Christmas In July! Free Shipping!

It’s a sale! Yay!

Every year I run a Christmas In July Sale offering a discount on Christmas items in my Etsy shop. This year is no different. This year I have decided to offer free shipping on anything relating to Christmas. Whether it be a tree skirt or stocking, or maybe a custom painting that has a Christmas theme.

A little too warm and rainy for you to be thinking of Christmas? Can’t forget the first day of summer was just 9 days ago? That’s okay! You have all month to warm up to the idea! (Pun intended, lol)

There are so many things I love about silk…..the feel, the sheen, the way it drapes. And believe it or not, it is a pleasure to paint on.

These are some of the Christmas related items that I have in my shop right now. I am, however starting on handpainted ornaments and a vintage/shabby chic tree skirt and stocking. That is besides a couple of Hydrangea paintings I have in the works, which I will be posting on before too long.

I really love combining sewing and painting. The cream colored silk tree skirt and stocking I even got to do some hand sewing in the way of quilting and sewing on beadwork.
It’s all good!

You can find the sizes and prices on my Etsy shop…

Have a good week!

Valentine’s Pillows Or Sachets

Wow! Valentine’s Day is only 6 days away! I decided to throw a little something together for the holiday.



I haven’t really thought of myself as a romantic, but I do love pretty things.

These little pillows (or sachets if you like) are a sweet little addition for Valentine’s day. Handsewn, I painted hearts on them with acrylic paint and fabric medium. Then, using the same type of paint but in a metallic gold, I wote on them in ways that you might see on a candy heart. They were really quite fun and if you would like a pattern with written instructions just let me know.

I filled them with fiberfil for now, but I do plan on inserting fragrance in them. They are available in my etsy shop readymade.

Have a good day everyone! We are having a warmup today. It will get up to at least 20 degrees they say. However, with that we will be getting more snow. That is our pattern here in Illinois this year.Let’s just hope for more sunshine. That has been rather nice the last 2 days!
