Valentine Swaps

One of art groups met last Wednsday evening and our swap theme was hearts. I received this bunch of sewn hearts from a friend at another meeting, so I decided to try my hand at sewing my own. I have to say going around the hump is not that easy when your not a seasoned sewer. LOL

I wrapped mine up in tulle and put a tag on each of them. I had to make three sets!

They came out OK.

Here is what I received back from the swap. Check out the canvas with the heart on it. The heart is made with rolled up tubes of paper! Wonder how long that took? But it is oo cool! Love the purple and white heart with the spray of jewels coming out of the top. Very creative!

Look at these cards! The cupid one is just gorgous! Wonderful way to use the bingo card.

I had to share this. It is the saying on the inside of the bingo card. "I love you with all my butt. I would say heart, but my butt is bigger." So funny!!!

Ready For Paper Cowgirl & Fun New Decoration In Studio

I spent all day yesterday finishing up for Paper Cowgirl next month. My class is full and I am so excited!! Look at all these kits!

These are the door prizes I made and packaged up. I just need to get some tickets for the students to write their names on and me to draw from.

 These are items I have packaged to sell during or after my class. Trims and wool.

 Look what I got!! I have been looking for a vintage baby bed springs for so long. A friend and I were in McKinney on Friday and found it. My husband helped me hang it today. I added my little paper ball lights to it. It hangs over my desk in the studio.

House Mouse Card For March

This cute card would make a wonderful one for a new baby. The mouse is sleeping on a pussy willow flower branch. I added stickles to the flower centers to give the card some sparkle. Vellum is over a pattern paper and a little sheep button is attached to the ribbon. This turned out great but I will say it took some time to cut out all the mice! I had help though!! Thanks to my friend Mary!!

Canvas Art & A Glass House

I signed up for Donna Downey's Canvas Create class. It was really fun. Here is my canvas for January. Of course I copied what she did but since I am not a painter, I learned some techniques and had a great time making this. The picture really doesn't do the piece justice. Go check it out here

For my birthday in December I had ask for a container to put some of my handmade wool felt crowns in. Look what a fabulous glass house I received from two friends! I put it on my kitchen table for display.

 I decided it needed something in the bottom. So I shredded some music paper then put in the crowns.
I also included two birds, but you can hardly see them in this photo. One is cement color and the other is blue. There is a book box that one of the friends had made me along time ago, and I added it too.
