It's here!!!! Plus sweet art gifts ~

The premier issue of Art Quilting Studio has finally arrived at my door!!! Seems as though it took forever but it was certainly worth the wait! If you love fabric.....and you love collage.....and you love creating.....this issue is FOR YOU!!! There are so many amazing projects featured ~

My little wren submission ~ she will be offered for purchase through Somerset....I'll be sure to let you know the link when I do :) What an honor for them to do that!

A small sampling of the beautiful work featured:

Such sweet, wonderful gifts have arrived in the mail the last few that make me smile, because of the precious artist's hands that put these treasures together and thought enough of me to give me their wares, thank you so very much!!!!

First is sweet Lorraine of Creative Daily...her parcel arrived and after opening the envelope her gift was wrapped in the most beautiful cheesecloth ~ that had been hand dyed and also screen printed!!! Cheesecloth ~ how cool is that? Wonderful trinkets and treasures, a bookmark with case, a pocket filled with a tiny crocheted doily, ribbon and hand dyed fabric ~ so many wonderful things...thank you so much Lorraine, I love each and every thing!!

Next, Blanca of Magic Moonlight Studio sent me her beautiful handmade tags!!!! They are each such little works of art ~ she has an Ebay store where she sells them for a wonderful price....just take a look HERE. She's just opened a shoppe too!

The trinkets and treasures she included are so neat too! Rusty label holders, keys....Look at the large tags, even one personalized for me. I can so see these hanging from my new windows on the ceiling, can't you? Each one has it very own plastic sleeve to protect the image too. Fairies, birds, cottages, babies ~ she has so many different styles. Thank you so much dear Blanca, you are so very sweet to send me your artwork, I love them all!!!

I love the precious friends that I've made while blogging ~ no matter where we all live, we are a community and we truly care for one another.
I'm just always so happy to be here and to get to know you all ~

Tonight, our son Chase graduates from high school....I can't even believe it!!! We will be going to the ceremony this evening if it doesn't rain! He's been accepted at West Georgia Collage and will be heading there in the sweeties are all growing up!

Noah's last day of school is today as well. He has been being tutored at home this last month but went today to a sock hop that his elementary school held as a farewell to the fifth graders. Of course he didn't dance but he did have a blast!!! He and his little walker! He is getting stronger by the day and using the leg more and more. We go his awards ceremony this morning .....then to come home and prepare for Chase's graduation.

I need to share some photos of little Clara soon too!!! She is growing so fast ~ two months old now and she weighs 11 lbs 11 oz!

Wishing you a wonderful Friday sweet friends,
Thank you always for stopping by to see me ~
xxoo, Dawn

I cant wait to get my hands on that mag. and see your work! I painted the bird that you have for your logo and I used it without asking your permission first...I am so sorry, I'm asking now, is it ok (I can remove it quickly if you like) Check out my blog (you might not even recognize the bird lol) Glad to hear your son is doing so much better!
