Last week I won a blog contest that Caroline held. I know Caroline as a fellow Make Mine Pink friend:) She lives in Southern England and I love reading her blog posts and talking with her on the forums at Make Mine Pink. It sounds like such a beautiful place to live. Her work is beautiful down to the last detail. This is a rose scented sachet that hangs on a door or a knob. The applique work is amazing. It smells wonderful. I love the tags made me as well. I have been collecting these tags from my friends and I cant seem to part with any of them. The make great bookmarks:) Caroline has many talents and you can visit her blog at http://www.caroleecrafts.blogspot.com/.
I have been pet sitting this weekend and have been away from home, plus the regular 9-5, but I have managed to get a couple things done this week. The cupcake pillow was a house warming gift for a co-worker. They are making her daughters room very special and I thought that this would go nicely in there. The cake pillow is a smaller version, but it is fun. I think the most time consuming part is hand stitching the roses. I can see why people pay good money for them at Joanns!
Well, stay tuned, and I will keep you posted. I am going to be making some changes in my apartment. I spend nearly all of my time in my spare room that I have set up as my studio. Its getting too small and I have come up with the crazy idea of turning my living room/dining room into my workspace. I will have a small sitting area with the TV, but the rest of the space will be all work area. Its not traditional by any means. I live alone and well, why the heck not??? I think I will be much more productive being in the living space of the home. The TV and the kitchen will be there as well as all of my books. I plan on doing this in the middle of September. Until then I will be packing up, organizing and tossing anything I dont want anymore. I am buying some pretty red cabinets and a red three drawer dresser to store my fabric. I will have to have the internet moved and clean the carpeting too. So, I will have my work cut out for me and it will be a huge job, that once in the middle of I will be wishing I never started it. But in the end I think this is a good thing for me and my creativity. I will keep you posted. :)
