Another sampling…

Nov 18, 2008

I have received several emails asking if it is to late to sign up for my workshop… no, it is not. The last project will be posted November 28th and I will leave the workshop open until December 15th 31st. This should give everyone time to complete the projects, print out the many downloads of vintage postcards, greeting cards, templates and copy any recipes you might want to give a try this holiday season.

Weekly projects are posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I also have weekend projects which are posted every Saturday. In this workshop there are a total of 15 projects.

Jul 5, 2008

The buttons run all the way down the front of her skirt and look so pretty when the light hits them. I think the little bird resting on some mother of pearl buttons looks as though she is telling a few of our family secrets.
