Just a Little Something I Picked Up Along the Way

2

On the aforementioned Great Midwestern Road Trip, I picked up souvenirs. Okay, I bought stuff. Some call it “junk”, others call it it “treasures”. I’m going with the latter. Glorious gems all of them!

Crazy beautiful reusable plastic bag.

(From the top, clockwise) On a Michaels run in Iowa, I found a little booklet of vintage-y papers, a jewelry tool, label washi tape, silver duct tape, pretty gauze banner, fun stickers, and another Cachet art journaling book (my favorite for size and paper).

Oh, the Minneapolis junk shops! A vintage “h” from Kentucky Fried Chicken, plus labels and stickies.

There’s just something about a tin can I can’t resist!

Massive score: three cigar boxes! One even has the name “Punch” on it — Punch being a restaurant we’d gone to the night before!

Not from my trip, but quietly waiting for me when I returned: my first installment of Stencil Girl’s monthly stencil club offerering. Oh. My. Love.

And somehow, I won a piece of art from Stencil Girl’s very own Mary Beth Shaw! How lucky can one girl be?!

Apparently, very lucky: I also had a thank you note from Tracey Clem waiting for me! I have to write her a thank you note for her thank you note. Gorgeous! And that’s just the envelope!!

This is the gem-of-a-card waiting for me inside. Thank you, Tracey Clem!

This (sideways) pic is of a flower book I also picked up in Minneapolis. The flowers inside are breathtaking! I might trace around them for some pretty lines on my art journaling.

Yeah. I think so too. Gorgeous!
