Blue Velvet

I would like to thank you for the numerous letters I have received regarding Mixed Media Art: Living Your Passion....I know that so many of you are getting your creative groove on--and this is very exciting!

On my birthday, I received a vintage bottle from my good friend, Velma. I adore cobalt blue and she knows it and surprised me with this treasure....Thank you, Velma!

Well, I just created a bracelet for a dear friend of mine and I wanted to show you the pictures...

I have always wanted to make a bracelet with buttons....This was my chance.

I received an amazing surprise in the mail yesterday from Sharon of Plumrose Lane!!! Not only does Sharon create awesome blog designs, but she made this treasure!!!

I wish you could see it in person--it would take your breath away. Thank you so much, Sharon!

PLEASE NOTE: At the moment, I am in the midst of a major project--and "the reveal" will be next week! In the meantime, I will not be available for comments or emails. I hope you all understand.

Wishing you a wonderful end of the week and fabulous weekend!!!

What I want to know is why when you titled this Blue Velvet the tune sung by Bobby Vinton came careening into my head and yes Missy it will not leave! Hope you are creating away!
Much love~

I love the cobalt blue bottle and thought the bracelet was an accessory for the bottle. love it. btw, have I told you how much I hate word verification? I'm visiting lots of blogs and when someone has 12 followers and word verification....arrrrrggghgghhggg!
Can't wait for the reveal!
