Poor neglected blog

tap...tap...tap...anyone out there? It's been a while. I have all the normal excuses, I've been busy, my dh has been on a business trip for 7 weeks of the past 9 and my kids are home for the summer. Blah, Blah, Blah! It's been crazy! But I'm sure we've all had busy summers, right?

I'm taking a Jenni Bowlin class at Big Picture Scrapbooking. It's about reusing and reinventing. Jenni is the queen of just that and I love her! She lives here in TN and I've taken quite a few classes from her at our lss. I've even been to a yard sale at her house and she was nice enough to let us inside when my daughter needed to go to the bathroom. Anyway- last weekend, My friend Joanna and I, loaded up our 5 kids (We received a lot of crazy looks and sympathetic nods for having our kids with us. One man looked at me and said, "Lord have mercy." I say Amen to that.) and went to the Nashville Flea Market. And who should I run into- Jenni!
Normally I wouldn't have bought someone else's pictures. But after seeing some of the things Jenni has done, I bought an entire bundle of some. They are in the coolest folio's. And some of the paper work that came in the bundle is from the late 1920's-early 1930's. I'm going to make some collages with them.
I also got some cool forks with great patina to make some picture holders, (yea, I already broke both of them trying to bend the tines. I need more to try again) a floral frog and an enamelware tray. There was so much great stuff there! So much! I can't wait to go back next month, when our kids are back in school!
