Abducted by aliens; returned home at last


Okay, so it wasn't really aliens. Just been at the "down" end of the seesaw for the last several months. But the tilt is headed in the other direction now.


After participating at a few craft/gift fairs this Fall, I have items left over that I really want to sell. So I've put out a flyer inviting folks to come by my house on Saturday to check out my stuff and hopefully BUY!




These are my "Heavenly Princess" canvases, evolved from a class I recently took. Christy Tomlinson offers a "SheArt" class, which I took because A) I love her messy and spontaneous style, so different from my own, and B) Christy is just so darn cute!

Each canvas has "Princess - Daughter of the Heavenly King" somewhere, along with an inspirational saying or Bible verse. No Princes yet, but they're coming!




You can see my Vintage canvases here, and here, and here, and here.




 



The canvases shown above are 6x6; those below are 6x8. The sides are finished, so no frame is needed.




The next canvases are 8x10, followed by 6x12.




I also made some wreaths out of pages from old hymnals. I had seen this style of wreath online, but not made from hymnal pages, so I thought, Woo-Hoo! I've come up with something unique! Not so much, it turns out. A friend told me she received the same type wreath, made from hymnal pages, as a gift. Oh poo...

But they're very pretty, even if I wasn't the first to think of it! And I really like that they can be used throughout the year.







This is a close-up of the paper rose in the center. I said bad words while I was making those roses. Lots of bad words.

Anyway, this is just a sampling of the wreaths. There are 12", 17" and 25" diameters, with one or two rows of cones. The color is from spray glitter, which is sealed and will not come off on your clothes, floors, furniture, pets...

Until next time, hope you're enjoying a wonderful life!

  2. PS--I'm glad your seesaw is tilting up; I personally ride the hormone roller coaster.

    It's generally NOT a fun ride!!
