Happy Thursday!

I love showing you what I've been up to, and I have been creating, but it's been on the computer not in the artroom!

I'm so excited, too....I've actually SOLD several fairy jar tutorials already!!! It's so wonderful emailing these instructions to Denmark and Canada and not worrying about shipping charges for these customers.

Each tutorial that I'm putting together is totally visual. I've taken photographs at each important step in creating these pieces. I've included a sample from each tutorial below, just to give you an idea what they look like. Plus, I'm also listing the type of supplies that I use and tidbits of information that I've learned along the way that help things go much smoother.

I've just added the baby shoe pincushion tutorial to The Little Speckled Egg blog tonight!

What I'm hoping is that I will sell these tutorials and pass along the desire to create these items yourself. To put your personal touch on these pieces. Then, I'll be here thinking of new ideas for artwork and then eventually sharing how I made them too!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to see what I'm up to ~

I hope that your Thursday is wonderful!

xxoo, Dawn

Can't wait to someday go to Barnes and Noble just to pick up YOUR very own new book. That will be a great day. Your beautiful world of creating should be in a book.
It's the first thing I thought of when I saw your new blog addition.
Your always inspiring Sweet Dawn.

Oh sweet serendipity -- I can use this information in my interview!!! AND Dawn, I would love the tutorial on the fairy do I get that? Is it on your etsy??

Sherry said...

Okay, if I would scroll down and read "UP" instead of "DOWN", I would have had the answer to my questions!!! I shall go and check out the new blog which looks wonderful!!

Hi Dawn!! That is such a great idea. I hope it really takes off for you. It's so nice to have the instructions on a photo! I've never been good at figuring those things out, but that makes it so easy.

Hi Dawn,
Your tutorials are such a wonderful idea! You are truly an inspiration, I know I always say that, but I honestly can't get over your creativity! I haven't stopped thinking of baby shoes since I frist saw your post! So many times I see them just tossed away! What a creative way to use them, and of course yours are just so beautiful!
Thanks so much for visiting! You made me feel so much better about posting!
Have a lovely night!
Be back soon!

Oh Dawn....The Little Speckled Egg is just perfect. My friend purchased one of your journals and said it was so wonderful - "absolute perfection" - as soon as you do a tutorial on "journals"...yours truly will be the first buyer! (that's hoping you are going to do one!) I am so excited about your new enterprise...I am such a novice and now with the sharing of your knowledge and talent....woohoo - I may become an "artist" !!!!!!
