Grads, Dads, and Birthdays Let the Summer Begin


I have been so neglectful of my blogging while being caught up in all the festivities with family that I thought I should do a post.
In between a little art gets done but nothing to share just yet! I'm really proud of my Granddaughters that just graduated, first one from High School. Off to ASU in the Fall!

                                                            Second one from Jr High.
My little Grandson last but not least, is so full of fun and cake. Yep, turning Five and getting to start Kindergarten in the Fall is a big deal especially if you are the last Grandchild. So Congrats to all of them as they begin new journey's!

Alice In Wonderland


Here are a few  paper dolls I recently created in Vintage style. The theme is Alice In Wonderland and one other Character. We were to include some fabric in our set. Alice is wearing an apron created from a vintage dinner napkin and cut down stockings from a very old doll sock.  Mr Rabbit is wearing a vest created from some vintage felt gifted to me by a grandson of a neighbor. Fun, fun!
Speaking of fun, I'm taking a great class over at Artful Gathering called "Beyond Time". You should check it out along with many others. We are creating a mini book and I love it!  The link is on my sidebar if you want to try!
Today I'm linking up with Etsy Cottage Vintage Style for their monthly blog hop.

Where Did the Month of May Go?

Wow is all I can say, seems like I just posted not that long ago and the month got away from me:)
So be it, here we are beginning June and to make matters worse I didn't get my May Quilt block even started. I guess I will be busy over the summer or early Fall. Here are my May Tags for my latest Swap and our theme is "Geishas".  I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out and the challenge I threw out there way to use Tea, Tea tags or Tea bags in your Tags, I did some of each, can you find them?
I also completed 4 lap size Quilts for our church group where we donate quilts for a variety of needs. Nope no pic's but Ill try to get better at remembering to photograph them:) A couple were pretty cute too!
