This really is a pin. I found this little bow on the floor of the gallery last year and put it on my desk. It has been floating around the top of my desk for a whole year and even was stuck to the corner of the monitor for a while. I brought it home and hotglued a pin finding on the back of it. This little package tie is only about 1.5" diameter and is purple (although the photo doesn't show it).
The holiday party was a hit last night. There was only one accident. The lid to my crock pot landed on the concrete floor of the garage and shattered. So today, I went thrifting. Four thrift stores and do you think I could find a lid to fit? Not. I thought about ordering one (pieces and parts) but the crock pot is wearing out anyway (I use it a lot -- we like soups and stews). I think I'll drop a hint in Santa's Little Helper's ear (CarGuy).
It obviously was my day to be thrifty. Aside from the thrift stores I went to a big box craft store. When I go there, I always check out the clearance aisle. As I studying all the clearance items I found SHIVA PAINTSTICKS! This is a real find! I've been wanting to try some and the price was right. I also found these three fabrics 1 green, 2 blue, 3 wine for $3.00 a yard. But wait! That's not all! I also got this really kewl little quilting notion called a Colorscope with a 40% off coupon that I can't wait to fool around with. A new toy! Even though I was shopping I was also thrifting.
