...i say, "tantalizing"; you say, "obnoxious"...

you know how on the fancy scrapbooking blogs, the designers will say, "i'm working on FABULOUS new things...but i can't show them to you"...
and you just wanna SMACK THEM?!
well, it turns out
when you've spent a whole mess of time & excitement on projects

during the delay between the deadline & the event
not to show anyone what you have done!!!
which essplains why
i don't condone it

and i'm embarrassed to do it


i hasten to add that these are all glimpses of different items; lest you think i have completed my masterwork, entitled, "explosion at the flower factory"! :) something UNAMBIGUOUS that i can tell you right now is:

has some verrrrrrrrrrry nice kits and

has a very cool challenge that starts...TOMORROW! hang on a second...those two things couldn't have anything to do with each other, now could they??!

...nudge-nudge, wink-wink...

oof, and check this out: the lovely & talented danni chose *MOI* as one of her rockin' girl bloggers (thank you VERY much dahhhling, your check is in the mail!) so now i need to choose mine. i think i'm gonna pickfive from outside the card/scrap universe...b/c there's NO WAY i could narrow down to only five of the girls who post on caardvarks. as far as i can tell, ALL of them are rockin' girl bloggers!!!!! ok, so five other cool crafty types i dig are:

anahata joy katkin a collage and mixed media artist. there's art you want to look at, and there's some you want to own...i would like to climb into anahata's work. absolutely luminously glorious!

threadbared ok, if you think *I* have a weird sense of humor...well, yeah, fair enough...but these gals......! basically, they collect vintage sewing & knitting patterns, and then they make up funny little stories to go with the (often hilariously inappropriate) pictures.

yarnstorm (don't worry, you don't have to be a knitter to like it!) two friends, who live 3,000 miles apart, started a blog to keep each other apprised of their knitting lives...and i guess it just sort of mushroomed into...well...this! if you're smart & crafty & interested in'll like it.

art tea life the crafts here range from collage to jewelry to...well, she makes a little of everything, really...but the reason to read is just sheer unadulterated the BUCKETFUL!

pam garrison more from the collage/mixed media tip. a place where on a daily basis, i think, "oh my gosh--i wish *I* had made that!!!" ...but in a GOOD way!
