A sneak peek

I almost didn't post anything today. I didn't even check my computer until a few minutes ago. I was so lifted by the lovely comments I received on my previous post, I decided to show a sneak peek of something I worked on last night.

I had intended to get in my craft room and play today, but that didn't happen. I went shopping for groceries and supplies in case we get snow like they are predicting. I stocked up on matches for my stick incense, which I use to light my well stocked supply of candles, along with enough food for Bleubeard to last through the winter (two 20 lb bags), cat litter, and a few treats because he may have to be bribed to stay inside for several days. I also bought groceries for myself, and stopped by my local thrift store/charity shop just to look around for inspiration. Of course, I couldn't leave empty handed, so picked up two packages of half used buttons. One card looked rather old.

After that, I was exhausted. Yesterday my friend Kathy from Hutchinson came to visit. I took my camera when we went shopping, but didn't take a single shot. When I decided to take a photo or two today, my camera wouldn't turn on, even after I put in new batteries. Oh the joys of electronics. So that leads me to this small sneak peek, which I ended up scanning in order to have something to show.


Paint, collage fodder, and a tiny bit of rubber stamping were combined with sewing to make this page. Sorry. Without a camera, there really isn't much to see. Have a lovely rest of the weekend and thanks to everyone for being so very supportive. You have NO idea how very, very much this means to me.

Looks intriguing, Elizabeth...I love the word THUS...I wonder why no one really uses it anymore.

I really like red with greys and doesn't stitching give everything a lift?
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.
It is so necessary to get ready for the snow; it will probably come. When they predict snow here it often does not appear, I expect it's because we are in a very shallow valley.
Have fun with the rest of the weekend!

Glad you stocked up on goodies, especially Bleubeard's requirements, so you should be able to survive for a wee while if it does snow. It has been snowing most of the day here but we have a wind as well so it's drifting and feels lots colder than it actually is! I went to a thrift shop today too! Oooh, wait till you see what I found... you will be cabbage green!
Love what you have been playing with, the colours are gorgeous!

I think your camera knows you want to replace it and had become curmudgeonly

sell something and get yourself a Really Good Cannon/Nikon

my D90 is as important to me as my brushes.

You definitely are off to a good start on your collage.

I actually was able to fix my camera by going online and checking out the troubleshooting links. I was amazed at how many people were willing to share their information. I would have bet a million dollars I wouldn't find the answer there but it worked.

Good luck on the snow. We've got a lot right now and I am loving it.

Love. Love it.
I hate my camera too. It hates me back.
Xx,
