taking today...

to reflect on life... with the sad passings of those celebrity personas that left our world this week as well as remembering my momma (its 5 years today..) just taking a few days to reflect, think, smile and remember those that affected my life either through songs, dances, words or laughs... they will be remembered and their impact on my life is great!

Peace be to you all

Americana class

by Lisa Pace ... is going on here.... Lisa Pace

Her site if full of gorgeous things.. from vintage treasures to her own creations and inspiring pictures of her beautiful family!!!
The classes are phenomenal... I usually end up doing the projects she gives us directions for and then branching out and doing extras for my home , gifts etc... so many details and fun ideas to try with great pictures and directions!!
Here are the first two projects I made from the class... the banner is actually extra crepe flowers I made and strung them together.. instead of putting them on a stick ... the firecracker display is actually a old ribbon spool .. I also added a gift iridescent bow to cover the top of the spool!
I will share the next two projects I've done tomorrow!
