Tis The Season To Collage.

I love collage even more during the fall and winter months. They are my favorite times of the year. Call me crazy, but something about the hot weather being over revives me. I love the smell of the wood stoves burning, seeing the colorful leaves falling, and the brisk days. I am happy to be able to live in a place where I can truly see the season colors. When the snow comes, the little that I get, maybe 6-7 days a year, I am like a child waiting for Santa. I get up many times, through the night to see if it's here yet. I know those of you that get tons are cursing me now, or are surely thinking me nutty, but I am a former So Cal girl that had never seen snow fall before moving here so bare with now!
Now back to collage, the real thing I intended to talk about today...

Switching Gears

It's that time of the year when things really get hectic for me. Shows, stores pulling at me, Etsy, classes to be taught, and so on. I never seem to start early enough. I guess I could do Christmas all year and never really have enough. There's just something about working on Christmas in 100 degree heat that doesn't get it for me. Ya know?
Here's some of the things I have been doing. Some are on ETSY in both shops.

Vintage yo-yo's, poker chips, old buttons, some rhinestones and other trims will make some beautiful fabric flowers. great for embellishing or making into pins as I've done here. Enjoy!

Baby Mia Watches History Be Made, Binky And All.

My polling place reminds me of Mayberry, It's an old VFW Hall, and every time I walk in it, I think Mayberry. For the 30 years I've lived here I have always felt like that for some reason. I just don't know why. I even voted on a paper ballot with a marking pen.
