Keeping Busy

I haven't posted forever!

I've been keeping busy working on a couple of painting projects
around the house, trying to get a little bit of cleaning done (very little, actually),
and of course, lots of creating....lots of swaps.

It's been so grey and drab here lately, that I'm having a hard time
getting good pictures, but I wanted to show you some pretty swap gifts.

These are the beautiful fabric postcards I received from a Marie Antoinette swap.

This first postcard is from Lisa.

This one is from Holly.

And this one is from Mary.

Then I received this gorgeous button brooch from Laura.
I just love the beautiful details, and all the many pieces
that went into the creation of this piece.

Another new crafting adventure: I created this altered bottle
for a Marie Antoinette swap.

I've never done an altered bottle before, and can't even believe how much
fun I had with this. It's definitely something I want to do again.

I just finished another fun project last night
that I can't wait to show you....soon.

Have a wonderfully creative week!
