Why Is it

Why is it I seem to have so many creative ideas all at once? Why can't they be spread out a little? Does this happen to you? I don't even want to sleep right now. I have skipped my nap two days in a row. When I skip my nap something is happening. Smile. All I want to do right now is be in my studio creating! There is not enough time in the day. What fun but I sure wish I could be more creative in making more time in my days and my nights. Below are some pictures of a couple of completed projects from the weekend. Also, our supper last night. My grandson, Chandler, and I made a homemade pizza.

I embellished with vintage doilies and chenille. I wanted the snowman to look like it was peaking out among the snow flakes. Guess I have been in snow too long!
The entire altered apron--guess I should have cropped my shoe and table leg out of the picture.
There is that shoe again. I altered a pair of jeans using  chenille , vintage doilies and pot holders. I used hand crocheted vintage trim on the bottom of the skirt. I embellished a top with a vintage doily to match the skirt. This project is for my dear friend Suzanne's sister-in-law. I have had her jeans for way too long now. I am not a procrastinator usually. I am so glad to finally get this done for her. Now I have to get it in the mail. Hopefully this will not take me months! 

I made this pot holder a pocket.
Close up of the beautiful vintage trim - I love old trim and embellishments as much as I love paper.
