This Week's Inspirations
Hello Peeps! Oooh, the weather in the Northern hemisphere is getting colder. I got up Sat. AM to open the curtains to- a SNOW squall!!! :( . Thankfully it passed very quickly but it was quite cold and blustery all day. I know I have to accept that tis the season...
I have a tag to share for the Simon Monday Challenge and Simon Wednesday Challenge (theme is "Thanks/Thanksgiving" for both), and Try It On Tuesday (thankful):
Products: manila tag (Ranger); burgundy card stock; Tim Holtz- Worn Wallpaper, Paper Dolls, Small Talk Occasions Stickers, Alpha Tiles, Thinlits dies 660222; Distress ink- Vintage Photo; Distress Oxide ink- Frayed Burlap, Archival ink- Maroon; 3 dots stamp(unknown); fabric tape - Recollections; buttons- Gary Burlin & Co.; natural twine.
For T Stands For Tuesday I will share another breakfast I had during our last stay in Cape May:
Blueberry pancakes, and coffee of course at the Ocean View restaurant;) Yes, they were delicious! And it just came to me- do any of you have pancakes for your dinner? I remember as a kid we would have pancakes for DINNER rather than breakfast every other week!
I have this journal page to share at Art Journal Journey (theme is Vintage or Modern) hosted by Erika this month; Paint Party Friday; AND Simply Neutrals hosted by Wen! Wen is celebrating Simply Neutrals 50th by offering a gorgeous giveaway so do check it out, and leave her some love. Of course it would be great if you'd link up with something neutral too!
Although I am working between at least three art journals, I am currently in love with my newest which is the Dina Wakley Media Journal!!! And I can't get enough of Tim Holtz Snarky Small talk Stickers either! Other products on this page- Tim Holtz Paper Dolls, layering stencil- Linen; Distress Vintage Photo ink; Archival Jet Black ink; Distress spray- Fossilized Amber; gauze scrap; white gesso; black ink.
Hard to believe Thanksgiving Day is next Thursday already! Anyone have any special plans? I'm paring down the menu, keeping it simple, and will only have my Mom and our son and his GF. Hubby and I have tickets for a show Wed. night (which I wasn't so happy about considering all the cooking and cleaning, etc. I'd be doing from Mon. thru Thurs.) but by keeping the meal quite simple it's do-able.
Well, that's it from me for now. Will be around to visit. Happy week!
