Happy easter to you ! I wonder if you are like us and take the opportunity for some quiet time at home. Resting and reflecting.
We had our family celebration on Thursday night with all of the children and grand children here for a lovely get together. I spent all of yesterday recovering !!
I've tried to spend an hour or so in the studio each day. I've been struggling with pain and mobility more than usual these past couple of weeks but keep pushing myself to do something.
I have a very dear friend that owns a french gift shop in the city and she has commissioned me to make shabby vintage style gifts, cards and home decor for her store so doing a little each day keeps the wheels turning in the studio.
This one is a sewing inspired hanging plaque with lots of vintage goodies embellished on it including a very old lace doily on the background.
These are so much fun to make. I have made quite a few of them now.
I've also been making some elegant style greeting cards. I find the whole process of card making very relaxing. It's quite a portable craft so I can do it from bed, my recliner or in fact in the studio itself.
I have to stop myself from over embellishing each one as some people like clean and simple.
This one is my favourite I think - I have a thing for glitter.
This one is so elegant
And this one so pretty
Today we popped to the shops for a few necessities and swang by the local op shop for a look see. This is what I came home with.
2 gorgeous tins for 50c each
Some lovely linen fabric and some white cotton with embroidery accents
And all of these mini plates. I have a few ideas for all of these so lets hope the motivation holds long enough to get them done.
