my creative space . . .

Some yummy brass vintage buttons I bought from an Etsy shop a couple of weeks ago and this fab hessian fabric which arrived in the post today - I just had this notion of hessian and tweed together, and a strong desire to try out my new buttons . . .


I've cut out a tweedie heart and made a template to cut out some more . . . possibly some new cards for the upcoming craft fairs, for which I'm trying to build up some new stock. I said I wouldn't - "just go with what you've got", I told myself, and yet . . . the magnetic force to create new 'tweedies' was just too strong - darn it :)

The mystery of the tweed 'bundle' from my last post is almost ready to be revealed, he/she's a little shy, is all :) Perhaps at the weekend . . .

Have a peek at some more creative spaces here.

its so excting when parcels arrive from etsy sellers isn't it? I like the colour scheme here, very subtle.
