i am totally challenging myself to use what i have on hand. be creative. make it pretty.
this is a repurposed cabinet card. the actual picture was either missing or used elsewhere. i have a whole stack of them.
this one became a birthday card for a wonderful friend. she is the kind of girl who appreciates the unique, handmade pretties that are fun to make and share.
the little girl is an image from a business card or ephemera bit shared by hope at paper relics in a swap. she is featured on the web site home page over there. i put her on a little pop out for extra happy.
it was seriously just what i needed to get me back in the groove and thinking about Christmas!!!
we were placed in groups of 4 and we were each asked to create 3 different ornaments to send to our partners. cassandra placed us with girls who had similar likes, which made it easier to create.
i sent my new friends a cheerful pink chenille house, an elegant pearl and lace fabric Christmas tree and a burlap frozen charolette angel, complete with a bell....you know, "everytime a bell rings an angel gets her wings".
so much fun! and the packages i received?!? LOVELY!!!
trisha, who might have the best blog name ever, sent these goodies!
so sweet. AND sparkly!!!
this little felted nest is darling. look at those tiny glittered eggs!
this paper rose covered ornament is completely intriguing to me. i LOVE it! She rolled the paper and brushed the palest of pink powders along the edges. it's soooo pretty. thank you, trisha! (i'll be begging for a tutorial on this beauty!)
