i just read through all the comments from yesterday and took down lots of notes and cool ideas for future posts…. thank you for taking the time to make suggestions and for all the kind words. i know i have said this before, but i really believe i have the sweetest group of blog readers. it's a blessing. πŸ™‚

here are a few things that i want to answer/mention right away…

*the owl on my dresser from a recent post was actually a thrift store find and a gift to my sister from a friend…. wish i could give you a link, but it's one of a kind, i guess… πŸ™‚

*the red hair dye is just home stuff… (Loreal Colour Rays). It's permanent, but it fades in a few weeks…

PaintButtonsHave a great day, Elsie

  • Thanks for answering about the owl Elsie I suspected that it might be hard to find because I’ve been trawling places trying find one since I saw yours….oh well if ever you want to sell it please email me lol

  • Glad you have a list of all your Favorite Etsy shops!!! I’m just in *LOVE* with Etsy all of a sudden…been buying these cutsie things for the past few weeks now eheheheheh πŸ˜€ Should make my own for my felt flowers πŸ™‚

  • Thanks for sharing Elsie.

    You are so sweet!!!!

    Fall is my FAVORITE season too!

  • cant wait for fall either, especially with temps at 100 today-UGH. That snack mix looks yummy- whats in there?

  • πŸ™‚ I’m with you girl! I don’t think I’ve ever been so anxious for Fall! It’s been *so* stinking hot this year. Love the eye candy! πŸ™‚

  • Wow, thank you so much for the Etsy favorite list! So much fun to look at.

  • Im so ready for fall! And what do ya know, I have been loving creating in my living room too lately. Just haven’t been feeling the studio.Love the button pitcher. Too Cute!

  • I’m soooo ready for fall too. And lately I’ve been scrapbooking and such in our living room even though i just set up my craft space in the laundry room. it’s a mess right now because of it! i just don’t like being back there by myself sometimes!

  • My living room always rotates as my scrap room too. I have my own office but for some reason like once a month I drag everything out to the living room and make a mess in there! Maybe it’s just good to create somewhere else.

    Hey, I don’t know if you have ever heard of the band Justice, they are a French Electro/House group. Anyway, they have this awesome video to a song called Dance. It’s totally 80’s T-Shirt Graphic Art goodness. I have the video and their myspace link posted on my blog if you want to check it out! They rock. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks for sharing. My favorite season is fall. I guess I love the crunch of the leaves :]] My favorite scrapbooking supplies are buttons, so its always cool to see random pictures with buttons involved :]] Thanks so much!

  • What a fabulous way to display your buttons! Mine are in an ugly ole box! I’m going to go find be a pretty glass jar!!!

  • I desperately need to know two things.

    1) Where do you and all your funky friends find all the buttons? surely you don’t buy them at scrapbooking stores, they cost a fortune for just a few there. I’m coveting buttons these days.

    2) Where in Toronto can I find your Betty line? I’m dying to do a layout with it. I know I can order online but I want to see it all and pick it out….unless you still offer it in a kit?

  • YAY! eLsIE loves fall! (^_^) And your stuff is too cute. Im gonna check out your etsy faves, now. woo hoo!

  • Oh, Elsie! That trail mix looks absolutely yum-o! I too like to change my homemade trail mixes themed on seasons or holidays. Thanks for sharing!

  • girl, i love putting nuts and berries and all that jazz together. some faves of mine you may want to try. cranberries, pumpkin seeds, almonds, flax seeds, dried apples, pinapple, papaya, mango, sunflower seeds. i LOVE seeing that stuff come together!

  • I love the picture of the buttons!!! I am going to have to do that! I love buttons I find myself going to garage sales just to find buttons… it is amazing what people get rid of πŸ™‚ SO anyway i have tons of them so I think I am going to go get a pitcher from the store and throw my many containers of buttons in it! Thanks! YOU ROCK!

  • It’s most likely been suggested already but I want to see the room you create in!


  • I was so excited to receive my prints from your Etsy shop today in my mailbox. They absolutely rock my socks!!!

  • I’ve been dying to ask you where you buy your buttons from cos I know you buy them wholesale. also when is the zoe line coming out cos i’ve seen previews and i can’t wait. |<3 A|

  • You must have some great thrift stores out there in MO because I can never find fun stuff in the ones around here. (I live in southern CA) Cute stuff!!

  • I am really looking forward to the fall too!!! though it’s a little said tese days because I miss living up North during the fall.

  • TFS, Elsie! I went to Etsy and bought that skull compact from buttonarcade either for me or for a gift (i have tons of compacts, but it’s soo cute that i might keep it for myself!!).

  • Hey girly! Just thinking of you. You’re looking adorable with the red — one of few people that could pull that off! πŸ˜‰ Hugs –

  • Fall what is that I live in Florida its all the same here. Anyways thanks for sharing all your cool stuff. By the way, your paint tray reminds me of mustard, tomatos, and peanut butter. Dont ask why but thats what I saw. Love ya keep it real.

  • i already commented once before but i was taking a gander at your flickr and i must know where you got the pink dress with polka dots…i am searching, with no luck, for something like it and can’t seem to find what I’m looking for.

    your help is *greatly* appreciated πŸ™‚


  • Hi! I would like to see joy in form of colors and scrap, to see love in form of photos of wanted people, to see bladders colored in party form, ahhhh!!!!!! Everything that you makes is with love! I want to see scraps, because it does not receive works from some girls and places to it people to see?!!!! Good weekend, kisses! Tati from Brazil

  • I am so hungry for your “mix” now… but at the same time it is so picture worthy you hate to eat it!! πŸ™‚ Lovin’ your blog!!

  • I’d love to see your very first completed scrapbook layout. Do you think your scrappy style has changed since you first started scrapping?

    I’d also have to agree that I’d love to see more info on your photo processing methods. Your colors are always edgy-looking.

  • Snacks look yummy!!! So do the pictures. I used to think I was the only one who glopped paint on top of paint on top of paint . . . πŸ™‚

  • I just love your blog. I am going to have to check out that owl. I just did a post about owls on my blog. I won’t go into details here but owls are very special to me.

    I just love your style and I am so inspired now to get scrapping. I have added you to my favorites on my blog because I will be back to visit here. πŸ™‚

  • I know I’m kinda late, but I really like when you put eye candy, your photos are so beautiful, either from things around the house and people. Love it.

  • Elsie, I love your blog, but I have to say you are costing me a ton of money on Itunes! We have the same taste in music and I keep buying what you suggest. I never knew the sixpence group’s name, yet I know all those songs! Keep the music recommendations coming.

  • argh! your stuff is ah-mazing i TRY to do something kinda similar but it never looks 1/2 as good! i am in LOVE with your buttons! oh boy! i am soo in love! and i love your photos! i get soo inspired by it! my friends hate posing for photos— ur lucky!

  • I am new to this blog, I must admit it ranks up there among one of the most unique blog ideas I have ever seen.
