Mid-January and dreaming of Valentines!
How is it possible that it is mid-January already?!
Things are so busy I don't seem to have time for creating, but I am dreaming of getting out the fluffy pinks and flowers and laces, and planning for Valentine crafting. Above -- some of the lovely printables I'm assembling.
And, while I typically only use vintage items in most of my projects, I've been drawn to the current crop of new embellishments, fabrics and other goodies out in the craft stores right now.
This is a gal I printed out on fabric, and I am completely smitten with, and inspired by, her!
She will become part of a special creation as soon as I can get to it.
I haven't been doing much thrift shopping lately -- lots of looking, but not a lot of bringing-things-home. Still, these linens called out to me -- a lovely, masculine linen guest towel with our initial monogram, and the little drawn work napkin on the left, which I think will make a lovely focal point on a future fabric journal page. Both were just 25 cents.
This McCoy tea pot that I found just before Christmas is my favorite find. I love this era of his work! I cleaned it up but haven't been able to put it away yet...
I just admire it on my kitchen counter, where it fits in so nicely, and where I never get tired of looking at it!
As far as the non-creative parts of my life, this is how I've been feeling:
And so, a bit of advice:
I hope that made you laugh as much as it does me!
