Just to give you something else to look at other than my downsizing efforts, how about an inspiration for a new landscape? This is a photo of my uncle with the tractor he refurbished and now drives in pretty much every local parade in his area. I've wanted to use a tractor in my work and so this has become my inspiration. Of course his tractor is far too 'pretty' for my liking, so you KNOW that part of it is going to change!
and this is the beginning of my version....
I know - doesn't look like much does it!!
I'm sure some of you are asking that very question of 'is it over yet?' and I'm sorry to say you're going to be subjected to downsizing caper results until the end of the month. All together now.....groan.....
|A box 3 parts full of scrapbooking paper, some plastic rings, a bag of pom poms, some calligraphy guides and a guide to making paper beads|
|small paper envelopes (I have more!); alphabet stamps, stencils, a pair of scissors that won't cut and some tags|
|A bag of feathers, a bag of faces, sequins with no holes, bottle caps, plastic eggs and some|
stuff of questionable origin/use
|card sleeves (I have tons still!); photograph corners; pom poms, and a pkg. of pop dots|
- Seeing THESE resulted in an involuntary 'awwwww' from me. So cute!
- And THESE are cute too.
- Have a look at THIS and be sure to read her post. Amazing!!
- For those who knit and want to help out in some small way in the animal rescue efforts in Australia 100% of your purchase price on THIS pattern goes to cause. Most of you will remember the little gnome I knitted for our soon-to-be-born grandson - the pattern was from this designer.
- And have a look through THESE incredible crafting spaces....would any of us be this tidy?
Today's quote is from Deborah Wirsu....."The thing is, by adulthood, we've learned to recognize quality in other people's work, but find it difficult to see the merit in our own"
