Greetings again. I have just popped in to talk about the glorious chaos that I seem to live in and the lovely warm feeling I get wrapping up my finished makes.I was always an untidy child and my mother gave up in the end trying to train me in the art of tidiness.My grandmother would tell her that I was expressing myself and taught me to look at the happy accidents I created. She really had the most beautiful way of seeing the world.
My work desk is always covered in books,fabric,ribbons and anything else I like looking at and I have often fallen in love with the mini still lifes created amongst the mess.
The above picture is of a thank you spinner card that I'm making
to send with my makes. When you spin the lovely maiden; her butterfly headdress flutters onto her head. I'm still working on the final piece but have been rather taken with how she looks resting on the lace circle.A new idea I think! You see; mess is inspirational.
I will show you the finished spinners soon(I might even show a moving image !)I do love packing up makes for people and always use my favourite colour tissue and two wordy butterflies.Not sure how chatty they are though...love Gracie xx
