Junk Bonanza

I did it! I went to the Junk Bonanza this weekend with my junk- loving friend, Meg. It was so much fun! It was a little overwhelming to see the wares of 100 different junk club vendors, but so exciting. Jason watched J and E and I took Kate. Meg and I met at 9 am. I did bring my camera along intending to take pictures to post for all of you to see what you missed, but I didn't even think to pull it out (sorry, Cathy)! I was pretty good and only spent the cash I was carrying with me. I did come away with so many new ideas to add to my already long "to make" list! I did purchase some letters cut from license plates to make a sign to hang in Jonas' room. I'll post that project on Rag Top Originals. Oh, I almost forgot to say that I met Artsymama herself! We talked for a little while. It was great! I almost had her autograph my junk. :-)

"One man's junk is another man's treasure!" Looks like there were TONS of treasures at that place! Can't wait to see what your magic fingers create out of what you got!

Beth, I saw a tote bag that was made like the quilts that you have on Ragtop originals. Someone was carrying it, so I didn't get a pic, but it was bigger than a purse, but smaller than luggage...if that helps...:)
