I’ve been a tad absent lately ticking things off my To Do lists. Because I’m more of a planner than a do’er, I had many containers full of planned out ephemera packs for my shoppe, some of them yeeeaarrs old!…and I got them done. I’ll try not to belabor this point, if you want to see my latest shoppe doings, just hit that button on yonder sidebar.
To the fun stuff…
A couple of weeks ago I decided I wanted to create a stash of flowers to work with, maybe it was the thought of spring being just around the corner. Doesn’t that sound wonderful, “Spring just around the corner!” I was “in town”, meaning a town that has a Hobby Lobby (all being over an hour’s drive) and we had a few minutes to pop in and out, so I grabbed a few more paper pads. Lovin’ the sunflowers, the pads to the right are older HL brand, luckily I grabbed two of my favorites before they were discontinued.
From my older HL “The Paper Studio” paper pads.
A bit of something I did in the evenings after toiling in my shoppe. This can be a bit tedious, but it’s a nice evening project in while listening to a book on Audible with your feet up.
Something I had in the back of my mind.
I wanted to see if I could incorporate flowers onto things, like trees, people, and…thats all I’ve got. But I knew I needed a selection of florals to work from, and now I do.
I left a little tuck spot for a journaling bit, this bird head seemed to fit the bill…pun! Ha!
Anyway, I glued a bit of ledger paper to the back of her, just enough to jot down a thought.
If you’ll notice, I punched holes in the tree with my binding machine, snipped the edges, and popped it into my journal, kind of like a Happy Planner page. I wanted it in this spot, but I didn’t want to cover up that deer, I have the plans for him.
Well, I hope you are as excited as I am to welcome back Spring, in the meantime I will be creating a few gardens with my flowers!
Thank you for stopping in,
Have a great week,
