I was able to score some more good buys on ebay.....I was like a little kid at Christmas when each of these boxes arrived. They were really great buys and I have a lot in mind to get some craftiness going with these Victorian Ladies. I just got my last shipment before I got the Fashion Plate CD from Lisa. When I opened the CD and there were 350 images including Marie Antoinette I was so happy....I couldn't wait to get started. In the collage below in true Victorian fashion I saw a feather on the ground....resisted picking it up.....but what the heck I was with my mom and she just smiled when I put it in my pocket. So I was happy to put a real feather on the collage below.
I was so excited to see some pink and green images--I was able to find some paper and ribbons and get right to work.
So I have been going on and on about the CD from Lisa Kettel and I thought it would take a couple of weeks to have some things made to show you. I surprised myself and crafted each morning this weekend. I have a lot more in the works, but I was able to finish two pieces. I didn't know much about the new magazine launch of Marie by Somerset---I keep seeing some snippets----I can't wait!!!!!!! In anticipation I am crafting like crazy. I have decided in April to change from a Spring and Easter theme and devote my banner and etsy shop to Marie. There is a Marie Antoinette mail art network I joined last night. Under some encouragement from you I will try to host my first swap. It will be a Marie Antoinette Artist Trading Card swap so you have time to think about it. I am off to make some more creations----I haven't had so much fun creating in a looong time.
