Catch Me If You Can

Ooh! Things are busy around here -- and I am guessing it is a busy time for all of you.
Making, cooking, holidays, friends, family, wrapping, eating......
standing in lines?

Yup, I did it again -- stood in line at the wonderful Cavallini Sale.
I got up at
Can you believe it? At least this year it wasn't raining. My pals and I got there at about 6:45AM and the doors opened at 8AM and the wild stampede began.
Cavallini is really a wonderful local business. They supply PEETS coffee (the best!) and boxes of fresh donuts and the employees working the sale say
"thank you for coming"
(as if wild horses could keep me away).

My two bags filled with treasures. I wish I could show you what's in the bags but Santa would be mad at me if I did....
Let's just say I got a lot of Xmas shopping done and some things for myself as well.
Who needs Black Friday when you have Cavallini??

I am also picking up bits of fabric and lace for my slow stitching projects...In the meantime the little fabric piles look so pretty. And that flower needlepoint -- I got it all finished for $5!
It is so pretty...I want to cut it up and use pieces in my creations but I am still working on the concept.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the studio too......I usually refuse to do anything before Thanksgiving but since Thanksgiving is so late this year I realized I better get this party started!

I love those Flat Rate Priority Mail boxes and Padded Mailing Envelopes.
Thanks USPS! 

I picked up the art studio for my special Thanksgiving guests (you know who you are). Hung some things on the wall.....

....and yes, there will be wine and cheese......
You all are welcome to come over for a little party!

The town square near my house has a little light show going on...such a pretty spot.

Thank you to all of you who bought books! They are all sold out except for two and I really appreciate your suppose and interest in the books. And for your patience!
I've been told people had trouble commenting and the Contact Me Form wasn't working. This was not Bloggers finest moment. I'd like to switch my blog to a better platform but right now the thought is daunting. I may sell on Instagram. Loads of people do it and it seems easier, so stayed tuned.

So, now our thoughts turn to food -- and family and friends -- here in the USA.
I am thankful for all the lovely comments and support I get from the art community on social media. And I am also thankful for all the inspiration.
I hope you all enjoy the holiday.


  1. Good to see you so busy and content with life. I'm working on it. Happy Holidays.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Love all the goodies in your studio. Such creative fun!

  3. What can I say, other than I realize I'm very late visiting.

    Goodness, Pamela. You got some lovely items, at least the ones you shared with us. I'm in awe and am THRILLED your pocket books have gone over so well. I KNEW they would, even though people had trouble connecting with you. It showed how determined they were to order these as gifts.

    Have a lovely Thanksgiving and enjoy your guests. Your art studio is beautiful.

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth and happy thanksgiving to you. I appreciate the support.

  4. Many blessings for you Thanksgiving gatherings. I personally can't believe it is here already!!! One of my gratitudes has been all the lovely arty friendships I have nurtured this year - including with you. Cheers.

    1. I can’t believe it’s here already either! And I agree about gratitude for the lovely arty friendships. Thanks for being one and happy thanksgiving.

  5. I'm taking a break from social media but thank goodness for your blog so I an get a mail art fix. Bravo for leaving with two full bags at the Cavallini sale!

    I have a handful of (empty) vintage envelopes, stamped...handwriting not quite as lovely as some of the European ones you have found, but they are very cool anyway. I was wondering if you have any ideas for using them...?

    1. Hummmm....good question.....I use vintage envelopes in collages and sometimes I tuck paper ephemera into them and gift them to pals....if they are the same size you could make a pocket book out of them.....
