Mixed Media Swap Assemblage

I created this cute mixed media assemblage with my favorite paper from Graphic 45’s “Once Upon A Spring Time”. This paper is so gorgeous so when the swap called us to use our favorite paper I immediately thought about this one! The swap is called “Mixed Media over on YPP and we were asked to alter an Altoids tin. This was so much fun to create and I have to say that I will be sad to part with it!
Products I used:

Totally Aprons!

Hi Ladies so it’s been raining cats, dogs, and snow balls in Northern California! Lol and I’ve been sewing… OMG Me? Sewing? That’s incredible!!! Don’t get me wrong I used to sew when my daughter was little and she requested Princes outfits for Halloween and such. So I would become a brave girl and make her the cutest costumes sometime with an occasional malfunction!

 I’ve never taken a sewing class because of time constraints so everything I know I’ve picked up here and there. Last week Your Paper Pantry hosted a Valentine Day Sweetie Crop where my friend Yolie {Yoliebean} hosted a class on a fabulous apron so I thought I could try it out and here is my result! So dusting my old sewing machine paid off and I think I’m going to take advantage of my time off and create a few more of these aprons. I totally enjoyed make it and I’m impressed at how it turned out. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think? Meanwhile I will try making another one…
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi ladies I’m feeling a bit under the weather today and decided to go to Joanne Fabrics! Nice medicine for my cold huh? { lol }

While spreading my germs up and down the aisles I came to the remnant bin and found these beauties! I haven’t sewn in year’s ladies… I guess I got inspired by Yolie over at the YPP Sweetie Crop the other day and when I saw these cute fabrics I decided that I would make myself an apron or two! So I’ll make sure to come back and show you what I come up with later. Thanks for stopping by.
