Elosie Corr Danch: Paper Sculptures | Macys Flower Show 2009






Paper flowers will never go out of favor. Taking elements of nature and creating new textures and color combinations will always capture an audience.

Eloise Corr Danch has really done an amazing job for the Herald Square, 34th Street | 7th Ave & Broadway in NYC. I wish I could see it in person. I hope to go downtown tomorrow and get snaps of the Minneapolis Macys.

Macy's Flower Show: How did I miss this?











Flamingos! My bird! Love flamingos. Reminds me of Florida.
How did I not hear about this. I went last year with a few friends and loved it!

Crafternoon: April 26



Photo Credit:Random Inspiration

The ladies and I had so much fun this past weekend. I am making a dress for a family weekend this coming weekend. Nat, made bag or two, Meg recovered couch cushions and April painted her kitchen... photos to come of our finished projects.

This was so much fun to get together and create. Many more to come this summer!

To my surprise!



As I was logging in after coming back from vacation... to my delight I have two people within the last month pick my blog to follow. Here I just thought my friends and family check to see what inspires me. Really I only use this blog as my personal on-line library and if I'm stuck or need some inspiration and want to look back this is my online resource.

So Hello! :) Bag Lady and Jenius!

Wearable Art: Jewelry by Miette




Miette is making art that is not only hypotrochoidic but simply stunning. I love the feminine nature of these designs!

Handmade Fabric and Cloths: Virginia Johnson






Ohhh... I just love these fabby creations by Virginia Johnson. She makes her own signature textiles and then fashions dresses, tunics, scarves extra. I bit pricy for my pocketbook but ever beautiful.

I have been marinating on this idea of making my very own textiles... more to come on that!

Vintage Wedding Dress




If I did it all over again, I might go vintage down the ale. But since I am utterly in love with Mark, my husband, of all most 2 years this will just have to be inspiration...

Etsy Shop: Porshes Place






Want a vintage look with fresh modern fabrics? Look no further than Porshes Place shop on Etsy. She offers custom made vintage dresses! Her sewing talent is quiet evident. I love her work and want to purchase one of everything in my size!

Crafternoon: Fused Plastic Ideas

A few of my fellow design fellows decided to dedicate an afternoon to simply making an original creation on our "must do list". There are so many things I want to make!

I recently heard of fusing plastic bags and making dresses, pants, bags, wallets, you name it... I think this is what I am going to attempt to make at our crafternoon this weekend.

Here is some inspiration to get me started.
Groundsel on Etsy has some really great items for sale including this fuse plastic shoulder bag.
