Fun stuff

I was going to do a whole blog post on my great mail days last week, but it's been overcast and now I've put away the things I got. I did a trade with Susan for some german scrap and papers, I had some old art slides I bought, and didn't know what to use them for so we did a swap. I also bought a lot of really cool stuff from skyblupink (a great online craft store), bought a kitchen sink pack, maps, a $12 surprise pack, some mixed minis Tim Holtz grungeboard, and a wisdom of the ages, (for the links, you'll have to scroll down on the pages to find the items, but you'll find them, you can always push ctrl and F on your keyboard and type in what you're looking for on PC's) you can't buy anything from that store and be disappointed, they have lots of cool stuff and great prices. And then I also received my prize from the Pinkstar Creations giveaway, that one I got a picture of:
There's some recipe cards at the top there, a keychain ring, some corkboard pieces, some chipboard tags (giant size), a bag of buttons, some sticky gems, and a bag of (I'm guessing?) Prima flowers. A very nice surprise gift.
And I'm finally getting started on the handmade gift I gave away in the One World One Heart Giveaway from Feb, I'm sorry to say life and other things got in the way. I bought myself some Modge Podge the other day specifically for this product, I'd read how lots of people would use it and loved it, but no one warned me about the smell, OK it's not a really bad smell, but you do notice it. Anyway, I started by painting a 12x12 canvas board black (it's really the only darker color I have, I need some paint):
Then I used the modge podge to layer pages from an old math book (it's just what I grabbed), now I'm not really sure what else I'm doing, but I'm not working this weekend (SHH...some people have problems with that, see here), so I figure I really need to work on this, and hopefully get it in the mail on Monday, anyone have any suggestions?

The best Mod Podge projects start with layered book pages! So fun!
