Thursday, October 21


Greetings, dear reader!

Well, the month of October has nearly come and gone, and that means it's time for the Paula's Palace of AltAred Art's "You Inspire Me" Award!

This month, I was inspired by the images and musings of:

Viv Out On A Whim!

Viv's blog is a wonderfully creative place where every visitor feels like they have been invited in to sit for a chat and a cup of coffee!

From her wonderfully whimsical handmade creations:

I just LOVE these punkin girls! So sweet and silly!

And her hand-felted monsters just slay me! LOL! (You MUST go to her blog and see all of them...HYSTERICAL!)

From her swaps, challenges and stunning skill at seemingly EVERYTHING she puts her hand to...

to her amazing collection of vintage-esque decorations and All Things Halloween:

Viv is the kind of creative soul that just makes me excited to know her! A toast to you, Queen Viv, for being such an inspiration to me and to all of us in blogdom...

Join me in congratulating Viv by leaving a comment here and/or paying her blog a visit! You'll be glad you did!

More soon,
Paula Clare

OH MY GOSH! Just look at Viv's crowns! She is absolutely one crafting machine extraordinaire! I'm giggling that the last photo is of Viv with food. She has a love affair with her WW food which just kills me! A very favorite person awarding another very favorite person. This makes my day!
I'm so sorry I must have missed your e-mail. ( What is your diner name? (Still keeping me in suspense? You didn't mention it in your comment, too funny!) Well, I'm off to visit Viv! Have a great weekend! E
