A Very Special Cross........

My goal each year is to try to create at least one special memory for my daughter.  Sometimes it's a garment or handbag I made her out of special fabrics from her childhood and other times it consists of a sign with a saying that is unique to the two of us.  

This year I was inspired to create a very special cross for her wall of crosses she started last year.  This piece is very special because it uses old belts from her Papa George.  Although he was not my daddy, he is the only grandfather my baby knew, so very special in that regard.




I shared this finished piece on Facebook, and much to my surprise, it went viral.  After over 1,000 shares and 150,000 likes, I realized I had touched on something.  Whether it was creating something out of nothing or the fact you could make the cross so special by using a special person's belts, people loved it.

You can see I never expected anything like this because I shared it laying on junk from my studio and with the rubber bands still in place.......but still, it was a hit.  

I hope you love it as much as other's have!!

YOU & ME and Altered Couture


Canton First Monday is this coming weekend,
so I have to be ready for the next upcoming holiday....

Which, of course, is the day of love....

VALENTINES

I didn't have the time to do much,
but was able to get these sweet pillows made before
my sewing machine just decided to go wacky on me...



I also received my artist copy of the February 
Altered Couture magazine.....and it cheered me up a bit.

I'm excited since I am published again.

I just love it when that happens.

It can happen for you, too....
Just meet their requirements and send it in.

It won't happen unless you make it happen.

Try it.....it feels good :)

Thanks for stopping by....I love it when you come!
