The way I write for my blog is to start with a theme, make a list, and then let my mind wander a bit. Today’s topic needs to have a tie in with my Asian Album so let’s get started -
Ideas for Thursday’s post
(Guess I’m hungry so taking a break to get some lunch – vegetarian sushi.

Asian Paper Umbrellas – looks dark outside so it might rain. Glad I brought my umbrella. It’s purple and I got it in NYC when I saw the Fantasticks two years ago. The world’s longest running musical. Love the show, love the umbrella. And considering that I ALWAYS lose umbrellas it’s a miracle that I still own it! BTW still looking for the two rubber stamps I recently lost.

Chinese noodles – anyone watch Worst Cooks in America? Last Sunday they had to make Chinese noodles and it was hysterical. Did I mention that I am trying to diet and that is why I have food on the mind?

Is Vietnam considered Asian? My nails look awful and I need to have a manicure. Forget about rings. I am wearing TH black soot, Versafine black ink, Glossy accents and a bit of hot glue on my fingers. Can you tell that I am a scrapper?

OK Edwin, you win. My post is about nothing. But, I do have something to share. Last year I purchased this awesome Asian Dress Form Kit from Telina. Similar, but not identical to the Dress Form Calendar designed by the wonderfully talented Bona at livelovescrap on YouTube. I just finished it, albeit 2 months late, but am still thrilled with the results.
There are 6 dress forms in the kit and I added a tiny calendar on each. You can download the calendar FREE at Crafty Secrets.
The papers were so pretty that there was no need for lots of embellishments.
Look Ma, no hands! I painted the bottom of each dress form black and tied the ring with tulle and black seam binding.Telina is a doll and is offering my followers a special deal. I don't know how to link to her blog but it's http://telinaspapermania.blogspot.com/. Tell her I sent you.
I have been quietly sending out little gift packages to some of my followers who have been actively leaving comments. Not a bribe, but if you'd like a RAK, leave a comment and perhaps YOU will be next on my list.
