Handbags and Purses.
So very personal.
We keep our lives in them.
I am drawn to these elements of days gone by.
Statements of style, beauty and workmanship. One of a kind. Special.
Well, March has arrived with the threat of more cold weather and snow. I see a bit of blue sky out my studio window right now, however so I will “Meangadh”, which is Irish Gaelic for “smile”.
To usher in the month, I created a Gaelic-inspired wrap bracelet tutorial for A Gilded Life’s Gilded Girl Stash Society.
You may remember the sneak peek of these cute covered buttons , which feature some wonderful vintage ephemera that I had scanned and then printed onto fabric. I incorporated some of these onto the wrap bracelet.
I am sharing these cute little clover girls with you to use in your March creative projects. I would love to hear about how you used them!!
I am waiting patiently for Spring to arrive. The Witch Hazel is blooming, and the snow has pretty much melted away. To keep myself busy on these chilly Winter days I have been playing with Ice Resin. These little heart bonbons were made using a heart candy mold. I added a little charm and some pretty script paper for the backing. They will be turned into pendants, I think.
I am also working on creating tutorials for the latest Gilded Girl Stash Society Box from A Gilded Life. Here’s what I was sent to work with.
I have a few projects in mind, and started working on one today. Here’s a sneak peek!
I just love how this little covered button turned out. It features some of my favorite vintage ephemera, that I scanned and then printed onto fabric. Perfect for a little Gaelic-themed project, don’t you think? March is just around the corner, after all!
