I was surfing through some manufacturer blogs today scouting out more "wish list" items from CHA W and found this awesome PINK Craft Mat from Tattered Angels !
It is HUGE too.... 2' X 3'. I can hardly wait to get one of these for my very own!! It will look great on my craft table and be well used and loved too.
And the best part is that some of the proceeds from each sale go to Breast Cancer Research. How awesome is that !! If you spot these for sale anywhere PLEASE let me know where.
Happy Lazy Sunday Afternoon Everyone !

So, what all this means is that I had some time on my hands and decided to give my blog a MUCH NEEDED BLOG FACE LIFT. After searching high and low for the just the right look, I found the perfect place to get some cool background art that I abolutely loved....
I found it at House of 3 - the cool new digital scrapbook site by Heidi Swapp, Rhonna Farrer and Janet Hopkins. Not only have these three ladies put together some amazing blog candy, they are going to have digital kits, cool projects, WALL ART, tutorials and an Inspiration spot. I can hardly wait to see all this as the roll it out over the next few weeks.You can check it out here: http://www.houseof3.com/.
Let's just say I was so inspired after I found wonderful "blog face lift" worthy designs in their Blog Couture section that it was all I could do to contain myself from purchasing and downloading them all !! Truly, if you are a blogger YOU GOTTA check out their new site and see for yourself.
And the best part is that their tutorial section had directions even the "digitally,technically impaired" like myself could follow along and create the beauty you see surrounding yourself now on my blog!
Woohooo....I wish getting a "face lift" for myself was this easy !
Leave me a comment and let me know how you like the "new face" of my blog.
BTW -I am in no way associated with these talented ladies other than a big admirer of their work, including this latest endeavor of House of 3.

Some of my absolute favorite companies came out with some items I have got to get my hands on soon ! Besides the cool new stuff from Queen & Company I posted before, hands down my favorite of all was Maya Road !
Maya Road totally ROCKS once again ! I have such wonderful visions of what I can create with these new items:.
First off, the textures of leather and velvet on their new FLOWER BLOOMS just beg to be touched and is bound to add that extra special oooomph to my projects - all I can think when I see these is the word "LUSCIOUS !"
These totally new Vintage style PEARL PINS are definitely a must have ! And they even come in green leaves too......so hard too choose so I must have BOTH !!
and there are lots of new FUN SHAPED SHEERS - theses little owls are so dang cute ! And will come home to roost on my Rice OWLS mini book I am working on right now.... HOOT loves YOU !!! HOOT, HOOT !
I am just dying to get my hot little designer hands on some of their new really CLEVER LAYERED CHIPBOARD ALBUMS like this one....
There are many other wonderful things to share but DH is kinda of expecting me to get dinner on the table. Will post more another time. Good day and happy scrapping to you all !
