I'VE BEEN HAVING FUN.........

........Making things for my shop. I love how these garlands turned out! At a thrift store I found a huge box of manilla folders. After cutting them down to size, i was able to run them through my printer, printing on both sides, and cut out my figures. The great thing about manilla file folders is that they seem to be a tad stronger than card stock and already have a cream color. So far I have only designed an angel and a dove, but have other designs in mind.


Also, adorning plain, down pillows with crochet and fabric flowers and leaves. I love how childlike and naive they look. They seem to be appealing to ladies of all ages.
