Little Rose Petal Ornaments

I've been practicing making some different kinds of Christmas or Holiday ornaments to hang on a shabby chic tree. On the first one I used snippets of scraps from my roses fabrics. On the bottom two I used some rose petals I have had for several months. I have used them to make petal cakes and will probably do them again but I have had these old glass bulbs from the thrift store for over a year and done nothing with them. They turned out okay and are a lot less trouble than painting them but I think I'll paint the rest and see how they come out. I just like trying to come up with different things. I do like the fabric ones best though. What do you think?????

My First HP Birdhouse!

I finally did it - made a birdhouse with my HP roses on it! I've put it for sale on ebay and etsy. I was so scared to show my roses publicly but hey, I'm courageous and have absolutely no inhibition doing it IF I let people know it's my first attempt at painting roses publicly. I'm not famous YET!! But I would never be considered as "faint-of-heart." Wish me luck, chickadees!! If not, it'll be a present to my daughter. Sigh..................

Tasha & Tags

This is Miss Tash, my new scrapping buddy! Isn't she a doll? And look at her t-shirt- it even has roses on it. My kinda gal, for sure. She is in my ward at church. She has 10 brothers and sisters. Her mom says she likes to come over not only to make tags, ornaments and birdhouses, but because she isn't disturbed by her other brothers and sisters. What a sweetie! Yep, she is as sweet as that face. :-) But yesterday she made a tag for her sister who is having a baby in a couple of months and it's a boy. She is very considerate of her siblings. But we have a good time together and her mom trusts us to keep her! An oddity that a 9 year old would want to spend time with an almost 70 year old lady. Hah!! It's just my sparkling and brilliant personality. ;-) Today after school we'll finish her birdhouse that is going to be a surprise for her mom. Boy, is she gonna be surprised!! Woooohoooo!!
