Don't you just love the color red? I know I have a special fondness for this luscious hue. It just makes me smile and not every color can do that for me. It makes my heart jump a little, the corners of my mouth start to curl up and well, my creative side just wants a much closer look. These little crab apples are showing off beautifully for me this fall and I couldn't pass them up, I had to share their prettiness with you. So, what does the photo say to you? I hope it says "happy!"

Leslie Mullin did with the Pictionary game board, made a unique purse out of it. How could I have let that one go, right? I would have been kicking my own butt for days for that mistake :) Hope this is getting your creativity going. If nothing else, making you want to clean out the kids room and send me some cool stuff LOL!

I had the pleasure of attending my first Live, Love, Junk Retreat this past weekend and have to tell you it was great fun. Not only was the retreat well run with lots of added shopping and dining but it also ran in conjunction with the 7th Annual Junk Bonanza in Shakopee Minnesota. For those of you who know me, you are probably shaking your head wondering what has gotten into me. Well, since discovering mixed media, I am now always looking for a bit of the past to repurpose into my art. So, I went with a mission to find unique small ephemera that I could add to my art and let me tell you, I was not disappointed in the least. There were 150 booths filled with anything you could imagine and some you didn't even know you were looking for. The suitcase above is filled with a collection of my treasures, I can't wait to see what inspiration they bring!
