What's new in the studio...

I have been working on many things recently...not only playing catchup on some other things: an altered book for round robin, some mini charm books also for a swap, class project samples and getting down to making some more of my new found favorite creative babies - the origami ornaments. They are growing on me and the inspritation is coming from everywhere. It certainly doesn't help that spend most of my weekends at my local SB store working & teaching. But yesterday my husband filled my tanks with coffee early and I shot a bunch of photos for new items to post on Etsy.

I have many new items in the works for the shoppe. I am currently on a roll with these Supersized origami ornaments - which are lantern size. I am working on several: an orange & black halloween theme, a blue and green ornate scallop pattern, and a two-tone creme ivory & creme wedding versions. And maybe...a purple and black halloween witch, too.

This is my first "One of a Kind Original". A large origami ornament made with patterned paper by My Minds Eye; a two-toned blue floral brocade pattern, acid & lignin free. Each ornament is approximately 12" high from top to bottom of tassel. A peacock blue 1/8" satin ribbon loop to hang from, approx. 4 1/2", finished with gold filigree cone. A large gold bead flanked by multicolored glass beads adorn a peacock blue colored embroidery floss tassel. Each ornament is hand crafted - the paper form alone is 7" tall - kissing ball size; can be hung alone or in clusters.

For a little bling I can also accent this item with Stickles glitter glue. I have left this plain so far since I like the simplistic beauty and the monochromatic colors.

Thanks to my first customer, AnneMusingDesigns on etsy for the idea of supersizing the orginal origami ornament to lantern size. Please check out her hand made flowers here.

Now I'm off to round up my Altered Mini School Notebook [just found out it sold this morning - YAY!] and prepare it for shipping and make the rounds shopping my studio for supplies & craft goodies to donate to the after school program. Then I'm off to the SB store for the afternoon and stop for some extra new supplies from Staples on my way home. I think I'll treat myself to some pink erasers to carve into stamps...SMb
