Aged to Perfection

This is the first of a few little projects I've been working on over these long grey days. 

More "mini obsessions" to be revealed in the next few posts.

Kicking myself for not getting a "before" picture. It was a Mickey Mouse mint tin. 
After hot gluing the corner pieces it was covered with silver paint left over in the basement from some random project. Glaze mixed with a little black acrylic paint 
was wiped over the entire box for an aged look.

Someone gave these to me & I've wanted to put them to use.

Now it is a needle box with magnetic strips inside.
Great for travel. Got the idea at a stitch workshop. Brilliant idea.

I just wish it would snow so I can go skiing!

WInter Time Studio Production

Here we go. Winter in Northern Michigan. Short days, little sun. I'm still waiting 
for the cross country skiing to begin. Bring on the snow!

So a lot of time has been spent in the studio. Playing around. 
Preparing for the classes I'll be teaching. Trying out new ideas.


Obsessed with pin cushions from wool I've felted. 
More to come. They are easy to transport with a needle & thread 
to keep hands busy.A must for me.

Been updating items in my Etsy shop. Take a peak at what's been added.
