Happy Sunday To You All!
I totally forgot to take a picture of the spine of Fiona's Lace Mini! Of course there is a story that goes with....LOL!
I have a new video camera in hopes that I can capture better video right! Now, who in the dickens has enough time to actually read the 500 page manual that comes with it. I always go for the Fast and Easy setup instructions that come with the gadgets these days! Thank You God! Well, needless to say, I should have taken the manual to bed with me as reading material to learn more about it! Long story shorter...LOL...The last segment of the video from the mini which has the spine piece is exactly 3 minutes! Somehow, and I honestly don't know how in blue blazes I did this, but it taped at an hour and 15 minutes! Like I said it's 3 minutes and when viewed it's 3 minutes but when you go to upload it, Youtube hates it as it shows to be over an hour! Now, I don't like to give up! I really don't, so I guess that means I have to pull out the manual and start from scratch in future.
To finish up, you all never saw the spine piece. I have received several emails saying you would like to see it... Well, here it is...Sorry about that you guys!
To answer a few more questions, the flowers were made using the melting edge technique. You have seen them done on YouTube a million times. I still love making them!
Cut various sized circles from a poly-satin fabric. Cut into the center of the circle about 5 or 6 times forming the petals, chop off the corners of each petal with scissors and then melt the edges with a Bar-B-Q lighter. Stack the layers together and glue each layer to the next with a glue gun. Pop in a button or pearl and done!
So what's on the agenda today? Well let me show you...
You may recall from my old blog, I think back in Febuary, I did a heart box that opened up sideways to reveal several accordion pockets that held tags. I did this heart box from scratch meaning I made the heart from chipboard. Which was really fun to do... however, I was trying to find a simpler way to make it and low and behold...Ok, don't laugh!....I saw a heart box at Michaels or Hobby Lobby! Can't remember which! See, I told you not to laugh! How many times have I walked past these! LOL! The thing is, like you have read before, my joy comes from trying to figure out how to make my own! But to simplify things, I'm working on another heart box for a wedding present and thought this time, I would write it down! My downfall! I get going and can't stop! Slow down Jimmy boy slow down! So that is one of today's projects I hope to complete soon.
I'm off to market tomorrow morning at the crack, so I have to pack things up and get ready to go! See you in Dallas tomorrow!
Thanks For Visiting!
