I have a few new adventures going on. For now I have put away the jewelry making side and have focused on opening a new decor space with my best friend in Dickson, TN. One would think that going from Maryland to middle Tennessee would be a "warmer" change. So I packed up my creations and headed south. We were to open on Monday, Feb. 16th. Due to a week of record stretching weather events… i.e. - snow, ice, freezing rain, high winds and flooding - we are shooting for tomorrow the 23rd! It's been great fun though and I am loving my creative life. I have so many new things to show you and will be doing so very soon!
I have been making pretty Shabby Chic Inspired appliqués custom for my wood designs. I like ones that have more depth to them and don't lay so "flat" to the wood. The ones that really look hand-carved and stand out. I found a way to bring them to life WITHOUT needing molds or plaster and making a mess. And the best thing is you don't have to guess at the size you might need and then spend a fortune on them only to have them not fit your piece! They take paint (I use chalk paint just because i like that look) and I think might put together an online class soon - let me know if you would be interested! Stay tuned - I will be adding new pics as soon as we get our little space set up this week!
