One Little Creation

that´s all I have accomplished
the last two weeks.

well - that´s not completely true
I have been working really hard actually.

I´m so out of time and so far behind schedule.
Could I just wish for more hours in a day.

Currently I´m working hard to complete a huge shop order.
I can´t tell or show you anything before a few more month.
And I just realized that september will be here before we know
so I have to start working on the bears for the Hugglets Show in London.

I did had plans with Christmas in July on Etsy, but
I´m too late this year and to start create with my newly found
flea market goodies - so many ideas are floating in my head...

back to my finished creation

last weekend we spend time with friends
in their summer cottage
relaxing and junking
I did have some creative time too
so I made a sweet little altered book

a perfect project for some time out of the studio.
I had brought a little basket with bits and pieces
and suppliers, just a case..

here´s a little closeup of the pages
using papers, lace pieces

sweet images, vintage buttons

a vintage doily on the front and some cheesecloth

The junking
oh - that was great.

We had planned to visit the big outdoor market
(my favorite one) but the rain was pouring
so there weren´t many booth, but our friends knew
a few indoor ones, so we spend saturday hunting.

I can´t wait to show you what I found
Just you wait and see :o)

Also wanted to say a big welcome to my new followers.
I know I promised a 600th followers giveaway
and I haven´t forgotten, just haven´t had the time to get around it
Will you bear with me for a little more time?

Wishing you all a wonderful day
Tina ♥♥♥

(ps: the book will be in the shop later)
SOLD - Thank you

Hugs, Jackie

Tina, it sounds like you are VERY busy indeed. You got me all excited now, hinting about the huge order, and then you make us wait for months? Lol, just as well that I don't have internet access in France, where we are going to spend the summer, then I don't have to fret about your news.
The fabric book is delightful, but then all your creations are.

Hi Tina
I haven't forgotten you and my promise! The little book is very
sweet with all the precious little laces, vintage photos etc. and they really do take time even when they are small. Hoping all that busyness is creating good rewards for you.
Looking forward to seeing your finds.
Hugs to you dear friend,

Dear sweet Tina,

I do wish you had more hours in your days! Time does seem to go by all too quickly, especially when you are trying to finish things by a certain date. I love the beautiful altered book you made! The images and laces are so pretty! I love the gorgeous one you made for me in our wonderful swap! Thank you so much sweet friend! I am glad you had a lovely time with your friends and were able to go to a flea market and find some pretties! I can hardly wait to see them all! Enjoy creating!

Love and hugs,

Claudia said...
