A Perfect Match


I have had this painting for quite some time.  I love the colors.  But I have had the hardest time photographing anything in my apartment.  There is never good lighting, try as I may.  The yellow and green background are brighter and it is a happy painting.  It goes with my new colors I remodeled with.  I love the citrus tones.  

Not too long ago I found this fabric at Joannes. It is a HGTV Home Decor fabric and I fell in love with it.  Again with my lighting issues these photos are a tad brighter than it really is, but once I got it home it was amazing to see how well it matched this painting. The painting has some teal in it and there is the same teal in the fabrics.  Not a normal color combination but I keep getting drawn to it.  So I am making a few accessories for the living area.  It feels so good to be creating again:)

I Remodeled This Summer

Wow it is September, and this is a very good thing.  This is officially the busiest summer I have ever had.  I have missed blogging, sewing and anything creative.  Though, it has been worth it all!  My boss bought a new building and we had the BIG move to make.  Moving an office is not a job for the faint of heart.  But more on that later.... I also went through a remodel in my apartment. In hindsight it would have been much easier to move!  I had to move everything out of my bedroom and studio so new carpet could be put in. Then everything had to be moved from the rest of the place back in the two rooms so the wood floors could be put in, THEN it all had to be unpacked and put away.  I did get new furniture and did some painting.  Now that it is all done I am ready to relax and enjoy the fall weather and holidays. Cant wait to start creating again.
This is my Bunny Hutch, the picture on the right is called "Fairy Thief" It was made by an awesome artist named Joanne May.  I won this print earlier this year and I couldnt wait to get this remodel done so that I could hang it up. 
Moving Books in no fun, but still love them, better than ebooks:)
