Coming Up Roses

Today I am sharing what is probably my most favorite project to date.

I had been spending lots of time on Pinterest, trying to find that "one" project, one so inspiring I had to try it myself.

And voila! I found one. A paper flower table top Christmas tree.

Not one project has ever been so gratifying in my crafting endeavors.

ALL the roses, I hand rolled, (no store bought premade flowers here, lol) every single one, ALL
122 of them, I made myself, and even custom hand dying a few.

A very basic store bought, Styrofoam cone, transformed into a thing of beauty, that will grace my entryway table this holiday season.

I hope you enjoy the beauty of it too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Flowers = Happiness

It has been a good couple of weeks since I last posted. Received unexpected news, that a  cherished friend from long ago, had fallen ill, and passed away. Needless to say I have gone through all the emotions, and decidedly poured myself into creating.

In this time of great emotion, I discovered a  couple of new skills. Hand dying cardstock, and creating flowers with it.

These are just a few examples of the beauties I have finished. And I discovered that, Flowers=Happiness.

Hope you enjoy!  And thanks for stopping by!

"In Dreams"..... Canvas Shadow Box

I enjoy stepping out of my "comfort zone" in creating. With this project, well I had never used a canvas in an "unconventional" way. I so love the results.
