Kaffe Fassett Pencils
I am making a "kirt" tonight for my almost 2 year old. Her big birthday is tomorrow. She loves skirts, or kirts as she calls them. This is one of the fabrics I bought and it seems fitting since she is the youngest artist I know.

I think these are so fantastic. The vivid color is refreshing. And I like her story. The artist is Michelle Armas, based out of Georgia.

I recently was looking at old pictures of my little girls nursery. Well, now its her room, 2 years ago, it was her nursery. Same room, different name. I got her inspiration from a necklace I made and I wanted to walk down memory lane before she turns 2!

Baby Blanket

Friday, June 3, 2011

I made a darling baby blanket for a friend having a baby boy. While this doesn't scream baby blue boats or stripes, it is a happy marriage between mama's tastes and this precious baby boy. And lets face it, we like it!

New necklaces

These are new Long and Lean necklaces. The coral and brown I had to keep because I liked it so much. But the other two you can find at Chrysalis. Beauts!

For this party, we had family over and dined on shrimp and salad for supper. I hung cut out circles from the ceiling, festive and to represent underwater seawood. I painted the mermaid for decoration and had Camille's photo taken in front of it.  I used a Florida shaped cookie cutter to make the cakes. I just happened to have one on hand! I hung lei's over the back of the kids chairs and used a fabric remenant for the table cloth. The balloons added a fun punch to the entryway to the dining room. Loved it!


I am into the chevron pattern these days. Partly because in a lot of my rooms in my house, I have exhausted all other patterns and the chevron is new and fresh! Actually, I am working on a green chevron coverlet for our bed. I am still trying to piece it all together. But here are some great uses of chevron thanks to and
