I finally feel like I am in "the know"! For the first time ever I actually saw one of the projects you suggested before you posted the link. I follow Anna The Red's blog also!

I don't know why that makes me so happy, but it's a Monday and I'll take what I can get. :)

Yay for tiny radish mushrooms!

David, awesome. I only found it because I googled mushroom tutorials the other day. (Long story.) You are way more in the know than I am! Happy Monday!

Speaking of mushrooms, how about these cute pencils?

Wow, I must say, those are cute projects. Then I read "carve a mushroom from a radish" and I had to just chuckle to myself. But Thanks for posting!
