Crafting As Usual

Today I pulled out the thrift store albums I got yesterday and got a Bellamy Brothers ready to go. I need more Rapid Rivets, but I can't find just the double cap rivets locally. I'm going to have to order them on Ebay I think. I had HossFly take the aquarium tubing handles off my Eagles purse and try to see why I got it all twisted, but I didn't finish doing that. I should just go get some more tubing in a larger size, so I can get the Mardi Gras beads in there like I wanted in the first place :) The Monopoly board was speaking to me,too, so I got out a razor-knife and got two purses out of it. A couple game pieces will become little charms hanging off of them after I get some holes in them and set them on bead pins and jump rings. I need to take photos of all this, and remember to put them on the computer before I start posting...maybe even write up a tutorial for the purses.
Oh,and my slipcovers came today. They're still in the packages,LOL. I was expecting more of a brick-rust red but they're a bright red-burgandy. Now I need to find something for the windows. Good thing I know how to sew...I have the equivelent of eight large windows in here. Three are 5' tall x 6' wide, and then the French doors are where another set of windows used to be before Hurricane Katrina remodeled our house and we finally built the deck we'd always talked about.

I saw these little shoes in a thrift store and had to buy them. Over at iVillage Garden Web, on the Garden Junk forum, a nice lady had some baby shoes with hen and chicks planted in them, and I knew that's what I was going to do with mine :)
