Recent projects

Needless to say, I've not had a lot of time to divide among creating things, photographing them, editing the photos, and blogging about them... Naomi turns 10 months old tomorrow and is quite good at first making big messes in the craft room and then crawling at top speed into another room, necessitating my hastening to police her activities elsewhere. Plus, half the time I want and/or need to create something in the craft room, Natalie, who is nearly 3 1/2 years old, is adamant about doing her own thing in some other part of the house. It's a fun phase of life...

In the meantime, I am able to sneak in a few craft projects. Most recently, I made a fabric flower brooch for my mom. I used pieces of old clothes and some black felt all sewn together with a lovely button my mom found at a local fabric store.





I also made a baby-gift basket--featuring a mobile, a photo album, a set of thank-you cards, and a greeting card--and donated it to the local Birth and Baby Fair silent auction.


And in other creative news, I recently purchased a writing desk. The lovely green vintage desk makes me happy...

On my other blog, I wrote more about how I found this desk...

Color options for custom pink mobile

Color options for custom moon and stars


I'm excited to be working on another custom mobile, this one for a little boy's room.

Here are some of the possible combinations based on the customer's request. I love all these colors and am excited to hear which ones will be chosen...



Most of the prints in these combinations are subtle. The darker blue has soft polka dots, and there are also light yellow and light blue cloud prints with polka dots.
