Special News and a Few Fun Finds

I'm so excited about some special news; I've been published!!!!
Amy Powers, a very creative crafter, contacted me after seeing my Sewing Wreath on Pinterest {thank you to whoever Pinned me}. She asked me to do a tutorial to include in her online publication. Well it is finally finished and the publication, Inspired Ideas, is awesome and so beautiful. I am just so honored to be featured among such illustrious designers such as Charlotte Lyons and Jone Hallmark, {two designers in particular that I've always admired}. I'm still pinching myself. Amy has done an amazing job of showcasing ideas and tutorials that you won't find anywhere else. Visit her site to purchase an issue. I promise that you will be inspired!

The rest of my weekend was filled with family activities. My son had another motorsports event {his competitive driving skills are gaining positive attention} and we also had a family birthday party but I was able to squeeze in one estate sale.

My favorite find was this torn card mixed in with some vintage sewing notions. I first saw the word "Barbie's" and the picture of Midge and wondered what could be on the other side.
Then I turned it over and found these short zippers that were probably used to make Barbie clothes. It is dated; 1963.

I also found an old Lotto game with wooden number pieces. I plan to use the pieces for altered art projects.
It was a busy weekend filled with exciting news and family events but a rather quiet weekend for estate sale hunting. That's okay because there are always more sales to look forward to. Please don't forget to check out the Inspired Ideas publication.
