ok, just for happy.

have you noticed that this wonderful world of blogging hosts some very kind women? after my very first swap with some Christian artists, (the joy banner) i was invited to participate in a surprise project for miss linda, the texan, by one of these kind online girls. (i seriously have to learn how to link up.) anyway. linda's son is getting married, so we put together a little mother of the groom banner. several girls sent a pennant to this sweet mastermind, and then she sent it on to miss linda.

it was great fun putting together a little treat for someone i've never met!

while i'm on the subject of oooh-la-la-love, here are some well wishes for some friends who totally ran off and GOT MARRIED! how cool is that, anyway!?

i was inspired to use these little index cards after i saw jodie's project at the silver bella pre-party somewhere in texas! (stink. i so have to get this linking thing down. i promise to work on it.)

happy day!

away in a manger...

i picked up this bright red house for miniatures at our local gucciville. cheap. i think they were totally popular in the 80's. do any of you remember them? anyway. i'm putting together some pretties for my art show, and needed a "home" for a set of matchbox advent ornaments.

for this set, i used the scripture readings from the back of an old hymnal that focused on the Christmas story. there were exactly 25 verses, so...perfect!

each ornament is embellished on the outside with bits of lace, or little pretties, and a vintage bingo marker. there are different images inside of each one.

happy day!
