Rainy Day Post

WELLLLLLLLL....is all I can say.

The weather we just experienced the past few days was just replaced with Wet, Chilly, and....

Wet.

Interestingly enough, our current weather forecast is serendipitous to the new challenge at the 3GirlJam Challenge! (remember, there is always a great chance of winning some really fabulous ribbon, but you have to play to win!...and I hear that there is going to be some NEW bundles available!)

So, that makes my bad hair day and wet socks worth it, don't you think?

The challenge is (and I'm paraphrasing!) to be do something rainy with ribbon!


Okay, so where's the ribbon?  I know.  Well, this is part of a series of paintings I am doing and one thing I enjoy doing when I price my paintings is to create a one of a kind tag to go along with the original artwork.

In comes the ribbon:


(and a sweet Pinque Peacock stickpin!)

So...there you go.  What you can do on a rainy day, with acrylics, a few palette knives, and memories of wading through pummeling rain on your way to a special (and fancy) event!

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
