A day off...

I have the day off today.. had a lovely trip into the city yesterday.. it hit 15c which was gorgeous and perfect for a road trip.. good  music, sunshine.. what more could you ask for..... unfortunately today it's 6c so far and now it's raining..lol good day to stay in and hopefully get something accomplished. I did hit a Goodwill store.. too early for all the new goodies from spring cleaning but a couple of nice things.. love the wooden butterfly and this jug is just too cute..and the label will wash off...and there are the pie plates and kettle from the weekend.. all those teapots in the background are half done.. would probably be a good thing to finish today...lol
Inspiration Earth is having a giveaway for one of her fabulous clipboards when she reaches 100 sales on Etsy... so check out her Simply Smitten shop and maybe you will be the lucky one.. hurry though.. she's at 99 sales already!!!!
I redid the Friendship coffee sign...and added some homespun...
I am a week behind on the challenge over at I am the Diva but here is my Mooka for last week... I love this tangle.. and will be using it alot I think...never mind the colors.. was trying out some of my new water color pencils.. lol
I am excited though.. I finally started my first pages in my journal for the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbooks... can't show you yet though.. soon I hope...
well off to get something done.. don't forget to check out Inspiration Earth...
Have a great day...
