I found many wondrous goodies at the annual sewing expo in Washington Friday …. even some juicy CHERRY PIE fabric!2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7134

My good friend Satira was a trooper and drove us 3 hours in each direction to get us to the expo.  I am sure she slept in yesterday to make up for the lost energy after a long day. What a trooper!

Being a mixed media Artist and having never been to a sewing expo, I was not quite sure what to expect and if it would be worth the long trek. It was!  Not all booths grabbed my fancy, but the ones that did…. Oh My!

Some good ones that caught my eye were:

I would now LOVE to figure out how to get my art into embroidery programs like Loralie has done. What a great idea!

If I had had the extra money and no country borders to cross going home, I could have easily spent a few hundred $ there and hired a ‘bag boy’…lol.

We may have laughed earlier upon seeing the foot massage chairs at 9:30 in the am, but boy did they ever feel nice at 5:30pm! 2014-02-28-sewing-expo-IMG_2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7137  2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7143
