November Studio Time


I am home from a recent trip to Chicago
to see family
It was cold in Chicago
but
we had a great time
eating, antiquing, sharing

I am back in the studio
creating away
For some reason, 
I felt that I had to create these ornaments yesterday
-only to find out that I had donated
my mica flakes & glitter-
but a search in my supplies
turned up just enough 
to finish these ornaments

Using vintage French tins
on these one of a kind ornaments

These sweet vintage cross pins
I found while antiquing in Chicago 
I bought a small bag of them for my shop.
I think they would look nice on a fabric book!

I will be sending one to my Aunt,
who lost her home in the Camp Fire in California.
We as a family are gathering family photos for her.
She lost everything. 
Where do you begin when this happens?

Always Something To Do in the Studio


There is always something to do in my studio


and as I pull from my stock 
I find it's getting easier to part with most of it


trust me, this isn't easy to do
when you absolutely love what you do


create what you love
and
you will always be surrounded by beauty


a stashed away frame 
becomes useful again 


a sweet vintage bowl
collects pieces of soon to be 
supply boxes


a lucky find of 300 yards of vintage lace ribbon
Craft sticks tucked away for another day
French themed rubber stamps
Tattered Angels glimmer mist (in cork)


turned into Thank You gifts for my customers
***
All is good in the studio

Thanks for stopping in!

Creating Purse or Journal Adornments

 I'm not sure about everyone
but
when I decide to create
I never know what direction
I'm heading until I sit down
 Once I started working on these purse adornments
I simply could not stop
 I have bits & pieces of jewelry
sorted & waiting to be used
 These adornments are in my shop
 I used vintage & newer pieces
while creating these one of a kind adornments


 Ready to clasp onto your purse or bag
Oh, and I rearranged my studio furniture
AGAIN
If anyone knows a good therapist, just kidding!
More on that later.....
Thanks so much for stopping by!
