Mod Podge

Recently I have become very interested (okay alittle obsessed) with Pinterest. I found this and I thought it would be fun to make for my nieces for I go to the website and I can't find it.

So I need your help. How do you think it is made? Tickets turned over a small bowl then mod podged on the outside?????? I would love some ffedback or if anyone knows of the real link. Thanks!

I had heard a couple of comments only a month ago about Pinterest....well I signed up and now I am hooked. I have a link on the side of my BLOG and I would love to have you follow me and I will do the same. This is something I came across during my pins! Ready set go PIN!!!!

Coming Soon!

I took hundreds of photographs today....which means I will have hundreds to crop and re-size. But, I am happy to do so. They will slowly make there way into my etsy shop and then hopefully they will leave my house in a brown cardboard box and reach your doorstep. If you see anything that intrigues you feel free to leave a comment here.
I couldn't resist the black and white button :)

Who needs a Kewpie Doll?

A little ROAD trip

Last month I ran into someone at a local Flea Market that gave me a flyer and after a brief conversation she told me that she would be selling in Brazil, Indiana during the Rockville Covered Bridge Festival. I hadn't been to the Festival in years because it is CRAZY there. Lines and lines of cars, the streets become parking lots. I just like things a little less crowded than that. My husband is from Brazil and his sister still lives in the area and I mentioned it to her and she was game. Of course my Mom is up for almost anything so she got up at 6am and was at my house by 7am with a bag breakfast for us and some snacks. You can't take a road trip without snacks. We picked Sister in Law (Pam) up (middle) and off we go. We found the woman who didn't bring the cabinet cards... :( because it had rained the day before. Which I understand but I have done outdoor art fairs for years we all have those big Plastic Containers that do a pretty good job...oh well. Next time.

I did score some pretty good stuff. Lots of little storybook dolls, a blow form Santa that plugs in, a great doll head, rubber trucks, little bowling trophies and lots more. We even hit the thrift stores in town. But, we only scratched the surface. I think we only made 4 stops and we were miles away from the covered bridges where all the REAL action was.
Can you tell I took our picture.....That is my Mom, then Pam in the middle and well me. I did add some blush to us since it was an early morning. I will be working to list these goodies to my etsy site as soon as everything else is added which is an overwhelming amount.

Here's the DISH: Some new items waiting to be listed on etsy. I have started a facebook page featuring what I list on etsy and what projects and events I will be doing. Like jenny elkins studio when you get the chance on FACEBOOK. I will be listing as much as I can each day check out my etsy shop.

You know the saying that goes something like "don't judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes" . That is how I am feeling of late. So many things going on here in my house. The husband is struggling with his health in turn he is struggling with things at work. We are looking for a big change in our lifestyle this year. I have a great amount of faith that everything will work out, it usually does.

SO I will end with sometimes it feels like I am juggling cats. Something I have heard. Until next time!
