I worked 3 days in a row.. very hard on this old body.. and spent yesterday cleaning house and chucking things.. very refreshing... and a little art... I have finished my pages in Nicola's book for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Sketch Book.. you won't see my thoughts page.. still have to put that in... now this is not what I started out thinking I was going to do.. but when I read this poem.. it all changed...hope she likes it....this is the first stamping I have done in what seems like forever... was so much fun...

Are you a gingerbread collector or know someone who is? cuz if you are.. you have to check out Susan from Sawdust Brushstrokes and Stitches Ebay's the auction for her Gingerbread Tea Kettle... it's adorable.. and then she has this awesome Ginger Chalkboard painted on a fan blade.. too cool....
