Sprinkle Magic :)

Into my last week of the 39 squares project, and I am really enjoying blog-hopping, seeing all the finished samplers popping up...there are some amazing stitchers out there!
I decided on a little angel today, sprinkling magic wherever she goes :)

After all, we could all do with a little extra magic, couldn't we?

I'm also still working on using up some of my scrapbooking supplies, and ploughing through some of the hundreds of photos I have sitting around :) You may remember some of these from last year...

This LO is very pink and cream...but it's rainy today, and hard to capture the colours just right. I've just used a little October Afternoon Report Card and some alphas by Jillibean Soup and American Crafts...and some rubons and Prima flowers.

Another simple one I made last night...

As you know, I've been having a clean up in the craft room, and found copies of all my Christmas newsletters that I send out each year...I figured they deserve a place in my Christmas scrapbook too.

This paper by Websters Pages is so beautiful...I knew I would never be able to cut it! So I added some bits and pieces, and called it good. I have several years worth of newletters to go...must keep working on that!
Thanks for popping in!

Your angel and black swan are both so beautifully done!! And I really love all of the new scrapbook pages you have completed.
My craft space/office needs a huge clean up.. So I am trying to do just a little bit at a time. I sat at the shredder for 45 minutes yesterday, going through piles of paperwork and getting ride of stuff I don't need. I am also searching for things I don't need/want that can be put in the garage sale up at the high school this weekend. It will help me clear space, and help them raise money for the Band.

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. This has been so much fun and I too have enjoyed blog hopping to see everyone's embroidery. I think I am going to have my work framed in a shadow box for my studio.
What about you? What will you do with your finished sampler?
I have so enjoyed your squares, they are outstanding.
I will be visiting your blog often as we enjoy the same things. Take care.
