Inspiration and Mail Love

September 3, 2008

Tonight after work, I dropped by JoAnn's to pick up a few things for several projects that I have going and of course I had to go to the magazine isle. I just love having time to peruse this isle picking up these little wonders just filled with creativity, leafing through each beautiful 4 color page, to find which one will make it into my cart. Of course tonight, I couldn't take the time that I would have like to so I carefully and quickly scanned the isle for some favorites and find these...

These two just jumped into my cart. A wonderful little present that I gave myself! Each magazine is chalked full of ideas, articles and inspiration. This edition of Somerset Studio had an article about Postmark LA and how to throw your own art party. I just had to read that first!

(Sorry about the pictures, we are in the middle of a rain storm that has lasted all day and I couldn't wait to take the picture!)

Then when I got home, I had a little Mail Love waiting for me...

This sweet apron, pearls, pin, earrings and calling card from Karla. I won her August monthly giveaway. If you haven't seen her blog, you've got to go visit her! It is filled with beautiful artwork, lovely vintage finds, pictures of her gorgeous house, Sugar Wings and her cute Dorkies! I can't wait to finally meet her this year at Silver Bella. Thank you Karla for all these wonderful goodies. I know I will put them to good use!
