Utah, here I come....

I'm off to Utah in the morning for four fun-filled days of art with some of my favorite gals at ArtNest!! My little scrapbook is ready, with all sorts of odds and ends all sewn together to tuck in bits and pieces from the trip. These ladies are ready to be traded off in a mass art "swap". They are mini-books like the one above filled with vintage paper. Complete with bags embellished with spring finery. A couple of gifts for the amazing duo of Candice and Julie, our "mother birds" at the nest.
Piles of goodies to sell at the art sale.
Toodles~ I'll see you all back here in a week!!
