Things are finally humming right along!

Things really are humming...especially in my studio! I haven't been this productive in quite awhile. I don't know where the ambition is coming from but I don't want to question it! Here are a few things accumulating on my table.

This is a journal made from a black and white composition book, which is what most of my journals are. I used a vintage page along with a vintage reproduction of the lady sewing. I've also used vintage scrabble tiles and music. The ribbon, buttons and "Treasure" frame are new but fit right in with the look.

This little cutie was made from another composition book. The flower is from a vintage book about flowers that I got at my local thrift store and has not been aged at all. The coloring is natural. The entire journal is covered with vintage wallpaper in a soft blue color. The printed page is vintage but everything else is new as well as the seam binding. Boy am I ever loving that stuff! It just hangs so nicely and I don't even want to use my regular ribbon much anymore.

This is a smaller hardback journal that is decorated with all vintage things except the flowers and heart. It's hard to see, but the frame is covered in lace. I'm not a very good journal keeper but I really want this one. But.......since I'm NOT a journal keeper it will go to either Etsy or ebay, not sure which yet.

My 87 year old Mom will just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cake! She has been on a perpetual diet for as long as I can remember and this one is calorie free! I'm going to use it to put her Mother's Day gift in. I love the's all glittery. The box itself is covered in rose wrapping paper that just happened to match the flowers I had for the lid.

I really have had fun the past few days and can't wait to get back upstairs! I can't believe the difference a larger work area made. My tables are full but still give me plenty of room to craft.

I hope y'all have a safe and blessed Easter with lots of love and laughter around. Ren
