a little peek a boo!

Sometimes you know, you just get struck with a little bit of inspiration! Thats what happened to me this weekend. I found a new flickr friend.. Judibird, and she makes the most awesome little animals, but the black cats inparticular, I fell in love with. Then my sweet friend Jenny (be cheery) makes the absolute sweetest little clothespin dolls! I had been trying to make a clothes pin doll for a few days and they just werent coming out cute.. like, I wouldnt even consider showing them to you! Anyways, so I was obsessing about judibirds cats and jennys dolls and then next thing I know, I had to make a black cat clothespin doll! And when he was finished he needed a friend and I had to make him a little pumpkin head pal! I have more ideas swimming around in my head now too! but I have a bear order to work on ... so the other "friends" will have to wait!
Speaking of friends, Yesterday I needed to go to lockport for something and on the way I thought Id head to Buffalo Stamps. Then I thought, Oh! I should call Natalea and see if she can meet me at Tim Hortons .. and Jenny too! and they were both free so I got to spend a couple hours with the girls! Jenny brought a few of her clothes pins doll, which is part of why I went home obsessing about making something!

While we were together, we started planning our trip to Ohio for the Country Living Fair! Yay! we're going. Now.. I'm obsessing about that ...

Yes.. there is always something sweet to obsess about!! like a rootbeer float.. yup.. gotta go now.. hubbys making them now!
