Through The Lens

Today I was present at a professional photo-shoot of a painting. While Mitchell of Mitchell Kearney Photography was carefully preparing to take the perfect shot, I was sketching and looking through the lens of my iPhone.

Honey Bee Earrings

It takes a lot of patience to embroider a little bee on a tiny swatch of fabric. I received these earrings as a gift from my classmate at the Visual Arts Center, Ginny Hass. I fell in love with these the second I saw them. They are so simple, yet very unique and truly adorable! Cannot wait to see Ginny expanding her new line of jewelry!

Friday Arts & Crafts: Do It Yourself: Lace Roman Shade

Recently my Mom brought me these delicate lace trims and fabrics she has been collecting for many years. Now that I am all grown up, I can have them! At first I hung this 100% cotton lace fabric as a plain window panel coming down all the way to the floor. But it was not working as it was obstructing the beautiful view of our garden.

After a bit of a brainstorming I decided to transform the lace into a roman shade of some sorts. I came up with ruching the delicate fabric with white ribbon, no sewing involved. Using the trick that my Mom taught me once, I attached a safety pin to the end of the ribbon and went through the lace measuring equal distance for each "stitch". Tying each strand of ribbon at the end in a bow, and gathering the fabric to the desirable length, I ended up with a window treatment that adds softness to the hard surfaces of the room and keeps the window view unobstructed.
