Wonderful Wooden Boxes – Take 1

ebay.com

I try to stay out of stores that sell office supplies, art supplies, baskets, or wooden boxes of any kind. I don’t know what it is about these things that make my mouth water. I want them!  So, I try to confine myself to drooling over them via the net, where I can ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ to my heart’s content without knowing the prices or even considering actually trying to buy them.  I know that in these cases, enough is never enough – I can always find an excuse to add more….

Getting in the Mood for Christmas

I have to admit that this year I haven’t been swept up with the Christmas spirit yet, other than making a few things as presents for some of the great people in my life.

My good friend, Jackie Lyons, created a “Snow Village” and posted it on Facebook today. I wrote and asked her if I could share it with you. Happily, she said, “Sure!” Best of all, it gave us a chance to visit and catch up a bit. She’s a beautiful lady I never would have met if it hadn’t been for the Internet and my former website, Creative Artworks.

“Snow Village” by Jackie Lyons

I could feel my spirits soaring when I saw this. Who could be filled with, “Bah, Humbug” when they could see this?

Thread Art – Take 1

Debbie Smyth-ego-alterego.com

 

As you know, I love string art. Just by chance I looked up ‘thread art,’ and got a whole new art form! “Thread Art” or “Thread Painting” seems to be a combination of all things good about working with thread. Some slants more to the string art form. Others go more toward embroidery and quilting. Then, as the one above shows, talented people are working with thread to do portraits! My mind is boggled, and my senses soaring to find something I didn’t know existed. Over the next few days I’ll be sharing what I’ve found with you. I hope you enjoy it, too.

I just LOVE baskets. In fact, I have banned myself from basket stores, plus stores that sell wooden boxes, plus art supply stores, plus office supply stores, plus “fru-fru” stores…..

I think these are absolutely gorgeous.
