Our intern artist Lauren Cody was commissioned to revamp the vintage Putz Houses that had seen better days. Lacking their luster Lauren went to work this past summer to renovate these little houses from the past and gave them character . Wow, they are so happy now and definitely a place I would like to live. 🙂 Love you guys. Thanks Lauren for the love you pour into these. More Houses at our show below..xo
PS Barbara Strawser will be here and she can't wait to meet you all!!
So let's change it up and use some of the projects from Girls World to make Holiday items. You are going to love this one. Who doesn't love a little felt in their lives? Vintage pom poms? Ok so I got your attention. I'm sure you all remember the banner in Girls World. It was a Happy Birthday banner but I changed it up a bit to now say Merry Christmas. You will need wool felt I got mine on Etsy, stabilizer backing, diecuts from Maya Road the white flowery part, and felt letters called stickit's mine are from ebay. Of course a Girls World Book to keep you on track. The sentiment is all yours..You make it up!! So love that you come by it means the world to me!!!
so tomorrow i go and put the natural blond back in my hair,,my daughter asked if i was painting grey right into my hair..so stopping and going to try and relax and write while I wait for the peroxide to work it's way to my roots. I love to write so calming . The big blue signs are up , the buzz is beginning to take hold and i am so excited to see you all..I so love your enthusiasm for the handmade. If you see or know anyone from the New York Times I've been trying to get them to come for years. Being in the New York Times is on my bucket list..
So the elves are putting in final touches ..see you soon.
Let these images represent inspiration for you to create and we love a hollaback if you saw it here first. Sis Boom loves to be original and loves to give credit to all of our creative peeps with new and fascinating ideas. It's what we are known for..in otherwords we share that pie. love you guys, get that creative thinking cap on and dive right in. I purchase so much at garage sales and flea markets but ebay and etsy make it real easy to keep warm in the winter. Hope black friday is enjoyable!! xo
