Thank You From My Heart

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who visited me at Kaneville Fest last weekend.  It was great fun to see familiar faces and to meet many new visitors who appreciate handmade items.  I hope to get into a holiday show or two and there will be another PK Handmade Open House in November.  I will keep you posted on dates and times.  Now that I’ve taken a few days to unwind and catch up on some home work, I am feeling inspired again and ready to shift into this beautiful fall season.

But first I thought I’d share the results of the day P and I spent crafting with air dry clay.  After rolling the clay to a thickness of about 1/4 inch, I cut out a shape with a cookie cutter.  Then I impressed a variety of textured items into it.

This is a thrifted crochet doilie.

Upholstery ribbing.

The handle of an antique spoon.

The arms of a starfish.

Half the fun was finding textural things to use.  These will be framed in a shadow box  when I find the right one.

Enjoy this beautiful weekend!
