Creating For Friends
Hope you had a great week so far. It's getting close to the weekend, yay for that.
Just want to show you some things I have been working on for 2 of my friends. The cones are for my friend Martha. She is a wonderful artist, and makes amazing vintage charms, and has a lovely blog. If you haven't checked her blog please do.
MJ Ornaments. I just mailed these today Martha, hope you like them. Martha and I did a little trade, charms for cones. She wanted something in the cream and white family. She says she is obsessed with the white right now. Hope these work.
Now for my friend Jean, you know my friend that lives in Rhode Island. She asked me if I had ever decorated flower pots. I said I hadn't, but I was willing to give it a try.
She wants them for her Palm Sunday/Easter table. Two matching pots in Easter colors, with chicks. I happened to find these two buttery yellow pots at a recent garage sale, brand new with the price tags still on for, drum roll..... $1 for both.
How could you go wrong, and it kept me from running around looking for the right pots. I used old Easter postcard images, glitter, sheet music, and Easter grass. They were shipped and arrived in one piece. Jean loved them, and they were just what she was thinking. Which is always good for me, I love to try out my psychic abilities.
These two projects were quite fun, and I had the freedom to do whatever I wanted.
Well, you all have a wonderful weekend!!
We are suppose to get more rain, which is great for the Spring flowers that are starting to bloom.
Chat again soon.
