A cold, clear, crisp Saturday morning here in MN. I guess we should feel lucky--everyone else is getting the snow and terrible weather this spring and, besides the cold temps, we have had a really mild one. Hope my friends out there in Blogland have fared well through some of the terrible storms last night. I was happy to find a new batch of shadowbox frames, and a couple new old magazines--so I've been having little collage fun in between sewing bags! Here's my newest--just listed in my ETSY shop . I had a little fun with this one and the colors of the 30's! Ginny--of iSew--sent along some cute feedsack quilt squares with the last monkey I ordered from her (yes, she DOES spoil me so!) and I used some of them for the background of this fun little collage. Add in some cute images from a 1952 pattern for doll clothes , a fun vintage button, trims, and other doodads--and frame it all up in pink polka dots! yeah! Click the pic and it will take you to the listing :o)
Speaking of Ginny--she has her shop iSew, where she sells many wonderful things that she sews (see how cleverly she ties that name in there LOL!) and recently opened up the MonkeyTravelClub --where she sells all her fantastic little monkeys! Oh, I love them all. Purses, gadget holders, cup huggies, keychains, and other cute-as-heck monkey things! You know what else is fun? She has a Flickr site where people who buy a monkey from her can take a pic and post it there to show where the monkey has travelled (see--another clever tie in! lol--bow to the queen!). What fun! I had to submit this pic--it's my poor Hannah--she is a cup huggy and I use her to protect my fingers from getting hot when drinking my favorite cappuchinos. I am fasting cappuchinos for Lent this year, so she has been just sitting on the shelf above my computer--happily biding her time until Easter! lol She is in good company though, with the pretty little decoupage ornament I got from the lovely Aggie of Pareo on Etsy.
I recently passed a bunch of new milestones--blog visitors, hearts on Etsy, and sales on Etsy--and am going to do a prize drawing!! Yes! Tune in tomorrow--I should have the details figured out by then. Have yourselves a great weekend and take good care! Blessings!
