Very honored ~

I love this photo ~ I took it way back the beginning of the year I believe....
some of my very favorite things to collect!

Yet another repeat baby....so sorry, I need to go shopping!!

I received a beautiful magazine in the mail today.
I'm so honored that Stampington added my Advent calendar to
this current issue of Handcrafted!!!
This issue is a gathering of past published artwork using
tons of different mediums...from sewing, to sculpture, to collage and more.

I found a few close-up photos of this labor of love calendar...
It was quite a doozy to create!!!
I loved using so many trinkets and treasures as little ornaments ~

I've had a few folks asking about the different glues I use ~
Below are my basic favorites!
I use Fabri-Tac for EVERYTHING!!
The matte gel medium is what I use to collage papers to surfaces.
I have several more goodies that I've acquired over the years
but these are my stock items!

I hope you're staying cool and comfortable during these
terribly hot days of summer ~
I am SO thankful for air conditioning!!!

Have a great Tuesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Dawn, the calendar is so beautiful. I just love it. You can tell it was made with love. Thanks so much for the glue information, much appreciated. I'm off to Barnes and Noble to get my copy of Stampington Handcrafted. Would love to make my own version of this for a very special friend for mine's birthday if it's ok. She loves small, minatures, so I would work around that. Thanks so much.

Now - about thte Lost Dool drawing - oh! That is a childhood memory of my own and a story I often tell during my doll shows with my Raggety Ann from 1961 - the poor dear that was lost just as you have pictured here! Thanks for the delight!
