Just a few things I've been working on ...

I've got a busy couple of days (well nights) working which doesn't leave a lot of time for creative musings. Truth be told it doesn't leave a lot of time for much of anything. But I thought I'd drop in and show you a few things I've been working on this week.

The first is the mixed media piece seen above. I've been so inspired by all the folks in my Flying Lessons course that I decided to give mixed media a go. I have *absolutely* no idea what I'm doing. Zip. Zilch. Zero. But I'm having a grand time playing around with glue and fabric and paper and wax.

And the second piece is custom order vintage camper applique:

I really enjoy sorting through fabric scraps and buttons and watching these campers unfold. And the creating helps to soothe that ever present desire for the real thing. More camper creations can be seen in my Etsy shop.

Making these items has added a much needed playfulness that has been lacking in my life. I do declare it's about time to have some fun!

And now, speaking of fun, I'm off to remove tennis ball parts from a dog's stomach. Dogs are, in one word, crazy.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Dogs are indeed crazy. But so wonderful. And I really like the idea of using fabric and other materials to make something unique and fun. Do have a wonderful weekend.

How are you liking the course? I thought about taking it but thought I'm just not quite there yet. Obviously you are. Love what you've been doing and your Etsy shop!

I Love all of the color you have on your blog and in your life! That's been my project his year, to bring more color {literally!} to our life.
