Things to Share


Pillowcases
Originally uploaded by GroggyFroggy
I know. I'm nuts about my pillowcases. I don't understand it myself! I just love them. The colors make me happy. I think I have a quilt in storage that matches and will look pretty across the bottom of the bed. Hopefully we will get everything out of storage (it's been there for 9 years) in the next month or so. It will be like shopping. I'm sure there are things there I have forgotten about. I left without much when I left the house last year. When Patrick moved in, I had no furniture..NONE. He pretty much left everything behind to come here so we've really started off from scratch. But, gosh! It has been fun. We enjoy making it a home together. He ooh'd and ahh'd over the new pillowcases as much I did. lol He really loves things to look nice and enjoys the thriftiness aspect.

Ok...lots of things to share so I should stop gabbing and get on with it.

First up.....
Mooi This is my son Nick with the gigantic canvas he did of his girlfriend. This is going to be in a college art exhibit. He did it with spray paint. He made a stencil from a photograph of her. Isn't it awesome? She loves it.

Nick and Krista Here they are. They stopped in while they were on a date and we all had a fun visit.

LoveI got my package from Misseskwitty! Oh how I love it. It's all stuffed with bags now. I love the way she packaged everything.My etsy orderSpecial little MissesKwitty birdie

Closeup of yummy vintage button on doll This is a closeup of a vintage button on a doll I made for a very special friend. You're getting a sneak peek.April CloseupAprilHer name is April. (the doll, not the friend) :)

Love Collage Pinky CollageThese are two collages I worked on yesterday and today.

Today I've been playing with Tyvek. I painted some and I did a transfer on one with mod podge. It worked out great. I'm making a little quiltie or fabric collage with it.

Ok. I think that's it. I also made a little fabric bird over the weekend and thought I had taken a picture of it but I don't see it. hmmm. I have it hanging from one of my birdhouses. The same day I did that, I got the little birdie from misseskwitty and hung it on the other birdhouse over my table.

We picked up some paint, beads and a nice new huge bottle of mod podge yesterday so I have been playing and having a good time. I decided to try the matte this time and I really like it.

Have a great week everyone. Much love to you all.

Your son is awesome. He should sell some art on Etsy. He's also very cute. My 15 year old daughter thought so too.
