Missing my Chance

Another card for Mojo Monday:

Just a note about the fabric flower - While living in Taiwan I discovered a shop near the Fabric Market which sold accessories including fabric flowers in every color of the rainbow.  They came attached to a strip of tulle.  I bought 3 strips of flowers.  A few days ago I ventured into the local scrapbooking stores for the first time since returning to Boise.  Low and behold, one of the stores had a huge supply of the same fabric flowers on tulle.  I thought I had something that would be original but, once again, it has already been discovered here.  I wish I had bought much more of it in Taiwan because it was no doubt considerably cheaper.

Same thing with Washi tape.  I frequented a bookstore in Taipei called Eslite.  They carried loads of Washi tape and I bought some thinking I could do something different than other Americans.  But when I got home I found out Washi tape was all the rage.  Darn it.

I have one more trick up my sleeve.  I had better get busy using it before it, too, becomes popular!
