GETTING THE NEWS OUT THERE


i have enough scrabble tiles to last me another 10 storms. i'll take whatever mother nature sends. here in jersey we've had the 3rd going into our 4th winter storm. maybe 12" before it's over.
i think being stuck inside on days like this make great crafting days. maybe it's the nesting thing. i created two pillows today. the large one is made from a thifty find, i think it was a curtain but the material reminds me of a painter's drop cloth. i printed the graphics from
The Graphics Fairy
using heat transferable paper i ironed the chandelier onto the drop cloth material. stuffed it with a pillow form added a little batting and hot glued the fluff. the second pillow is vitnage material, i think it was a curtain. i found it thriftin' and stored it away. like a squrriel storing nuts for the winter of 2010.
 this time i used fusible webbing. once the label graphic was in place it didn't seem to pop off the material. i had to replace my snowcap with my thinking cap, i was going to outline it with glitter, not the right look. fabric paint, fabric markers, etc. still not what i wanted. digging out some supplies i thought of the sting/cording idea. i like this look it feels a little french-ee. i will be taking all these items to my booth once we de-frost. i'm also putting them on my website. hope all is well and all are warm.
