"P" is for Paige

My baby girl, Paige, is especially excited about this project! I created this letter "P" for her room...

When I began planning this project, I knew I wanted a piece she would appreciate for a long time. Something she wouldn't want to pack away with her stuffed animals as she grew up. That is, IF I decide to let her grow up ;)

I began by applying vintage Romeo and Juliet pages...

Some Vintage Photo ink and a paint-stamped harlequin pattern (in pink, of course!)...

This ruched fabric inspires me to make something wearable, lol! Maybe a wrist cuff or a bib necklace??? Hmmm...Next time!!!

A little tulle and beading...

I love it! Shakespeare, flowers and a little something pink...what girl wouldn't???

The Finish Line

New Year, New Projects to tackle...or at least there will be---as soon as I FINISH some old ones!

Here's the first in a line of projects that I officially declare finished!!! Now it's a thing of beauty---not some shameful reminder of my inability to finish things, lol!

This cute little carrier is actually a repurposed drink holder. Perfect for carrying some handmade ornaments that my children made for their Nonni and Fa's tree.

I just LOVE this custom fabric flower! I'm actually kind of addicted to fabric lately...Look for more posts on fabric tinkerings coming soon.

Here's the back...and yes, that is Webster's Pages paper (Winter's Wings). Thanks for asking!

This chipboard butterfly is adorable! I edged it in German Glass Glitter and the brad is reminiscent of a vintage broach.

Now onto the next project...See ya soon!
