Mail Call.

Some exciting things arrived in the mail this week.
I ordered some things from my favorite online fabric shop
Hoot Couture
It always comes wrapped in a pretty ribbon...... like a present to myself.
The green and white is destined for a walkaway dress for summer vacationing.

I also ordered some pretty neat retro patterns from

The patterns all arrived exactly as indicated in the etsy shop pages.
Each came with it's own little inventory sheet and business card.

I ordered this one for the pants. I hope to make some Capri's for the vacation.

I pretty much fell in love with this little top. I think the pink collared view is my favorite.

This will be nice for walks on the beach with a little blouse and sunhat.
I'll have to make big pockets for shell collecting.

and because I haven't posted nail art in ages. Here is my current nail design. Dragonflies on purple sparkles. They're short almond shaped gel nails. Great for renovating the kitchen.
(Yup I'm still pluggin away in there too.)

Here is a pretty springtime night sky. It looked like it was on fire.

I had gotten my work on another
Polymer Cafe Magazine

I LOVE this project!
The nest is made of little wood looking clay twigs. There are LOADS of step by step pictures and many fabulous artists in this issue (as usual).
It's pretty much my favorite magazine!
