Clothing Show Finds
We went to the annual Clothing Show this weekend and even though i am supposed to be on a strict budget, i of course walked away with a few new treasures like this adorable apron for $3 (and it's reversible!) and these cute deer earrings (see them below?) by local artist Paper Snake - the head goes on one ear and the bum goes on the other. I'm not sure what the rest of you think of it, but i thought it was an adorable idea, but i can understand if you think it's morbib!
I was also really excited about the barkcloth piece i got and this red plastic wallet. I sure don't need any more wallets but what drew me to this one is the 2 little change purses inside - one i can use for tokens - and the plastic window part for my metrocard and/or I.D.
The best part of going to such a big shopping extravaganza is being able to see other people's creations and supporting them as well as seeing something and going 'hmmmmm...i can make X with that.' I love being inspired at places and times i least expect it.
And, now that i have made some changes in my work life (cut down on my work schedule a bit) i am able to give back to me again, (it's been months since i had energy to be really crafty) and my endless pile of craft projects may be yet again worked through and conquered!
