happy monday! (is that an oxymoron??)
i am sick as a DOG today! hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday afternoon. WAHH! i don’t do sick well – just don’t have time! **sigh**
SO wanna know what can make you feel REALLY old (other than your 40th bday staring you in the face) – i was browsing etsy as i tend to do and i was looking for some vintage stuff. what pops up in my search…??? these:
both of which were alive, kickin’ and even TRENDY at my house during my childhood.
as if that wasn’t bad enough i see these:
which were the dishes i had in my first apartment
and then these….
which were in use at my ex-husband’s parents’ home while we were dating in high school.
ACK!!!!!!!!!!!!! so does that mean i am vintage???? somehow i thought of vintage as being older…at least older then ME!!!!
ahhh who else remembers the good old days of harvest gold and avocado green…???
i have a great quickie little project for this morning – it has been AGES since i participated in a challenge over at SCS – shameful! so what better way to get bck into the swing of things than to do today’s Clean & Simple challenge? it was a sketch based on someone’s card and here is what i came up with:
my colors are taken from the gorgeous new Basic Grey Kioshi collection – susana has the 6×6 pads – SO PERFECT for getting one of each KWIM?? i cut the border from a kioshi piece with a new ek success punch. i used two Prima Tiny Tots flowers and then stamped the Lockhart Plaid Butterfly with Versamark and embossed him with milled lavendar distress embossing powder (33% off in my store right no). finished it off with a few of my exclusive pezabling glittering acrylic squares.
i am off to gargle with salt water. LOTS of posting for tomorrow – i have TIOT AND the artful INKables blog hop!
