|I found a globe lamp at an auction a few weeks ago and the suspenders are inspiring me to do some more embroidery.|

My sister is working on some project that includes cutting on a zillion heads from magazines so I'm still working on my collages and I've figured out a way to transport them in my purse. One envelope for magazine cut outs and one for photographs. I could put this all in one envelope but the photographs are intended for another project and I don't want to mix them up. Then I only need a bottle of glue. Once the week rolls around I doodle on the page and add my notes. I've colored it in a bit more since this but you get the idea.

|One of my friends is a little over a month away from having her baby girl complete with a very long name picked out that I will soon have to learn to spell (smile). Surprisingly I ended up being one of the few ladies who didn't buy anything pink as a gift. I knew I wanted to get overalls but I had to wait for those suckers to go on sale. I did a little freehand doodle stitching on some overalls that happen to match a pair I wear around the house so I already had a little practice. I also found a newborn shirt with a panda on it and cherry red shirt to match a chewbeads necklace for the mom to be. If you haven't heard of chew beads they are made of non-toxic material and they are okay to chew by the baby and the claps will open if 5lbs of weight is put on it. |
The box was easy to make since I wasn't spending money on baby bag. Simply cover a box with wallpaper (I've had this paper for years but it is still being made). The design already had the squares on it and I made some black & white copies of vintage pictures and a red rose from my stash. Outline the pictures and paint gold liquid acyclic on the sides, then draw more boxes on the side. Cost 60 cents since I just had to pay for the copies but you could you cut pictures out of a magazine you already own.

We finished everything off with dinner at a diner. I really wanted to get a picture of the guy making these amazing balloon sculptures (mermaids,penguins, dogs) and he didn't smile the whole time and he was doing it for free to promote his business. Lot's of kids on a Sunday and the waitstaff singing happy birthday, a song every hour with a old fashion dance and twisting straws into young ladies hair (and one gentleman got a straw crown taped to his head) for fun.
