I recently spent a creative weekend with my friends, Pam Munns and Michelle Hurtt. Both Michelle and Pam are really talented and inspire me to no end. After spending two days shopping with them and discovering creative nirvana, I realized I needed to up my game if I’m to grow as an artist and a crafter. With that thought in mind, I decided to follow my heart and work on a project I’ve had in my head for some time.

A mounted deer head, with nectarine blossoms for antlers, and a wreath made out of vintage sheet music.

This fancy, luxe bow is created from a brand new color of Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations called HUGS!  It was just released in a Valentine Blog Hop over the weekend, along with some other amazing colors and a brand new product called Beautiful Blooms.

I created the wreath using vintage sheet music, silk flowers, spun cotton mini mushrooms, and a technique I borrowed from a friend to make beautiful paper flowers. I’m not going to reveal the technique, since it was created by Michelle Hurtt. You’ll have to take a class from her to learn all about it!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Did you know that every time I get a new comment I squeal with joy?  Yes, it’s true!  So, if you want to help spread happiness, just leave a little comment letting me know what you think!
