Sorting and Creating

Salvaged lace on old pegs

How'd your January treat you? Mine's been filled with weekend outings, MAJOR decluttering/sorting/organizing, and a bunch of behind the scenes Etsy/Ebay tweaking. 
(Post office price changes etc...)

Boca Raton Museum of Art

Heh heh - you can see the 4 of us Odd Tuesday (our creative group) members in the window reflections. We joined up one Friday to view the 'Politics NOT as Usual' quilt exhibit. (oh - and lunch al fresco at Uncle Julio's nearby). No quilt pics this time - none allowed in this museum.

Gelli plate printing experiments

One of our recent creative get-togethers included playing with Gelli plate printing on paper and fabric.
I made an album with my fabric printing efforts (see the blue stripes on the book above). Those postcards will get further embellishment later on.

I used thrift shop shirt fabrics in the album- a red denim for the exterior combined with a tropical floral for the inside flaps.

Overall I'm pleased I made something and completed it into a useful item, even if the exterior screams American Flag and is otherwise pretty uninspired!

Ready for February?

Thanks for stopping by!
