Funny you should have that silhouette up today; we just had some made of the kids! I don't know if you saw the spot on CBS Sunday Morning, but they featured silhouette artists and museum collections of intricate antique pieces. So cool!

Hello! I stumbled over here somehow. Lovely crafts, lovely blog! I really like your etsy shop, I'm new to etsy myself. It was nice meeting you!(And, I'm so sorry to read about your loss, hope the days are getting better.)


OHH I think I love this even more. Here is to crafting on the couch. Clarice


Crafting on the couch....what could be better? That is such a cute idea. I liked the mitten and now the purse.

You are so very talented and after such a hard time you are still making such beautiful things. May it continue.


Cute as a button.


What a very lovely idea. I think crafting on the couch is the best place. I love spending time going through magazines. I have lots of clippings and pages in clear files but I feel like starting again with them all and sticking my inspirations into pretty books instead. I think the couch will be a good place to do it.


how funny.. I can totally relate to couch crafting! :) Loved the mitten cards and the purse and colors are adorable!


oh, wow, the purse tag is SO lovely! I do lots of couch crafting, I have a lap desk and sit with hubby...oh, you are an AI fan too!! I am counting the days! I love it. I go throught the mags too and have notebooks with page protectors for ideas, etc. have fun with the couch crafting~all you make is beautiful!!!


Charlotte, I have to tell you I made some cards and posted about them. Thank you for the inspiration. I am sure others are inspired too.
Have a lovely week. Clarice
