Now, this dress was a VERY happy find. I loved the pink polka dot fabric and picked it up without even looking at it. I often cut up old clothing for the fabric. Anyways, got it home and thought... hmm this might fit me - and it did! I am not a small girl and cute vintage stuff never fits me, so this was a big score! and it was only $2! I also found a few pretty brooches:
Yesterday when the power was out I made a few things:
The first picture is a little collage made on recycled cardboard. I covered it in patterned paper, affixed the pink lace around the bottom, freehand cut the birdie out and attached with pop dots. Then I added some pearls and flowers :) just a little something to pass the time. The second two photos are of some pretty little ear studs - paper*cakes will soon start offering accessories! These are the first of the lot.. and you better bet I am keeping quite a few for myself!
This arrived in the mail for me yesterday:
From the ever lovely Elizabeth of Creative Breathing. Now I have one more craft to add to me E pile! hehe.. not that they are in a pile. Previously, Elizabeth sent me a very special embroidered heart, and a dutch girl pegdoll (because I am dutch!). She sent another pincushion to Chelsea Ann too. Please go read Elizabeth's blog - she posts great stories! And finally... a photo of a couple of notebooks that I recently picked up.
I'm SUCH a sucker for all things paper, especially notebooks! I love to make lists.. I just love writing on the unspoiled paper - lol :) The pink notebook is to make a little art journal about myself and my likes right now.. some self exploration. I don't know if can see the writing on the cover, but it reads "today I had a conversation with my true self. She asked me why I had abandoned her, why I had ignored all her constant advice. And then she reminded me of all the things I had forgotten. And never once did she say "I told you so".
That's all for now! xoxo
