Just a few things around my craft cottage. I took more pictures, but I won't bore you all at once, I'll bore you with the other pictures another time!! Ha ha!!! I got the box with the lady on it at a garage sale.

A nice cup of tea is one of my comfort foods. I like it with cream and sugar on a cold day! I've been working on a series of tea cup wall hangings. I call them "Cup of Comfort". I'll be showing more of the wall hangings on this blog as time goes on. I bought the doilies on this wall hanging at a antique store. Yes, I cut the blue doily in half. It was hard to do it, but sometimes we have to make sacrifices for our art!!!

My dear friend Lesley who lives in the UK loves the movie"The Wizard of Oz" . So when I saw this fabric at a quilt store, I knew I had to get some to make something for Lesley. I wasn't sure what I was going to make, so when I was looking through one of my favorite magazines "Cloth Paper Scissors". I saw this little fabric book with a fabric envelope for each page, I knew this would be perfect. This way I could put some little gifts in each little envelope. I really like it and plan to make more of them. She sent me an e-mail telling me that it had arrived on her birthday and loved it!!!

I know that Christmas has come and gone, however I have not posted on my blog much. So missed putting anything on my blog last Christmas. I had made two Christmas Cards that were very special to me. They are similar but different. I just really wanted to share them!!!
I took an old black and white photo of my older sister, older brother and myself playing in the snow. It wasn't the best picture, but it was the only one I had of us in the snow. We didn't get lots of snow in West Texas. I scanned and printed it. I took some pastels and gave it some color. I added fine glitter to highlight the snow. I made some crepe paper rosettes and added glitter to them and some embellishments. I made one for my sister and one for my brother. I think they really liked them, because they were so personal.
