What's New?

I've been busy, my daughter ended up having a sinus infection so I wasn't able to get creative for a bit but I've caught up nicely. I signed up to participate in a secret pal gift giving game at the scrapbook store I go to, I finished up that gift for my secret pal, it's a business card holder/notepad holder. She likes greens and blue's so I painted it a subdued sage green, covered the back and sides with a pretty blue and ivory floral paper; then embellished the front with 3 handmade quilled flowers in coordinating colors. I cut 30 pieces of paper to put inside and wrapped a matching paper around them to keep them together; hope she likes it because I was really pleased with the end result. 

I also finished a Mother's Day Sign that my coworker ordered. Painted the oval wood sign on the back and edges in an ivory color, printed the text on the floral paper then cut it to the size of the sign. I then covered the entire thing with Modge Podge; embellished with quilled flowers in crimson, pale pink and rose - I was happy with this too.

What else, oh I know; I figured out how to create treasure boxes entirely out of paper strips. I bought a kit to show me how; only kit I've ever purchased; well it wasn't as hard as I thought. They use up a lot of paper but I'm excited about the one's I did and I've got lots of idea's running through my head for others. So I've got plenty to keep me busy and I'm sure not enough time to get them done. 

Have a fabulous evening!


Flower Pots

Flower pot paper clip holders with wire holder for notes or photos. Too cute aren't they? These are a revised design from my original flower paper clip holders, I made one just experimenting and my coworker ordered 4 of them for Mother's Day gifts - here they are. They'd also make perfect little thank you's for a coworker/assistant or for a Teacher Appreciation gift - the verses on the oval cards are personalized.




Sweet Little Sleeping Babies

It's taken quite some time but I've finally revised and re-created my baby embellishments and have them posted in my etsy shop and have a set for my booth here in town also. These are one of a kind embellishments created by yours truly and are completely customized for you.  I think they are just the cutest little babies, sleeping with their pacifiers - how sweet they look; I remember those days.
