This darling wreath kit was from Brandy. She has the most wonderful supplies. You must check her out. Love everything she does! Her nature inspired supplies are so lovely and really speak to me. I hung this pretty on my mirror in my entryway.
This adorable centerpiece is from Tiffany. Her blog has the most beautiful photos-I wish I was a near as good at photography. Her shop has beautiful vintage items, so visit!
Thanks for the Valentine inspiration!
I had the jewelry making bug again and ordered a few items--one of which is a bracelet I want to make for my mother in law's wedding in a few weeks. I'll share when it's complete.
Have a great weekend!
I had the most fun in a long time. I really feel refreshed like I got it off my mind. I believe this is going to be the best therapy any money can buy! I can now put all my fine art skills back to use, plus my newly learned mixed media, and write my thoughts out. Can you ask for anything sweeter?
If anyone is interested in my collages from the previous posts, email me and we can discuss!
Have a great weekend!
I made this one for fun. I had this card that I knew I wouldn't use but when collaged on this tag and embellished with sweet little girl doo-dads, lots of white and pink ribbons. It would look so cute hanging from a doorknob or hook.
This one was different. I really wanted to incorporate the crochet flowers which I added vintage pearls as stamens. It has sweet vintage images and I like the long form I used this time. I'm still not sure I like it or not.
Lastly, is the bitty book I made: Portion (see flickr for whole book)
Have a great weekend! I plan on resting and recouping my strength. Mom always seems to be the one that has to be up till all hours when the family is sick.
Do people really use this word? In my job, I have to write with definite pontification. Can you say Ewwhhh!
Back to pondering, I would spend time just staring up at the big fluffy clouds or out my window wishing, hoping, and dreaming. My early teenage years my Dad made a window seat in an alcove in my room. I plopped fluffy and bright pillows in it (it was the 1980’s~was anything not bright? Leggings, big tunic tops, and rubber bracelets—remember?) and then time would be gone.
You know the look I’m talking about~ it appears you are staring but just actually looking beyond that spot. I’m really bad in the car after leaving work~ I believe the car just knows to go pick up Devyn from daycare and go home.
I would love to go to Art Nest . I received Taking Flight by Kelly Rae Roberts for Christmas and though I just started it, I’ve been really ‘brooding’ (see Ma I agree this time) over my current career and where it’s not going due to lack of interest on my part for the past year.
So I will next work on my goals for the year and share next time.
Check out this awesome year long blogfest by Kari at Artsy Mama: A Year of Color. Julie Collings is the guest this month! I got her book Pretty Little Felts for Christmas too and LOVING all the projects!
Surely there are others out there who are like me!
My sweet Lucky~~Look at those soulful eyes~She's pondering where is my next treat?! Most likely to have little Devyn leave her alone (she loves hugging the dogs).
I love the owl and birds~~we'll be using them all the time. They are to cute to use once a year!
Reminds me of Noggin. That kid loves that channel!
I made few few items that I've decided to sell for Valentine's Day. They are listed HERE
Mini collages I made from salvaged vintage embellishments and paper.
A few 'Love Note' tags for you to write your sweet messages on!
