I was lucky enough to meet up with some very good friends this weekend. There is a long story behind it and I will not bore you with the details but Sandy Camarda, Lisa Kettel and I have a little Charlotta history. When we all met, I surprised them with one of three "Charlottas" (not really frozen Charlotte but a bisque head instead.) I ordered them on eBay and decorated them all up. They even got a little “tramp stamp” tattoo on their back shoulder of a creepy, yet sassy little spider.
It was a fun project and the best part was the look on my Charlotta’s faces when they opened them up. Now we each have one to remember the others by.
I gave the orange ones to the Charlottas they were much more Halloween-ish and kept "Miss Green" for myself.
And just take a peek at the sweetness I got in return!
The adorable one on the left is a little mouse lion tamer from Lisa and the spooky-ookey one on the right was created by Sandy. She says "Charlotta was bewitched"
I love them both and they have a special place in my home reserved for the finest of fine homemade art.
More soon on last weekend when I was so fortunate to join with creative souls for sweet Kim Caldwell's event:
I have been to Solo again and every time I go, I find something wonderful, a treasure of some sort to brighten my home or a gift for someone dear. here is the little gem I found and could not leave behind... isn't she sweet?
In other endeavors, I have completed my "Under the Big Top" Swap page. This swap is being hosted by the ever talented Wanda Clark for Silver Bella this fall. I was not going to sign up because it didn't sound like my style, but it was a fun challenge and as always in art, I learned a few things.
Here is a sneak-peek at my page. I used some old Rusty Pickle Circus themed paper, a meri-meri clown that I shrunk waaaaaay down and re-made (fifteen times!!!) because he only came in a huge size, and painted and glittered some hat pins.
I am really excited to see how this whole thing turns out. Wanda is making the covers and binding them all together and will deliver them to us in November... oh goodie!
I am a midwestern girl who loves my family, crafting, wide open spaces, good country music, and great big old oak trees (preferably with a tire swing!). I believe that we should strive to be positive lights in this world. We should not be so fixated on what is wrong around us but more focused on what we can do to make it the best it can possibly be.
