Hello Friends!
Hope all of you have had a great week!
Here it is Wednesday again.....I think
the weeks have just been flying by!
I want summer to drag on.....PLEASE!

Here is what has been on my desk for many months.
This domino book was made for a very dear friend.
She inspired the theme for this book (Birds&Bees) because she 
had bee hives and the most beautiful 'bird'
Christmas tree I have ever seen. 
We only get to see them once a year now that we
have moved to Ohio and they still live in Texas. 
This book has been done for awhile but I am just now
getting it packed up to mail.

 Here are my pages all laid out and ready to sew and glue.

This is the front of the book all done!

 Here is a close up view of the bee hive and branch
I stitched. I used all vintage lace on this book.
 Here is the full view of the pages all done.
This is the back of the book. 
Making these tiny domino books are my favorite
thing to do! 
Yes- they do take a while.
I get a theme in my head and I just cant stop till its done,
each one seems to tell a story of its very own.
So happy I get to share them with you! 
Thanks for the visit!

Go check out Julia's desk
and all the other WOYWWers  
Hope your week is a creative one!

Quick share

Just a quick share of my Tea-Time ATCs
Here they are all finished and are about to go in the
mail to Kimberly @ Art Joy Stuff to be swapped.
So excited! I love to make anything that has 
to do with tea! 

So now I am going to go turn on the TV
and enjoy a lovely cup of Earl Grey Cream Tea
on this wonderful Sunday afternoon 
with my sweet husband!  

Have a creative week!

Happy Spring Everyone!

For some reason I signed up for a large amount 
of swaps for April & May. 
(There goes my bi-polar crafting again!) 
Oh well they've been fun swaps
and I've needed the diversion 
while waiting on mother nature to find
her Spring! 

 This is an ATC Tea in the garden themed swap.
I pulled all the stuff I thought I wanted to use.....

Here they are all done!  

I love to make anything TEA themed! 
Please join Julia and all the WOYWW'ers
to see what they are up to this week!

Have a CREATIVE day!

Today is a Confused 'Mother Nature Day'
We had 3 inches of snow the other day AND it is
supposed to be 60 tomorrow......sigh

So here is what is on my desk today.
 This is the beginning of my altered matchbox
for a swap. 

Here it is all finished and ready to be packed up and
shipped to its new home! 
Hope you have a very CREATIVE week!
to see what everyone is up to this week!

Hello Friends!
I have had a busy creative crafting week.
For some reason I have periods of time 
that I don't do much in in my studio room but then
I work like a wild woman and make up for it!
Maybe I am a bipolar crafter?
That actually would explain a lot!
My friend asked me to make her some cards
so today I made 25 easy cards; 15 for her to send
 when she needs them and 10 for me.
I got to use my sewing stamps, my chairs 
and chandeliers (just some of my favs!).
The cards were already printed heavy cardstock,
 (I only buy them when they are 1/2 off 48 cards with envies),
I just added the middle square outside
 and the inside sentiment.

Sometimes I just need it to be easy and CUTE!
Hope you can go visit all the WOYWW'ers
to see what they are up to this week! 
Hope you have a crafty week!
