... but I forgot the Exacto Blades!

As seems to consistently happen on Saturday mornings, instead of art-ing, I have spent mine chauffeuring male children thither & yon. One stop took me to the parking lot in front of Michaels, and I need Exacto blades to continue my stencil-cutting romp, along with a few 'parts' for my latest piece. I had already turned down a trip there with My Lovely Mother, because I'm not feeling 100%. But then my youngest male child just HAD to be delivered to a neighboring store. Sigh. Why don't I just take my driver's license OUT of my wallet and leave all possibilities for spending (debit cards, cash) at HOME?!!!! Many of you already know I have an addiction to small china birds. Now all of you know. I think this one flew in from Bali. Oh I am in love!
Ribbons galore, stencil paint & foamie stamp for my current piece-in-process. Paper coasters with lemons (delish!). The silk leaf was laying on the ground outside - I'm sure I can use it. These ribbons - just really reacting to this color palette! Look here and here. Primarily supplies for the piece I'm currently working on, me-for-me, from a dream, but also deeply and entirely inspired by this (scroll down to the piece called Style Rococo). The 'party' stamp -- I bought strictly for the small harlequin pattern. Look at those mosaic squares -- they're stickers! No grout, no dust, no mess! I have ordered this heart stamp from 2 different on-line stores, both of which came back to me with credits saying they were sold out and not planning to carry the item anymore. Michael's had it today, and I had a 40% off coupon from My Lovely Mother ... it was meant. As for the frog -- well, I LOVE frogs (real ones, not cartoon-style), and I hadn't seen this little fellow before. New acrylic stamp sets, 2 for 1! Wowza. I've picked this up, then put it back, FIVE TIMES. Today I said pffft, it's going home. I want to convert it to a gypsy wagon. Hi, V -- didn't think I forgot the foot wars, did ya? See how my Prague-esque slippers glint in the sun? Neener! My Lovely Mother is pretty much single-handedly responsible for keeping my feet stylishly shod. What a woman!

... did I mention I forgot the Exacto blades?
