I have just listed my 'Chinoiserie Fabric Fish' brooch as a PDF on my Etsy. This is the perfect project to use those tiny little bits of precious fabrics you have been saving for something special! Inspired by a Chinese Baby Hat in my collection, Fish are symbolic for 'Abundance', 'Plenty' and 'Surplus' in China. Wear one of these pins, or place it in your home, and you will surely attract thse traits!

Whats a Fairy Flea Market? Well its a flea market even the fairies would love to attend! I'm cleaning and clearing and have found some treasures to sell. I've collected a few Vintage finds to tempt you as well as a batch of my older work that needs new homes. Once, before the new millenium, I actually made a line of small quilts, pillowcases and linens that I sold at local home furnishing shops. Most did sell, but the other day I discovered a few boxed away and now I am going to let you, my dear readers have first dibs on them. Take a peek in my Etsy store HERE!
Wondering what I've been up to the last few weeks? Well here is the start! I am slowly but surely converting my favorite and most popular classes into PDF's! Now my dear readers, no matter where you are, you too can take a class with me! The first one is for RELIQUARIES! I am so excited to be offering you this 34 page instruction PDF. Truly one of my most popular classes, and such a satisfying thing to create! LOOK HERE for all the details and to purchase!
The second PDF I have listed today is for my Day of the Dead Coffin Shadowbox, in 16 pages. Yes it is out of season, but I think once you get the basics down on how to create this wonderful little treasure box you will have the skills to make all sorts of fun boxes. Think little houses, or fan shapes, or even Easter Eggs... LOOK HERE for all the details and to purchase!
I have Valentines on my mind now, plus more full day class PDF's in the making. Stay Tuned, and Happy Wednesday!!!
I did it! The six tutorials that I presented at last weeks Tinsel and Treasures Show have now been made into PDF's and are ready to purchase in My ETSY Shop! For ease and convenience I have added the Etsy Mini-shop to my sidebar. Just press on one of the tutorial images and it will take you right there!
These first six are all 'small' projects, as opposed to my larger 'classroom' projects. Each takes about an hour to complete. The PDF's have been formatted to fit American standard letter size paper, as well as Universal A4 size paper. Each tutorial comes with detailed instructions with lots of photos, and beautiful patterns and images.
I can't wait to hear what you all think of them!!!
I've added a few Bat Babies to my ETSY SHOP! Easy to care for, and definitely lovable, they would love to find new homes...
p.s. I bought a new CAMERA yesterday, as my old one just couldn't give me decent close-ups or handle my 'menopausal shake'! Its a Canon Powershot SD790 IS in case you are wondering, and I am totally in LOVE with it!
I created this new papercut using vintage music paper, a wonderful old photo of a young girl, and deep dark red mulberry paper. It's mounted on a 10" by 14" canvasboard and ready to be yours! Available in my Etsy shop!!!
