I’m so excited that my dear friend, Melissa, has started a blog of her own!  I’m going to following her and thought you might like to, too!  It’s called Stationview Cottage and will be about her family, home, favourite finds and her love of all things to do with paper.

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon as much as me.  Have been sitting out on the front deck in the sunshine (such a surprise, given it’s a very cold time of year where I live) drinking tea and chatting all afternoon.  Such a lovely change to getting all rugged up inside (although that has it’s own appeal some days). 

I’ve been working on some new bits and pieces for Molto Piccolo’s hair accessory range, and recently these ones made their way to Africa with a friend who was going to visit her sponsor child and give her some gifts.  So these ones were especially enjoyable to make.  (o:

(I’ve been meaning to say that often, my photos are quite small in size when I publish a post, as I have to reduce them down so they don’t take forever to upload.  However, you can view them at a much better size just by clicking on the photo – it will take you to a full-sized version).

Bye for now!

Love Ruth

 

.dimensions x2. February 24, 2010

Today it’s mainly just pictures of some projects.  I was inspired by the current Just Add Ink challenge, which is to include dimension in your projects.  {The challenge details are here: http://just-add-ink.blogspot.com/2010/02/just-add-ink-5.html} So here are two projects that have developed.

Felt flower hair tie

Mine (left) was inspired by a design (right) by my friend and artist Christine Buist

My second project is a card (surprise!) with a super-dimension heart.  I guess the idea is reminiscent of paper tole, but not nearly as complicated or involved or skillful!  But I like the effect regardless!

I saw this frame from The Paper Tie Affair store on www.madeit.com.au which gave me the idea for my card.

You can see this and other gorgeous paper items for sale at their  store here: http://www.madeit.com.au/storecatalog.asp?userid=8540

Hope you had a great Wednesday.

Love Ruth x

P.S. Happy Birthday Graeme!!!

That flag is an awesome sight on any day, but even more so on Australia Day.  (Photo from http://tizona.wordpress.com/2009/02/11/australian-flag-collection/)  Hope you spent the day in some very appreciative way of our great and beautiful country.  I spent hours on the beach (very Australian!) in Ulverstone jet-skiing.  Even have some windburn and a tiny bit of sunburn to prove it!  (Yes, I did put lots of sunscreen on, but it is the Tasmanian sun after all!)

So guess what?  I arrived home very late last night to discover that I won!  Won what?  The gorgeous Tabitha Emma blog giveaway that I posted about a couple of days ago!!!  (See my post here: https://moltopiccolo.wordpress.com/2010/01/25/tabitha-emma-giveaway/).  I was so excited!  This image is from Tabitha’s blog and you can see her complete “And the Winner Is” post here: http://tabithaemma.blogspot.com/2010/01/and-winner-is.html 

Isn’t that cool!

So now to my crafty things…today I am sending off my very first blog order – thanks to the lovely Emily who was my first blog customer!  I truly appreciate all the orders I am receiving for little handmade goodies and I hope each one of the recipients enjoy them immensely, whether you are giving them as gifts or keeping them for yourself. 

Hope Birdies Hair Snaps

Trés Bella Hair Slide

I am working on creating some little felt Babushkas that may end up on here sometime soon…the design is also perfect for cards so I will share them as soon as I can!
