This morning I got up early to venture to Iowa City for my last big farmer's market of the year. I took along Flat Stanley (or Flat Aaron as I called him, since he came from my nephew Aaron) for the adventure.
It was the perfect cool morning for driving with the sun room open and tunes blaring ... and I got to watch a gorgeous sunrise on my trip.
After the market (where I picked-up sweet corn, apples, and freshly baked goodies), I stopped at the Michael's store in Coralville, which always seems to have different things than I find at the Cedar Rapids store.
Today's exciting find was a package of 60 pages of American Craft Papers designed by Maggie Holmes for $5.00 ... so of course I had to come home and cut into them.
Also from the SplitCoast Stampers Inspiration Challenge ... Christmas Tree Shops. This Patterned Patchwork Quilt Set inspired me to use the quilt-like grid from the paper packaging that showed the different papers that were inside (see it behind the camera) ... it was just too pretty to throw away.
