I love to repurpose clothing I find in the thrift shops, like that lovely blue striped chambray shirt. I used lace and linen embroidery thread to create my eight legged companion. The other pictures are some I have taken over the last week that just seemed well suited to this post.
This year I will be sharing with you a collaboration between one of my very first blog friends, elsita and myself. This will be all about the big adventures of two tiny paper cut birds. They will travel with me where ever i happen to go, along with my camera and I just know along the way they will have great adventures and fantastic photo shoots. The adventure started in Mexico.
Sometimes the pictures will speak for themselves ( or should I say chirp for themselves) and at other times there will be paper feathered stories to unfurl.
When I saw the posted pictures of the casa azul at night I was a little home sick for mexico. Funny that you can feel so much at home in a place after spending only a week there. With geninne's permission I wanted to share a some of the pictures of her wonderful home through my eyes ( and lens).
yummy, geninne's chilean version of shepherds pie. I wonder if she does delivery:)

My deepest thanks go out to all who purchased something today from the crafting for courage group. My little shop of stones and pebbles sold out in a few minutes after listing. I will be trying to add some more items to the shop next week. For now I am going to take a little break from my online life, get together with friends and family and recharge my batteries a little.
Here are some nature filled photographs I have taken recently.
My items will go live at around 12 o'clock eastern standard time. There will be covered sea stones, missing pieces stones including the ability to have one custom made for you or someone special. This also marks the introduction of the first natural dyed hand crocheted bamboo stones. These are amazing!!!
these ones were dyed with teal, brazilwood and logwood. Please check out all the beautiful hand made articles on the blog.
can't wait to fill up the pages with experiments!!
Hope springs eternal is what this next photograph of my garden reminded me of.
Oh and last but not least a little preview of a few of the stones I have made for the crafting for courage sale in my etsy shop that starts on thursday. I will be unveiling some extra special pebbles tomorrow.
