Almost December

Post-Turkeyday, still recovering. Spent most of today surfing, which is always dangerous because it usually leads to shopping! My yesasia shopping cart is already way too full.

iHanna has some wonderful things in her Etsy shop - wonderful collage packs, notebooks, etc. Check out her Etsy shop or her blog for more information.

More wonderful leather journals from MyHandmadeBooks on Etsy (I have 2 of hers already), and I've been sorely tempted by the suede ones from Kreativlink. But the big sale at Chronicle Books is too good to pass up - I'm getting some of the new soft-sided Moleskines.

Hard to believe that it's already almost Thanksgiving - where has the year gone? Things have been so busy between work and school activities that there's hardly been any time for art.

That being said, I did have a blast at quilt festival. I managed to spend a reasonable amount of money, and was fortunate enough to get into one of the Make It University classes. We made a collaged canvas - I further embellished mine when I got home (and I've "censored" it, just in case TPTB at blogger don't like it):
I got my wonderful Cold Charlotte doll from Kristin at Retro Cafe Art the other week - I can't decide what to do with her, because she is just so lovely by herself. Kristin is having another fabulous blog candy giveaway - check it out:

And definitely check out her shop - she has the most wonderful things!
I'll try to get a link to my Quilt Festival pictures on the blog - I'm still learning about this whole blogging thing (and you'd think that, having been in software for over 20 years, it would be easy for me!).
