Today would have been my beloved Grandma's birthday. She is now passed on but I will forever be grateful for her love and patience in teaching me so may valuable life's lessons and the love of sewing and creating crafts of many mediums. Grandma is the one who taught me to "see things with different eyes". I cherish my memories and love her always.
I was fortunate to participate in Kimberly's ArtJoyStuff Masked Beauty ATC swap and these are my goodies I received. Kimberly always adds something wonderful to the package and I love her banner with the orange and black theme. Polka dots, buttons and pom-poms make it super fun. Thank you very much Kimberly and Michele and Peggy and Manuela. Each ATC is so clever and beautiful!
I also received this wonderful package from Lynn of Trash to Treasure blog. Her domino pendant is fabulous and the little owl charm is OWLdorable. Thank you Lynn. I feel so blessed.
I spent a tiny bit of time in my studio lately. Household chores and other nuisances get in my way. I made some envelopes out of a roll of vintage gorgeous wall paper.
Here are some of the sizes I made. The hold together very well with double sticky tape. The orange envelope shows some fun striped and polka dotted washi tape.
I created a tri-fold card with an owl feature to send to my daughter for Halloween. Grandma and she both love owls. Grandma used to collect owl figurines and such. Possibly the circle is complete with my daughter loving them just as her Great-Grandma loved them.
Our weather is turning very cold and there is snow predicted for Donner Summit this weekend. Mr. C and I must travel over Donner Summit for a function we are attending. The high is to be 46F. Brrr... I am going to be very cold so out come the layers of clothes I shall be wearing.
Safe Halloween to all and may your Treats be many...
Breaking News: I just returned from the post office with this gorgeous card I have received from my friend Theresa (no blog). No photo I took would do justice to the amazing shimmery colors and gradations she achieved on this uber fabulous Halloween card. Thank you so much Theresa. I totally love this and the stamping you did. Creative Card Bliss...
