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
and
there's a lot to work with
I had time to create
another tray of supplies
Sorting through my supplies
to
create supplies for others
***
I hope you found 
some inspiration today!
I have to say,
I thought about purchasing
a new camera
BUT
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
creating
gardening
cleaning
cooking
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
for
the
shop
Ready to hold your favorite
art supplies
 I've filled each pocket
with paper & fabric pieces
BUT
these can easily hold
paint brushes, scissors, embroidery supplies & more
If you are looking 
for
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
and
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
and
list in my shop.
Keep an eye out for more kits!

Thanks for stopping in!

Paquets of Supplies

It always starts with "something", am I right?
This time it started with these ladies,
these ladies who remind me of Spring days
This lead to creating contained supplies in petite boxes
trying to keep it interesting and new,
I wrapped each supply box with different colored papers,
added various labels,
tied them up with string
and
viola!




I plan on creating many more of these paquets
for the shop!
****
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Papier Love

Ah, my first love, paper!
 It is so relaxing to spread out
scraps, paper images, tags
and
create away!
New in the shop
paper bundles 
****
These are a bit different...
I've rolled up burlap, fabric images, paper images
and
tied them up with twine from France
I love little packages
I created these with 6 cardstock images
and
tied them up with the twine from France 
A lot to choose from
and
create today or save for another day 
A petite vintage brass frame
New in the Shop

It's been a nice weekend
and
I hope you had one, too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Kits and More Kits

 The days in my studio
have become a routine of...
creating....listing in my shop...
and
then I organize & purge big time
 It is an ongoing theme
it never changes
from month to month
 the good news is....
it pushes me to create 
kits of this & that
 I won't bore you with details,
like...boxes & boxes of bits/supplies
that I've collected my whole life
to be honest, you just never know 
if you will need an item for a creation.
You just don't know but there does come
a time when you say.....someone else would want to use this.
****
There you have it....my biggest reason for inspiration kits!

Take care & until next time.
