I’ve been crazy busy today, trying to make up lost time from this past weekend. A bad cold laid me low for a few days, seriously cutting into painting time. This coming Saturday and Sunday, March 7 and 8, I’ll be at Funky Finds!!! Please come and visit my booth, #119, directly across from Mary’s Madness in booth #217. I’ll be there from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Hope to see you there!
The last few days have been quiet. My love has the flu, so I am tip-toeing around, trying to work and be as noiseless as possible. Here is what I’ve been able to do:
A couple of specially decorated spice jars filled with heart shaped confetti. The confetti in the blue jar was punched from playing cards, the second one from sticker sheets. These may never leave my shelves, as I can see so many uses for the cool shapes.
I found a stash of small old pimento jars and will be decorating them as well.
Found these great ceramic tea lights and fashioned the wire hangers/handles. The irregular holders are very organic in design, and with their new handles, they are darling! Again, I may have to keep a couple of these for myself.
I have been clearing off my desk top, making space for a sewing machine. As soon as that is set up, plenty ‘o stitching will be goin’ on! Join me here again tomorrow with the latest installment of the heart chronicles.
Ideas swimming through my head. One for a banner that I’ll have to dust off my sewing machine to finish. Another for a display fixture I need to get pieces for. I’ll take pics and show them both to you later. For now, feast your eyes on this:
Lots of twisty wire, mat board, paper mache.
Now I will clean off my desk and set up the sewing machine, after a hot cup of coffee. Thanks for looking!
p.s. Notice the heart in the center? It is from my day of paper mache making. Watch for more of these hearts making their way into projects!
