has simply flown by. I haven't posted much or have been very creative, but I have thought of you dear blog friends often... musing over what pretty vingette to put to together, photograph, and upload to share with you all. This blog land has been a great experience and opened up new flights of fancy, sense of belonging, and oodles of inspiration for me. You all mean so much...

Life has away of sweeping you away and making you see things from a new perspective... Responsbilities have made it necessary for me to work outside the home., leaving less time for studio fun and creative pursuits. Honestly, I have just been plane tired. Maybe its the dreary winter days having their effect or a case of the doldrums. But, I am totally longing for spring and a new season of creativiy. I am sure it will be here soon.

Thank you dear blog friends for letting me open up a little....

This little treat box was made with vintage wall paper, crepe paper, velvet leaves, and millenry flowers....

Romantic Cuff

I just had to share these pics with you! What a difference between Hope's photography and mine. This hand made cuff is now available on our etsy shop. Along with another romantic addition... more about that later in another post. I am always amazed at Hope's talent and eye for a great composition! I can't help it if I am biased and a proud mother...

Hmmmm... I wonder what I could do with a better camera :)

I felt it...

is the answer to the question- what do I do when I can't find a good quality felt for a project. Umm hmmm... Neccessity is the mother of invention!

Take 100% wool yarn, then knit to desired size. Throw it in the wash and then ~

Voila~ felt
And what is the felt for, you may ask. A romantic cuff! Our latest workshop project.

Check out these beauties-from the "Wearing our hearts on our sleeves" workshop. All the ladies did a great job.

The hearts are made of paper clay, then stamped and painted, then embellished with the saying "eternal devotion". One of the attendees made the observation that it's amazing how different each person's project turns out even when using the same supplies. It's wonderful how we are all unique with our own creative vision.

As always we had a great time!
