changing season creations

I am loving this weather!  It’s always so refreshing to be comfortable in jeans and a tshirt or sweatshirt outside, and it’s perfect for furniture refinishing.  This piece we came across at our favorite church flea market, which I mentioned a few posts back. We had been on the hunt for a buffet, and this happens to match in a quite extraordinary way to the china cabinet that we got from the salvation army a few years ago.  Can’t wait to give this a good sand and polish it up!  We are planning on white for the top and sides, and sanding down to the natural wood grain for the front.  I’ll post progress photos as we get working on it.

The most recent invitation that I’ve done, for my lovely cousin Molly.  She is accenting a very classic black and white wedding with tiffany blue and an eggplant purple, which I think will be so elegant. I loved the different elements here, especially my new baker’s twine & metallic teal ink envelope calligraphy!

This is a sneak peak to something that I’m working on for my fall and holiday shows.  I’ve been making felt ornaments for a few years now, and thought this year that I’d create designs to coordinate with some of my more popular prints.  I plan on selling them as a packaged set, with some sort of gift wrapping. I will post more of the combinations next week.

Still keeping up with tiny little baby creations.  This one was knit from a (free!) pattern on the lion brand yarn site. I attempted making this after being inspired by the adorable blabla knit stuffed animals.
