BEEN MAKING STUFF

I do have something to show for all the time I haven’t been blogging. It just isn’t easy for me to get on the computer and start writing. It looks like I left off with the Anne Brooke Tag Challenge a year ago, and at times, that certainly was a challenge. But I got a lot out of it and really enjoyed slow stitching. Since then, I’ve done other challenges for fun, travelled a bit, continued knitting and I’m always enjoying time with friends and my expanding family.

I think I’ll work backwards, beginning with the most recent pieces. I can’t seem to get enough of collaging, making little books, journals, tags and such. Too bad I’m not a writer for all the journals I’ve accumulated! These are some of the tags I’ve been making from old book pages, vintage bits of ephemera, images from old garden catalogues and books, photographs, sheet music, labels. Pretty much anything that has to do with paper I will glue down.

I’ll be back with more in the next few days.

New Note Cards & Tags

Dainty little sprigs painted with watercolors in all different shades of greens and blues.  I’m using these to make gift tags and note cards for my etsy shop.  Feeling very productive lately; art-wise anyway.  I haven’t even decorated for Christmas, except for a plain evergreen wreath on the front door!  Tomorrow maybe . . .Image
