A New Garland for the Fourth of July

Here it is!  The completed banner for the Fourth of July.
I started with these pennants that I found at Pottery Barn.

This picture of my Great Aunt Maybelle was my inspiration for the first pennant.  She was 15 when this picture was taken circa 1900.

The other pennants were put together using K & Company embellishments, things I had around the house, and trims from my favorite scrapbooking store, Vintage Melrose.

Ta Da!

Not perfect, but not too shabby, either, eh?

I need to improve my photography skills or invest in a new (expensive!) camera!

My Creative Side

I've never thought of myself as particularly creative.  I've tried my hand at various creative pursuits:  sewing, cooking, scrapbooking, quilting, etc., but, "Creative? Me? I don't think so!"

Recently, I've begun to re-examine that thinking!  After all, God is creative and I'm made in His image, am I not?  So this blog is all about pursuing my creatvie side.  I don't know where it will lead me, but please join me on my journey!  It's going to be fun!

Coming Soon!  Pictures of a Patriotic garland that I'm making for the Fourth of July.  Stay tuned!
