Simple discoveries ~

You know I'm always on the prowl, right?
Just looking for amazing things to create with,
to stash away for a future project....
or just to enjoy looking at ~ until I start the future project :)

I dropped by Hob Lob today and I couldn't help myself,
I always dig around for the strangest stuff!
I found a bag of leather scraps ~
they always have them, and they always look different....

The first bag I found had THIS amazing piece inside!
Can I please have a sofa
upholstered with this gorgeous crackled leather????
I'm not sure what I'll make from it but, well... at least I have it :)

The other little bag had suede scraps inside.
I have a hankering to make a tiny pair of fairy shoes ~
Don't you think suede will be the perfect thing to use????

They will be really similar to the little elf shoe I made for our Christmas tree....
but much more natural and "of the forest" :)

What is it about teeny tiny shoes??
I can't help it ~
I just love them!

Have an amazing Thursday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Great finds Dawn, It seems like Hobby Lobby carries really nice things. To bad we don't have one near me...or maybe it is a good thing... for my wallet LOL.

I did not know that Hobby Lobby sold little bags of scrap material. I know you will make some wonderful things from them. Your gifts from Lisa are fantastic. She is such a sweetie! Thanks for sharing the new bloggers. "Encouragement is oxygen to the soul!" Best wishes, Tammy

Oh! I just stumbled upon your blog, and have only read two entries, but I am in LOVE with it! I was looking at pictures of yellow Victorian farmhouses, when WHAM! I wound up reading this very cheery blog. Thank you for sharing, and I must say, your big yellow farm house is like my dream house come true! :)

I love digging around for treasures at Hobby Lobby:) Can't wait to see those little shoes when you create them! Have a blessed day dear Dawn, HUGS!

Oh my! when I saw the first picture you posted, I thought it was a loaf of overbaked bread! I know you will end up making something divine out of this piece...can't wait to see what you come up with!


The oddball items are the most fun! Of course, if it weren't for those kinds of things, I would actually be able to walk in my studio!

Happy creating,

I would love to be around you when your mind is twirling with thoughts of what you are going to create with something you find in a bag of scrap materials.

Hi Dawn,

You should get an award for having blogged for four years! Congratulations! My god, I am afraid to look and see how long I have been at it. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's always nice to hear from old friends. :)
The old little shoe is very cute, you are right there is very special about them.
Have a great weekend!

xoxo ~ Enzie

That is real find, when I check on the scraps bin at hobby lobby it usually has fleece with trucks and I know your brain is reeling right now with possibilities :)
