The Junk Market show that took place every Sept just outside of Minneapolis does not exist anymore since the two owners have parted ways. Before you get too sad, The Junk Bonanza show has taken it's place (you can also find it on our left sidebar) in the same time slot in Sept and in a very similar location. The Junk Market name does exist as a blog talking about reusing/re-purposing old junk but again there is no specific show that the name is attached to (that I am aware of). I admit I am not a fan of the JM blog format since you have to click on each tiny picture to see if it is something you are interested in, but it does seem to be popular for people that want to share what they have done recycling and reusing what has been cast off. If you are one of those people and you have the time to click on each picture, then you should check it out. It does have some great ideas.
NOTE: If anyone lives in the Minneapolis/St Paul area has any information about Junk Market or Junk Bonanza please leave a comment for our readers. Thanks!
Let's pick up where we left off...in the big state of Texas.

the mother of all cupcakes...
this is just a piece of chipboard with a 4 x 6 photo adhered to one side and paper on the other.

This is the back side of the same chipboard page. You can see the barbs that are at each end of the elastic. I utilized the two that have come through the eyelet by adding a tag onto the barbs.
The tag spins upward to reveal the armadillo purse (that none of us bought).

love this page with all the layers you see at one time
|NOTE: lest you run out to Ft Worth to find Simple Things please note they have closed this most beautiful and inspirational location and have been running the business out of a warehouse in Benbrook while they create a NEW, bigger location. I read on their blog that it will be open after the first of the year. Keeping our fingers crossed!|
A little word booklet given to us by our Texas sisters. If you didn't know, Deb and I have sisters that live down the street from each other (for 25 yrs) and that's how we met.
See you then for the last of the Gypsy journal.
