you need to run...i mean run...over to Red Velvet Art Kit Club and order this kit. The girls put together all the goodies you need to make this fabulous design board and fabric covered push pins. so cute and lots of fun to play with. and now i have this fun little board to hang in my scrapbook corner. makes me happy :)

happy sunday.

Friday, July 13, 2007 i joined this journal swap over at SIStv. the rules were you could make a journal or send your buddy materials to make a journal. so being as busy as i have been i figured i would just send all the goodies. well then i found out my swap buddy was someone who totally inspires me on a daily basis...kerry lynn. i love how she adds vintage items to her pages and her style is just amazing. if you haven't seen her stuff...check her out. anyways...when i found out i had kerry lynn i knew i HAD to make her a journal. so here is a peek of the journal i made her. i used old book covers and bound them with wool fabric and vintage feedsack material. i mailed her package already...when she gets it i will post the whole thing. i absolutely love how it turned out. hope she does too :)

finally able to take a breath

coming up for air.
literally and figuratively.

this last week has really
been crazy. been working
on deadlines, and watching
kids :) but today is finally
a down day. a day off to just
lounge and play with the kids.
my asthma has really been
bugging me this past week too.
getting harder and harder to
breath...had to go for a breathing treatment last night. finally able to take
a deep breath without coughing.
feels really good.

here's a pix of drew from last week...showing me his beautiful leaf he found :)

happy wednesday.

it's all about my love for fabric! In fact, i've issued a challenge this week over on the streetWERX blog to use some sort of fabric or stitching in your art. I've been wanting to make a fabric book for a while now and took this opportunity to do so. I just love the digital collage images from LazarStudioWERX. I picked one of my favorites and printed it on muslin to use on the cover. Used a variety of different stitches, some stamping, and lots of my favorite ribbons and trims. Added a few eucalyptus leaves and some other ephemera and its complete. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!
