The best thing a gal can do when shes stressed out with worry?
CREATE PRETTY STUFF thats what!
So thats what ive been doing this past week.
Pretty things will always make me smile :)
Some of these are headed for my EBAY store but feel free to email me if you are interested.
This Christmas i am really into beautiful Wreaths (i am yet to make one for myself though...) and i love sitting down with all my 'fabric and bits and pieces laid out before me and just letting the creative juices flow.
Here are 2 of my latest Christmas Wreaths
This first one i just love, probably because its so pink and soft. I couldnt resist the fabulous green ribbon, it's so sparkly!
I went for more of a Vintage look here and used my beautiful Mica Flakes. Then i made a rosette with some old lace and adorned it with pretty paper roses. It's very Victorian looking dont you think? Mum has already ordered one from me :)
Then of course theres my fabric Bon Bons that were so popular last year. They are purely for display purpose only and they look soooo pretty arranged on the table at Christmas Time. I used my favourite Paris Bebe' fabric and another vintage style fabric that i have totally forgotten the name of ( Note To Self: i must really keep a list of them with samples).
A very pink and glittery NOEL sign. NOEL doesnt always have the ' above the E, but i decided i should with this sign because i kept looking at it and thinking, how many men Named Noel would want a sign in pink and silver glitter? LOL Hence the use of the ' .
A new creation to add to the list....A Vintage Mica Flower Pot. Simple yet sooo pretty. I have it sitting with my Mica Wreath at the moment and they look so pretty together (no Shannon you CANT keep them).
The other day i was really feeling down in the dumps so i made myself something just for me, to cheer me up :)
I have adorned this heart shape wreath with Mica Flakes and added pink paper roses. From the bottom hangs a lovely crystal thats very special to me as it was part of my birthday prezzie from my dear friend
This way i can see it every day. Thanks Julles, luv ya.
Ok thats it for the 'pretties' ,for now anyway LOL
Lots more going on in my head, just have to find the time to create them all (hmm another 12 hours at least in the day required).OH and to find some Painting time too!
A another CHEERY note.....My Scampy Cat is back home and looks to be doing ok. Lets hope it stays that way hey! Thanks again for the well wishes for him, it meant more than you will ever know. Scamp sends kitty cuddles too.
LUV and HUGS
