Part III and (I Promise) the Final Post Today

Wanna see what I bought at the convention????
A couple of packages of Ornate Plates and the Swivel Clasps from the T!m Holtz Idea-ology collection . . .

Glimmer Mists, the new distress Stickles, a couple of Paint Dabbers, and archival ink refill . . .

The new Grunge Paper. This is what Wendy was using to make those flowers in my first post today . . .

This was a gift from Pearl over at Stampers Anonymous. It's a package of plain grungeboard. Thank you again Pearl! . . .

Bought ONE stamp - this chandelier stamp from T!m's collection . . .

Picked up a package of these Salvage Stickers from the T!m Holtz collection . . .

a postcard of Frida Kahlo and Diego . . .

some mini corked bottles and some clips . . .


HA! You thought that was all of the T!m Holtz stuff I bought?! Surely you JEST! LOL!

Oh yeah, I picked up the new Foliage, a pack of Corners, the Trinket Pins, the little Stencils, some Word Keys, Ball Chain and Connectors, oooooooooh, and the new Mini Safety Pins and really mini Mini paperclips!!

You have GOT to click on the photo below to see these. They're all vintage looking and everything! Oh yeah, and I picked up some of the Hitch Fasteners and the Mini Fasteners


I forgot to show you the atcs I got back during the trade. The two on the left were made and given to me by Linda (Stampmaiden), the 3rd one from the left is from the "Honorable Mention" winner, and the one on the right is from a friend, Mary . . .

After the convention, Linda Bucci (the Linda I brought to the show for the 1st time) invited me back to her home for dinner. Well, I don't know if I can really say she "invited" me. I DID sort of ask Bob (her husband) if he would bbq some steaks for us again *hee hee*. Well, he did, and dinner was delicious. Thanks again Bob!

Look at the gorgeous orchids growing in Bob and Linda's backyard . . .


This is Marley - Bob and Linda's *baby*. . .

Marley posing for me! . . .

Bob giving me a demo in wire-wrapping. Thanks Bob! . . .


Well, that's it for today folks. I sure hope I don't have to "catch up" like THIS again! That was a lot of writing for one day - THREE BLOG POSTS! Phewwww!

Have a wonderful week ahead!

WOW! is just about all I can say. Where did you carry all that fun stuff cause it didn't look like you were struggling with your bags! LOL! Love all your goodies and I know there are still more to see. Gotta go see what else you got! Love that chandelier stamp, btw. Great choice. OOOh, and Linda's orchids are gorgeous! I don't think I've ever seen such lush looking orchids from someone's home before. She's got a green thumb.
