All at once

*Crop Circles spoiler* don't want to ruin sbd reveal? Stop where you are and bookmark for later!
Blogging beside these flowers from my garden,
and a homework completing Missy B.

I know, I know, I haven't been blogging. 

With being busy, yard sale preparation, and a stomach bug, I haven't sat with coffee in hand to type an entry. 

That doesn't mean I haven't been working on projects...

I made three yoga may bags (similar to this post) for sale.  
 I am working on simple mini albums to sell. 
They will range in style in price,
but I have yet to complete a full one (or take photos). 
Y'all know I work in stages. 

The Crop Circles "same but different" hosted by Kymberly.
 I based mine on the lovely work of Prima Artist Finnabair.
To make this I simply kept layering and adding pieces until it felt right.
Once I was happy with the arrangement, I gave it all a coat of Gesso.
The seed beads look fantastic, but were a royal pain in the neck.

 Once I let the Gesso dry (normally I heat gun to dry, but let it air dry this time) I added Ranger Distress inks and stain, Tattered Angels mists, and Smooch spritz. I blended and brushed the sprays, and even poured it on instead of spritzing in some spots.
This project is great for those misters that have barely enough liquid left to spray, but too precious to toss in the trash. 

My sewing machine has also been incredibly busy.
 Aprons for the kindergarten concert,
clutch wallets (similar to these, from this pin with alterations),
and Christmas stockings.
Have you seen Tim Holtz's Eclectic Elements?
Oh my. I want it all!
Can you imagine the purses, yoga bags, skirts, stockings, tree skirts, mini albums ...
I still have another day to clean
 and create before it's time to go to work again.
Hope you had a great long weekend. 



  1. Love it!! Just love the bags and the clutches! Oh and of course your take on the SBD!!

  2. Love the yoga mat bags? Any left? colours? Price? :)

    1. Thanks Tash! All 3 are still available. $25 each, the first one is actually hot pink, but looks red; zebra and bright blue; the last one is a light floral print. I need to make a few more.


Hey there! Thanks for visiting, I'd love it if you left a comment.
