Winter Snowgals and Gingergals

Have you ever spent a great deal of time thinking about
something...but talking yourself out of it? ONly to
think about it some more.....wishing you could do it
but not sure...lacking in a little....confidence?
I finally did it! It took me a long time to figure things out...
but I opened up my own Etsy shop. This is my personal
transformation! Big smile.

I dream about
things I want to
that I like...
wondering once
I make it if it
will look as good
in real life as I
I've been doing lots of designing
patterns, sewing, glittering, painting.
I've also been getting little
miniature items for quite some time
to add to my creations. I just
love miniatures...and I love vintage
things. So when I create
patterns or make something, I like
it to have a vintage feel or look about
it. I used old buttons, old wool,
Martha Stewart glitter and faux
snow for a old wintery look.
When you get a chance be sure
to visit my new Etsy shop and
I love to transform fabric
into something...

Have a blessed day!
"Better are the days
ahead of you than the
days in your past."
Ecclesiastes 7:8
