It's my thing....not to wear, not to decorate with, but to look at, dream about, and create with....I can't help but enjoy fussy frou frou :) The trims, the buttons, sprinkles of glitter, layers of paper and elements...details, details. I bought Somerset magazine's Marie and Life issues to pour over while I traveled last weekend....and I can't wait to look through them again...truly mesmerizing. When I close my eyes at night...these are the things that float through my mind.
I wonder what my little one will love....she's always been an outdoorsy girl...follows her daddy around with a wrench while wearing her cowboy boots and hat. The other day she told me that when she is a mommy, she's going to teach her honey how to ride a horse and be a cowgirl. So many things about that one sentence have been repeating themselves in my mind. The fact that she wants her to be a cowgirl just like she is....that she wants to teach her (very sweet and the thoughts of this in many years warms my heart), and that she already refers to her little girl as "her honey". Sigh....5 is sweet...sometimes downright maddening, but when I sneak up to her room to check on her after she's asleep, I love to kneel by her bed and study her beautiful face, and then all of the not-so-perfect things we've experienced together during the day, seem to fade away and I look forward to trying again the next day. I love her fun quirky style....most definitely not frou frou...but completely enchanting.
I love these shaped Kraft card bases from Worldwin Papers...they are some of my favorite to play around with. I used Melissa Frances paper, rubons, resin, cardstock sticker, gems, and chipboard on this along with a Maya Road flower, Creative Imaginations die cut, and trims from my friend Debi, and some I purchased from another new friend, Kim Hesson. I met her at the Reflections Event, and found the funnest stash of vintage ephemera. She was so kind and sweet as well. You can shop her etsy store to see for yourself. It was a treat to meet you Kim :)
Lastly a little something for my cowgirl's room :) I used more Melissa Frances paper, rubons, chipboard, cardstock stickers, gems, and dimensional stickers here along with K&Co. paper ribbon, and assorted things purchased at my craft store.
Off to mop, dust, vacuum, and...all of the not so frou frou things that the reality of life bring....
Enjoy your day.
