Archives for November 2010


We celebrated a very special birthday on Friday. Our fun-loving little girl turned four. Four! I messed up and forgot to schedule the post I’d planned to post on her birthday (couldn’t believe it this morning when I came online and found it still in draft form on my dashboard). So today I give you […]

Scandinavian style felt star card

It’s that time of the year again when I pull out the warm, fussy felt and play. I promised myself I wouldn’t make any Christmas cards this year, but since this felt star card (and its many sisters) started its life as a mistake made good, I think I’m excused.

Art, Heart & Healing: week 3, part 3- empathy monster

Meet Ziggy. He’s an empathy monster made for week 3 of the free willowing course Art, Heart & Healing. Apart from the zipper, I only used things from my stash, which was great. I love it when I can do that.

Art, Heart & Healing: week 2, part 1- wishes for little me

In week 2 of of Tam’s wonderful e-course Art, Heart & Healing we alter a board book in two parts. The first part involves creating an image transfer of our baby or toddler self and writing positive life wishes for this child self. I loved making this page. I had never made image transfers before and […]
