Hankie Banners

I've been thinking of making some vintage hankie banners. I have been collecting hankies for a few years now and have several. And I have them displayed in my craftroom. But as I'm sitting in the hotel room while my dh is at school I got to thinking of them again, So I googled it this morning. And this is a few of the results.. I think a white on white banner would be pretty for a wedding or bridal shower. Here is a picture from www.recycledsewing.com

And here is another picture from impressedinc.com Which is adorable too..

And of course one from www.erindreisback.blogger.com.

I've got a Bridal shower coming up I have to decorate for, I might have to try one for it and I've got a baby shower after the first of the year for my first grand child.. I think it would be sweet to get some of my, my mother and grandmothers from both sides to make one with the cuteness of baby pastel colors..
So today, I'm going to go visit some local thrift stores in this new little town were having to stay in. They don't open until 10:30.. Can't wait to see what kind of treasure I may find.. Anyhow, will post later of my finds... Have a "BLESSED" day.

67 What's On Your Desk? Wednesday

My desk and Shabby studio is rather shabby and really messy. My daughter did help me some last week, but as soon as I start another project it kind of gets out of hand.

This morning I've got several projects I'm working on: some Halloween cards for a client.

And if you see on top of my sewing machine, I have a cute little candy corn Pillowcase Dress that I've got to put together and get in the mail for another client in Az. The rest of the pictures are some random "Shabby" shots of my little studio.

This something I wrote on my door, my inspiration to me (One day I'm gonna paint the Ugly door, but for now it inspires me by in content "Do something you love and are PASSIONate about and you will succeed." Donald Trumpp

This one shelf houses most of my children ministry things.. I might try to move it into my spare bedroom.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my humble little "Shabby" Studio" my playground. Now I'm off to visit others see what is on their desk... If you would like to join or view what's on everyone's desk hop on over to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

Some new additions to my craftroom..

Here are a few Additions to my craftroom..
This is part of an old door that fell apart. I've used it for several different things, and thought it might be cool hanging it in my craftroom to hang cute things on. Gotta add more stuff to it though..

I copied this from someone else. I had this old jewerly hanger in my closet with nothing in it. thought I could use it to put embellishments for sewing in it.. cool idea I borrowed from another blogger..

This little cabient I upcycled and added to my room today to hold my jars and lace.

Random pictures of the cabient..

Thanks for visiting today.. Gotta work on some projects and sew five little dresses.

Some pretty cool things I created today

I went from spring to halloween and then Christmas. I got the new red top notch paper in today and had to try it out on my Christmas cards. And the new daisy punch so I had to try it out with the blue gingham tag. I was making some Halloween cards, thought it turned out cute. Trying to make some vintage/fall looking tags for a customer. I made the larger tag with the music fan circle I had to try that technique out. So I've been piddling today. Tomorrow I go and spend a day with an old friend.. We are going JUNK'N!! I'm so excited. I'll pot what I find.
