Friday in my Studio

Happy Friday!!
There has been so much going on around here!
My shop and my blog have been so neglected!

I have missed interacting with all of you, and missed creating!!

I am working on getting back in the swing of things, though, and have begun work on a new line of gift wrap elements for the shop.

Here is a little sneak peek at what I've been playing with!

I have always believed that the packaging
of gifts is almost as important as the 
gift itself, and take great delight in
wrapping up presents for friends and family!

I also love the idea of using cast off
items, and things that can be used again.
Some of the elements will be sold individually, and some in gift wrap kits.
Simple beauty is my inspiration!  

Lovely vintage trims and bits
and bobs will be included, of course!!
Everything looks better with a touch of vintage, you know??

and OK...
I know it is just the beginning of summer,
but I just made my first pumpkin for fall!!

I'll have a whole new line to choose from,
by the time fall rolls around, and will bring back some well loved styles like these French inspired ones, too!
Hope your weekend is fabulous!
I will be creating, creating, creating!
Praying for the firemen, and all those in
the path of the fires in Colorado Springs.
Blessings and hugs!

Hi Becky,
Welcome back. I am excited your creative juices are going again. I love these gift wrap ideas. I can't wait for you to put those up on Etsy. I agree the gift is so special but the wrapping is the icing on the cake. These look so cute. I love when someone say "oh this is too pretty to open".

Hi Hon,
Know you must be bummed you haven't gotten to the beach yet, but maybe next week will be better. Love your package and your pumpkin. Both so
beautiful. I would just take the beautiful box with nothing in it, cause it is so pretty.
So glad to hear your A/C problem was an easy fix, that makes one just a bit nervous to say the least.....since they are so expensive to get a new one.

Glad you finally got to see the baby and to hear her first belly laugh (for us anyway)Fun we got to share it together.

Have a lovely restful weekend,
Love ya, Nellie

Hi Becky! Haven't been by in a while so I decided to pop over today and visit. Glad I did! The new wrappings are lovely. I agree btw, the wrapping is soo important! The pumpkin is darling too. Hope all else is well. Enjoy your week-end!

How exciting to be in full creating motion. Love your packaging and the fall pumpkin. Never too early to start on anything as time passes so quickly. Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts...

The gift wrapping is stunning. What a great, original idea for your Etsy shop. I will be looking for it.
I bought one of your beautiful pumpkins last fall. It was the last thing I posted on my blog. I am still getting lovely comments on it.

Hi Becky, The wrapped gift looks so beautiful and I love the pumpkin as well. It always feels so strange for me to create something ahead of the season but I hope to make some fall decorations soon too.
Have a wonderful weekend!
