OMG I can actually sew material!!!

This is what I made this afternoon for Elise out of some really pretty fabrics.

It has been a while since my old sewing machine has had anything but paper and cardstock go through it but my new love of gorgeous fabrics has inspired me to do so. I am actually quite proud of myself because I have only ever stitched a pillow case before and that was in Year the olden days!!!! I plan on making her some more skirts (as she loves skirts and dresses soo much!)...some long and some short. With the t-shirt I just appliqued a material heart on to a top I got from Target for $9...bargain!

So I didn't scrap today but you can be sure these pics will be scrapped before long.

Ciao for now....

Saying goodbye....

can be a hard thing to do when you have had such a wonderful time! I have just recently resigned from the Just Scrapbooking Design Team after three years. I loved every bit of my time there from the friendships I have made, the professional nature of the team, the awesome products and the great boss lady at the helm of it all....Jordie thankyou so much for everything!! I will, of course, be keeping in touch and I am so excited about attending their August retreat (Nomes, you can finally get your needle back!)
I promised myself that this year I would make more time to spend establishing my own little creative business, just inspired. This will mean that my kits will be out on a regular basis and I will also be working on a creative staionery portfolio that will live at Create & See. I am also putting quite a bit of time into my Patching by the Port workshops and this has really kickstarted my passion for working with fabrics. So keep checking in to see what I have been busy creating.

I will leave you with this quick double layout I finished last night and a photo of my flower canvas (which I revamped by adding a chocolate coloured fabric base to).

See you very soon...
