I am so excited to get to share with you today that I am guest designing for Crafty Secrets http://www.craftysecrets.com/ for June! I have adored their products for several years now. They truly are an old fashion crafty girls dream come true! I have had many of you ask where I get my images from. I find images everywhere and I am constantly looking for new and old images to use in my art. Many of the images you see me create with are from Crafty Secrets. I have used images from their Creative scraps found here http://www.craftysecrets.com/ourproducts.htm on each of these projects. I have used the Domestic Goddess, Birds and Blossoms, and the adorable Sew Nice creative scraps today. Here is a link to their store http://www.shopatron.com/home/index/555.0 and also their blog http://www.heartwarmingvintage.blogspot.com/ where you will soon see a bio on me and more of my samples and many more other inspirational projects!
IN other news...I had to share my "cozy cottage" I have been pouring my heart into the last couple of days. After coming back from the coast..which by the way was sooo much fun...tiring BUT fun....I was ready to get creating. I adore doing altered projects and find that they relax me. These little houses are close to my heart. This one I covered in my fave aquas and reds and embellished it with windows, a little door, a vintage milkcap (of course) , and hearts, and buttons....and ohhh you get the picture..many of my favorite things! It got sanded, painted, crackled, and distressed for that perfectly imperfect look I love. This one even has a little mini banner on each side of it spelling out "COZY COTTAGE". I will be adding it to my etsy store soon. Well that is it for me. Stay tuned for more Crafty Secrets projects. I hope Summer finds you all well! XOXO, Cherry
