These two card are for a challenge I am participating in on Paper Craft Planet. The first is a little bear card that I gave googly eyes for more interest. The second is a vintage sewing card. I love to sew and stitch and vintage is one of my favorite themes.

I have been wanting to try my hand at these. This weekend I was at a flea market and the lady in the booth was practically giving spoons away. I came home with a handful and immediately starting altering them. Here are the ones I have made so far. I have a few more that are been refinished and I will post these later. The wooden spoon with have a tutorial on how I made this on my Mixed Media and Altered Art page.

I have been going through my miniature collection and came across these beauties. These dolls were made by my daughter and myself many years ago. I just wanted to share some of the miniature creations we have made. The first is a little baby all snug and warm in a bunting bag.

It has been a busy long weekend for me here in Canada, but I did mange to slip into my studio and work on some items. here is another altered spool that I made for a swap at My Fun Crafts. This spool will soon be on ti's way to Australia.I used a spool with a bit of thread left on it and stuck a sewing needled through the thread. I also used a scrap piece of lace and a piece of measuring tape. I includes some straight pins and a vintage tag of silk thread. Then I included some flowers and leaves.
