song lyrics, the answer is yes. Rock on with your bad self.) :D
I never understood the word "notion" when applied to these cute little guys - do you? But since I asked the title question, I'll tell you where I got most of these notions (hint: it has nothing to do with the 1974 hit "Rock the Boat"). :D
Yesterday I ended my blog post by saying that my sister, nieces and I were going to watch a horse paint - well, we did - and it was AWESOME!
Back in November of last year, I had met Buggs' owner Carol at our FDL Visual Arts member show reception (Carol and Buggs have since joined the group!). My friend Suze had purchased one of Buggs' paintings and raved about this notion that a horse could paint. When I heard that, I knew that I had devised a neat Christmas gift for my nieces. I purchased two of Buggs' pendants and with them, included a "gift certificate" for a trip to see Buggs create his masterpieces in person. We were finally able to sync our busy schedules and yesterday was the culmination of that gift. It was a truly magical experience and Carol was so gracious to open her home to us. It's a day that we'll treasure always, for many reasons.
I love buttons, especially on cards. Actually, I love any notion on cards - snaps, clips, hooks, you name it. Those mid-century ones are especially rad. And the bonus? Check out the awesome vintage price tags I get to add to my collection! :D
And yes, I've made some art with these carded beauties! They're SO fun to work with! :D
