Contests and other crafty endeavors..

We are having a fun contest this month at Scrapmuse - the challenge is to combine products from all of your kits from 2008 and create a layout. You can see the details here. Here is my take on the challenge:

And a close-up of my background showing the texture from collaging the papers onto canvas, then shading with charcoal and some machine stitching.

My other crafty passion - quilting - Kaffe Fassett is my favorite fabric and quilt designer! A quilt like this one was on the cover of one of his books - I made my own version only in a smaller scale - I am using it over a sideboard table between my kitchen and dining room - it looks lovely there! This is a photo of my quilt:

And a little toot - I got layout of the week at AMM with my Life is in the Details layout! You can see the blog post about me here:

Also, I have been trying, with trying being the key word, to organize my studio this weekend. Em, Mom and I went to Gainesville to try to find some decorative storage stuff and I have torn into everything to purge and organize! Oh, boy! Let me tell you, DISASTER OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!! Hopefully, I will find my way out of this mess soon. Any tips would be greatly appreciated, seeing as that gene is missing from my DNA. ;D

Have a fabulous and creative week!! I'll be by to check in with everyone soon!

  2. I meant Kaffe Fassett! TYPO! :)

  3. I am an idiot, Lori!! That was the photo of my quilt - my wording was confusing! I edited it, so now you can tell that it is a photo of my quilt. Sorry! :)
