What I Have Been Up Too

My first love will always be needlework, but I very much enjoy paper crafting. With it I do not have to follow a pattern and can let my creativity come out. I choose the colors and shapes and decide if I should add various embellishments. Should I add a ribbon or maybe a flower? What about embossing part of it? I can "play" with what I can alter - comp books, photo albums, candy bars, microwave popcorn and what ever else pops into my head. Fun, Fun, Fun in my book.

Many years ago I started a small business to sell craft at consignment shops. We moved and I changed to designing cross stitch for children and from photos for folks. We moved again and I dropped it all.

Recently I started it back up, but focusing on Paper Crafting, but because I do other stuff as well, my tag line is "Paper Crafting and More" and I sell under the name Orange Blossom Dreams because early on I thought about doing wedding stuff and Orange Blossoms fit.

I have a website which is primarily a blog. My recent post there shows you a little of what I do and alerting anyone in the area about a show I will be at on Nov. 22.

I was at a show this past weekend and getting ready for it kept me a little busy the last few weeks, but I have also been stitching on the other canvas class I took at seminar and it is moving along nicely as you can see here:

SEDONA Cathedral Rock
Designed by Lois Kershner (c) 2012
Class taken at the 2014 EGA National Seminar in Phoenix, AZ

I need to put some finishing touches on the water, add a rock in the lower left corner and then start the sky! It is a fun piece to work on. Finished size is 5''x 5.5"

I think that fills you in on what has been going on in my world!

Happy Stitching!!
