FARM CHICKS HERE i COME
I thought I would tell you about my Girlfriend trip that I am taking with my cousin Laura...a while ago she invited me to the "Farm Chicks" show that is held every year in Spokane Washington...I happily said yes...then she informed me that we had to buy tickets to the join this group "Come Junk With Us"...I happily said yes. Now I live way up in Saskatoon smack dab in the middle of Saskatchewan, Canada. From here I have to drive way down to Coledale Alberta to Laura's place, then way down & to the right to Spokane. Thank God for the three C's of long distance driving...Caffeine, Cruise Control & Air Conditioning. Now as a typical women will do...I got to thinking...what the heck am I gonna wear? I am not a fashionista but I do like my bits & bobs. So I looked up at my muses who sit on my studio shelf...various mice & rabbits...then the light bulb went off, I made this...
Soooo...if you my fellow bloggers are planning on attending the Farm Chick's Show...I would love to meet you...just look for the rather quirky brunette (a little on the pudgy side) with all her wee fuzzies hanging from her neck...that will be me. I made a rabbit necklace as well so I will be easy to pick out of the crowd. I am looking really forward to this trip & the chance to meet so many interesting folks. I plan on treasure hunting for bases I can place my critters on...will take lots of pics to share with you later. Till then...
Forgot to mention my Cousin Laura has a blog called "All About Pretty"...make sure you pop by to read all about her "Vintage Chicks" show that will take place in Priddis, Alberta, Canada a week after the Farm Chicks extravaganza...it will be filled with reloved, restyled vintage treasures & lovely art beautifully presented by a number of vendors. Cheerio

Oh Susan, what fun!!! Eeek, I love that necklace!!! OMG you are so clever! You will have a blast.....at least get away from the doldrums of yecky and snowy weather...unless you have had nicer weather than us!!!
Crazy times over here in snow land, I think we have a new month, "Mayvember". Gosh, I am so envious, well in a good way, happy that you get to go, yet sad that I am not coming......have lots of fun!

Just found your blog, and oh my what marvelous creations you make. Your necklace is adorable, but your little blue mouse and the one on the thread spool, just steal my heart. Hope you find time to create once again. I know it is some times hard when life gets in the way. You do amazing work!!
