More of using what you have (instead of buying more....)


Not that there's anything wrong with buying more......if it's something you need!
I made these stamped ribbons out of some old fabric I've had for quite some time...and I used some stamps from an antique stamp set that I was gifted from a friend. Very cute images on what looks like a toile fabric. These will be added to my Etsy shop hopefully in the next couple of days.
I love a quick project...... there's something about that instant gratification that is rather hard to come by these days.

Ok...let's get this straight? I found that fabric then let YOU buy it? I must have lost my mind...these are the cutest things that I have seen in a very long time...you are brilliant...must be rubbing off from your friends (hee hee)...
is it my turn to drive down or your turn to come up? We must get together soon! I need a Gail fix!

I agree. It is so rewarding to create...something from nothing. Very cute. I set up an etsy site today....oh it needs work...one step at a time. Thank-you for your lovely words on my blog.

Oh these could be used to dress up so many things!

I am peeking out of my turtle shell to say thank you for your kindness and support.

Sometimes when we take a moment to look around first we can find so much!!
