Winter Daze

A couple banners I made up for my Etsy but cannot get the sizing right ..anyways...










Bought these neat little digi kits on http://www.scrapartist.com/ just love the glitter sprinkles.. and very neat border kit used on my Feb banner..

Some papier mache pieces from the past.....




Slightly altered postcards..







This heart head girl is now wearing her 'vintage rayon aqua ribbon 'which I forgot to put on her for her etsy photo!



Old Ted and heart ornaments for Valentine tree.. my new old doll bought on ebay,her body is leather filled with cork and needs major repairs..cleared up her 'perfect condition' Heubach head and hands just needs a nice mohair wig.. she will be a 18-20'' tall doll when finished. Think I will dress her ,using a old vintage petticoat for Easter ..so she will come back in April ..all dressed up..

Hello! after a brief winter break..Been busy cleaning my workroom and working on Papier mache[for Bethany Lowe and Etsy] at my kitchen table as been too cold to be in the basement! Doing alot of baking too to keep warm [get those winter munchies]..keep telling myself I'll lose the extra weight in the summer.. Ha! Anyways, the past winters was always spent at my daughters.. but home this year so able to do Valentine /St. Pat / Easter and winter projects..will drag out the Valentine decorations/cards etc..this week and do up my Valentine tree..will post freebies for you of old Valentines all month..that's all for now..

Hi Debra- always makes me smile to see your creations! On your etsy banner size-take your old banner that is the right size and just paint over it and start layering the new graphics on top-Kris
