'Tis the season for heartfelt remembrances. I received this beautiful fiber art valentine from friend and fellow creative Robbie Payne at Robbie's Paw Prints blog. You can read more about her process there. She painted and stitched the background fabric, then added a fabric and paper combo heart. The foiling and the tiny bead edging along with Robbie's beautiful stitching just accent this perfectly. I so appreciate receiving this handmade and heartfelt greeting!
And this fabric-paper zipper pouch was a gift earlier this year from fiber artist Merri McKenzie. Her fabric paper is made meticulously with layer upon layer of paper and trims. I love the vintage feel of her little bag along with the glitzy accent of a tee-shirt ball bead all sequined and shiny. Handmade is just the best, isn't it?
Meanwhile, I'm still exploring handmade jewelry items. This beachy key chain is the result of tinkering with crafting charms. I think it needs just a little bit more, but don't want it too clunky to hang off the key. All this sparkly goodness makes my heart go pitty pat! How about you?
