{lots of fun stuff}

I've had a busy past few days. Been spending a lot of time being creative. I made some felt and button brooches for my Etsy store and I really hope someone decides they just can't live without them. :) They are really fun to make and I have a few more in the works.

I also made a really fun invitation for a Mother's Day tea that I'm having for my Mom and my Mother-in-Law this year. I used clip art for the tea cup and adhered the paper to chipboard to make it more substantial. The lace inside the cup is from a doily I cut up (also used on the brooch above.) I printed the inside using a free font I found online.

I've been Etsy crazy lately...finding all sorts of treasures to make my own. This is one of my favorite is made from vintage hankerchiefs and can be used as a sachet or to store a variety of small items. I'm still trying to find the perfect spot for it in the house.
Not sure what tomorrow holds for us, but we have a ton of things to do around the house...painting, cleaning, yard work. Hopefully the weather will be as beautiful as it was today!
