A New Year & Inspiration in the Shop

It's a New Year
woo hoo
Happy New Year to everyone!
I've had so many creative ideas lately
I just need to write them down
when they flow into my head
***
You know this gal cannot resist a bundle of anything!
What is it about tied up bundles?
These bundles are sold
but more are headed to the shop
You can always email me for a custom bundle!
***
New in the Shop
There are new kits in the shop





As you can see, I've been busy!
I hope you found some inspiration today
and
as always, thank you for stopping by

Keeping It Simple During Christmas

Yes, I know, we all say it -
gonna keep it simple this year -
BUT I MEAN IT this time
Because I work 3 days a week in an office,
I find I need a TO DO list this time of year
My plan is 
simple gifts
simple decorations
simple meals
I offer to you in my online shop
simple treasures
if you need an order specially wrapped
please let me know
I hope to entertain you with much more
on simple ideas
in the next posts!

Thank you so much for leaving a comment!
It really makes my day!

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!
