Time seems to be going bye in a whirlwind....busy with Easter, family, projects and work. Time to enjoy the weather, life, friends and seasons. Getting away for a little break with girlfriends and Spring. Remember to enjoy the simple things in life...they are the Best!
I received my Easter Egg carton from my partner Mercedes Scott. What a nice surprise! My carton was filled with pink vintage goodies...I loved everything! I have to say the vintage card and millinery pin were my favorites. After a really nice Easter with family and loved ones my swap package was a finish to a wonderful Easter. Thank you so much Merecedes

Well I have been busy with swaps and creating at the studio....also we had a lot of fun playing dress up and an Easter Parade. To see all about it hop on over to my cousin Corey's blog at willows95988.typepad.com or Tongue in Cheek
In my Marie group we were to make 3 small mini bags filled with small trinkets for
our partners...Debi Hunstman, Loraine Beaumont, and Mercedes Scott are the ladies I gathered for. It wasn't hard to fill the bags with goodies, but having to enough room. Sheesh those bags were, well mini! Can't wait to see what treasures will arrive in the mail...
I can't believe Easters almost here...I joined Cassandra Vancurren's Easter Egg Carton Swap. My partners were Merecedes Scott of All Things Pretty and Lisa Campbell of Dolliesdaughter.typepad.com. We were to take a small egg carton and gather vintage items in pastel colors. This was so
Fun gathering items for to my surprise I gathered a little too much now I can't close my cartons oh well. Hope you ladies like you goodies and Happy Easter everyone!
Last evening we went to Chico to visit Nantucket for a special Soirée in honor of our cousin Corey Amaro of Tongue in Cheek. The was a marvelous gathering, lucious goodies and eye candy galore. Corey you were amazing! She spoke and answered questions about living life and blogging and adventures of brocanting in France so glad we were able to attend it was a special treat
I have always wanted to make an Altered
Art Book...mixed media. I had the opportunity to do a swap with my partner Terri Gordon. We were to take a book of our choosing and remake a cloth cover and transform pages with paper, textiles laces and images of Marie. This was one of my most challenging and favorite projects. It pushed me beyond the usual and help me create beyond my comfort zone. I have to say I was very pleased with the outcome. Terri is was my pleasure and pure joy and a labor of love. I am already starting on my next book!
Today was a rainy Saturday....saying inside by the cozy fire sounded so good.
I worked on my Paris Wall Pocket project from the Marie Antoinette group. My partner Melanie sent me a gorgeous box full of pink and cream supplies. Beautiful crocheted doileys laces and trims. I decided to make it a bit larger with several rows of pockets to hold my treasures for creating. I am ready to start on another it was such a great idea Debi Hunstman thanks for hosting. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
