The sign at the top was sent to me by my
good friend Kristin at Signs and Salvage
for hosting the Fall Intrigues Basket
swap. Check out her fun vintage blog, and all
the great little signs she makes. There is a sign
for everyone there and every occasion.
Thanks so much Kristin. The next owl is one
that I made for the YOE (year of enchantment)
swapper spots partner for the month of October.
Owls were the theme, so I came up with this Sleepy owl.
I also framed this little gem for my partner.
Then I made this little owl which actually hides a key inside. It was fun coming up with some owls for the swap, and then they were sent off to Australia, where they don't celebrate Halloween, so none of my owls were scary ones.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
