My first painting was abstract using shapes of eyes and leaves, I wanted to start with something fun, where I could try lots of things.

That fabric pile on the sewing table it a little project I've got up my sleeve and I can't post any more about it so this will have to be it's sneak peeks for now.
This is a picture of the book shelf where I keep my rubber stamps and paper crafting supplies and the the wall above is where I put up pictures from my kids and other happy inspiring things.
And this... is a sad picture. I made these little cork boards beauties, mounted them on the wall of my craft room, snapped a picture and went on a trip. When I got back they were on the floor crumbling to pieces. oh well.

I found a pattern in a quilters magazine with similar fabric requirements (yardage) and decided to give it a go. For anyone who is wondering I originally bought this fabric to make a little apron like this one for my daughter, I bought way to much fabric and now I'm using it for my first ever quilt. :)

I've had the kitty themed fabric for a while now and I'm excited about making it into a quilt. I noticed the other day that I had a lot of black so I recently picked up the two cute gingham fabrics.
The only problem is that the adorable, shimmery, beautiful, turquoise gingham is polyester and and my neighbor (who quilts) said I shouldn't use it for several reasons; it'll fray like crazy, it's a loose weave, it won't shrink like the rest of the other cotton fabrics.... etc.
What do you think, what would you do?
I'm thinking that I may have to find something similar in cotton and use this lovely stuff to make a dress for my little girl.

Here is my fairy garden with it's new inhabitants and a magical clay mushroom, I planning to make more mushrooms to go in it.
These two I've had for a few years, unfortunately my 2 year-old got a hold of them not too long ago and I had to glue the little blond fairy's head back on and the blue fairy's finger is missing. This is their very first visit to my fairy garden. Though it's been around for a while the garden is usually sitting in a "touchable reachable" location and therefor the fairies only make supervised visits.

These past few weeks I've been looking for bedding for my three year old daughter and consequently I've looked at a lot of quilts and now suddenly I'm totally excited about learning to quilt. Craziness!
These first two I found at Cluck Cluck Sew she makes cute stuff.
Found this one (above) in a google search I saved the picture but not the blog I gleaned it from.
This last one is from pottery barn; and it looks as though a beginner, like myself, could possibly make it.

This is the card I made to go with it, if you look close you will see that there are three girls in the bed and the mama is holding the new baby boy (Mom also got me this stamp). The accent paper framing the image looks like black in this picture but actually it's a dark brown that matches the dark color in the fur.
