The photo below is just a collection of things I love ~ OH, and you must try this at home. First I used two different vintage papers to see how this would work. One is a very old sheet of paper of minutes written in a farmer's meeting of some kind and the other from an old dictionary ~ I ran them both through my printer to print this gorgeous egg picture and LOOK!! Don't you think it's amazing? I'm going to use these as backdrops in assemblages.
Have you ever seen the mother of five sons having tiny pink ballet shoes? Well, here I am and they are the most precious shade of pink you've ever seen! Why do I love them? Who knows, but they are divine.
A pair of baby shoes Cindy found on one of her trips. They are the softest leather ~ I just had to have them.
Inside my sewing machine table drawer ~ just a little of this and that ~
This is a little night stand that I painted for my youngest son's nursery. I had it decorated in Classic Pooh and painted this to match. I can't part with it though ~ I still love it.
Just a tiny fragment of the fabric and linens I have in my possession. I need to be sewing right now day and night just to make a dent in my collection!
Little letter tiles I made with paperclay and an alphabet mold. Gotta get busy and use these.
My inspiration board ~ there are pieces of artwork from Mica (paper dolls), Delila (the heart hanger), and Suzi Finer (the Alice in Wonderland collage) attached for me to enjoy! I love other's artwork, don't you?
My growing collection of dilapidated old, old books to use in my artwork ~ love, love them!
Why do I like these? String. I love it.
Here's a few of those spice bottles that had plastic tops (yuck) I found a corks to fit them! Now to alter them....
What is this mass of stuff? Tons of goodies and supplies, snippets of inspiration and artwork in the making! Sweet Beachy do you see the little baby shoe I'm almost finished with?
I need to get busy and finish my paperclay figures. I just need a few more hours in my day....
A doll crib on top of this shelf! I just love it and maybe one day I'll have a little granddaughter that will enjoy playing with it! Botanicals in old jars to use in artwork and paper. I've got to get something to separate my paper better...the small sets of drawers hold stamps.
See the jar of lavender? I use it for sachets...
I'm at the store this week and I don't tend to make too much during the week that I work. Even though I was off last week it was pretty much a wash creatively with school starting and working a few days for Cindy. But I'm definitely feeling the urge to get back into my room now that I've straightened it up a bit. It's time to make some art!
And thank you sweet Nena for nominating me for this award!!
This is the way I feel about each and every one of you. You drop by to see what I'm up to ~ look at my photos and always leave the sweetest comments and encouragement for me.
Thank you all so very much.
I nominate every one of you . . .
you are all dolls!
