Handmade Beauties Won...
I recently visited Vicki Welsh and her Field Trips in Fiber blog. I won this beautiful hand painted and hand stitched postcard. She used the new stencils from Terri of Stegart. This is Sunshine Smiles each time I look at it. Thank you very much Vicki.
Here is the backside of the postcard. Bright and cheery and beautiful. I hope you visit both Vicki and Terri. You will be amazed at the inspiration both these creative ladies offer on their blogs.
And look at this gorgeous display of beaded pins all kept safely in this felted flower. Jill of Fiberluscious sent this to me after visiting her blog. She participated in the Grow Your Blog party. I can honestly say I am now a follower of hers.
Thank you very much Jill for this beautiful handmade box of glorious bounty. Your presentation is fabulicious!
My time lately has been spent doing a lot of deep house cleaning with Mr. C helping me. Actually he is pushing me along as cleaning is not my favorite pastime. I am also continuing to organize and purge my studio of all that I insist on saving (hoarding). Mr. C always has a rule: "Volume In Equals Volume Out"! I tried to show him how much packaging volume there is but he doesn't count that as Volume Out. I do believe the more space we have then the more stuff we acquire to fill it. When we remodeled our kitchen a few years back I purposely kept one small drawer completely empty. I am happy to say that drawer remains empty to this day. I find myself taking the time to really think about whether I truly need an item or if I am just wanting it. Why is that so hard to do when it comes to fabric, lace, ribbon, buttons, beads, charms and all things used in creating? I just feel blessed that I am able to be creative and make things.
