Haha.. I feel the same way.. I have 3 1/2 (one's a roaming swap) on the go, but I really really want to join this.

Okay I will join! I just can't resist the glitter.

I'm in!   Cheesy

I actually started a project already, when we get partners I'll see if it will fit.  If not I will be "forced" to keep it.  Wink

Great site QueenNinjaMonkey!  I will definitely be stealing a few of the pottery ideas on there.

I am hoping to go to the flea market this weekend to see if I find anything cool. I am on the hunt for a large Santa Muerte statue for our altar, we have a lil wee one right now. Next week we are headed over to Sacramento to a concert but I will hit up the 'dia de los muertos store' and see if I get any ideas!

Keep them questioners coming in!
