My Craft and Sewing studios, have been a mess lately, as I have been very busy making crafts to put into the "Country Store" within the fair, (Clark County Fair) I have been making pillows galore. I will list what doesn't sell in my Etsy Shop after the fair is over. Some are simple, without any lace or buttons on them, just images and no trim, and others are very embellished and all those have vintage lace and buttons on them. Some are stuffed well and others are suppose to be limp. Most all the crafts I do, I like to try and do a French Vintage look. Don't know how many people around here like that kind of decor, but we shall see, and I sure like it! I love getting feedback from my blogging friends. What do you think?
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!
