Being Oblivious

Did you ever wish you could just put a basket on your head and ignore everything and everyone around you?

I don't know who this little girl is, but she was a cutie-pie I ran into at the Indianapolis Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival this past weekend.  She was zooming around, could not be bothered to stop for a picture or even a hello.  I have often felt like doing the exact same thing!

It seems like every March, I post the same thing after the first weekend - Gaye and I took a road trip to Indianapolis, saw friends, bought a few things, stopped at the antique mall on the way home, yada yada yada.  Same thing this year again, but it is always a fun early spring day trip for both of us.  It's not so much about the show, it's about the day together.

I got this wonderful heart stencil from Coffee Break Design:
Had to have this rubber stamp of the little girl with a shotgun (or BB gun?).  Don't ask me why.  I just needed it!
We had been there only about ten minutes when my name was called as a door prize winner.  I wasn't familiar with the vendor where I could spend my $10 gift certificate, but I did manage to find a blank calendar stamp and a "pull here" stamp.  Thank you DRS Designs.
The main thing on my shopping list was some of Ranger's Colorwash Sprays.  I was hesitant.  They say the new spray bottles spray much better than the old ones.  The old ones spit more than they spray.  I took a chance and got a few bottles.  Time will tell.  I'm looking forward to playing with them.

I didn't take many pictures at all during the course of the day.  However, at the antique mall I did take a picture of this old desk.  The drawers were all at an angle.  Imagine that.  Very neatly done... but why?  I guess it would be easier when sitting at the desk to have the things in the drawer angled towards you.  Or maybe it was made by a drunken carpenter.  Who lives on a hillside.
Oh, I did take a picture of a book Gaye was working on and brought to show me.  Love the whimsical covers!  She comes up with the coolest things!
See you next year, Indianapolis.... Same time, same place.

Love that very odd desk! Glad you all had fun. (Naturally!) Guess you missed all the tornadic activity.

PS - I covet that heart stencil. How cool it is!
