I am proud as a peacock to have been invited to do a tutorial for you and I think that you will enjoy this Sweet and Simple craft.
I made these little art boxes last year and sold quite a few on the website, and now simple instructions have been provided for you to create your own. I really do need to go through those old lesson plans from teaching and see what else I can come up with, and hopefully will get some more tutorials up on the blog soon!
I don't get into drama but just one thing that I feel needs mentioning. I have heard a lot of talk lately on the web about people copying other's work and original ideas for profit. It's just not nice, simply not ethical, and the web is a small community and eventually people do find out. I have had it happen to me on several occasions (yes, I now know about the Ebay seller) and am not usually even aware of it until my on~line friends let me know! Please.....be respectful as you would want others to be towards you. As for tutorials, whether written on someone's blog or in a magazine....they are written and provided for personal use only and not to be made for resale.
Gushing and blushing here that the website at Shabbyfufu had also been mentioned a couple of other times with some products that are available (yes, I know....please excuse the plugs:-), one is this GORGEOUS hand painted roses porcelain atomizer by our artist in residence Farnaz Farzad who is such an AMAZING and talented china painter! Her pieces are VERY affordable too, and I never would have thought of using a perfume atomizer for linen spray. Leave it to Fifi to come up with that idea!
I was asked for some samples from our Pastelle Paperie quite awhile ago, and what was chosen for this issue are the pretty tags showcased below. At times we carry various artists pieces in the Paperie, including my own digitally collaged creations....but these were NOT done by me. Full credit is given to my lovely Aussie friend Gail McCormack, who has generously shared some of her work with me for Shabbyfufu. If you have time to visit her wonderful WEBSITE, please do pop over and see what she has and you can visit her blog HERE as well! I also wanted to mention that the pretty French style plates that you see next to the tags are available from my sweet friend Tracie at her My Petite Maison shop HERE.
I do thank you for coming over to visit, I know how busy everyone is at this time of year! Wishing you a very happy and blessed holiday season and I will be back with another post very soon.
Lots of love from tropical Miami, where we wear our Santa hats while lounging by the pool and sip Pina Colada instead of Eggnog!
