Some eye candy to start your weekend off right !

Happy Saturday everyone!
I have been a busy bee buying up scrappy goodness and
just wanted to share with you all some of my spoils!

Just a quick sample of some of the things I have found this week and fell in love with.
The best thing of all,
remember that mini I talked about the other day!?
Well ALL of these items will be featured in it!
I will have some photos up for a couple of sneaky peeks as promised so be sure to check back!

Don't forget to stop by Creative Soup and check things out!
We are in full swing over there and always welcome new members!
And the sneaks I will post shortly are for their February class
that is FREE to take so make sure you check it out.
I have already seen some of the other DT members books for this class and they are

Now on to an amazing little something that my dearest Hubby picked up for me the other day!
I have a fascination with vintage style bust and dress forms!
As you all know we have recently moved in to our new home and I am working on getting
my studio space organized and best of all decorated!

How gorgeous is it !?
She is the first of many that I will be on the hunt for to decorate
the E-cave with...
I cant wait until it is completed!

I hope you all have an amazingly scrappy Saturday!

Starbucks altered item goodness!

Happy 2011!

What better way to start off the new year than with not only 
a repurposed item
but a GREEN repurposed item!

Here is my altered Starbucks Coffee sleeve turned into a gift card holder!

This is a new technique that I am trying out.
I had a lot of fun playing around with this and also
love that it is a green project! I drink copious amounts of coffee and have been collecting the sleeves for weeks now so that I can do a few fun things with them and I have tons of them!
I used all scrap paper and things that I had in my stash! I didn't have to go out and buy anything at all (well except for the coffee and gift card)
to make this with and I love how it came out!
What better way to give someone a Starbucks gift card than with a handmade themed gift card holder, all while being green!

How cute is it !?
That is that I leave you with today my friends!
Remember, if you decide to make one of these "green" beauties
make sure you share a link to pics of it so we can all see!
