An Interview, a Banner, and a New Shrine

Debra and Nicole at Maison St. Germain just interviewed me about my new books. Debra and Nicole, thank you so much! To read the interview, please go HERE.

Of course, my books are about blogging! But, in the interview, I explain why I think blogging is like on big pajama party! Don't you agree?


As many of you know, I create custom blog headers and buttons, as well as Etsy banners and avatars...I have been making special "Shop for Christmas at" banners as you can see above, but each store's is custom with their own pictures.


I just created this "Ode to Spring" Shrine...

It gave me a chance to use pink!

I have used lace, flowers, buttons, cheesecloth--and more to create it...

I also completed a Mother Mary Shrine which is featured below this post if you would like to see it.

Next week is my Victorian Christmas Week beginning on Wednesday!!!

XO
Cindy

Sue said...

Just read your interview. A pyjama party I have never been to but I often blog in my jammies, does this count?
Great banner you have made Cindy, that pink edged flower, lace and image match so perfectly, you have inspired me to make a shabby chic card next, I have not made one of late and I do enjoy adding texture and embellishments to my creations.
Would love to have an update on DH, and how are you managing?
Smiles:)

Happy Pink Saturday Cindy Sweetie...
I have my pink jammies, my slippers and I am on my way over. I loved sleep overs as a kid, and yes I agree, one BIG slumber party.

Your creation is absolutely gorgeous. You have the touch sweet friend. This pink and burlap is SO, SO pretty.

Congratulations on your interviews for your new books. Remember when we talked on the phone, and I said to you that one day I would be saying I knew you back when. well you are on your way sweetie.

Hope Ralph is doing well. You remain in my prayers. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
