How Cool Is That Friday

I think I'm supposed to be doing some other theme for of the trade? homemade? I don't know. Frankly, I have never been organized and the likelihood that I will start now is very slim. So, at least for today, let's play "How Cool Is That."

I'll say something or add a picture and then you say "How Cool Is That." Got it? Okay.

Yesterday, I got bonanza mail. First, I got my order from WildOlive. I had already received my embroidery patterns via the modern miracle of pdf. In my next post I will talk more about the terrific patterns and what weird and dangerous things I'm doing with them. Not really dangerous but I thought if I said that you'd be more likely to check back later. Snail mail brought me the "recycle" fashion pins that everyone who is anyone is wearing these days. I also got two of WildOlive's awesome remade, recycled notebooks. I love them. She threw in some cute freebies plus look at this cut-out?

How cool is that????!!!

In addition, I received the nicest thank you note from the Mother Bear Project. They liked my bears and they invited me to make more. Don't you love the picture of the African boy holding his bear? I am so in love with this project--sharing the love, sharing the bears!

Okay, all together now: How cool is that!

Second, last night while shopping for a broom I discovered these cute packets of colour coordinated buttons. Do not ask what buttons have to do with brooms. Let's just pretend that my local WalMart is organized alphabetically with all the "b" items on one aisle. Anyway, I fell in love with a packet of blue-greens. Yes, love. All last night I wondered what I could do with them. There's not a lot of things I can think of which call for roughly 130 buttons. Then I thought "bracelet." Clearly, it was a b sort of day. This morning I made this cute bracelet that I absolutely love. The whole thing costs less than $2 and took me less than 20 minutes. It's love. Ahhhh. So the rest of you are free to fight over the Hope Diamond while I hang out with my button bracelet.

And they all said "How cool is that."

Finally, spring has arrived but good. The trees are gor-geeee---ous this year. Dang! Of course, the grass is high and the dandelions are popping up but look at my crabapple tree. Stunning!

And "how cool is that."
