Spatulas, Spatulas, Spatulas!!!

I spent Sunday making ATCs (pics to come!!) and working on my art journal.  While going through one of my collage boxes, filled with pretty little paper bits I've been saving, I found one of my favorite pieces of ephemera...ever!  I was at work one day and I knew I had to save it from being tossed aside with the rest of the recycling.  I mean really, who could resist this awesomeness?!

Aside from the lovely lady enthusiastically holding the wok and spatula, my favorite part has got to the the spatula saying, "bye-bye".  It makes me wonder where it is going.  I plan to do a whole series of ATCs and Postcards with altered versions of these images.  I can't wait to get some more ink, as I could never bare to cut the original, it's just too great.  Feel free to use these in your art too.  I would love to see what you come up with!

It reminds me of this- 


I think I just found the answer to the inevitable question I'll be asked later tonight- what movie are we going to watch, babe?
So, while we're on the subject.  What movie are YOU going to watch tonight, babe?

Nice to meet you! I grew up in SR and still work there.
I see we also share a love of japanese objects that talk. I just went to Japantown and stocked up on some sweet stationary with a caterpiller farting the word "apple!"
Thanks for entering my contest!

Hi there! Your new stationary sounds awesome, right up my alley :) Thanks for the opportunity, it's very generous. I plan on doing a giveaway here pretty soon too, I can't wait it seems like it would be super exciting! I'm new to this whole thing so I think I will celebrate when I make it to 100 posts. Half way there. Better start posting more:)

Horay for spatulas! That's my boys image on Facebook. Hee. Spatula. Just so much fun to say. And so inspiring. Hmmm.

It is a great noun:) But all of this talk about spatulas is making me want pancakes!
