Today we went to Glitterfest....but before I get to that...when my friend Leighanne got here she brought these darling little coin purses to show me.......2 of them are staying with me.....are they not amazing??? She makes them out of repurposed felted sweaters.....I LOVE the teeth on the one and the other is sticking out his tongue....just stick it back in there to zip it up!!! Her etsy site is the tangerine pug...and I think she may put some on there....
Had a great time with Lieghanne and my sister...and got lots of inspiration!!!! saw lots of old friends and had a great lunch......
It was really hard to get pictures there of some of the booths cuz they were packed....I wanted a picture of my neighbor Lisa Loria's wonderful booth but I could barely get near it....same with most of them, it was shoulder to shoulder...
ok peeps....have a great rest of the weekend and Im gonna go glitter some stuff!!!!!
