Today's the day to shop small businesses in your community. Supporting local family owned businesses is a great way to boost the local economy. So, today I will be shopping and supporting some of my favorites:
ETC at 2820 E University, FOUND and Design Lab at Robson & Main, The Antique Mall in downtown Mesa and will grab a bite to eat at Mango's, also in downtown Mesa.
And then it's back home to finish up these little guys. My vision is to paint them white, sprinkle them with Diamond Dust, and make little banners to hang in their little hands that say "joy". Instead of top hats, I may give them little glittered crows. Then I will position them onto these little coasters that my friend Karen gave me, along with a little adorned bottle brush tree and wrapped package. Of course then I will need to decide if they need to be elevated onto a glittered candlestick holder, paper mache box, or what-not. Why you ask? Because as my friend Earleen says, "More is More".
Maybe it will go quicker than I think, as I have a helper.
Make the most of your weekend!
