La Petite Lapin

No I haven't jumped off the face of the Earth..I am here...barely...but I am just about ready to pull my hair out...I believe my problem is that I have WAY TO MANY projects on the go...WAY TO MANY things I want to try!!! & WAY WAY WAYYYY not enough time to do them, learn them...perfect them...Yay Yay...I know it is my own fault & you have heard it all before...ya I know you are all in the same boat...a very full boat probably...ready for capsizing...full of creative folks jammed bow to stern with creative ideas bursting out of their heads...crying, "Save me from my creative self." O Ma Gawd! Hurry throw me a bouy, I think I mean life jacket...mayhaps a boy would be better...but my husband wouldn't approve...

A tattered & torn wee rabbit for your sewing room

 Available for purchase Febuary 1st on the TDIPT Mercantile website. A hand-painted wool felt rabbit with glass bead eyes, chenille stem feet, needle felted sheep's wool tail. Last but not least..I have given him a tea stained ribbon to adorn his little neck. The cushions he is perched on are made of aged & stained primitive linen & quilter's cotton. "La Petite Lapin" is cross stitched on the top cushion in teeny tiny letters...a couple of raggedy patches, an antique metal button & black stitching can also be seen around the edges & on the bottom of the cushion. This piece measures 6.5 inches at its widest point & stands 5" inches tall from the top of the rabbit's ears to the bottom cushion. It is a wonderfully old looking piece with charm & character a plenty & would look great sitting in amongst your antique collectibles.

It Takes Allsorts To Make the World Go Around

Here's to an Artistically Inclined New Year

I have been obsessing about Bassets Allsorts Candy for months now...I even daydream about the dang things...not to eat them...but I could incorporate Allsorts candies into one of my projects. 

I love the way they make me feel...Happy...Happy...Happy...The design possibilities are endless...

so I went on a little shopping spree.

I bought some Polymer Clay in Allsorts of juicy colors...yummy...

Splurged on a set of Martha Stewart Microbeads & some handy dandy Glitter Glue...Fun... soft the brightest shades I could find... 

& last but not least...some French General Fabric...sweet velvet ribbons, thrift store seam binding which I stained & wool felt, colorful pins & a few picks of Valentines Day embellishments...

I am ready to play...& chase away...those January Blues...
