I haven't made a crown since sometime in the Fall. I know, you are probably thinking, isn't that like, what you do?? Sadly, no. As I am sure many of you can relate to, when your supplies get cleaned up for events like Thanksgiving, Christmas and company, they sometimes take a while to get put back out again. I have the issue of what they call "no place to call my own." That is, I do not have a designated crafting area, where I can keep my supplies out at all times. If I ever get to a point in life where I have a studio, believe me, no one but me will be allowed in, and I am going to go crazy in there with crafts and decor. Till then, my dinner table will be a disaster area, on and off. At least I have moved from the dining room floor to the table. I am moving up in life, no doubt!
This little number was a new crown that I did a week or so ago, as a donation to my former High School's Art Auction. This is the second year I have done a crown for them - it is fun to see my work back at the school.
I have been playing around with lace doilies a lot, and paper petals. I am really loving the dimension and texture they both give.
Reminds me of sherbet on a warm day...
It's a sweet little piece, and I hope whoever won it loves it as much as I do!
By the way, I must announce the winner of the Valentine's Day giveaway! The very lucky Amada from Over the Top Studios is the winner of all the goodies! You should check out her work, it is very impressive. Just the collection of supplies she must have, alone, has me laughing at the work I do. Thank you everyone who entered, I wish I had money, I wanted to send all of you that package! Much love to you friends,
