I have been thrift store shopping and dreaming and reading this week. Needless to say, no projects have been finished but this is a vital part of the creative process, is it not?
I have discovered some lovely books at the library, the "Pretty Little" series by Lark Books. I have checked out Pretty Little Pincushions (again).
I also have Pretty Little Presents and Pretty Little Purses & Pouches and still others have been placed on request. I read these books and study their pictures with a ticklish feeling in my brain as I am inspired to create variations and new things. I have decided that what puts the tickle in "Thrifty Tickle" is the need to create, the delight in a new idea. Sometimes (er, quite frequently) when I come up with an idea for something whether it's updating a tired calendar or replacing the cinnamon in cinnamon rolls with basil and lemon, I laugh out loud. I really do.
Time to link up! Grab a button from the sidebar and tell all your friends! This link party is still in its infancy, let's make it great. I can't wait to see what you've redone or repurposed!
