Scrappy flower pins

Merry Monday to you!
I am being corny today!
I wanted to show you my scrappy flower pins...on my Mrs. Tiddlemouse etsy shop.
Above is "believe"
I love pink gingham....reminds me of little Easter dresses or summer outfits my mom would make me.

I put each one on a tag...makes a great gift this way.

I know a few people this would be good for....you know who you are!

I put them on my large mannequin dress form...which are perfect for display or to hold your jewelry collection.  I also sell the patterns for many mannequins.

They are made from layers of vintage fabric scraps.
"Love" has a yellow and green format.

"Beautiful" would also be good for a lot of people I know.
------------------------------------------
Are you working on any new projects for spring?
I am thinking of having an herb garden near my studio door...I would love to smell the herbs in the summertime.
I have decorated for Easter...boy do I have a lot of stuff (wanted to say junk...lol)
I'll take some pics.
-----------------------------------------
Refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies!
 

Come to the Pin me Linky party and The party bunch...great fun!

My drawing book

Happy Sunday to you!
I just wanted to share some drawings in my drawing book I got for Christmas from my sis.
Last time she was here....me, my daughter, and sister drew for hours at our dining room table....with tons of supplies and books.  We had a blast and also had wine.
My daughter had coca cola.
My sister wants to do it again when she comes up next.
Above is my Easter bunny....coming out of a sugar egg.

I draw with a stabilo pencil ...it makes nice dark lines when you want it to.
The only bad thing is you can't erase it really.  That's why some of my lines are thicker than others.....but I love how it looks.
That is the little bear from the Goldie locks story.

I love me some tabby cats! 
My own sweet tabby cats pose all the time....making me laugh....but they never water the flowers.

Yankee doodle bunny...complete with fireworks.
When I am watching TV at night ...I will pull out my book to draw.
This book has quotes on each page....inspirational quotes.
I just drew whatever I wanted around them.

This poor mouse is gonna get liquefied.
I have lots more to show.....another day.
 
I think you should draw or doodle....whenever you have some spare time.
It not only is fun, but it relieves stress.
Plus.... added bonus...you will get better and better the more you do it!

Spring birds

Have you noticed all the birds chirping with happiness....they have cheered me up....just hearing them tweet.
Here is a lovely design of birds....they would look fabulous stitched up and framed.
All in blue floss!
----------------------------
I also wanted to share with you this coke ad in an old mag I was talking about the other day.
It's the six bottle carton.
This little girl is thrilled to get this coke...it is the depression after all....so it was probably like gold!
I love the hat, gloves, and tiny purse too.
----------------------------------------------------
Happy Friday to you!
Enjoy your weekend!

Easter and snow white

Bet you didn't know that snow white was a spokes woman for Armour's ham!
I found this old ad in my Good housekeeping, April 1938.
It says they are inviting you to their Easter feast!

I just love the drawings and bright colors.
It says...to go with this meal they recommend...Cream of mushroom soap, celery, spinach with crisp croutons, parsley buttered potatoes, pear salad in gelatin with mayonnaise (gross), coffee and dessert.

Now that is a big ham for her and her men!
She'll have to get an ax out to chop it up.
This magazine is chick full of lovely ads and fun advice (which is sooooo dated).
One article tells you to keep your legs closed when wearing a dress (no duh).
It also has a wedding day budget....39 dollars for wedding dress, going away suit $29, girdle $5, nightgown 3 at 1.95 each, extra gloves 1.95, and get this....Brassieres 4 at 50 cents each....lol.
I'm on the floor laughing now.
------------------------------------------------
Women pretty much cooked, cleaned, and waited for their man to come home.
------------------------------------------
Times have greatly changed!

Fortune favors the brave

I love making signs....I love to inspire and also to laugh.
"Fortune favors the brave" is in my etsy shop...so are all my digital signs.
My daughter Selina helped with it....taking the photo used in the background.
She is sweet to share with me.

looks like a chalkboard sign....just download and print....no chalk needed.
The sentiment is so true!
Here is my Easter drawing made into a sign....a sweet kitty with bunny ears....
--------------------------------------
I am going to share with you some more drawings I have been messing around with....very soon!

Having a blast!

Hi...I wanted to share some new paintings I have been working on...
I'm having a blast!
It is so much fun to collage backgrounds and then add a painting on top. 
I do many at one time, because I am impatient.
I tell you...I am always thinking about Halloween designs.

I love her pale blue eyes and her bleeding hearts.
These are not done yet...but they are getting closer.
The more you practice drawing...the better you get.
I found some of my old design drawings the other day...they were bad!
But I drew as well as I could at the time....practice definitely helps.
