spending time in my studio


I have been spending plenty of time in my studio creating up a storm.  I love it when the creative juices are flowing and you actually have time to turn your thoughts and ideas into handmade lovelies.

If you follow me on instagram you have seen pictures of the cuff bracelets I've been making.  I haven't had a chance to take pictures with my big girl camera to share with you here but they will be coming soon, I promise.

In the meantime, I wanted to share the second project we worked on at the Valentines Day Makerie last week.

Isn't this little banner adorable?

This project has my name written all over it.

All the little doo dads and embellishments...

pearls and lace and flowers and glitter...

love it all.

I wanted to take a minute and thank you for your words of encouragement.  My intention is always to get back to everyone who leaves a note but that "dropping the ball" syndrome kicks in and I get distracted.  After reading all the comments, I know you know exactly what I mean.  I realize there are so many other blogs to visit and the fact that you stop by here to read my thoughts and look at my pictures is so appreciated.

I am heading back into my studio to do a little more playing work.  I am planning on re-opening my etsy shop on February 1st and I have lots of shelves to stock up. 

I hope you have a beautiful Thursday!

xo, Patty
