Icicle Doll

Once again I am addicted to these things. They are very fun to make. I like that I can make them with out making a big mess. I also like that can incorporate some things that I have collected over the years...Beads, Vines, Branches and odd supplies.

Icicle Doll

This is a different look than my first Icicle dolls. A little brighter and with more playful. It will be making a journey to France for a swap. I hope she will be well received.

She looks a little flat or dull in this photo she has a little more depth in person.

Wet Felting Flowers

I have wanted to try to make these for years it seems but it is always good to have a friend with you when you try something new. Here is one of the flowers that Leisa made while she was here, I think she made 6 or 7 flowers while she was here. We have improved the directions and found a few shorter ways to get the desired results. I think Leisa has a new addiction to return home with today.

Mini Holiday

My Holiday friend has been here for awhile now and we are having a great time. Lots of good food, laughing, adventures and creativity. I will post more when she goes home later this week. I do not want to take time away sitting at my computer while she is here. I will have a lot to post soon...

Home is where the Art is

I finished my triangle banner finally. Wow! that took longer than I thought it would. I enjoyed every minute of making it except for the 4 times I ripped out the border on the first one I made and the 3 times i re-beaded one of the circles. I wish you could see the colors in person the beads just don't translate well in photos and you can not get the true colors to come through on the computer screen. The colors are a little richer looking and the sheen on the silk is a lovely addition to the feel of the banner, you just cant see that in a photo.

I am waiting to see how all the banners from the Triangle Banner Swap hosted by The Amazing Sara turn out. I have been watching their progress and love all the different triangles being made. I will love to see them all finished and have gotten so much inspiration from seeing all the creativity being shared on the blog.
