Special Orders Completed

It ALWAYS feels good to get your orders all finished up! And just in time for my trip to Reno!! YAY -

The name blocks were done for my husband's cousin, Melanie. The names are of her daughter's for a birthday gift! So sweet aren't they?

And another order I finished up for Becky! 7 hand painted Easter Eggs!

Marie's Favorite Flower - 4x4 Book Swap

TYPE OF SWAP: ADVANCE 4 x 4 Chunky Book Page

I am starting to dream of Spring. Everyone knows how much Marie Antoinette loved the flowers from her gardens. Envelope her in some favorites for this blooming book of beauty!

Number of pages to make was 8 (one for each member's book.)
One of the members then bindd the books and sendd them back to each entry for a Spring celebration Chunky Book!!

This is the funnest type of swap there is as far as I'm concerned! These darling books are so sweet and inspirational. This swap makes my total 3! See the past posts on this blog to see the others, Valentines Day '10 and Christmas '09.

I hope you enjoy my page for the Favorite Flower Book! I used vintage images from a 1929 book which featues the hollyhocks and canterbury bells! Marie's garden would not be complete without her Roses and Maine Coon Kitties, "Poppy" and "Alexander."

Marie Art ~ Felted Easter Eggs

Here was the challenge:
Make Easter eggs using felt in pastel colors, make 4 get 4 back, make eggs approx. 3" size, stuff them with fiber fill to make them a bit puffy, add scent if desire (optional) decorate with embellishments using lace, ribbon,flowers,jewels and beads, whatever you like. This will be a partners list so you will get 2 partners and send 2 eggs ea. You will get the same back 2 partners in return.
