PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF...
I'm late to Vicky's party!
Metrotel had a city-wide internet outtage and I wasn't able to get online for three days.
That's part of living in a third world country.
One more reason why it's good to be moving back to the good ole USA!!!
I'm participating in a Grow Your Blog party and am supposed to tell you a little about myself.
In the interest of not boring my blogging friends to pieces,
who already know way more about my open-book-self than they want to,
I'm keeping it short and sweet and giving those that want to look,
Here are a couple other links that will show you a good variety of my art.
The pictures I'm showing you today are of my latest project.
I thought I'd make some Valentine Brooches to put on Etsy and for gifts...
and after cutting a couple hearts from surface designed fabric...
I thought to myself..."Hmmmm, I can use the negative space of this for collage".
So after much playing and layering,
it turns out that most of the brooches have a little pocket
that can be used to house personal items, jewelry, mail, keys, etc.
The pockets have hangers which can be hung from a hook, doorknob, car radio knob, dresser or cabinet knob...whatever.
I've used vintage laces
and bits of broken vintage jewelry on them
and I put a pinch of lavender in each heart.
I really love the way they turned out.
I'm giving one away to one of my followers...
but the catch is
that I'd like you to leave a comment on this post to be in the draw.
If you're an old follower and you've already made a comment there, you're name is automatically in the hat.
I'll be in the States as of Thursday!!!!
and will close the give-away offer February 1st.
I'll have to have your email or blog address, so if you're a no reply blogger, make sure you leave it in your comment.
And thanks. Thanks so much for growing my blog. You...my online friends...are a huge, important part of my life and I love you dearly.
Create Your Life,
