Joy Banner

December 9, 2016

Today, I am sharing a fun and easy project using beautiful ribbons, lace and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon, vintage buttons and sheet music.
I adhered the sheet music to the wooden joy banner.  Then added dimension using paint and glimmer mists.  Once dried, I added Juliet Lace and vintage buttons.

This is a easy and fun project to put together to decorate your home.

Wishing you a creative day, sweet friends. 

Holiday Traditions and Memories

Our home shines bright with holiday traditions and memories. We have a mixture of handmade and Keepsake ornaments that decorate our house for Christmas.  Each have their own story to tell and each year I try to document a few more stories.  

Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.

Follow Your Bliss Journal - Part 4

December 5, 2016

During the holidays, I find myself seeking time in my studio.  To create not only for my friends and family, but also for myself.  I took more time to finish a few more pages in my art journal.
So many wonderful vintage images, ephemera, quotes and photos.
And more importantly, the memories.  Memories of vacation trips.
Memories from rose bushes planted after our bonus mom passed away.
Artwork that speaks to my heart and created with my hands. 
And photos of special people in my life.  

Thank you for allowing me to share a little of my life and artwork with you, dear friends.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge - Winter Holiday with Ribbon or Trim Theme

December 2, 2016

Today, I am joining the Really Reasonable Ribbon Winter Holiday Ribbon Challenge.  When I think of winter, I think if shimmery white fallen snow.  
I created this winter Christmas greeting by using the Glitz Christmas Assortment Ribbon and Molly White Crochet Lace,
I glued the Silver Snowflake Charm on the ribbon.  To add more dimension, I used the White Bead Berry Spray Cluster.  I took off the green leaves and added glass glitter on top of the beaded cluster for a dusting of snow effect.

Now it is your turn to create some winter holiday project using beautiful winter colors and ribbon.  Link it up over at the RRR Challenge Blog.  

I can't wait to see what you create!

Follow Your Bliss Journal - Part 3

December 1, 2016

Do you enjoy art journaling?  
I find that it gives me the creative freedom to not follow the rules...
To put things in places just because I love them. 
Like this beautiful vintage ribbon wrapped around cardboard...  I thin it is beautiful just the way I found it and wanted to add it to one of my journals. 
I also like to combine many different elements...
That's why my art journals never close very well.  They are filled with lumpy goodness and never lay flat.
But the wonderful thing about them is the document my life, my family's life and those I care about. 
Have you tried art journaling?  If not, give it a whirl.  You might just find that you fall in love with it.

Wishing you a creating day, dear friends.

Country Christmas Memory Folder

November 29, 2016

Hello sweet friends!  Today, I am sharing a homespun Country Christmas Memory Folder.

I enjoy using beautiful country and vintage inspired lace, ribbons and images to document our holiday memories.

I used the Cotton Blend Holiday Snowflakes Ribbon, the Debra Natural Crochet Lace and the Baker's Twine Cherry throughout this memory folder.

The great thing about the twine is you can easily use it to floss your buttons.

Wishing you a wonderfully creative day, dear friends.
