Luck of the Irish Blog Hop


Hi There Hoppers!

Thanks for visiting me today.  Today is my day to share a project with you as part of the Pinque Peacock Blog Hop!


It has been happening all weekend...started on Friday, so if this is the first you heard of it, you might want to start at the beginning to see all the lovely projects the team of artists and creators have to show you!  Click on the button above to go the Pinque Peacock blog post for the start of the hop.  You will definitely want to participate, because there is a great reward if you do!


You can find out how to qualify for the gift on the Pinque Peacock blog!

I realize my two projects aren't exactly "Irish" or themed to the upcoming St. Patty's Day holiday, but this is where my muse took me.

First, my card features one of the Pinque Peacock stick pins.  Isn't it lovely?  Here's a close-up.


And my second project is to hold my Pinque Peacock stick pins and buttons.  I made it from a jelly jar, fabric, and pillow stuffing!


Well, thanks for visiting me!  Next up is the wonderful 


Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

 
I am also submitting this to the current "Oldie but Goodie Challenge".  The challenge is to use bright colors.  This challenge is also good for using something in the card that is at least 6 months of age.  I used several items that I've had for at LEAST 6 months:
  • The Pink ribbon
  • Green button
  • "Thanks"

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
