I am sorting and putting away everything I brought home from my trip this week.
Yes, those are 50% off stickers.
I don't think I have ever bought anything in Paris that was 50% off. I look for jewelery that I can break up and recycle into several other projects. In most of these pieces I see charms and other items I really like and can never find in North America. So today is a fun day for me. Thinking about future and current projects while reviewing my sketches from my week away.
