The first room that will be complete is my new craft room. I can't wait to get in there and start creating again! I'll share some before and after photos once we're done.
In the meantime...
I had a couple of projects published in last month's Create Vintage issue. And was I surprised (and a bit disappointed) to find out that Northridge stopped printing actual magazines and has now switched to an all digital format. I will miss holding the magazines in my hand and poring over the beautiful projects inside.
Here is one of the projects that was published. I made a vintage style hanging that features a photo of my grandmother. I reused a background I had created for another project that I wasn't thrilled with. I layered scraps of paper from Prima, some old fabric, lace, millinery flowers, and some sweet tiny flowers from Maya Road.
Here's a closer look at some of the embellishments.
The photo was taken of her and my grandfather back in his sailor days. I'm assuming they were either in Philadelphia or New York at a nightclub. Can't you just picture the band playing, martinis swirling, and couples dancing...
