My Thoughts for today...

Do you ever feel like you have soo much to share and don't know where to start?? Then you just become so overwhelmed and don't do anything??
That's me right now.

I have so many ideas right now its making my head spin...

At least one good thing is.....its Friday!

Marbled Art

                              I just ordered some Marbled Paper that had
                             been previously out of stock! Yippee!

I ordered the Turquoise, Apricot & Raspberry combo

Pirouette Marbled Paper - Turquoise, Apricot & Raspberry



I will probably frame it like this:



Or I can do something groovy like this:

For the crafty people:

And also for anyone who wants to attempt it (like me in the future).
I have researched Marbled Paper Art and this is the best way to do it.

This kit is the best

Boku-Undo Suminagashi Marbling Kit

The  frugalfamilyfunblog.com shows how they used it




Pretty neat huh??

Are you into the Marble look?

Missoni -house of madness!

If you were like me then you have had September 13th circled and the word "Missoni" written on it for awhile now. Well I met my mother in law up there at 10:00am for a little early birthday shopping. I was in total disbelief when I walked in and saw a bunch of bare shelves and racks. Well thank goodness I decided to hang around 2 women that had 3 buggies FULL of Missoni brand stuff, because when they started going through everything and eliminating everything guess who they handed the stuff to??? MOI! Yay!

Here is what I got

Wellie's (I LOVE that word haha!)

Happy Wednesday!
