Making up For Lost Time...


For a while it seemed I couldn't blog even weekly and now I find myself posting almost daily. But I really wanted to show you this paper doll by the very talented Kris Hurst. I wasn't fortunate enough to get one in the swap but I wanted to share with you and give you a link so you can visit the immensely talented, versatile artist. We sat next to each other during the Petticoat & Parasol art event and she blew my old lady support hose off ! I hope she shares her parasol on her blog with you because her creation was fantabulous. Her photo is used with her permission. Not sure I have permission to rave about her but oh well, I got freedom there LOL. Check her out at http://krislhurst.blogspot.com you won't be sorry you did. She was so inspiring to me.

Then I want to show you that I HAVE made progress on the beach themed wreath I was working on. Just a little bit more to add to it and then I will put it up in the shop or maybe Etsy. Haven't decided yet. Hopefully when it's done I will be able to get a photo of the sparkle!

My wish for you: A sparkly shiny day!

The Petticoat and Parasol art event sounds like it was so much fun! Would love to do something like this sometime! I went to a quilt show last month with a quilter friend and it was so inspirational and I don't even quilt!!!

I think the sparkly shiny day may come in the form of snow for us tonight!! Spring just doesn't know she can arrive in Colorado now!

bee blessed

Francie, You were indeed lucky to sit next to Kris. She is sooooooooo talented. I have loved her since last Halloween when I bought 2 of her Halloween CD's full of images! AMAZING! It was so nice to meet you at Petticoats & Parasols. Oh don't you wish we were back there right now? I DO! HUGS! Charlene
