Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

Any info would be greatly appreicated.

New Collage page, Infinity Necklace/Scarves & Spring is in the Air

Spring is really in the Air today, I saw 3 Red Winged Blackbirds on my feeder, and thats a sure sign spring is very close-Love It).
Made another page in my new book that will include all Mary Green/s Challenges until it's full.

Have a new Craft Sale comming up here and am trying my hand at Infinity Necklaces/Scarves. These are not as thick as most you see. I think for the upcomming seasons the thinner ones with a little bit of Bling might be kinda cool.

Hope I have some luck with them (I like the way they look). Any Imput would be welcome Good or Bad!!!.

 That's it for now.
Smiles, Carol Mae

Green Paper Challenge

This is the first Collage Challenge I have taken part in. From Mary at Green Paper. I've made a larger book/Journal page in a new book I've started for myself of things I love. The page measures 11 by 9 1/2 inches. I used papers from Mary and her Glue book images also, plus a little lace, Rik-rak and buttons. "Had fun" putting it all together.

Looks like our Weather here is about to change today. Their predicting 8 inches of snow for our area in Southeast Wisconsin.  ("Hello Shovel")

A wonderful weekend to everyone.

A Vintage Bride and a White Canvas Bag

I love the way this Vintage Bride turned out, It's made on a book cover with different layers of fabric and lace. I will be putting this one in my Etsy Shop.

The thin Canvas bag, I just had to add something to it. I think I will use this one myself.

I'm learning so much from all the talented ladies out there in blogland. Thank you everyone for all the great inspiration and courage to try different things. So much more to learn.

 I also just hooked up with "Linky" I would love to have followers and meet new Artists and Friends. (It's on my side bar)

Smiles to all, Carol Mae
