Playing with crayons...

Crayons are a really great way to enhance a stitched project...and they aren't as messy as fabric paint.Besides, who doesn't love to color!?
This project started out as a picture, then for reasons I can't explain it turned into a tooth fairy pillow!!
These things come to me in the dead of the night...
I had a lot of fun creating this. More to come!

Happy Easter !!!!

I have been married for 28 years...compromise is key. Even with the dogs!!
Ok, so I dress Oliver up in cute little shirts. He likes it!!
And well, maybe they were getting a bit sissy.

Sooooo, I found the baby a " West Coast Chopper " t shirt!

While I waited to pay...I HAD to get the baby blue bunny ears too!!!
It is Easter after all!!!

Mom!!! Don't make me wear these!!!!

I sure hope the neighbors don't see me !!

Take that!!!

I'm soooo happy I'm not wearing those stupid bunny ears!!!

What's new in Craft-Opia!!

A couple of weeks ago I found some really awsome embroidered vintage linens at a flea market.
I tend to collect things like this the way I collect fabric...all I can say is when I'm gone there's going to be one crafty-crazy estate sale!!!

Anyway, one piece I bought just screamed to become a ring bearer pillow!!! It was just too perfect!
The backing had to be something special, so I used a piece of a silk crazy quilt.
This was such a simple little project, but it made me smile when I was finished !!

Oliver's doing great! My baby is growing up!!
He has some bunny ears for Easter...that is if I can convince him they need to stay on his head!


Here's the back !

Good stuff...

I'm so happy to say that I'm writing this post on my NEW computer!!!!
Honestly, my old one deserves a place in a museum !!
The poor old thing was on it's last legs!!!

My beloved came home Friday with this new computer and my jaw dropped!
What a difference!!

On the artsy end, I had the best custom order4 last week.
Been working with a bride to be that wanted something for her wedding guest to place personal notes in rather than a guest book...
I came up with the idea of re-vamping a chafing dish.
It turned out really cute!!
It's nice working on something so wonderfully sweet and romantic!!!


A bowl for wishes, hopes and dreams...
