It's Been Awhile.....

since posting here. I am so caught up with my first and foremost blog "A Scrap Mom's Musings" that I practically ignore this one. I do apologize. Once I get a bit more organized (yeah, right!), I'll be posting some crafty items and ideas here. I'm perusing the web, looking for inspiration from other crafty blogs. I'll be back.......Promise!

Found some Great Stuff!

I found some items at Marshall's today while out shopping and can't wait to be able to purchase a few things in order to alter them for sale. Found some great hatboxes, a mini mannequin, some great frames---just alot of items that are nice without being altered, but I know I can "dress them up", repurpose them for some great decor. I wish I had pics to show you. Most of the items were vintage style which I really like. I'll keep posting with my ideas.

Two of my Bunny Creations

Thought I'd share some of my own soft doll creations. I made these several years ago and love them! I love stitching up these bunnies and seeing the finished product. The "lanky" bunny has hand painted shoes with quilting thread for shoelaces. She wears an underskirt of mauve calico and a dress of blue calico and flowered fabric. She's also wearing a faux pearl necklace. Her face is hand drawn with quilting thread for whiskers. She is a one of a kind. The other bunny wears calico pantaloons, a blue calico dress and an apron to match. Her nose and mouth are embroidered. Her eyes are created by using the French Knot. These bunnies are for sale on my Etsy site.
