It's that time again. It has been Wednesday in England for quite a few hours now! Time to stop by Julia's blog and check out all the busy workspaces from all around the world.
I haven't got any cards or scrapbook pages finished up this week as I am still busy making flowers.
I have just started dragging out all the bits and bobs to make some of these new style. The pale pink boa was from a Zellers clearance last year... ten cents each boa...Now, that's a clearance!!! Luckily I picked up 8 packages.
I popped into Michaels today and found that lovely white boa...it has the added bonus of some silver threads running through it. I grabbed the black as well...too bad it doesn't come with silver threads too. I had the black polka dot flowers already and added in some white petals from my scrapbook stash. I always have an assortment of hair clips and goodie brand elastics. These should work out just right for the fasteners for the first few. I will keep my eyes peeled for the specific type that is on the flower Miss C already owns.
I have had to take this picture on the other side of my L shaped counter. I don't normally work on this side as it houses my computer, cricut, and printers. But since my other flower projects from last week are still on the other counter, I was forced to set up over here.
I have one more project to show you...it is crammed into that same corner...almost on top of my keyboard.
I will push the flowers to the side so I can show you the second project.
These are burlap flowers that I cut out of a shopping bag from the dollar store. A couple of days ago, I blogged about the bag I made to carry my weigh in clothes, diet sheets, diet grocery shopping book, etc.
I decided that the flowers on that original bag were a bit too small and looked a bit lost on it. I managed to cut a bigger petal and added it behind. I am happier with the final result and now have to ink up a bunch more to be attached to the bags I am making up for gifts.
Here is a sample of the finished bag. It is a burlap bag, lined with plastic...I think it is meant for fruit and veg etc. There is a huge bag to match (also plastic lined) for the regular groceries. I will give a matching small and large one to my daughters and to my sister...hope they don't read the blog this week. Both my daughter are really into recycling so I may gift the bags at Xmas, with a couple of their Christmas gifts inside.
