My hands are my outlet, my imagination, my expression. I have been creating and crafting things for as long as I can remember. I can now check off an item on my life list, because I am making a living selling what I make and love doing it. This blog is an outlet about my craft business, the process, the people I am working with, but most importantly my inspirations that surround me every day.

My Schmaltz-y Valentine
I wanted to feel the Valentine Spirit in my studio so... I found a very inexpensive styro-foam heart form at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I tied loads of 12" vibrant red tulle strips around it, and followed up with a clean 'hair-cut' to create this very schmaltz-y heart. I made sure all of my knots were directed the same way to keep it looking neat and tight. I hot-glued some pretty silk ranunculus flowers and voila! To spice it up a little, I was thinking next time, I'd add some patterned ribbons or extra small flowers, dotted through-out.
