Wow, today really feels like Monday. Steve had a nice 4 day weekend scheduled off from work, and even though I did work quite a bit, having him home was super distracting ;) All in a good way though! It made me want to get out. I wanted to go out and play and find fun things to do around town. And we did just that! There is always plenty of fun things to do around here with town events, great pubs and music, lovely places to walk and site see. Window shopping is so inspiring down town. I just love getting a hot cup of coffee and walking hand in hand with my guy downtown and peeking into the store fronts.... seeing all of the creativity put into the window dressings. There is a lot of great style down town Bend. It really is inspiring.
One of the evenings we did just chill at home. I decided to put an idea I've had, for some time, to use! I've been thinking of these ornaments for quite some time. These ornaments were my first try. I will likely list a few more, as I have a few other ideas brewing for making these cute super sized buttons (almost 2.5 inches!) even more fun and creative.
Winter was obviously my inspiration for my new designs this weekend :) I love shades of soft blue, cranberry, silver, pearl, white combined together for winter. My ornament "Winter Cabin" was inspired by the beautiful cabin we stay at during Christmas. I also pulled designs from some of my button designs to re-create them for ornaments. I will be creating several of these custom for my tree! The white buttons were an experiment with new textures that turned out GORGEOUS, the color is so soft and has a light pearl sheen.
Simple and lovely, perfect for a little cardigan sweater or even a beautiful accent on a scrapbook layout or card :)
:D As I type this, I just received notification from Etsy and most of these just sold :) Off to re-list a few of them. How funny :) Love that!
Have a great afternoon! Do any of you have snow where you are yet? DO tell!
