Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a nice weekend. We were all kinda sicky here, so lots of laying around feeling icky. Not so much fun when the weather is perfect outside! Kinda felt like this guy:( I did enjoy watching a bit of the USA Gymnastics Olympic trials. Did anyone else catch it?
I also got my packet for Art in Ashland in August. It's really getting close. I am very excited! Who else is signed up?

I also have some new stuff in my etsy shop to share with you. This kit has been in my head for a long time. I love kits and have always wanted to do one-of-a-kind kits full of vintage treasures so that no two would be alike. Because of that they are fairly slow and time-consuming to put together, but when it all comes together it's well worth it. Let me know what you think. There are 15 of these cardstock weight original vintage tabbed pages from a home decor binder. They are in a wonderful shade of peachy pink and the graphics are amazing. I thought each of these could be a different "chapter" in your home book. They are about color schemes, furniture arrangement, floors, lighting, windows, accessories, kitchen, etc. This would make a wonderful housewarming gift or a home inspiration book.
Then I put the color palette together and coordinated 10 sheets of new 12x12" scrapbook papers that are heavyweight.
Finally, I got out my favorite vintage French flashcards that I had been hoarding for just the right project. Well, here it is! These are all home-related words and would look perfect for this book. So there you have it. The whole kit is here. Wow, what a fun project!
Also added one tin of 12 wonderful vintage trims and millinery. Enjoy!

Dang! All the lovely things from your etsy shop went so quickly! Almost makes me wish that I hadn't had to go to Orlando this week. They looked like lots of fun to play with.
