Fallen...

When I created this collage I thought of a Fallen Angel.
I'm not sure why, maybe the mood I was in...who knows...
Someone so beautiful, with everything given to walk away from it all.  
Fallen.

There's something in her eyes that spoke to me.
Love Stricken?
Hurt?
 Affair?
Contemplation?
Regret?
Fallen.
There's something there in her eyes...
What do you "hear" when you "listen" to her "eyes"?
Hmm...

Today I Received a Care Package....from Germany!

 My Dear Sweet Viola...all the way from Germany...
 Sent me the most beautiful care package of hand dyed lace, fabrics, and papers...
a hand made tag with an "L" stamped on it (sweet!)...
and a beautiful photo pendant which is so very special...
Look at the stamped fabric trim....
It reads "Best Wishes!!"
I'm in tears!
(Tears of joy that is!)
Inside the stained embroidered wrap was the most beautiful fabric collage!
I can't stop looking at it!
Viola is so multi-talented! I love everything she creates!
This collage is full of lace, trims and buttons!
Just Beautifully Done!
The image is perfect!
Viola, your talents amaze me, and your generosity makes me smile (Big!)
I am so thrilled and completely blessed by these gifts.
You, Your Art...

Cricut Imagine is Here!

The Cricut Imagine launch was September 14, 2010 on HSN!
I ordered mine during the launch and received it 3 days later on Friday!!
This is a Monster of a Machine! It's Huge! I had to change somethings around in my craft space to accommodate it.

The LCD is Full Color and completely Touchable.
I can use all my original Cricut Cartridges on it, as well as the Beautiful New Ones!

This of course is Provo Craft's slogan for their
New Imagine.

Oh, I can Imagine a whole lot of beautiful crafts with this Baby!

In addition to this Beautiful Piece of Technology
I've joined the Cricut Circle Community...
 You guys know how I love Fabrics, Photos and New Technology!
 Oh what fun!
Update**
How cute is this little sewing machine?
The Imagine printed the colors I chose, cut it out and I layered it!
I'm in Love!

This is my first layered piece.
How cool is that?
 Have a Great Weekend!

You all know how much I love Fabric Transfers right?
Here's some transfers on fabric using two very different products
that I believe gave beautiful, touchable results!
 Word of Caution...
Doing Fabric Photo Transfers are addictive!

Mom, I Have You On My Mind...

Today, well everyday really...I have my mom on my mind.
 I created this Digital Layout for my Mom a year or so before she passed away.
She loved the layout so much...
that I transferred it to fabric
and attached it to a canvas carry-all bag
that she absolutely loved, carried everyday and
showed off to everyone she met! And I do mean everyone!
The image on top is mom when she was about 17 years old and
the bottom one is me on my wedding day when I was 27.
I love our resemblance in these photos.
 She is and will always be my greatest inspiration for everything I create.
Mommy
And Me!
Mom, U Will Always be 4 Ever on my Mind...

Testify to Love...

 

Touched By an Angel
Episode
Testify to Love by Wynonna Judd
We are never alone...

We Shall Never Forget...

 There are no words for the pain that was suffered.
The lives that were loss.
The hearts that were broken.
The grief of a Nation.
The bravery of those fallen.
Individual souls crying out to...
 Our Father
Which Art in Heaven
Hallowed be thou Name
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Will be done
On Earth
As it is in Heaven
Give Us this day
Our Daily Bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who
trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
for Thine is the 
Kingdom
the Power and Glory
Forever
Amen
 God heard their cries...
And he dispersed Legions of Angels to usher
all of HIS children Home.
We shall never Forget...

Friday's Fabulous Fabric Finds...

So in addition to the beautiful vintage jewelry I love to collect and use in my art, 
I am hooked on beautiful upholstery fabrics!
 I love their texture and patterns.  
My favorite places to find great textured fabrics are thrift stores! 
I frequent them all the time looking for old bedspreads, 
shams, lace curtains, and dollies. 
I can't wait to wash and cut the fabrics I find. 
I usually take a pair of scissors with me when I go 
just cuz...
I can't wait to cut them up! 
And...
Oh, if I can rip them too...S@-Weet!
And then of course...
I have to wash them the same day...
at the local laundry mat...
right after shopping...
just cuz...
I can't wait to touch them
before I get home!
Seriously!!
I love these Fabrics!
So in recognition of...
"Friday's Fabulous Fabric Finds"
Yeah I know...Smiles...
I have decided to post a piece or two (maybe 3) of these awesome
fabric finds!
All these beautiful trims were from the pillow shams I cut and ripped!
And these threads are so yummy!
I got them from ripping the fabric and washing it!
My Healthy Obsession is...
Upholstery Fabrics...
Laces and Trims...
What's your healthy obsession?
