Busy Weekend and a TECHNIQUE

Happy Monday! Busy weekend here, Sarah was in the music "Festival" for our school district so I seemed to be driving up and down to school all w/end. Her Dad did take us out for supper at Bonefish Grill on Saturday to celebrate, yummy! The symphony orchestra scored all I's, the youngsters were so excited about that!

Today's Technique on Splitcoast is "Make a Trellis" for pretty spring flowers. I have had a couple of classes using the SU Lattice Die and quite a few customers have recently purchased it. What better thing to use today? I love how this turned out. SUPER simple, but so elegant!

Here's a closer look.

I also wanted to share the finished Fairy Shoes my sister, Sarah, made last week. I thought they were finished when I posted the first pic, but look at them now! I made her take a pic of them nesting on her hand so you can see how teeny tiny they are.

I think everyone needs a pair of fairy shoes somewhere in their house .... don't you? (My big sis was complaining that this pic makes her hands look chubby ... I just KNEW she'd want me to share that with you all ... hee hee hee ... glad that I can still tick her off now we're in our 40's ~ just like old times, eh Sarah?!!!!)

Beautiful trellis! I love the colors.

The fairy shoes are just so very wonderful. Love those too.

I love the fairy shoes, great job Sarah! Oh, and the trellis card isn't too bad either. ;)

Love you too! I'm going to make another pair tonight, I think - if they're good enough, I'll get the fairies to fly over the pond and deposit them in your workroom!! xx
