Hello...

We're in the heart of summer and having so much fun even though Tom keeps pointing out to me each night that all we seem to do is run, run, run. It's been very busy around our house (as I'm sure it is around yours)...I'm still busy learning all sorts of things at my new "real" job (it's so nice to be out of the TV business!), trying to visit my father as much as possible during his somewhat bumpy recovery after surgery, running around with my "big" sis and her two girls who are in town for the whole summer, celebrating Shelby's 19th birthday!, and, of course, hitting every flea market, estate sale and antique shop buying, buying, buying and making, making, making for my first set-up at Junk Bonanza coming up in a few months. I'm having a good streak of creative-ness making all sorts of altered vintage book journals and paper bag/fabric journals like this one...
I have to hide all these books from my sister (whom I mentioned above) so that she doesn't steal all my inventory before I even get a chance to sell it!

Our weather has been beautiful...a little on the humid side lately, but as I always say: "there's nothing like a Minnesota summer"...and I probably say that because anything feels good after 9 months of winter! Hope you're enjoying your summer too! (Hi Jessica...my neglected blog bff)

The summer months tend to be busy. I've hardly had a quiet moment!
