Good morning...

Well.. ended up running in to the city for the day yesterday.. the flu got shared so got to hang out with Chaya while her mom slept .. we had a fun day.. lots of reading.. and playing.. she's still not feeling 100% so she had a good nap..My girlfriend and I  had a great visit at lunch the other day.. then hit a used book shop and a thrift shop.. got a couple of new books and yes!!! more wooden bowls.. lol also some uncut patterns to make more of that paper..
So didn't get much accomplished at home except finally getting a back up done.. while I was waiting for it to finish.. had some time to play.. I sooo love that pattern paper background.. it's so soft and the texture is amazing..
I've been playing with altoid tins and matchboxes abit too.. I belong to a new monthly Matchbox swap group.. there are some beautiful boxes for the first swap..here's mine... hope she likes it..
Thank last but not least.. finished 1 for the Zentangle challenge this week..kinda weird not filling in the whole piece but like it anyways..lol
Hope everyone has a loverly day.. hope to finish off a couple of painted things this afternoon..
Thanks for stopping by and looking...

    Somehow I got a lot of little stars in my lap while looking at my matchbox, I was smiling to myself thinking YOU did that on purpose didn't you???.
