what i did on my snow day

what an absolute luxury to have some unexpected but very welcomed extra time in the studio!  all uninterrupted (except for some light duty housework & quick meal preps)!  i have been invited to join a couple of spring themed swaps (in addition to the one that i am currently hosting) & so i decided to get cracking-a-lacking on those. 

the lovely sarah is hosting a cute li’l spring swap where you make 6 items that will then be hung on string or ribbon, i reckon…  can you believe it, i am already done!  yay, me!  sswapa.jpg 

the deadline is march 14, but since i was off yesterday…i got ’em done, hehehe!  plus, i’ve been thinking ahead about spring lately…& i’ve been working out ideas for that toy theatre troupe/doll fashion show that i mentioned a couple of posts ago.  i already started collecting the things i wanted to use to design my marie-inspired dress…remember, how i said i was going through a blue phase, hahaha?! 

for sarah’s swap, we had to make one dress


   sswapc.jpg one set of bloomers…

& one bird sswapg.jpg

this one, i had a bit of fun with…it’s a 3-d one that i fashioned out of wire, cardboard, scrap paper, some beads, flowers & a feather.  i am thinking i will make more of these for some other projects.  🙂

i almost hate to part with it, but i will be good, hehehe, & mail this off to sarah in the next day or two…i don’t feel like leaving the house as the roads are still being worked on… i wonder who’s gonna get these lovelies?sswapf.jpg whoever it is, i hope that she will be delighted! 🙂

have a great thursday…gung hay fat choy & all that! xoxo

  16. Mary Ann, I love your work, these are so gorgeous. I love that idea of the toy theater too. When I first started to craft instead of paint I marveled at people like you who seemed to participate in so many things, and then I joined one and it opened the door to even more ideas. Your ability to balance so many creative ventures must be the blessings you receive from your constant generosity. Blessings, Karen
