Bonnets Are Beautiful

Today I spent lots of time taking care of some much needed problem solving. So settling down thinking about what I should share with you brought me to a vision of delicate bonnets. One of the first things I created for my little girl to wear home from the hospital. A bonnet is truly a must for a little girl. Once you place it on her little head you see a little flower in bloom. So here are a few bonnets I've created and wanted to share with you. So if smocking is something you would like to do, I encourage you to start with a smocked bonnet.

Beads of fun!

I enjoy learning. I recently learned how to make beaded ornaments. Beads are great! I like the texture and color. So I'm sharing a pict with you of my latest ornament. I good friend of mine taught me how to create these beautiful creations. I met her when I taught her how to smock! You never know what someone else can share with you. So make sure you share with others. I do.

Permission Granted

Ok, I have given myself permission to play and to get to blogging. It may not be what I ultimately want to call my own but it's a start. After reading an article in "Artful Blogging" by Leah Piken Kolidas I decided to not be so hard on myself and go ahead and share. I had pondered doing a paint over technique and finally just put paint to canvas. I also used stamps which have always intriqued me. The stamps I used are by Stampin' Up!. Well I have posted!!!

Digi Scrapbook layout

I've recently been trying my hand at some Digi Scrapbooking. I found and purchased an online class. It was a great investment. Very easy to follow and learn from. So here is my first try at a Digi Scrapbook Page layout. This features me and my daughter.
