be nobody-but-yourself

Well here you have it, my most recent work for the past week, I find myself self trying to pull myself self out of a creative fog as I try to gear up to selling my wears at Craft Republic November 10th.

(machine quilted multi layers of fabric and paper with pearls and french knots.)

"Life Art"
I am trying to frame these as a triptych... I put all 3 in one shadow box but it did not look right, so I will now try to frame them each on there own... what is making it hard is that they have dimension and need to be in a shadow box format and there is not to much out there to choose from, and I do not need to take up a new hobby of making frames!


There are two art girls out there in art land that will be receiving these lovely parcels:
and let it me noted that wrapping it all up is my most favorite thing to do and at this point you
are only seeing it half wrapped :)

This one is going to Tonia,
she loves hearts (as do I! ) so I made her "Brave Heart" this etched and dapped copper heart with silver on beaded crochet silk necklace in a fabric holder.

she and I did a trade and Tonia created this most amzing Plexy necklace!

And this is long over due gift is making its way to Elizabeth for being a fearless RR leader!

“To be nobody-but-yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
