Since I spent the early part of last week with the head cold I didn't get my March TH tag done - yet. Then my sister came up on Thursday and we went to Paducah on Friday for a sister weekend. We saw Celtic Woman in concert. The above video is a preview of this tour - Destiny

One of the cool things about these ladies, is they all have individual careers aside from Celtic Woman.
Susan, the one in the Fuschia skirt played Elle Woods in London's West End production of Legally Blonde after originating in the role of Serena. She also has played Sandy in the West End production of Grease.

The violinist, Mairead Nesbitt, has played on original sound tracks for Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and Feet of Flames and their world tours. She has also been the featured soloist in the musical scores for Disney's Tinker Bell and Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure.

The young lady in the red skirt, Eabha Mc Mahon was the youngest member in the Original River Dance Choir - at age 15. And in 2015, headlined a sold out show in NY.

Mairead Carlin, in the peach skirt, has been a featured soloist in many Hollywood movie soundtracks - most notably, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. She has also recorded with some of the worlds leading Symphony Orchestras.

Saturday before we came home, I made a stop at Tuesday Mornings and at Hobby Lobby in Paducah. The Tuesday Mornings store there is the best I've been in and I was not disappointed this trip. They've remodeled and expanded since I was there last fall. Here's my $57 worth of shopping:

These Molding Pastes from Art-C. The box on the left has Green/ Gold/ Fuschia. The box on the right has White/ Black/ Silver.

I fell in love with the Halloween set from Tattered Angels. The Cling set is a French theme. The Christmas set is from Hero Arts

This stamp and Embossing folder set is from Sizzix. I can't wait to make Christmas card bases with this one. But I think I'm going to wait and try it with Teresa Collins' new gold stamp pad. The embossing plate on the right is from Spellbinders and is a mass of keys. Then the various tag stickers will supplement my ones from Tim Holtz.

These two stamp/ die sets from Sizzix were my favorite purchase. I found the set on the right first and knew I could make it work with other things I have then I found the head/ torso set hidden behind other things. You really have to take time to look through everything on the hooks because things at Tuesday Mornings are not in any order. This was the only set of either of these. I can not wait to play!

Then we made a quick stop at Hobby Lobby where I found a variety of Tim Holtz stuff on clearance. They were NOT in the clearance isle, but in with the regular stock. I picked up these items:

These are colors I have sitting in my shopping cart at Simon Says. While I could have used my Gift Certificate from Tim on these, buying them on clearance frees up $$ towards other items at Simon Says.

The white geli roll were just a 'coupon' purchase. 

A great weekend with my 'middle' sister. The headcold is gone and tomorrow, weather permitting, I'm back to work. I will get things updated here just as quick as I can so keep popping back. I love to know you've been peeking while I'm away.

Creative Blessings!
