Something New !

When I see wedding pictures, or any pictures
at flea markets it makes me sad...
who are they? Do they have family?
I mean, it was their special day and here they
are in a cardboard box at a flea market!
So, it was really important to take this picture and do something lovely with it...
A keepsake box.



I took a little break

I got the chance to go to Squaw Valley last
weekend ...the year I was born the Olympics were
held there...that was a LONG time ago!! Lol !

Here are a few fun things I found while wandering
around in the village.


I made a new friend!!

A "ski chair" ...too funny!

Time for me...

Thought I'd share some pics of an on-going project...my version of the artsy bags that are soooo popular.
I'm designing this one for me,something I don't do very much! .
To be totally honest, I'm not sure if it's done yet...that's the fun part!!!

Eventually I'll be offering similar designs in my etsy shop.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day!!!

Eat cake!!

Last post I showed my first attempt at creating a unique Wedding Cake topper...
I'm hooked!
Partly because I've always been drawn to turning overlooked everyday items into a possible heirloom.
The other reason is I feel so incredibly happy when I'm done!!
The piece could end up being part of someones special day...what's better than that?

Here's a couple of my newest designs.

Something New !

Lots of ideas rattling around here in my little brain!
So much fun stuff going on with weddings...I don't know anyone planning a anything, but I can't resist watching the shows about dream weddings !

So, I thought I'd try my hand at a unique cake topper.

I had the bones left from an old hat that I'd removed all the flowers from...added millinery, love doves and some fancy-glittery old jewels...wah la!
It was soooo fun !
Have a great Superbowl weekend!!!

White Rabbit with a twist !!!

I thought it would be a fun idea to start doing small canvas's to go along with some of my doll designs...besides it's fun to switch things up once in a while !

I'm a little rusty , so when it came time to do his fluffy ruffle, I cheated and used a little scrap left over from the White Rabbit doll.
Then came the glitter...can't live without glitter!
The end result...pretty cute!!
Isn't it funny how the best ideas can come from a mistake!

He'll be available on my Etsy shop soon !!
