Off to Ashland, Oregon....

I am in frantic packing mode as I get ready for Art in Ashland this weekend. I leave tomorrow morning and will be hanging with some fabulous gals through next Wednesday. I am super excited!! I made this little journal above embellishing and binding a card from PaPaYa! Anahata is the gracious host of this fabulous event and we will be visiting the PaPaYa! studio and warehouse. Can you say heaven?! I hope to add bits of this and that along my journey.
I know that I left you all hanging with the wonderfully written estate sale ad in the last post. I met up with my new "estate sale buddy" Jennifer Murphy. We stood out in the rain on a stormy Thursday morning. I must say that the ad was very creatively written and certainly made an average sale sound fantastic! I came out with some treasures and so did Jennifer, so we were happy. I think I have a new partner in crime:)

This little girls dress will reside in Chloe's room this winter. The blue velvet is gorgeous!
Sign ups for the Sweet and Sinister Blog will be on hold while I am gone.
Catch ya in a week!!
