Went to a workshop yesterday

And it was fab! Mary Mulari came to Erica's, and she is a wonderful speaker. She is also amazingly creative and talented, and I love love love the projects she creates. She has some super fun totes and aprons, and lots of embroidery designs. Here is a link to a video she has posted on her website. Check it out if you get a chance.

In other news, I have been creating and scrapping like a mad woman, and having boatloads of fun. I just got a new embroidery/sewing machine, and can't wait to get busy and use it! I have to finish a few projects first, becasue I am afraid that once I start, I won't be able to stop. Hope Mr. MoJo stays around my house for a little longer..................... :)

Hope you are all having a creative and wonderful day- Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
