I have been so busy lately that I have really neglected posting on the blog here. I decided recently that the site needed a major overhaul, something simpler behind the scenes and that I could do it myself fairly easily and quickly. HA! The project ended up being a little more time consuming than I thought. Add in that I decided to do this while prepping for my first ever craft show and well. . .
On the bright side though, I think the site overhaul is looking pretty good. I have a few more photos to add and a few more tweaks, but otherwise it is almost done and I think, looking pretty good.
I have made a few new things lately that I haven’t shared here yet so I am going to try to work really hard on getting back on the blogging bandwagon and photo sharing.
First up, a new Fairy’s Love Note that I call Paris Poppies:
If you haven’t seen me post about these before, I will explain what they are. Fairy’s Love Notes are heart shaped velvet sachet filled with lavender. I embellish them with ribbonwork flowers and bits of vintage goodness.
For this flower I used a mixture of pearl stamens in cream and blue in the center of one of my ribbonwork flowers. I think this color of ribbon, called Abalone, might be my very favorite!
Each Love Note has an attached fabric tag book with mulberry paper pages inside. The thought there is that you can give the Love Note as a gift to someone special and write a special sentiment inside. The tag book has a velvet cord attached to it so that when you pull it it draws the book closed. This Love Note has a gorgeous blue iridescent rhinestone button at the end of the pull string. The front of the tag book is embellished with a vintage image of the Eifel Tower printed on fabric.
I particularly love the cream ribbon on this one. I salvaged it from a very old baby bonnet that was a little too loved to save as it was.
