I may have mentioned this already but I'll say it again... This year hasn't been so good for me so far. Maybe it's something to do with that 13 in 2013, maybe I'm cursed but then my hubby and I are even more in love and I have a new mental health team that are trying new things - so I guess it's sort off okay.
Since the middle of January I have wanted to create something new for my Sew Cherry Blossom shop and it's been a struggle, though I have enjoyed the journey and always knew what I wanted in the end product. In between really rough days were I have had to be sedated and days were my new meds have played up and my hands haven't been working I have been thinking a lot. So when I can I do, when I can't I plan :) I am stubborn!
So welcome to the first of my birds - freedom in felt, for me; a project that has literally given me hope that I can fight and creating is something that helps me to conquer the desires to hurt myself. There is a lot of emotion and love in these, I have 5 so far and my love keeps growing...
So welcome to my Bird Hangings/Garlands .......
These 2 are going to be in the 'standard beauties' section hopefully tomorrow and I have ideas for a 'deluxe beauties' range :) They will basically be the same only with more beading, sparkle and ribbon, plus a topper that will have a gorgeous big bow, or heart of the initials of your choice :) Yep, that magical word - personalise-able.
*** I have also been lucky that my archeo Hubby is working on some research on churches and thus I have visited a few gorgeous ruins in the most stunning spots and my photographic juices are returning :) I think I can say that in the next week or two I shall upload a good few nice new shots that you will hopefully love as much as me. Cherry Blossom Tattoo is coming back!
*** Aannnnndddd - 'Sweet Etsy Goodness' interviews are coming back - I have 2 fabulous women who are interested but I haven't got their replies back yet. PLEASE, if you are interested in FREE publicity here contact me, share the offer with your friends too, I will take any arty/crafty people off Etsy :)
Love and Hugs
