Today's Featured Guest

Today's featured artist is Jessica from Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping! I met Jessica through The Brown Paper Bag Swap in June. Jessica is so talented and makes a variety of Paper Bag Scrapbooks, tags, altered tins and other gorgeous things plus she loves to swap!!

This is a Whimsy Jar that Jessica made for a swap she was in. She filled it with odds and ends of goodies. I wanted to show the picture of the empty jar though so you could see the painting detail she did on the side of the jar.
Isn't it beautiful!
This is one of her Paper Bag Scrapbooks. Isn't this just so cute!!
Here is the opened up book.
It reminds me of when I was in Kindergarten, "See Dick run. See Jane run."

I couldn't just pick one altered tin. Aren't these gorgeous!
I think this is my favorite altered tin. I love the colors and the lace!
I think you will all be impressed with Jessica's talent. Be sure and check out Jessica's blog and be sure and look at her older posts too. Somewhere she has these cool tags made out of coin rolls. I know you'll be impressed!!

I now many of you checked out Melinda's blog the other day. Isn't she wonderful!! I love her work and she is such a nice person!

Another Susan has joined the party so be sure and stop by and visit her at Sweetpea Sue's Cottage. Also Jean, Melinda and Diane (I'm sorry if I missed anybody else) added a Truth or Dare story to their blogs. Make sure you read them if you want something to make you smile today.

Have you discovered the MBT shoes craze yet? It's [B][URL=]discount mbt shoes[/URL][/B] high time you did. If you're tired of dealing with uncomfortable footwear, then this is the [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] answer your poor, tired feet need to feel refreshed and keep you energized [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] and ready to go. If you're on your feet all day, or simply require more support than traditional footwear can provide, it's time to finally [U]mbt sandals[/U] treat your feet right with MBT shoes.

Through a high-tech sole constructed of many layers, MBT shoes correct flat, rigid [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] surfaces into more natural plains. They become uneven, and mimic the walking behaviors of [B]mbt shoes review[/B] our ancestors, who had no shoes. There's a definite [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] benefit to walking barefoot, and MBT provides its wearers with this fantastic opportunity to [U]buy mbt shoes[/U] return to their roots and treat their foot problems naturally.

When we walk with correct posture, we [U][B]MBT shoes[/U][/B] both appear and actually feel stronger, healthier and more [B][URL=]MBT shoes[/URL][/B] vibrant and energetic. When MBT shoes such as the Men's Chapa, Women's Baridi or Men's Unono Clog (among many other selections) are [U]mbt discount shoes[/U] worn regularly, you'll notice your entire body actually feels better not just while walking, but even just standing. Running? Absolutely! Try the [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] Women's Sport or Men's Safiri.

When you wear an MBT shoe, the sensation is not [U]mbt sandals[/U] unlike the feeling of balancing a ball under your foot. There is an input response factor here that provides [B]mbt shoes review[/B] greater ease for the body's musculature to properly react. Once you make contact with [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] the ground, you instigate a rolling movement that starts in the heel. This heel movement [B]mbt discount shoes[/B] creates an initial stretch of your calf muscles. Then, when the body is straightened, it [U]mbt sneakers[/U] balances on the mid-foot area and pulls through to the back step. Thus, a rotation is set in motion, and it [B]MBT[/B] continues throughout the body. When properly aligned, as [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] occurs when wearing MBT shoes, there is enhanced posture [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] and a naturally less strained gait.
