Rainy Days and Mondays
And now... a craft of another kind.... kraft paper... or is it craft paper? Doesn't matter. I'm addicted to the stuff, and I'm convinced that every stamp and sticker out there will look better on brown paper. Even the cheap stuff can be turned into an amazing canvas background on which to paint after applying several layers of white gesso to both sides. Allow for drying time between coats.
Target is also a great resource for a good quality gift bag - of the brown variety. It features delightful pink ribbon handles and retails at 49 cents. And now the best news ever for envious Canadian shoppers who have had to wait until they visited the U.S. to stock up on Target goodies. By 2013, there will be several Canadian Target outlets as they have evidently purchased the leases of Zellers and Bay stores.
