You're the Best


Just wanted to pop in quickly and show you a card that I made using one of my fun new buttons from Pinque Peacock.  I knew I would LOVE using these Farm Fresh buttons when I first saw them.

I thought I would start the month off right with a bright and joyfully colored card of thanks, realizing my color choices are totally out of season!

I have all but abandoned this blog over the last month due to work and life craziness.  I finally put down the keyboard (I work in the IT industry) and decided to take some time to let my inner artist free.

So, last weekend, I took a Clay Monoprinting workshop at a local artist's studio and LOVED it.  I knew I would, because I took the same workshop a couple years ago, except I took the one day version.  Mitch is truly an inspiring artist.  And so helpful.  He's very eager and willing to spread what he knows on to others.  He isn't having another workshop in my area until next year, but I just know I will most likely sign up again!

Below is one of the prints I finished.  In comparison to the last workshop, the prints I did this time are so much more fun.  Now, I have to figure out what I can do to make this a regular thing!  But I have no space left for any more art supplies! [I know I am not alone, right?!]

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend.  My husband is doing the New York Marathon, so we're off to the big city for a little fun!

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
