Weary of the Dreary

(long sigh) it ever gonna be warm? No sunshine today so my studio is looking a little gray. At least I am having fun with some projects for Flower Mart. I just finished this sweet little brooch with a lovely William Morris style print, some of my shimmery vintage seam binding and a teeny bit of sparkle from a faceted glass bead - and I must say it looks nice on my black tee, so maybe I will give it a "test run" for the day. (smiles) You see...sunshine just peeked through the clouds with that idea!

I am in love with the tiny portraits on front - with the names of some real pirates, no less!


Pirate banners this time ...this one reverses and you could probably personalize the back with words or a name.

Little Boy Blue

Here's a close up of one of the nursery rhyme panels...

Jack and Jill

My "first draft" for some banners I am working on...not bad! I love the adorable nursery rhyme fabric. It has three slightly larger panels with Mary Had A Little Lamb, Jack and Jill, and Little Boy Blue. It is reversable with red n white and blue n white dots on the back side.

Front Page News

I was checking through my etsy shop this morning and was surprised to see that I had gotten a lot of hits on my rings. Apparently I was featured on the front page of the Etsy website last night...very exciting! I celebrated by washing my truck...oozing layers of pink suds made it very festive!

See it here...the front page theme was LIBRARIANS

Favor in Return

I finished an assemblage ring from yesterday's favor box. The star is perched an inch off the ring itself..cute and commanding at the same time. I like it that way!

Do Me A Favor?

I was so sad to miss Mary's Valentine-Making party this weekend...but, lucky me, she saved one of the favors to give to me! I thought it was the most adorable idea and wanted to share...a candy box filled with sweet treats for making Valentine cards. I am already thinking thinking of different ways to use them...

Rock Candy!

Finished a tray of pretty baubles for the Exchange...these were really fun to do. (I had fun finishing off the chocolates to use the tray, too!) Working on a couple more things...

One Ringy Dingy...Two Ringy Dingy...

I am so excited about what's going on in the studio today! I've been wondering what to do with all the quirky buttons and beads that aren't quite right for the bookmarks I am currently creating. I started making a ring for my sister-in-law the other day with some I am on a roll it seems. I did a line for the Exchange called "Rock Candy"!
