Yesterday I recieved this very lovely card and tag as a swap I did with Diane Knott. She is a designer and water color artist extroadinare, and I really feel it a privilege that I have some of her pieces. I love her vintage style and she does everything up perfect. She has had many of her designs published into fabrics and she just has quite a list of accomplishments plus she is a really nice person. Please check out her blog at www.dianeknottsmusings.blogspot.com. you will be glad you visited. Thanks so much for the swap Diane!
This Easter Egg Hunt layout was done a few years ago. I just love the colors and the details. I especially love the mini Easter baskets with all the tiny mini eggs. I loved having this egg hunt with my granddaughters. We had so much fun that day with all our family members. It was a great family reunion
This was a project I did last week. I made fifty of those little boxes for a church women's organization called Relief Society. I just love the way these look in this basket. These little boxes have a magnet on the back to attach to the refrigerator. A poem and quote are in each one.
Okay, this seriously was a quick thought. I was going to go visit my friend to pick something up and see her new creative space. I whipped this up to take to her, because I knew she would like the vintage feel. We just like the same things. Wow her creative space is great and she has the most wonderful old hats and demonstrator dealer shoes from the 1920's. And I was right, she did love her little Easter decoration. Happy Easter to all!
I recently found these wonderful freebie prints and knew I had to do something with them for Easter. I knew that they had to be vintage, and once I got started, I could not stop. So I have three. One is for my living room to sit on this great sterling silver easel. Another one will be for a swap. And the other one will be listed in my Etsy Shop I am trying to get going. What do you think? I like them all! I can't decide.
When I saw these pictures that my daughter in-law took, I had to get a layout done right away. This is baby Ella Mae and she is soon to be 7 months old. I of course think she is one of the most beautiful adorable and lovable babies I have ever seen. I know, I know! I am the Grandmother, but seriously she is! I just had to use many feminine touches, on this layout, because, she just is the epitomy of feminity. Love this little girl. She is my seventh granddaughter. She has the most beautiful blue eyes, so this one is titled "Those dazzling Baby blues" What a little doll! And way to go Tiffany for the wonderful photography.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
