Design team project for my sweet friend Esme's on line store.

This was such an enjoyable project to put together. I altered this faux book box as a design team project for my friend Esme. Her store is over on face book and it's called Crafty me Tilda shop. I got to play with all this gorgeous goodness. I sent the box full of goodies to my sweet friend Wanda and I'm sure it will be right at home in her shabby craftroom.

Butterfly garden journal.


This sweet little garden journal I put together for Mary, a coworker of my hubby's. She's started a butterfly garden as a project for her and her adult daughter to work at together. I thought they could document the progress here. 
These acetate butterflies have been with me for ever waiting for the right project. I used pieces of scrap fabrics that I keep for this sort of thing, and any excuse to bring out the sewing machine. I added a little yellow pinwheel as a book mark. I keep a journal for just about any subject, from baking, sewing, art,  projects and of course plenty of garden journals. I just LOVE journals.

Tiny junk journal for Crafty me Tilda.

This sweet little journal I put together with some gorgeous goodies from my friend Esme's Facebook store. I used all the little hand out pamphlets from church. Once I read them I hate to through them out, they're small and uniquely folded, perfect for this little project.   I so miss my scrapbooking and paper crafting. There're  just so much I want to do and I end up doing not a thing. It's like all the projects are in my head but I can't seam to get organized enough to get started. Well, for now I'm enjoying these little quick projects.

Sweet little vintage glass bottle.


I found these beautiful vintage glass bottles when I visited my sister in Alabama a while back. Of course they were not this clean and sparkly looking, actually they were nasty and dirty. I soaked them over night in a soupy water with vinegar and I had to use a tiny brush too. So worth the work to get them clean, cause now I get to play with them. This one I made for my sweet friend Wanda Contreras Pagan     . I love this lady, whenever I'm creating something I think of her, because we like the same things. I also altered a hook so that she could hang it from. I'm sure this will fit right in her lovely craftroon.
