The creative process ~

I've been working a few new goodies...
one for a friend and one to sell!
Two sweet flea bags, embellished with stuff I love ~
gorgeous old lace, vintage buttons and a random watch face of course!

The process is not as easy as you think.
I have to go through ALL of my lace...selecting JUST the right pieces.
I lay everything on the bag, squinting my eyes...and I tilt my head and study it.
Just to see if this lace or that button is the right choice to make it wonderful!

I try to keep a good stash of things to create with because I love having choices!

Here are my two purses!
One is for a friend...but I have another just placed in my Etsy shop too!

This is the one that I've listed in my Etsy...
perfect to take while you're out antiquing and shopping for goodies!!!

Thank you always, always for stopping by to see me!!!
And if you've not entered my recent giveaway
Just a few rolls of seam binding for you to use in your creative projects ~

Wishing you a wonderful Friday and weekend my sweet friends ~
Hugs and love,

I think that you will go out of this world covered in lace with needle and thread in hand. My goodness you are always making something wonderful.
I know the perfect scripture for you....whatever your hand finds to do do it with all your might and I think the Good Lord would allow you to even embelish that one and add the words do it with all your might and a touch of lace!

These are two more beautiful bags. I'm envious of your stash of lace, buttons etc. But I know what you mean.. having a good selection is totally necessary. Have a wonderful weekend Dawn.

Love the purses! I like how you have the white buttons in the box...I have mason jars filled with buttons but I do have a box like that...but no room to set it out! I too have tons of lace and you are absolutely right about the process of picking out just the right piece!!
Anxiously awaiting the Hug Snug giveaway! I've ordered from them several times since you shared that resource!
