Spinging into Action

So, this is what I have been doing lately,  you can see I did start a 52Q book, and have neglected it for a few weeks....that's Ok---it's ok to do a few weeks at a time...I like that....I finished the Marie above on the violet paper this morning.  I am going to move on to making some bigger wall hangings and greeting cards--feels good to have a focus.
I would think I would be able to wait and put these up on Etsy in April---but, I am just so excited about them I have to do a preview fashion show of sorts.
     Did I mention how much fun I am having making these......they are my Queens of Inspiration.  Every night I try to read some quotes from Marie Antoinette and find them sad---not so inspirational.....but she was the Queen of Fashion and maybe I will just stick with that.  I am working on some greeting cards---thought they would make regal thank you cards and Mother's Day Cards......Gotta get back to playing.......

Oooo~they are fabulous! Glad you are having sooo much fun and being so creative!!!! It feels good doesn't it???

Yeah, I don't know what the "big deal" about Marie is...she screwed the people of France and had her head cut off...not really a mentor in my book. But, fashion? Maybe so~only in that era of course.

I LOVE YOUR SPRING BANNER. I know you posted about it a while back but it looks fabulous on your header!!!

everything vintage

Love them Geralyn. I agree with Jodie about Marie.She was kind of clueless. I think the fascination is how over the top she was while everyone else was starving. Hmmm, somehow that sounds familiar lately. But I digress, I love that you are busy as a bee in your art room, making beautiful things. I always look forward to your changing inspiration board. Hope the weather is warming up in Jersey, Hugs, Pam

These look gorgeous! So vintage chic.

I believe there is always more to the story then we know, Marie Antoinette frivilous nature was inspirational in a fashion sense, but her reign wasn't good for the people as a whole.

However those fashion plates always inspire my fashion side, with all the lace, and Parisian flair, I can't help but decorate with them in my vintage works, so timeless.

P.S. When is Parcel?

Geralyn, Your works of art are master pieces...and I too LOVE your SPRING banner...spring is popping up all little daffodils are sprouting and shouting "I'm here" with their sunny looking the song "keep on trucking" melody goes - your lyrics should be "Keeping Creating"...10 Four Good Buddy...have an awesome night!

They look great. Man, everyone always rips MA a new one. There is always more to a person than we'll ever know. If you do make some cards, don't forget to post them. :)

That does sound regal! I always watch the movie when Francois is out of town:) I sit down with a box of macaroons and a mini bottle of champagne and indulge!

You are very talented! I love the Marie Antoinette masterpieces. She was so young, yet the fashion of the day was to wear those white wigs that made everyone look so much older. Your Spring banner has inspired me to make one of my own to bring some much needed cheer into our home. Thank you for the beautiful message. I am trying to get back into feeling creative and I am so happy I dropped by to see all the beauty you are creating.
