best fan mail ever….

steal my heart…. <3. i am hanging this up in my studio!

here are some peeks at my new paper dolls.
they will be a part of my Friday morning update…
finished them at 4 am last night and i looove them! 😀

i am running to the printer's and working in the store today for a few hours. have plans for girl-friend-craft time and some of this….
i feel so inspired and it's coming at the perfect time!!
thank you for the amazing response to the new blog sponsorship opportunity. if you've e-mailed me, expect a response soon! i freaked out a little bit when i saw how many e-mails i got yesterday… in a good way. excited!!

ok! i'll show you a peek at my new kit later today… i'll give you a hint, though…. it makes me want to sell everything i own, buy a little 70s camper and drive around exploring forever. XOXO. elsie

    2. You should submit your blog to It’s the blog of the Springfield Bloggers Association, and they’re compiling a blogroll of all the bloggers in Springfield. (And we’re in need of some cuteness.)
