I was out estate saleing mid-week. Something I never do, but I think I'm still on a high from my $8 bag event last weekend. I also got my partner for Jenny's Vintage Kitchen Swap and it's none other than one of my very fave artists, Lauren Mumford! Woohoo:) We immediately began emailing each other back and forth giddy with excitement about what to keep our eye out for each other. I did find a few goodies for Lauren and of course came away with something for myself as well. I've been brainstorming how I'm going to keep everything straight at ArtFest. I am going to have quite a bit of art supplies with me, a bag with all my trades and a bag for the trades I will recieve. So I picked up this cute little "purse" with felt butterflies on it thinking that it could carry some supplies. I love it...and love that it only cost me $1!! I came home and had a package from none other than Pam Garrison with a vintage ledger book in it to use for my class with her at ArtFest called What Lies Inside. Ok, now I'm really getting excited!!

P.S. I posted this comment earlier, then noticed that my pix were way too small so I enlarged them, and this is the updated link :)
