Creating with Lace


During the preparations for
the Art & Craft Show
I suddenly realized I had been drawn to the lace again




I love creating with paper
and lace


This time it turned out to be most lace


and so I wanted to show you
what I have been up to since last time



this is the first time I will be participating in this show
I actually had decided not to do any shows this year in Denmark
but just couldn´t resist when the organiser asked me
to be there with my bears.
Not a lot of people collect bears in Denmark though
so I´m going to bring some of my other creations too





Wishing you all
a lovely creative day

As you probably have guessed I have been working
really hard on the Christmas Collection.
And I finally managed to get the photos taken too.

So - here´s what I have been working on....


paper crackers
old paper, fabric, lace, black string and buttons



old cloth pins and wooden spools
decorated with lace and sweet french *NOEL* ribbon



tiny cones
with a little touch of silver glitter



decorated bottles



with old curtain clips
and sweet vintage children


some lace and old paper too


more vintage children
scalloped edges
added to a string

to become this vintage inspired Christmas Garland.
~

My New Cabinet Card Box

For a long time I have had my old cabinet cards stored in an old
ciger box on my work table.
~
I have been wanted to decorate it for some time now, so when
I signed up for the Artist Class I decided
to try Lori´s tutorial for her beautiful box.



this is my edition of the box.
Not at all as beautiful as Loris´s
but I´m kind of satisfied with it anyway



I have been working with cream and black lately for the Christmas Collection
and wanted the box to go with the same theme


so I added black string to the edges




and an old key hole on the front
to match the cabinet cards



and some lace too ofcourse :D



Now it´s on my new shelf
only waiting for more creations to come.
What do you think.
~
Have a beautiful sunday

but that´s okay too


it ended up with 2 sweet christmas creations

and a sweet altered christmas bingo card decoration.
What do you think?
