It has been a wild week! So many things have happened!
But more on that in a bit!
It's Rebecca's Birthday!
So...to celebrate, I am linking up with her to show a few things I have been working on as Christmas Gifts!
But here's the catch! I can only show a few closeups of the piece I just finished...
because the recipient...
reads my blog!!!
I made a cream linen lumbar pillow and did some tone on tone embroidery work using vintage lace pieces
there is also some beadwork...
here and there a pearl or sequin
This piece is complete and (hopefully) on it's way to my dear friend today
I hope you can't guess who it's for (or she can't guess!) hee! hee!
I have been pouring soy candles again as well...
All of my candles are made with 100% soy wax and cotton wicks.
I love pouring them in old glass pieces
Old goblets and small compotes are my favorite!
I also have been pouring some in vintage wine and sherry glasses!
I then add the fragrance . I use only natural essential oils from a company right here in Indiana!
I blend them together to create my own scent...one that I hope will be my signature fragrance
It has done quite well at the store in Tipton!
I have been making some paper cones!
This one is a grey flocked damask with paper doily trim!
I am filling it with candy and using them as place setting gifts at Christmas!
Well, that is what I have been doing in my studio this week!
I do hope you pop over to Rebecca's and wish her a
She is such a precious person and dear friend!
So...as you know from Rebecca's give-away announcement post...
My Computer crashed!!!
We are talking absolutely and totally!
After spending hours on the phone with the tech...
A tech was sent...twice...with all new insides!
Yep! I lost everything!
It's basically a brand new computer and all my programs are yet to be reloaded!
but there is a silver lining!
We had 5 days left on our warranty...and everything was FREE!
And...my youngest son...arrived home last night
(The Navy allowed me to see him for the Holidays!)
He and hubby are recovering what they can from the old hard drive!
I got so desperate to access the internet this week...I was using my wii system!
I even took a picture or tow to show you!
|I left a comment on the post Rebecca did for me!|
I wanted to see if I could send email too....
I had no idea how addicted I was to my laptop...until this happened!
Are you as bad as me too?
Well...I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
I am going to let my hubby and youngest have my laptop for a bit and I...
Am returning to my studio!
Until next time....
