Gratitude Gallery

Hi, some of my friends gave me arts ‘n’ crafts supplies for my birthday, Yule, or other reasons. Today’s blog is a way to say thank you again, by showing you how I used your gift. Whether you gave me supplies or not, I want to share this with you, just for the fun. I hope you enjoy it!

Pants:Wearable Art by Francesca De GrandisM gave me a gift certificate for Dharma Trading Company. I bought plain white pants. This is what I did with them.

K sent me fabulous beads, and W mailed me earring findings, plus all sorts of really cool filigree beads and bead caps. The pic is of single earrings, b/c I rarely wear pairs.

Ju gave me vintage doilies that I hand painted.

  I go through rags fast, because of all my dying and painting. So my friend Jo gave me a bag of clothes his boss was throwing out. Jo’s always showing up with what I need! I rescued a mint-condition men’s ???-X T-shirt from the rag bag. Am proud of my idea: Cut T off right below the arms to make a kilted skirt. I kilted it instead of gathering it, so that all the stenciled part (it’s my original foliate face design, which I made a stencil of by hand) can be seen – – it lies flat over one thigh.

I am so grateful for my friends.

    I LOVE your creativity! It inspires me to see what is in my fabric stash and see what I can come up with. Now to get off of my butt and actually do it;)
