       Hello Friends,    Hope you all are doing awesome!!! I made this project for the Simon Says Stamp and Show this week for the awesome challenge" Whatever Makes You Happy".  Well you know what alot of things make me happy but one thing that does is sewing..and I have realized that I have not even made many post on things I have sewn....I have tried here lately to include other creations other than scrapbooking. I have never made much effort to include the sewn items..I know in scrapbooking I have included costumes etc. I really do need to share some of them.
       The configuration box is Tim Holtz which they sell at Simon Says Stamp I have been wanting to make one every since CHA. I decided the sewing was perfect for my first one (yeah you know I wanna make more). Sewing truely makes me happy. Love it in everyway. I would make the girls dresses, costumes, and even add lace to their socks.  Now I will quilt blankets, make practicle items (toaster cover, bags, etc.) I even would make my own purses and the girls too. I have really neglected this wonderful enjoyable hobby.
        Things I put into the box are tomato pin cushion I inked to distress using Distress inks. The pins are colored with Copic markers. Vintage items, Melody Ross brad "Homemade", GCD pp, old pattern and Golden gel medium. The lace is vintage. The feet are Tim Holtz, the hinges are unknown I installed them using the Fiskars hand drill. Alcohol inks on the metal embellishments.
         The encaustic piece is another view of my happy sewing side...the GCD Melody Ross sign, the Unity Stamp Company is the chairs.....oh love that stamp. I used staz-on to stamp with.  The flower is Prima. I also wanted to share with you about the pizza oven we have been working on.....can't wait. The boys stamped thier hands in the bottom where the wood will be stored. So exciting!! More pics to come. Hope you have a wonderful inspired day. Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop
