-+**Lil' Scrappers**+-

It's 11:25 AM in the Valley and it is 77 degrees! Yes, we Arizonians are doing the 'Happy Dance' today! I have a window opened up for some fresh air (which hasn't happened since April) and we can breathe comfortably!! My girls, (kitties - Spirit and Tillie) are crowding in at the fresh air and we are once again reminded that our better seasons - along with their wonderful weather - are on the way back to us! Ahhhhh - how do you spell RELIEF!!!!!!

This 'wonderful weather day' has also put me in the mood to work endlessly in my art room! I have been putting together some fun little pieces, made from my recycled stash of treasured paper scraps, fabrics, tid bits, etc., and I am calling these pieces my 'Lil Scrappers!' What do you think? I don't like to throw things away and I realized that this was the perfect project for my treasures!! They aren't completely finished yet - but they are on their way to fruition!!

I grew up in Phoenix & remember 126 degrees... actually how do you forget 126??? Funny thing is I went up to Alaska to marry my husband & encountered -40 for 6 solid weeks.. HOWever... I always say you can put more clothes on ... there's only so much you can take off! WA is nicely in the middle!

Stay Cool! ~*~

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog! So nice to hear from you. The temps are creeping back up and by mid week this next week i see 99 forecasted. Aaah well.....I think your gonna love this months project as it involves recycling!

Love your lil' scrappers! Everything you make is so cute. You have a knack for making things 'not look recycled' . If you know what i mean. :) deb
