This card was so easy and I really like it! Glued a deli paper gelli print to a craft card with a glue stick. Used dollar store double sided tape to pick up another strip of gelli paper and taped it to the inside. Finished it off by stamping the peace signs and birthday greetings with ranger Archival ink, manganese blue. Happy Birthday Logan!

I had my shower curtain all laid out when I remembered that I needed to do a valance for the new lilac grey bedroom! I had a temporary valance before, but it was just pinned to a piece of lace with old jewelry. It was beautiful that way until it came time to launder, so decided to baste the hankies directly onto my shears. It was a little tricky because all my hankies are different sizes.
Used a straight stitch on #5 length.
Pulled my favorites for the valance.
Really happy with the final result. Left some big holes in my first curtain but there are more hankies where these came from!

I've spent my weekend washing and ironing my collection of silk, lace and hankies. I've been collecting antique linens with the intent of making something fabulous with them! Pinterest gives me such inspiration!
I had everything laundered and had to buy a new iron. Then, I discovered the great idea of using shower curtain rings and hangers to store scarfs! Off to Dollar General for cheap rings.
I'm not sure where I got all this lace but have more in gaudy colors. Won't that be fun!
I found this little address book at the thrift store. I used my seven gypsies journals as an inspiration to alter it. I used craft paper and a glue stick to put a new cover on it.
Then used Tim Holtz tape to dress up the binding. (And hide my mistakes.)
Coated with matt medium then used gesso to edge everything in black.
