i am SOOOOOOO
flippin' OVER winter,
thank you for listening.
i feel better now. :)
if you are similarly beaten down by the cares and heartaches of not having been outside to play in far too long, why not join us this week at shopping our stash for a little challenge we like to call, "cabin fever" for which we'd like to see you make anything with an outdoorsy vibe. you can do snowy trees and frozen lakes*, of course, if you're into it. or indulge your warm weather fantasies, with beaches, gardens, meadows... whatever you like! i decided to branch out (ok, sorry, worst pun ever!) by re-creating one of my favorite sights of spring: lovely birds in a tree full of leaves and flowers!
i only realized as i sat down to type this how few commercial products i've used here, but i've definitely tapped plenty of vintage-based stash! i spent a pleasant half hour over the weekend playing with masks and inks on vintage dictionary pages; i fussy cut a pair of baltimore orioles; i did a little machine stitching; and then i called it a night.
each and every week, olympic gold-medal-winning levels of usin'-up stuff is being performed by my lovely SOS dt-mates. why not cruise over to shopping our stash and observe this phenomenon? ciao for now, darlings! ♥
*afterall, BY FAR the best place for that sort of thing is ON CARDS, am i right?!!
