Off to Columbus

I'm   leaving  today  for  an  overnight  trip to  the  Columbus  wholesale  cash  and  carry  sale  that  I  told you  about  here,  and  again  my  first  stop  will  be  here--


The  wholesale  show  is  tomorrow,  and  then  after  that  we're  taking  a side  trip  over to  Pittsburgh  to  go  here--


Sorry,  this is the only  image  that I  could  come  up  with--trying  to  be  a  little  creative.  I  want  to look  for  small  storage  units  that  will  be  more  efficient  for  my  art  room  (better take  some  measurements  before  I  leave).  So  as  you  can  see--I'm  going  to have  some  fun  in  the  next  24  hours!

I  don't  have  any  art  to  show  you  right  now  because  I've  been  busy  working  on  a  project  that  I'm  very excited  about.  I'll show  it  to you  all  next  week.  But  for  now--here's  a  little  sneak  peak--

Love Love the sneak peek. Can't wait for next weeks unvailing. I'm jealous of the art shopping trip. Sometimes I have as much fun shopping for supplies as I do using them.

I absolutely love IKEA...and DICK BLICK....and eat a cream puff for me! My Mom made them yrs ago. I will send you a link you might like for frames...I hope your car is big enough to haul all that you find!!! Have fun and a safe trip...IKEA used to have all these square wide wood frames with a 3x3 opening for 2.50....YOU would come up with something fantabulous for them!!! Oh...the things you will find and I can imagine your imagination going crazy with ideas....we'll be anxious to see what!!
