Hello to all my crafty friends out there.  Hope your all getting ready for the three day weekend.  I'm looking forward to some crafting time.  Can't wait.  Today I'd like to share a super easy flower that I've made.  I found this terrific book called Creative Bloom, by Jennifer Swift.  he has some amazing projects made with wire and fabric. You should try and check out her book.

I used bailing wire to create the flower.  It was fun to make and didn't take too much time. I hope you all have a great weekend, and find some time to be creative.  Happy crafting.

Good afternoon everyone!  Hope all is well with all of you..  Today I'm excited to share one of my earlier projects.  This is a collage that I made a while ago that I just love.  It's been such a long time that I made this that I can't remember how I created the paper doll.  It could be a rubber stamp, or maybe a pattern I downloaded off the web.  I'm sorry, but the older I get, the worse my memory is.  If you saw my craft supplies, you'd understand how hard it would be to locate the stamp I may have used.  I'm sure some of you can relate!

Anyways, this is the very first collage that I ever did.  It's pretty simple, but I just love all the pink in it.  The skirt is just torn scraps of paper that I glued on at the top only, so the bottom is loose and free flowing.  She's holding a beaded flower in her hand.  I hope you all enjoy this latest beauty.  Happy crafting!!!  Oh, by the way, happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there.  I hope you all get to enjoy the day with friends, and loved ones!
