Piano keys

Friday, 29 January 2010

Today I've been busy making treasuries - grabbed both treasury main and treasury west. At first wanted to make something black and white, but ended up with too much black. The poster sketch looked quite depressing. Then I just started all over - added a hint of pink, browsed some Valentine's items and here are the white piano keys:

Featured Etsians: FloremarkShop, jackiepeppermint, Tartelette, lilypottery, psarokokalo, TijaViksna, spinthread, Ravenhill, Lori411, corybethy, ninaglaser, retrospectrovintage

Why not to give the black another chance? Here are the black piano keys:

Featured: clevergirl, lizgrandmaison, mydearthing, larimeloom, jillatay, bunnywithatoolbelt, corrieberrypie, Meganzii, piprobins, btaylorquilts, ErikaPrice, 13bees

Have a balanced weekend!

P.S. Background music - We have a map of the piano

My creative space

Thursday, 28 January 2010

My creative space is back! Hooray! This week I'm surrounded by a rainbow of fabrics for my fabric covered button studs. I'm cutting fabric, covering buttons, gluing earring posts and taking pictures like crazy. Restocking was much needed, but I'm making some new pairs as well and this means new colours like black which wasn't on my list when I decided to name the whole line fabric jewels. Are there any black jewels at all? Hmm... Now I'm looking for the name before they can be listed on Etsy.

A while before spring

Wednesday, 27 January 2010

It's time for window shopping on Etsy! Today I'm thinking about February - the coldest month of the year (can it get any colder?!), Valentines and a while before the first signs of spring pop out. Enjoy!

Passion for fashion

Friday, 22 January 2010

I've much respect for milliners, so when I stumbled upon ChrissyCallan on Etsy I knew right away that one of her hats had to be included in my next treasury. The dancin' shoes print by pepography helped me to choose the palette.

Winter wonderland

We are living in it now :)

When I start a treasury in turquoise I always end up adding some orange or red. There's something about the combo, isn't it? The title is borrowed from maclancy's print :)

Heart shaped felt

Friday, 8 January 2010

I'm getting ready for a crafty weekend, although there's a high possibility of my plans being distracted by a snowy weather. Since I might end up spending too much time on skis I've already cut the felt into shapes to help me visualize how much I want to be done this weekend. Have I told you that I'm addicted to felt?

Have a nice time! See you on Monday!
