The holidays are coming to an end, and I have to say I had a great time with family! It was the best! BUT, I was beginning to have creativity it really feels good to start making things again.

 Of course it just feels natural to me to root through my vintage goodies, and combine them in ways that work and feel special to me. Each and every piece I make comes from my soul, it means something . I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday, and I look forward to sharing a wonderful New Year with you! Thank you always for visiting, you are all special to me.

 My good friend Dorthe, of Den Lille Lade, recently sent me the most beautiful package, for absolutely no reason, a random act of kindness, and to brighten my day! She is so generous, kind, and good hearted, and I love her to pieces! Above, you can see the doll she sent me, in her pretty white doily outfit. She is gorgeous, and I adore her. If you don't know, Dorthe is a dollmaker extraordinaire!!  I have her lying on the most beautiful pieces of wallpaper that she sent along with it!

 Here is the card that Dorthe made. I am so in love with this card, the vintage girls...I think me and Dorthe, with the beautiful white deer, the lovely star , and all the texture details....sigh....

 Here is another fantastic piece Dorthe made, a Paper Whimsy image on a collage of fabric, buttons, textures of all sorts, so many details, it's yummy! And look at the beautiful vintage paper she was wrapped in!

She included a bag of leaves from her yard on the Baltic Sea, I can smell the ocean from here! This will be fantastic journal pieces. She had wrapped it in a cellophane bag adorned with a petite cross, I love it.

Also included was a lovely piece of fabric, napkins, images, and last but not least, a whole bunch of love! Thank you Dorthe, you have touched my heart, and I am grateful to have you in my life. Friends are the best gifts.

 So, like everyone else right now, I am crazy busy, and entering panic mode as for being ready for the holidays. I keep telling myself to stop making things and start wrapping, cleaning, etc, but I just can't seem to let go yet. These are some recent projects. I still have a few items in my etsy shop if you are still shopping.  I know I am!
Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate your taking the time and I am always thrilled to hear from you!

 With Christmas fast approaching, things are beginning to get chaotic, so I instinctively I seek out ways to 
de- stress, and here you have it.  Express Yourself was created with Character Construction stamps, and  little bits of scrumptious vintage papers, and collage elements. Journaling really gives me a sense of peace.

On the flip side, I am working on jewelry and ordered these gorgeous ceramic leaves from a Canadian artist, and when I received them I was instantly in love! I am not a winter person but the snowy look they have made me think of frosty icy mornings...all quiet and still. 

Thanks for visiting and taking  a peek! I love to hear all of your comments, and appreciate your visits.   Wishing everyone a great week!
