Default Stash of the day.......

.....stationary shop OSBOURNES still had a sale on...........went in for the white ribbon roses saw them last time but did'nt get them for some reason........thought they would make great wedding hats......leave them alone or put a brim on them,dress up with some flowers( 1 per pack....) ,thought i'd have another mooch..mojo gone but i can still 'imagine' the stuff to make......theres life in the ole doll yet...bought some black plastic thin strips that would look nice around the edges of drawer and cupboard doors,mirrors etc............found some paper that makes pictures look like canvas...MINNIE is an artist and i have downloaded some 'unfinished paintings'...so the easils will have to come out..its thick paper ,think you have to fiddle with the printer to get it to wrk properly..?...theres a job for OH!.....whoohoo...the vision is there.........got some cheap watercolour paintrushes from 1 shop...great for emulsion ,clean well but if i varnish with them they go in the bin...!

Those black strips are great I use them and the gold ones all the time.

Where is your mojo Sue - has it run off with your muse for a holiday in the sun? There must be a place where muses and mojo run to every once in a while. My muse gallivants like billyo and I do miss her.

Wow, wow & even more wow. What a fab stash, you are a bargain hunter par excellence. I do hope your mojo comes back rapidly.....with your mega hoard that should entice it back!
Jo, you have given me a vision in my head now...of muses & mojos cavorting on the beach.....must be a project there for someone.....
