So I have to tell you guys this story. I meant to tell it a few weeks ago and then got sidetracked cranking out cards. We closed the family cabin 2 weekends ago, and as I was packing up to go to the cabin, my Mom called and said ..."Hey, bring your camera, ok?" I asked why she wanted it and she said, "Because there is this mushroom that's really cool". I said, "Mom, why do you want a photo of a mushroom?". She says, "Well I thought you might want it for your blog". I said, "Mom, why would I want to put a photo of a mushroom on my blog, it's a cardmaker's blog?!" She said "Just bring the camera, it's really cool". So I get to the cabin, and check out the freakin mushroom...it is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen in my life! It looks like it's been spritzed with orange GLIMMER MIST! WTH?!!! DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT KIND OF A MUSHROOM THIS IS?! It was growing next to the house...Mom picked it up and moved it into an old log to make it look a little more picturesque! So my Mom goes for a walk & my sister and I are discussing why I'd want to put a mushroom photo on my blog, and she says, "Well take some pictures of it next to some cards and it will make sense then." So here you have it, mushrooms and crafts. I made these little boxes that weekend at the cabin for my Mom's bridge club...they hold a deck of playing cards. The boxes are such a steal, from Oriental trading: $4.95 for 12 of them! I covered them in different shabby papers and stamped crowns on them from the Crafty Secrets "Birdnotes" set. The image is from Crafty's "Wacky and Wonderful" booklet.
So if anyone has any info on this mushroom, please email me! Have you ever seen a mushroom like this?!!! Happy Sunday! L.
