Living in the Projects

That's how it is ... always a million projects going on! I did manage to get 4 Christmas gifts in the mail today, and to get to the bank. Nice to cross those tasks off my list! I am working on some valances for a friend - 4 windows, all different sizes, but the same type valance. Hopefully I'll remember to take a picture when they're done. The fabric is really nice and I think they'll look great - just a lot of work to take on at this time of year!

I picked up these Gingko leaves at a park a few weeks ago. I was hoping to work with them while they were still fresh, but no such luck. They are all dry now, but well pressed and I will still work with them when I have some time - just have to handle more carefully I guess. I might trace some of them to make some stencil patterns or something. Not sure yet.

If you are interested in more free images, here's a link to another holiday countdown:


It's awfully generous of these folks to share these images ... now if I could just find the time to save them somewhere. Another project, I guess!

Don't forget to leave me a comment! See 12/1 post for details. I'm going to have a give-away in a couple of days. See if you can figure out why.

What about sealing them and making one of your frames with them? Or roller printing one side and transfering onto fabric (sort of like treating it as a rubber stamp)? I'm just not sure how they'd hold up or if you'd need to seal them then ink them?
