Happy Thursday! Today is the third Thursday of the month so it is "Hello Thursday" - the day way ProvoCraft announces new Cricut cartridges. I'll have more info about these for tomorrow but I wanted to share something that I thought would give you a smile to start the day.
Wednesday I took my Dad to the dentist in Doylestown - a bit far from where he lives now but you know how hard it is to change once you are used to a certain dental practice. It turns out that this office is located directly across the street from the Mercer Museum. This was one of my favorite places to visit as a child and a frequent school field trip destination. I could go on and on to tell you about the amazing collections of Henry Chapman Mercer. Instead I'll give you this link to the Mercer and Fonthill Castle Museums. Please click over to the site to see the incredible concrete structures Mercer engineered to hold his extensive collection of the tools and everyday items of American life.
For old times sake, I wandered over to the gift shop for a quick look around while Dad had his checkup. I love to visit museum gift shops and often find interesting items there. I won't show you all of the things I discovered that I "had to have" (some are for gifts!), however, I thought this little chick pincushion from felted wool would be perfect for Easter week. If you take a close look you will see that the "wheels" are two thread spools and the chick is actually a pincushion.
The chick even came with three "starter pins" for a tail!
I imagine someone will send me a message to ask about the paper in the background. You can see it more clearly in this photo with a slightly blurry chick. I belong to the Taylored Expressions "Key Ingredients" subscription club and get a monthly box of cardmaking goodies. These papers were part of the March Kit and are from the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose - Gertie collection. There is a special blog for inspiration showing the kits in use called The Key Ingredients Blog
As a Cricut Circle member I have had a bit of a "sneak peek" at the new cartridges on Wednesday and I think that many of them will be very popular.
