The Glitter Is Flying!

It is that time of year again,
I have my Christmas music playing
(this year's favorites are Bing Crosby Holiday and Andrea Bocelli Holiday on Pandora Radio),
and I am sparkling head to toe in German glass glitter .
"Peace On Earth"
"Joyeux Noel"

I am offering some small ornaments at very affordable prices,
this little quilt piece heart is one of them.
This is my first peat pot decoration,
I know I am years behind the trend.
"Let It Snow"
Thanks so much for visiting today.
en-JOY Your Blessings,

Lots Of Studio Cleaning Happening Around Here!

I have accumulated so many beautiful treasures over my years of junking,

so many, in fact, that I am fast approaching hoarder status,
(talk about your true confessions).

When you realize that you are blessed to have a huge studio space,

but you are creating on a clipboard on your lap,

it becomes obvious that it is time to purge.

I have begun listing these items in my artJOYstuff etsy shop,

and there is much more to come,
I promise.
enJOY a lovely weekend,
and Your Blessings, my friends,

Christmas Sneak Peeks Reveal

I fell behind, (again)
and did not get around to showing a week's worth of peeks,
but here are the finished items I did share peeks of.
is a collage created on one side of a vintage child's slip.
I hand-stitched the silver metallic ribbon.
A trio of glittering tags,
created using a mix of vintage and new elements.
I used music themed washi tape to cover the base of these tags.
Madonna and Child fabric tag,
is created on a base cut from a quilt remnant.
I love these vintage glass stars,
and am using them a lot this Christmas!
This is another quilt remnant tag,
this time featuring the jolly old man,
and a few vintage jingle bells.
I am finally using some of those vintage Scrabble tiles that I have stashed away!
I have quite a few other new items finished and
awaiting their moment in front of the camera.
I hope to have them photographed and listed this week.
My Halloween swap will be announced this week too!
enJOY a sweet week,
and your blessings,
