Sweet Summer Days

We all look forward to Summer
I know I sure did when I lived in Chicago
Although, I create all year long,
during our hot summers,
I seem to be drawn to create even more
inside the coolness of my studio
I am always on the hunt 
for interesting bundles
of supplies for the shop
I created these junk journal paper kits
for those who stay indoors
So, wherever you live
have a wonderful Summer!
I am closing the shop for a bit,
going to be restocking
with some new vintage finds!

Thank you for stopping by!

Shop Update & A Message

 I search out the best crochet pieces
 creating petite fabric journals
one of a kind journals

Supplies I Love
 Putting together supplies
for my shop
Fresh new listings
for you
to browse through

 Soft vintage pieces with tatting
I hope to visit other blogs today!
So many bloggers are only on Instagram
which makes me sad.
Staring at my phone gives me a headache!
To top it off, Google has made it harder
for others to comment and it feels like no one is here!
I see the visits are in the 100's 
(sometimes thousands)
Let me say, thank you for letting me know
that blogging is still important.

A French Box of Inspiration

I started these inspiration kits
weeks ago
but allergies got in the way - so not funny
Now that I feel so much better
I've listed these sweet collections
in the shop
Each box is unique
there's a lot to work with
I had time to create
another tray of supplies
Sorting through my supplies
create supplies for others
I hope you found 
some inspiration today!
I have to say,
I thought about purchasing
a new camera
my old Nikon is working just fine
Have a wonderful Memorial Day Holiday!

Enjoying the Weekend

One morning months ago,
I got up and started creating
petite junk journals
Using scraps, ephemera, tin types, trims
I made 7 petite junk journals
I've listed 3 so far in my shop
it's so hard to let go of some treasures
 There are more inspiration kits
in my shop again
for those who create

Here's to a beautiful weekend
whether you are
taking care of family
Simply spend a little time
feeding your own soul

Thanks for stopping by!

For Your Creative Side

 I did it, I pulled out the sewing machine!
Making art supply wraps
Ready to hold your favorite
art supplies
 I've filled each pocket
with paper & fabric pieces
these can easily hold
paint brushes, scissors, embroidery supplies & more
If you are looking 
an inspiration kit
 this is a good one to start with
 grab your scissors, glue or sewing machine
Let's kick start that creativity!
We have a wood shop that is always
producing salvaged wood pieces.
So, I printed this Saint Ursula image
onto fabric and added it to a shabby white wood scrap!
New in the SHOP
Religious pieces
an antique engraving that I adore

Let's just say I've been busy in the studio.
It feels good to work in here.
I have so much more to photograph
list in my shop.
Keep an eye out for more kits!

Thanks for stopping in!
