Hat Pins anyone?

So while I'm making the Wedding Album for my nephew I think, need to add a hat pin or two to this baby, really jazz it up. Besides, goes with the theme.  I'll make them out of Corsage Pins. Three weeks and two trips to the local craft store and I'm in business. Why stop there, I think?  I'll make a couple more and add them to my stash so I'll have a few when I need them.  I know, I can go a little overboard.
So two MORE trips to the craft store and a purchase from an online vendor (couldn't find hat pin blanks locally) and now I'm REALLY overboard!  My timeline for what to get done this week to add to the ETSY shop went out the window!   But I've got some gorgeous hat pins up on the ETSY sight for sale.  Check the rest of them out and look for some new UCF Photo trays to go up on the sight very soon.

It's good to be home!

Yes, I know it's been forever since I've blogged.  Harder to get back in the swing of things than I thought! We were in Colmar, Germany in this picture, really quaint and interesting, but not enough time to explore!  Anyway, you know I couldn't go away and NOT find a scrapbook store.  My husband thinks I have radar!

    We were in Strasbourg, France just taking in the sights and low and behold, there it was. We had limited time so I didn't even get to see the second floor of the store, but I did manage to pick up some things and take a few photos.  Really upset that I didn't get a shot of the front of the store.  What was I thinking?

Picked up a paper-mache rooster ( I collect them) and alligator ( my daughter-in-law is a Gator) and some paper to finish them with. Can't wait to start on them, but it'l be a while.  Being away has put me behind in everything, so they'll have to be put on the back burner for now (along with about a dozen other projects that I have the "stuff" for and just haven't got around to doing!  More Pix tomorrow, I've got more catching up to do.

 Remember: To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. What are you waiting for? Go create!
